    Default Larry Johnson Is Washed Up And Heartless

    I personally blame Haley for keeping LJ out there all game when it was obvious he was going nowhere. There are other backs on this team who are better than LJ now and can hit a hole with some speed and illusiveness. LJ is done and he does not have the heart of the lion anymore. Furthermore, if he cannot run the damned ball then he is a liability because he cannot pass protect at all. I give the Chiefs overall some credit for not giving up today, it sucks they lost but itwe all know this year is about rebuilding. Like the announcers said, KC is doing like Dallas did the years right after troy aikman started. The announcers are alot more intuitive than most of us and they firmly believe that Pioli and Haley will build a winner and thats alright with me. Haley is a rookie HC and he will make some bad decisions, but like the players he will learn. We all want to see the Chiefs win and today we thought we might. Maybe if Haley had of gone away from LJ and benched him we could have done just enough to win, but he didn't. So heres how we have to look at this, LJ needs to be gone, and I wouldnt mind seeing Bowe gone at this point either if we could get a 1st, and a 3rd for him in next years draft. I know Bowe has the ability, but he disappears for quarters at a time and sometimes appears to be dogging it. We cannot blame Cassel, it is amazing that with his horrible protection and lack of any running game, he only has 2 i nts this year. He may not be a Peyton Manning or a Drew Brees, but he plays with heart and will get better when his supporting cast gets better. Back to LJ, I wanted so bad to see him do well this year, but its obvious he's not going to... WHo wants to bet Twitlock blames Haley and Cassel for this loss today??

    I personally think it speaks volumes that LJ can rush 20 times for less than 40 yards, yet Cassel can QB sneak for 6 yards on an obvious running down(3rd and 2).

    Jackie Battle is the perfect between the tackles RB. If they are committed to running up the middle even though the offensive line can get no push, then they need to change RB's.

    Run the **** out of LJ and see if he improves throughout the year. He has not really played in two years so he needs to get back into the game. If he gets a little better at least trade value will go from cutting him to a late rounder

    Kinda my point........Barry Sanders couldn't run behind this line!!!! I don't give a damn who it is, if the line isn't atleast decent, NO RB is going anywhere! Charles may get a couple more here and a couple more there but his fumbles would offset anything positive! Any person would be a little lacks if they were getting pounded like LJ has for the last year and a half!

    Behind THIS offensive line.

    LJ- 93 Attempts, 226 yds, 2.4 yard average, 0 TDs,
    8 Catches, 57 Yards, 0 TDs, and he's fumbled 2 times, lost one.


    JC- 15 Attempts, 77 Yards, 5.1 yd average, 0 TD,
    12 catches, 117 yards, 0 TD, fumbled ONCE, and lost it.


    So it's more than a couple more yards here and there, since JC has about 1/6 the number of carries. It's more like JC has twice the number of yards per carry with WAY fewer carries.

    Jamal Charles has done fairly well behind this line on his limited touches, because he's faster for one thing. LJ isn't lax because he's been getting beat up on. He's lax because he got a huge contract and was able to get lazy while Herm was here.

    That huge font was annoying, but I get what you're saying.

    LJ only got the touches he got because of his "EGO EGO EGO" b*tch fit last week. What's scary is that Todd actually accommodated to this @$$-hat the entire game when he clearly had NOTHING.

    Please explain to me why Charles didn't get more carries, Todd. I remember seeing him get one hand off. It was a toss play to the outside (you know, like Al Saunders used to do), and it netted 7 yards. Then you just abandoned that outlet. Why? Are you really going to let some over the hill, slow, lumbering ego-back push you around?

    It's time to bench LJ, Todd Haley. After all, you said you want people on the field who will give us the best chance of winning. Did you see what Dallas did? When Marion Barber wasn't getting it done, they tried a guy by the name of Choice. He ran all over your defense. Guess what else? They stuck with him because he was successful. Take a hint.
