Maybe that is the problem, Most of these guys wouldnt be mentioned in the same breath with LJ last year. So this year when teams are preparing they arent the ones that are teed off on. Regardless of how poorly LJs stat line is you can guarantee that the Bengals arent going to see him as less of a threat then last year.
He is going to get the majority of the focus again this week. LJ didnt have one breakout game to get where he is but after 5 weeks of a very poor showing (part of it his fault) there are some here again that wanna throw the baby out with the bathwater. Cmon I wanna hear you say it, Why dont we give LJ and his contract to say Denver, Oakland or San Diego. It isnt like the Chargers need him with LJ anyway and with the way he is stinking it up we sure dont want him.
I agree his attitude isnt the best right now but would you rather he cried after games like LT. He is mad he isnt getting the help. And he is mad at himself for not producing at the level he holds himself to. But you continually want to throw him under the bus.
Give Adrien Peterson and Marshawn Lynch a couple months of great production and see if they still get the numbers if they are hit in the backfield every play and the O-Line never moves forward.
A good statistician will tell you, you can make stats say anything you want them to.
