    Default Chiefs canít spell team with LJ

    More from the world of

    Itís too late now. Larry Johnson got his guaranteed millions, a hefty new contract that bought him the freedom to pout and behave selfishly at his own discretion.

    He arrived at Sundayís game in a black, chauffeured Maybach 62, one of the worldís 10 most expensive cars, priced at $350,000-plus, Mercedes Benzís answer to the Rolls-Royce, a vehicle intended for mega-celebrities in major cities and the filthy rich.

    We know now how Larry plans to handle his newfound wealth and responsibility ó poorly.

    We know now how he plans to repay the Kansas City football fans, teammates, coaches, front-office executives and representatives of the media who chose to overlook his immaturity and support him ó heís going to make us look like fools.

    Sundayís game with the Bengals was it for me. Iíve given up on Larry Johnson.

    He is what he is ó the guy who declined to pass-block in Dallas in 2005, the guy some Chiefs players swore would become a deadly locker-room cancer when armed with a huge signing bonus, the guy Dick Vermeil claimed wore diapers, the guy who spiked the ball for no reason with 4 minutes to play in Sundayís game.

    I could go on. We all have a Larry Johnson story. Remember when he stated on HBO that black players preferred playing for black coaches because they know what itís like to be a young black athlete?

    Yeah, I thought about that comment Sunday when the Chiefs were trying to climb into first place in the AFC West, the Bengals were trying to dig out of an AFC Central hole, and Larry Johnson was throwing the ball in anger and Cincinnatiís Chad Johnson was refusing to finish a pass route, which led to a critical interception.

    Johnson and Johnson, two of the most selfish and buffoonish players in the NFL. I could see whatís happening in Cincinnati ó Marvin Lewis has lost control of his football team because he and the organization tolerated Ocho Cincoís bojanglery for too long ó happening in Kansas City.

    Herm Edwards is in the process of getting sold out by the running back who likes to pretend that heís down for the cause.

    Well, now we know what Larryís cause is ó Larry Johnson. All season heís carried himself as if his 52 teammates donít care about winning, as if the coaching staff wants to run for 10 yards, as if he could double as offensive coordinator.

    Why not master the art of being a complete running back before demanding Mike Solariís job? On Sunday Johnson had a careless goal-line fumble and whiffed on at least one pass block that got Damon Huard creamed.

    No one threw a sideline tantrum or tried to show Larry up. His teammates moved on. They gave Larry respect. With each selfish act that respect is evaporating. His late-game spike of frustration cost the Chiefs 5 yards, stopped the game clock and could have easily cost the Chiefs the game.

    His poisonous attitude is beginning to take root in the locker room. I blame cornerback Benny Sappís meltdown partially on Larry Johnson. When your highest-paid, highest-profile player is constantly brooding and acting unprofessionally in full public view, itís not surprising when other players join in.

    Look at the 1-4 Bengals and Marvin Lewis; they were darlings of the league just a couple of seasons ago. Everyone loved Chad Johnsonís look-at-me buffoonery, and Lewis pretended that Johnsonís antics had no impact on team chemistry. Locker-room disputes between Johnson and members of the Cincinnati coaching staff were all explained away as baseless rumors.

    Does any of this sound familiar? Did Herm Edwards not open a postgame news conference this season explaining away the ďfrustrated emotionsĒ of his players after an on-field tirade by Larry Johnson and Damon Huard and an alleged halftime locker-room tirade by several players?

    At some point, Edwards and Carl Peterson are going to have to take a united stand against Johnsonís behavior. The Patriots and the Colts are the two best franchises in the league over the last five or six years. Yes, theyíre blessed with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. But the organizations are also smothered in a team-first attitude.

    Obviously, giving Johnson a huge contract was a mistake, one that I canít blame Peterson for making. What do the Chiefs do from here?

    The next time LJ acts up, Iíd deactivate him for the following game. Sure, you risk alienating him, losing him mentally and emotionally. But thatís already taking place. Johnson has backed the Chiefs into a corner. Edwards and Peterson might as well fight back and gain respect from the 52 other players in the locker room.

    analysis...

    Fat overweight journalist is bitter. He just sat down and figured out that LJ makes more each day at practice than makes in a year.

    figured out that if he took every penny from his paychecks for the next 5 years and didn't pay taxes, or eat, he still couldn't afford LJ's new sweet wheels...



    Is LJ immature...yeah somewhat. Can he learn, yeah definitely. Is LJ a natural born leader...NO...but frankly that's usually the QBs job anyhow. If he works his a$$ off in practice and cleans up his stupid penalties, I frankly say he's better on your team than on another...(I'd be happy to see him in SF red and gold)

    as for deactivating LJ...remember Herm is the coach..."We play to win the game"...odds are probably better with LJ than without...
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    This guy is a fat pig that has always liked to stir the pot! He is so full of crap it's unbelievable!! Sapps meltdown is somehow LJ's fault??? What a joke!

    LJ definetly missed that glaring block that led to a sack but the goal line fumble??? Two guys were on him and the D back simply made a good play on the ball! He hacked his arm with all he had. In no way do I see this as a "careless fumble". He had a great run to get to the goalline!! Sometimes players just make good plays and this was one of those times.

    Not to agree with or to be a apologist but this is the one aspect of the article that has merit IMO. LJ was carelessly carrying the ball loosely in one hand like a loaf of bread out away from his body; it was a stripped ball looking for a place to happen.

    Lets just say for the sake of arguement it was a careless fumble, It has been a lot of touches since LJ did fumble, He isnt a Droppie Parker, Im sure this drop will help to keep him on track with ball management, I dont like seeing him drop the ball, especially at the goal line, but he doesnt do it often, and every now and then you need something bad to get to something good.

    All I am saying is after x number of carries without a fumble, you still worry about ball security but it goes further back in your mind. Maybe this will bring it back to the front of his mind and make ball security a bigger concern so he can start another streak.

    Jumbled but those are my thoughts, btw how many times has the now traded Bennett fumbled and there are those saying awww hate to see him go. Looks like he was a good person, but he wasnt a star, bring on the draft picks, bring back Priest.

    Go CHIEFS
