    Default Interesting Info on LJ

    I have been wondering for a while if LJ's legal troubles violate his contract, thus allowing the Chiefs to cut him and completely remove him from the books (including guaranteed money). This article pretty much answers that question for me.

    Chiefs, Larry Johnson to Meet Over*Contract - Arrowhead Pride

    I do not think a team would usually exercise their right to cut a big time player without keeping their commitment in regards to guaranteed money, but in this case Larry has repeatedly violated his contract and stated that he does not want to be part of the team.

    My guess is that Larry will either sign a new contract at a great discount, or he will be cut. I am almost certain he will be cut.

    LJ has to meet with Pioli next week, and I would guess Pioli would very much like to keep LJ but would also like to reduce the 3+ million he will be owed. I for one do not like LJ as a person but, if he steps it up, well with him, gonzo, bowe and engram as targets, cassell could have a hay day. We will just need to beef up both the Oline and the defense. If we could get boldin, I'd take him.

    Teah, if we keep him playing well, along side TG and Cassel, we'll be a much better team than we were in 2008!

    I can tell you right now that the Chiefs became a throwing team the second Haley was hired!!! With Cassell at QB, if the O line can give him 5 seconds, the Chiefs will be airing it out this year which again means another big year for TG if he is here and maybe a 1000 yd receiver also.

    We should keep lj, and run his butt in to the ground. Maybe he will straighten his butt up, and become a worthy member of the Chiefs. Do not know, but for all he has done, he should make amends to KC Chiefs! Prove himself to be worthy of the uniform of the,

    K.C. CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As much as I would like to see him get his worn out by running the ball, I would rather see him getting worn out by getting involved in the blocking game while we air it out for the afternoon!!
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    Well since he can not attend night clubs anymore, maybe he will take training classes on how to block and protect your QB.

I think you all need to actually go to Chiefs.com and watch the latest video of Haley's interview from his first team get together so you can get a sense as to where the new Head Coach is going. He isn't gonna do 500+ carries and not throw the ball , infact may not even be 300+ carries, it will be a completly different Chiefs look and I for one am excited to see it and all the wishing for bad things to happen won't make it come true. Make the change to the posotive guys, it's actually a good thing
    We were talking about a fitting punishment for LJ. It was sarcasm. Get off me.

    I agree, Haley is a pass first coach, I could see this turning into an Edgerrin James type of situation that AZ had last year. Edg said he wasn't being paid to be a lineman, LJ won't be happy being a "lineman", he still thinks he's an ProBowl runner.

    I bet LJ spits at the idea of being a blocking running back.

    Haley was a pass first coach because he had 2 of the best receivers in the league, a vet QB, a very solid 3rd WR and a solid TE whereas he had a rookie that couldn't take the load and an aging vet carrying the ball. We're not going to see that same level of pass offense next year. If the Haley/Gailey tandem is smart (which I think they are) and LJ is around, they're going to use his services as well as those of Charles and Smith to create a better balance in the offense. Using our running game to complement the pass game is going to take a lot of pressure off of whichever QB is starting next season. We don't have the same tools that Arizona did, so don't expect the same type of play.
