Blaylock will be gone next year, add 3rd down type back to our draft wish list.

Blaylock was doing OK, but I dont' think he has the same speed that LJ has. He may not have had the same impact that LJ did.

Blaylock is plenty fast. The one thing that Johnson has that Blaylock does not is size.

p.s. what did you do to earn all that neg rep in so few posts?

Blaylock is one of the fastest guys on the team.

Except for the fact Blaylock is the fastest man on the team and LJ is slow as hell, yeah you are right.

If it makes you feel better I still want his ass gone.

Oh and I'm still doubting LJ, his long runs came from huge wide open holes, he didn't bounce off of tackles like Priest does. He finally did show a little speed on his longer TD run, but still slow for a RB, IMO.

Yet LJ has more "pop" at the point of contact than Blaylock does.

I think so too. While LJ doesn't have the blazing speed of Blaylock, today he was showing a burst to the hole that I hadn't seen before. And when LJ gets that big train cranked up, it takes a lot to stop him. I also saw him running away from LB's after catching the ball as well. Plus he has no problem getting to the corner as he showed today. LJ is not slow.

Larry is pretty fast. I don't know what game you were watching, but he's got good speed.

Of course I really should watch the game since Pittsburgh is in it. I know Ben Roethlisberger's grandma you know.

Yeah, and I don't think 40 times have anything to do with it. I think it is the player's rate of acceleration. Okoye is a good example. He was a track guy who had sub 10 second speed in the 100. But he couldn't get that 260 lbs moving quick enough to do him any good. He couldn't get to the open field to use it. In fact, I wrote Marty a letter and asked him why he didn't use the shovel pass to get Okoye the first few steps so he could use his speed. I don't remember if he answered but to this day I don't remember the Chiefs EVER using the shovel pass. A lot of other teams use it, I don't know why we don't.

I think LJ speed-wise is a lot like Marcus Allen was. He didn't look fast running, but he was movin'. I think it's because they both take pretty long strides. Today LJ got in the groove and stopped dancing in the backfield, and thus he looked good. Nice hands on a couple catches too.

Today, the diapers came off. :)

I think LJ showed enough today that will be alright if Blaylock decides to take a walk. In fact, we should let Blaylock walk. Hes got great talent but is too similiar to Priest in style. I like the fact that LJ has more power and is a grinder, which is the opposite of Priest. Change of Pace.

The other good thing about keeping LJ is that when our offensive line falls apart, we will be able to bring in road grader types and use LJ's straight ahead style more effectively. Big, quick, agile lineman who can kick ass (Shields and Roaf) don't grow on trees, unfortunately.

KC uses it, just not very often.

Marty didn't use it because he was boring.

And you're right, it IS about acceleration. LJ was hitting that hole like a mutherphucker.

LJ followed his blockers today.

Blaylock relies on his speed. He does a poor job of getting in his blocker's pockets and waiting for the play to develop.

I think we've seen the best of Blaylock. I think we're getting an idea what Johnson can do.

I'd love to resign Blaylock and then trade him, but I don't see it happening.

At this point we're in a no lose situation.

Blaylock can leave, and if he does, we've seen what LJ can do.

We can resign Blaylock and trade Johnson, and if we do, we've seen what Blaylock can do.

Both can be productive. Frankly, I'd like to keep them both. Not that it's an option...

Yep, like the '72 Dolphins. They had Csonka as a power back and Mercury Morris as the speed back. They also had a tweener named Jim Kiick. About the time you got ready for one of them, they'd show you one of the others. I'd love to see the Chiefs do that but then I would spend considerable time arguing with the opponents of RBBC. When Marty was in Cleveland, he had two big backs that each rushed for 1,000 yards in a season. Marty killed teams with those guys. One of them was Ernest Byner and I think the other one was named Mack. At any rate RBBC has a history of success in the NFL if it is done correctly.

I think props are in order for LJ in this game, even for the haters. He was a major reason we won.
