Ok, ok, I was the one who said trade Priest Holmes. I confess myself, I realize now it was an almighty sin for me to say that. I thought LJ would be the ROB of the future for this franchise, after hearing his comments on 810, and reading them on this BB, and the KC Star BB, I was completely brushed off. The guy is a PUNK. Period. he is not a team player, but, rather a cancer for this franchise. Don't get me wrong, he'll be a great player, just with a bad attitude. Kinda like a Meshon Johnson. The right move would be to keep Priest Holmes, re-sign Derrick Blaylock to a multi-year contract, and get LJ's a** outta here in a trade. It's official, I jumped off the LJ bandwagon.

I'll agree that LJ needs to take a few PR classes, but there were alot of people around here who wanted Cory Dillon VERY badly a few years ago. He's just a frustrated player, much like Cory Dillon was in Cincy.

If LJ turns out to be like Dillion that would be cool. Talented player in a bad situation chomping at the bit to win. When given a chance becomes a great team player. Good scenerio if you ask me.

I can't believe that LJ tells the truth when questioned. :hmmm:

He doesn't give the usual spin that you hear out of football players he tells it the way that he see's it and I would rather have a real player with an attitude than a pu55y with a pu55y.

Hopefully he'll get 100 yards in each of the remaining games and drive up his trading worth. Then I'd like to see him traded for a solid young defender (DE, LB, or DB) with pro-bowl potential. Suggestions please.

BTW, is Boss Bailey doing any good?

I heard his 610 interview, and I guess I'm not as bothered about his comments as many. You would think that a kid coming out of school and getting a 6 mil signing bonus would walk into the office and ask coach, "How can I best help the team?". I don't think Larry ever did that, but then again, if the staff more or less told him to STFD and STFU, who could blame the guy.

I think he's been honest, and I'm getting the impression that either Saunders lied to the young man or kept him out of loop on some decisions that would effect him.

DRAMA. Larry Johnson. More like Meshon Johnson. Please get off Larry's back and just let him play.

It seems like DV and AS have been jerking him around since he got here. He is probably a tad bit upset about that, especially now that he has vindicated himself.

Did he hold out? I actually don't remember! If he did that could have left a bad initial impression.

I don't think so. I think he signed fairly quickly. IIRC.

I cant believe the thought of trading Priest to keep LJ was even in anybody's heads. Ya, lets trade a guy that has just had 4 hall of fame caliber SEASONS to keep a guy who has had two good GAMES

I just think this is a mistake. I believe Johnson's big play ability makes him a potential 2000 yard rusher and a player that can consistently deliver 20-25 TDs a season.

He has speed, power, and is very efficient in his elusiveness.

Plus, he has a style that is his own. That's been a quality of all the great backs.

You are correct.

Many here liked his press conference when he signed, too. Statements like, "I haven't earned it yet." referring to the money.

Guess after awhile he didn't like not being given a chance to earn it.

He signed almost right away. I would be interested in finding out if he was the first because it is quite possible he was. He came to camp with a good attitude. I don't think this is entirely on him.

I admit that it does seem like he has a little too much personal pride. But that doesn't bother me all that much. I think that the comment he made about preferring a Hall of Fame induction over a Super Bowl is a reflection of who he is. In those things most dear to our own hearts, I believe most of us would rather be immortalized for personal excellence than be an anonymous member of a team accomplishment.

Even so, anyone (including LJ) would confess that the thrill of winning it all within the team concept may be the most exciting and satisfying moment of any athelete's life. But it is also reasonable to understand how someone that has a very high standard for themself would be motivated by those things which they can accomplish via their own attributes.

Which also makes it easier for me to understand why Johnson's pride will not allow him to accept that his commitment to personal excellence was being derailed because of a pissing match between Dick Vermeil & Carl Peterson. Let's face it. While Chris Brown was making his mark in Tennessee, LJ was getting screwed. The Titans would have rather had LJ.

You know, ever since I was a kid I would always wish that the Chiefs would be one of those lucky teams that got a great player late in the first round. You know what I mean? It's a neat story how Marino was the last of the five quarterbacks taken that year. We are always the one that gets Todd Blackledge. For once, I want to be the one that gets Dan Marino.

I'm thinking that LJ is possibly that guy. It's always a long shot but nobody can say that it doesn't look like he has what it takes. I think the pride he takes in personal excellence (ala Priest and Marcus) is part of what gives him that chance to be special.

I think we've got the best of both worlds right now.

Priest is the #1 man obviously, but LJ is proving that he's more than an adequate fill-in plus the RBOTF.

Now, if we only had a QBOTF (or a defense, but that's another thread)
