Put him in a category with Ronnie Brown and Willis McGahee.

Said toward the end they would trade LJ for Rudi Johnson, Ronnie Brown, and (I didn't catch the last part, but I believe also) Shaun Alexander.

There is a HUGE difference between having 1 good year and damn near taking the rushing title with only 9 starts... in which he had over 100 yds rushing in each one of those starts.

An ELITE player is one who takes his team to a whole new level.... LJ definately qualifies.

KC last year without LJ goes 5-11 or 6-10 at BEST.

Rudi Johnson is an elite back omg I just about lost all respect in the espn guys. I can understand if they said Edge and Tomlinson but Rudi Johnson wtf. If LJ would of played all 16 games we wouldn't be talking about any of these other dudes. LJ is in a class all by himself and this year he will show why he is an elite back.

Sooooo, Hoge said he would take Brown over LJ because Brown had big play potential while Larry did not. They said this despite Larry having 15 20+ yard carries on 336 total carries, and Brown having only five on 207 carries.

LJ was actually second in the league in 20+ yard carries. Tiki was first with 16.

I'd love to be at the Fantasy Football draft where Merril Hodge has the balls to take Rudi Johnson with the 1st overall pick over Larry Johnson.

I also like how at the end of the segment where they talked about LJ, Trey Wingo addresses LJ directly and says something to the effect of, "Well, LJ, if you can show us that you can do this over 16 games, maybe we'll include you in our elite back category." I'm sure that's LJ's motivation this year -- to win over the hearts and minds of Wingo, Tom Jackson, and Merril Hodge.
