It wasn't pretty. Then again, Larry Johnson's style has never been terribly pretty when it comes to football.

In the Kansas City Chiefs ' 23-20 come-from-behind victory over Arizona on Sunday, Johnson was both the goat and the hero.

"Larry Goat" came early. With Arizona leading 7-0, the Chiefs took over on offense. Four plays later, Johnson and quarterback Damon Huard combined to fumble a handoff, and Arizona cashed in the turnover for a 14-0 lead.

It was tough sledding for Johnson from there on out. Fortunately, KC's defense stiffened, and shut the Cardinals out for the rest of the first half. That gave "Larry Hero" a chance to show up; and he did, just before the break.

After Chiefs rookie safety Bernard Pollard blocked a punt, Kansas City was just six yards from pay dirt. The next two plays netted a loss of three yards, and the Chiefs needed someone to step up. Guess who?

"Larry Hero" burst onto the scene. Johnson took a short dump pass from Huard, broke two tackles and dove into the end zone. It was a fantastic play, and the Chiefs suddenly had all the momentum, trailing 14-10.

And then "Larry Goat" showed up again. Johnson fumbled just before halftime, allowing Arizona to tack on a field goal.

The rest of the game was a slugfest. Johnson pounded away at Arizona's defense with little success, running into a wall of red on almost every play. The Cardinals packed the box and held Johnson to just 36 yards on 16 carries, the worst start of his NFL career.

But you had the feeling that "Larry Hero" hadn't made his final appearance just yet.

The Chiefs put together a clutch touchdown drive without him. Huard moved KC's offense down the field and hit Samie Parker perfectly with a 15-yard touchdown pass. The score was 20-17 with just over nine minutes left. Plenty of time for "Larry Hero" to show up and drag the Chiefs over the finish line, right?

Maybe. For a while, it looked like Ty Law would be the hero. With a little less than six minutes remaining, Law picked off rookie quarterback Matt Leinart, putting Kansas City at Arizona's 22-yard line. It was a perfect opportunity for "Larry Hero" to give the Chiefs the lead.

But it didn't come. Johnson did nothing in three plays, and the Chiefs were forced to settle for a tying field goal.

Kansas City's defense stopped Arizona on the ensuing possession. There was about two minutes left in the game. One last opportunity for Larry to play the Hero, or the Goat.

Johnson had endured a long, tough game. He had been battered into frustration. And then out of nowhere, when you least expected it, it happened.

"Larry Hero" burst out of a phone booth and saved the day.

Huard flipped a short screen pass to Johnson, who was seemingly bottled up. Then Johnson broke a tackle by Darnell Dockett and blew past three Arizona defenders, who fell to the ground like dominoes. "Larry Hero" raced down the sideline. Seventy-eight yards and a gruesome facemask later, "Larry Hero" was "Fallen Hero."

Fortunately, Johnson got up and walked off under his own power. The Chiefs kicked the go-ahead field goal. Arizona missed a game-tying attempt a minute-and-a-half later. It was a wild, dramatic, improbable ending to a great football game.

Headless Larry Frightens Fans

Chief fans got an early Halloween surprise from the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday when defensive back Antrell Rolle ripped running back Larry Johnson's head off after a seventy-eight yard screen pass from quarterback Damon Huard.

After receiving the pass and breaking a tackle by Cardinal defender Darnell Dockett, Johnson ran down the sideline when his facemask was grabbed by Rolle who twisted Johnson’s head until it came off and rolled into the endzone.

Johnson lay motionless on the sidelines for several minutes as team trainers and local physicians on the scene worked feverishly to reconnect the head. After several unsuccessful attempts, the pro bowl running back’s head was placed in the team’s Gatorade cooler and Johnson re-entered the game with his helmet affixed to his shoulder pads with Gorilla Glue.

“We needed this win,” said Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards, “And, head or no head, Larry wanted back in the game.”

Small children attending the event began screaming as Johnson came back onto the field. Fans were then cautioned by game announcers to cover their eyes before the next play which gained the Chiefs no yards. Several plays later, Chiefs place kicker Lawrence Tynes completed a 28 yard, game-winning field goal and Johnson’s torso was led to the sidelines by a group of his teammates. An embarrassing moment ensued near the Chiefs’ bench as Johnson attempted to “high five” several players who were standing some 20 feet away.

During a post-game press conference, Edwards was upbeat, “Larry will be okay. I’m no doctor, but the last time I checked, you don’t need a heck of a lot of brains to run the ball. He may not have his head in the game next week, but he’ll play. He’ll play”.

When asked by reporters after the game how he felt about the Chiefs performance, Johnson had no comment.

Headless Larry Arrested

Chiefs running back Larry Johnson, whose head was removed in the first known sports-related decapitation, was arrested early this morning by Kansas City police and charged with assault.

According to a police spokesperson, officers responded to a 911 call and, after arriving at the scene, arrested Johnson who had allegedly attempted to hit his girlfriend but missed and struck a bystander instead. Eyewitnesses reported that the pro-bowl running back was arguing with his companion with the assault occurred.

“They were having a pretty heated discussion,” said one witness who agreed to speak under the condition of anonymity, “but it seemed kind of one-sided. The girl was doing all the talking and Larry was just sort of standing there. Then out of the blue, he took a swing at her. I guess he missed. And, you know, he’s a lot shorter than I thought he would be.”

Police on the scene said that Johnson refused their orders to enter the police vehicle. “We kept asking him to comply, but he just wandered around like he was lost or something.” said one arresting officer, “He even refused to give us his name or acknowledge his rights after they were read to him, so we tasered him.”

Johnson’s attorney released a preliminary statement indicating that a press conference will be held at noon today to issue Johnson’s account of the incident.

I've already said this article wasn't his best work. His body odor at Scout earlier this week was real strong.
Agreed.

Gochiefs,

The dueling Larrys was a good conceit (look it up). It was just overworked a bit. Well, actually, it was really strained to the max. Use the controlling metaphor, but give your reader some credit for intelligence.

Keeping writing. What's good will get better and what's weak, we'll, hopefully there's a cure.

Sounds like you know what you are talking about. I had to think about the article for a while, I was truly intrigued by the angle. It was just a little cute for me, but respect the effort.

dude, that never ending pasta dish is the shizzle. FIVE CHEESE MARINARA?! Top it off with all of the breadsticks and salad you can handle, and you've had yourself a winning date.

Consider the source.

WPI has more sources than phog.net (if that's possible.)

He's an older man. Living alone. In Tulsa. No chix. No prospects. I'd say he's spectacularly, incredibly, flamingly, Seigfried and Royishly....


nah. Just an Okie version of Kostanza. I predict he gets hired by the Yankees as the Ass't to the Traveling Secretary. Possibly in charge of all fixed wing aircraft.

Watch out, Hootie. Skip's horny and on the prowl. If you're lucky, he'll ask you if you're a 'c*cksucker' next. That seems to be his favorite.

No. It's a female. You might have to work your way around a few fellas attached to it, however.
