Basically I'll be watching the games to root for LJ the rest of the season.

(Plus, he's on my fantasy team)

Yeah, the freaking yardage record. He's liable to put up 500+ rushing yards.

This is just silly. Our run defense is NOT a problem.

The run D isn't that bad.

I loved this little bit here (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/recap;_ylt=Aqln38EeDQRtJ6mVVHO_.1E5nYcB?gid=20061210012&prov=ap):

"Johnson ran for 120 yards for the Chiefs -- but take away his 47-yard gain in the second quarter, and his other 22 carries netted only 73 yards."

Stuff like this drives me crazy. Larry Johnson runs for a buck-twenty on the best defense in the NFL and the AP declares "well other than LJ's long runs, all he had were short ones!"

This is why 15 Baltimore defensive players will make the Pro Bowl this year; because the media has bent over backwards to put the most positive spin on that defense, and fans will buy that schtick every freaking time.

This league drives me nuts sometimes. Seriously.

True. He's no Derick Anderson.
