From another board. Anyone else see this?

Watching the Metro Sports Zone commentary by Dave Stewart tonight here is what he said(NOT ME)
Chiefs vets went to management at the end of the season and suggested that the team would be better off trading Johnson because of poor team chemistry.

He said that one veteran lineman said that he would rather retire than to block for Johnson another year.

At the Pro Bowl, Johnson supposedly said that he would not mind a trade to either the Jets (he has an apartment in NY) or the Browns because of his fascination with Jim Brown.

His career won't last more than 2-3 more years, anyway. Get a first rounder while you can. The re-building year or two are here, you might as well go all out.

You have to be bad before you can get good.

Tell those vets to STFU and STFD.

The only vets on this team will be retitirng this year and everyone else isn't half the man of the one in front of him leaving.

LJ wants the same thing Marvin Harrison wanted only he's ****ing MIDWEST enough to stand up for himself and say when he's unhappy. He knows it's one thing to carry the load and quite another to be asked to face the Normandy of*the NFL playoffs without any help or spark.

Well, he was. The base plan didn't work. Honestly, Baltimore and KC both should be looking at why they lost and looking even harder at what changes they should have made because Indi had no business in the super bowl.

Indi pulled a NE and went in on desire alone...

"You gotta get rid of him, Carl! He's making me look bad, not being able to get past the guys I should be blocking. I'm just about to get paid in free agency, and people are starting to say that I'm a crappy left tackle!"

If any of this was true, I doubt Carl would come out and volunteer to give LJ a new deal that he hasn't even asked for. Unless the vets were Hicks and Sims.

And I think it was a hodge-podge of dog$#it offensive lineman.

Much as I hate to say it Huard was our Deberg - the perfect smashmouth offense for this year. LJ was just brutal. Moody, but fan-friggen-tastic in the right situations. He's no Holmes but damned if he didn't try to be.

Green just kept coming*in and trying to create something that wasn't there. I love the guy, but our offense is now about*seeing what's open and not turning the ball*over, THEN*creating opportunities. Take what's there and wait for*the 2 or 3 KO blows a game passing. IF we go down early he pushes and tries to make a play that's not there.

Green is pushing...

Behind our shitty line?? Very doubtful-I wasn't trying to insinuate LJ was not productive-he had an amazing year. But if you compare tape-he used to make guys pay to tackle him-that seemed to be missing last year. He got owned in the Playoffs too-mostly due to Horrendous play calling, but there were several post saying LJ did not have his heart in that game.

If KC would shop LJ they would have their share of offers.

I'd take either:

Clevelands #3 overall. They are desperate for offense. Especially a RB. They want Adrian Peterson who isn't exactly Mr. Durable. Crennel is a lame duck coach, their GM Phil Savage is rumored to be on the hot seat, and it would be a huge boost for ticket sales.

@ # 3 we could take the GTech WR or Joe Thomas, listen to offers to trade back. Tampa would have a fit if they thought we would take the WR. They love him. We could probably pry a 3rd from them to move up 1 spot and still get the LT.

Giants: I'd start out trying to get their first, a third, and Brandon Jacobs. I'd take that.

Pittsburgh: Where LJ is from, they are looking for a big back this offseason, rumored to anyway. I'd take a first and Willie Parker and try to get a 4th as well.

Dallas: You just know Jerry Jones would crap himself if he thought he could aquire LJ. I'd take a first, fourth, and Marion Barber any day.

That's four just off the top of my head.
Carl's too proud of drafting him to consider it though.

CupidStunt
02-27-2007, 07:41 AM
Gettin' kind of sick of it all, to be honest, and I love LJ.

But as for trading, don't even kid yourself that we'd get the NUMBER 3 overall! Hahahahaha. It'd take our first pick, LJ and maybe more.

Which, now we're talking about it, I'd do instantly. A straight swap -- Johnson for Joe Thomas or the best quarterback available -- would please me immensely.

booger
02-27-2007, 07:56 AM
Normally I'd say no frickin way.

But I bet Cleveland would consider it with their need for a top back and Peterson while being a big time prospect is also injury prone. Something LJ is not. Not yet anyway.

What if the players have been trying all year to get the issue addressed and the FO and coaching staff have refused to do anything? At some point, you know the players are going to start leaking stuff to the media out of frustration. We're at that point.

I can understand that. I think a lot of what you're seeing is general discontent from the Vermeil-era veterans. If the team is truly going to move on and wholly embrace Herm's style of coaching, then it may be time to get rid of the veterans. They may not ever really be happy, and maybe LJ is serving as the focus for their general malaise.

That being said, all of those veterans on the offensive line are quality, character guys. If they've got a problem with LJ, maybe there actually is some issue with him?

Anyway, I understand Chief's fans desires to push a youth movement. It's an inevitable step if the team is ever going to make a run, so I can see how easy it is to just dismiss the veterans and embrace LJ instead.

LJ has been a malcontent from day 1. He's reminding more and more of Terrell Owens... exceptional talent paired with a terrible personality.


Personally I'm pretty tired of LJ's act. He's an asshole. And after this last year it appears that he's not all that exceptional without a Pro Bowl O-line in front of him.

I put a lot of stock into team chemistry. It's easy to say "get rid of the old guys" but what makes anyone think the new guys we bring in are going to have any more success getting along with a redass like LJ?

At some point, you know the players are going to start leaking stuff to the media out of frustration. We're at that point. Expect to hear more and more of this throughout the year unless something is done.

If he's that much of a problem, he should be traded. Or at least not extended until it is addressed. He's one of Carl's Son's you know. Just like Tony G and Derrick Thomas was.

I don't see Shields as the bitching type. Wiegmann either, but I'm sure he isn't happy about possibly being pushed into retirement ( rumor, just speculation ) because he doesn't fit the offense, even though he has been considering playing only a couple more years when DV was still here. Kennison, Parker, and Hall were pissed that the passing game went away. Green never seemed to transition to the change in offensive philosophy. I'm sure Gonzalez is just fine when he gets his catches and doesn't have to pass block all game.

So I see where LJ can be a distraction, but I'm sure alot of the frustrations with offensive vets has lots to do with no more DV, Saunders, TRich, Roaf, etc and all the other changes as well.

I can't see why he would be a pain in the ass to players on defense other than the cell phones in the meetings and such, which is bad enough.

If they trade him it should be because he doesn't seem to put much effort in his pass blocking or pass routes for that matter, he doesn't seem to want to stay in KC, or we just can't afford his new rich upcoming contract. Not this other stuff.

I don't want to see what has amounted to 80% of our offense be traded, but I would laugh if we traded him to the shithole that is Cleveland.

I still stand by my original statement regarding LJ being a malcontent and a lockerroom cancer - trade him to Green Bay and let him have fun in small town America.

I say trade him and get maximum value for him. This team is not going to do anything until there is a mini rebuild at the very least. Way too many holes to fill and if Johnson is here or not the Chiefs are not going to compete for anything next year. I agree, just ship him out because where not going anywhere anytime soon. The O-line has to be re-built, we have no recievers, quarterback is a big question, so just ship him off and get max value out of him.

Teams that have traded a RB for a player or pick have usually come out on the better end, Champ Bailey for Clinton Portis. These malcontents like LJ and Jared Allen are going to be nothing but a distraction, especially if the Chiefs start losing next year. There is something to this story and the Chiefs need to start over from the ground up anyway. Like many have stated above there is no way Carl trades LJ because he is a "Carl guy." Carl's ego is much more important to him than the teams performance.

Just like Tony G, Carl wants to say that "he drafted LJ and look how great he is and look how great I am for drafting him." It's about Carl's legacy. He hasn't learned at all from singing these old guys like Priest and Trent to long term deals. LJ is going to cause all kinds of team chemistry problems and if you look at history of running backs that get as many carries as LJ, he's going to be broken down in a couple of years. He'll be another beat up guy that is kicking our ass in the salary cap.

LJ isn't winning us the Superbowl by himself. His supporting cast is getting worse by the year and it sounds like none of them want to play with him anyway. So ship him off and get some talent in return. His bitching and whining, some of which is valid is just going to get worse, louder, and be an even bigger distraction. Give him time and he's going to be as big a pain in the ass as Randy Moss and TO.

They may not ever really be happy, and maybe LJ is serving as the focus for their general malaise..

If that's the case then they need to be let go. Herm should be allowed to bring in guys that will fight for him and not against him. Every coach deserves that. Herm will be here 3 more years and if some of the players aren't willing to accept that then they have no business on this team.

That being said, all of those veterans on the offensive line are quality, character guys. If they've got a problem with LJ, maybe there actually is some issue with him?.

LJ probably is the problem but I tend to side with one of the few players on offense that actually earned his paycheck. I don't have a problem with trading him if a good deal comes along but if it is done to make a few aging vets that won't be around in 2-3 yrs happy I have a problem with that.

Anyway, I understand Chief's fans desires to push a youth movement. It's an inevitable step if the team is ever going to make a run, so I can see how easy it is to just dismiss the veterans and embrace LJ instead.

It's way past time for one. This team needs to trim the fat and the players that are unhappy and start over.

So I see where LJ can be a distraction, but I'm sure alot of the frustrations with offensive vets has lots to do with no more DV, Saunders, TRich, Roaf, etc and all the other changes as well.
Or the fact that for the past five years the offense has been the side of the ball winning games and they got castrated last year.

Johnson is a meltdown, TO issue waiting to happen.

He doesn't appear to be a team player, isn't said to be good for chemistry, doesn't pass block well.....If he were sent down the road to aquire draft picks, I wouldn't blink an eye.

The team needs a youth movement, and if trading him helps speed up that process, so be it.

Its about aquiring more draft picks....replacing 1 malcontent with 2 first day picks for me.

If the Chiefs didn't have as many holes to fill and so many aged players, I'd probably not be of the same mind. I don't think 1 player is the difference any longer.....Its time to gut this fish ala NO last year and have 30-35 new players on the roster IMO.

You wouldn't get more than 1 #1 for Johnson just because of his position. And Cleveland in no way parts with #4 for him....You might get the Jets 1 though..

if he isn't worth a #1 in trade then he isn't worth a new big contract.

Okay lets say we did trade LJ to the Browns, and Allen to the Bengals for first round picks and get #3 and the # 18 picks in the draft. This is what I believe will happen if it's a total rebuilding phase.
KC will pick Calvin Johnson at the #3 spot, and then trade up with #18 and #23 picks for Levi Brown. The other option is keep #18 pick , and attain a top flight CB then trade down to the end of the 1st round, and pickup Brian Leonard. This is of course is the scenario if everything has to a shittier place with the relations to players that we don't know about.

true, but I didn't factor in other possible trades by other teams :D

The defense thing could be either Willis or Dameyion Hughes, but then their would be a huge hole at RB. Hence, my suggestion to trade down for Leonard.

If veterans are threatening to retire because of LJ, trade his ass. How much of a dick does someone have to be for another player to do that. Locker rooms are filled with assholes. It takes a special variety to motivate a guy to go to the GM and refuse to play on the same team.

LJ is a great runner, no doubt. I don't think he's a great running back though. He sucks in the passing game. As I mentioned in another thread, I believe that we were a better offensive team with Priest (2002-2005) than we were with Larry Johnson. Granted, that is not really a good comparison because Priest was so damn good, too. But we weren't shabby with that one guy who left for the Jets, either.

If LJ is a huge distraction, get rid of him. Don't pay him first, then realize it isn't going to work.

Problem is we won't get anything for him.

then......

Draft Joe Thomas and a Defensive tackle, and watch them both get eaten alive in the raider games next season, here are some more highlights from those two games:

while ty law falls on his ass,

kawika runs in circles waving his arms,

Bell launches himself into the nearest guard or te and falls down,

Sims and reed alternate taking plays off,

Tamba eats whoever they start at qb again,

Dj makes 10 tackles, 2 sacks intercepts the ball, and then gets hurt trying to tie his shoe coming off the field when waters steps on his hand and breaks it.

Wesley blows the coverage on a crucial fourth quarter drive, allowing moss to cruise in for the go ahead, he then inexplicably is called for roughing the passer even though he is a good thirty yards away from anyone who touched the ball on that particular play..

Knight holds another pep talk, on the bench this time,

Kennison drops another one,

parker jumps in the air for no reason and drops another one,

Sampson pukes on gonzalez's shoe causing him to have to miss the rest of the raiders game after catching for 100 yds and 2 td's,

hall runs towards the wrong goaline,

Wiegmann pulls up on every dive up the middle,

...........and Holmes and green toast them with swing passes, and toss plays for 800 total yds and 14 td's in our only two wins for the season.

The Colts only got a 2nd and a 5th for Marshall Faulk when he was in the prime of his career. He helped the Rams win the SuperBowl and become a record setting offense for years. He was also MUCH better at running routes, and pass blocking. He was also a classy guy.

I'm thinking if we can get a 1st and 3rd from somebody we'd better do it.




As for the veterans complaining about L.J. Carl wouldn't have any clue how LJ acts when Carl isn't standing there, unless the other players spoke up about it. So, I think that if it's really that bad, it's their JOB to let somebody know. Also, think about how much money a guy like Will Shields gets in a year. If he would really rather retire (and forgo all that money) just to avoid playing with LJ, then you have to imagine that it's a TERRIBLE situation. Hard to take LJ's side on this one.

Or just draft a running back in the first couple rounds of the draft every 3 years, use them up, and get rid of them like everybody else. The RB position has been the most replaceable position for the last ten years in the NFL.

Good luck with this. LJ is a dickhead. He's a racist boob that is bitter he didn't grow up in the ghetto. He wants REALLY badly to be hard, and the more he's reminded he isn't the more angry and stupid he acts.

Power runners have very short life spans. Every NFL back that has rushed for more than 400 carries fell off the year after and was out of football within three years except for Erik Dickerson. And he wasn't a power runner and only had one good season after he broke 400 carries.

Basically you have a total jerk player that's a cancer in the locker room whose knees are about to go nuclear because he's on the wrong side of his 400 carry year. You think people see that and think "Just what I've always wanted! A whiny little brat that pisses off his team and has too much milleage!" and are just screaming to give their draft picks away for him?

Yeah, Good luck with that.

Larry is owed big money. He’s earned it. You could make a pretty strong argument he’s the NFL’s second-best running back after LaDainian Tomlinson.

You think his inflated ego and his agent are retarded?

And then there's this:

Larry is far from the most popular player in the Chiefs’ locker room with the players. He’s aloof, moody and constantly distracted by his desire to be misunderstood and to be a member of Jay-Z’s posse.

“If they give him a huge contract, they’ll create a monster,” one Chiefs player told me this offseason. “And I told Herm that.”

Johnson, according to another teammate, can be a disruptive force in locker-room chemistry. The team’s most valuable and important player, according to a teammate, oftentimes sits in meetings text messaging friends and associates.

This is all true, GoChiefs. LJ is a cancer, running on his last legs, and he's an asshole to boot.

I think anyone that complains about Larry Johnson listens to the media too much and has chicken little syndrome.

I don't think people understand that Larry Johnson is quite likely the greatest player this franchise has seen since Derrick Thomas passed. In fact, he could be even better than Derrick Thomas ever was. That would make him the greatest player this franchise has seen in almost 40 years. He's something special and I want to cherish every moment he's in red. Trading him away won't be good for the franchise.

As soon as they decided they were going to give him 400 carries i said trade him now. That's all well and good about him being great if he was a player who played a different position. He is playing the easiest position in the league to replace....I don't believe you should ever give a RB a second contract...

I'd always use young RB's and never ever pay one big money, so I could spend my money on other positions.

This is all brought even further up the scale by Johnsons attitude at this time. Paying a RB a huge contract which he'll likely be unproductive for, for most of it is not a good idea.....see Priest Holmes.

Or just draft a running back in the first couple rounds of the draft every 3 years, use them up, and get rid of them like everybody else. The RB position has been the most replaceable position for the last ten years in the NFL. Sure if you trade LJ there is going to be a drop off, but it's not going to directly translate into wins and losses..and you can get a 2-3 great players out of the deal.

Do you really think with CP's draft history that he will get 2 or 3 great players out of a trade? Or even 2 or 3 good ones? He might get 2 or 3 picks, but the odds of them all being good are virtually non-existant.

The last reason on earth to not make a move is because you are scared you can't draft or find other players. If you really believe that in yourself you frankly shouldn't be a GM.

Good teams make the moves they know are right and are confident they'll make good picks to replace them.

http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showthread.php?t=53444
I was searching the web and found a Chiefs Planet link with Jay Cutler in the title. Naturally I couldn't resist and went in. This was good for a laugh.

It started out pretty complimentary, but in about three threads they all talked each other into believing he sucks. Apparently they believe that Brodie Croyle has the same arm strength and could even have a better arm than Jay Cutler. I kind of made a smart ass reply to this and they all got up in arms suggesting that this throw: was no big deal and that Croyle and other QB's "make those throws all the time." Then when I tried to explain the ball traveled 70 yards in the air, they played some clip of Croyle throwing the ball 50 yards with a huge bulk of the yards being the receiver running with ball as evidence they are the same thing.

I shouldn't have gone in. I never go to Chiefs Planet because they talk about stupid stuff like ball shaving but I succumbed to my curiosity and paid the price! I needed my fellow maners to witness the idiocy of these people so I thought I'd post the link. \

Just going off the history of guys who carry the ball that many times. And RB is a position that generally doesn't last as long as others while being easier to replace.let me ask you a simple question...

when was the last time we "replaced" a rb with someone the caliber of lj?

and if rb's are so easy to replace, why don't all the teams in the league just go ahead and replace their running backs with younger, faster, and likely to get into the hall of fame when their career is over?

how many running backs have turned into truly elite players on our team (not counting priest holmes or marcus)?

to me, the idea of trading our best players is a little weird...

of course, herm's whole offensive philosophy is more than a little wierd...

i wish we could get dv or al back to bring back our offense that left when herm got here...

one-dimensional offenses can be stopped pretty easily in the playoffs, imo...

Where there's smoke there is probably fire. Reports of LJ having bad chemistry in the locker room are all over the internet and print this off season and now making it onto TV. Probably something to it. :hmmm:



It would sure put more weight in DV's diaper coment.

I'd hate to think about trading away a player the caliber of LJ. At the same time Terrell Owens is one of the best WRs in the game and I wouldn't want to see us sign him - even if he's cheap. Even with top shelf skills and ability, a bad attitude can be detrimental to a team.


At this point I'd have to ask what can we get out of him? I doubt we can get a first but then again who knows. A higher first round pick or low first round with another mid round pick thrown in and I might be tempted at this point. I really don't see him sticking around after his contract is up anyway which won't be much longer. If we can get something out of him now, it would be worth considering.

Too bad more fans, and those in the media, didn’t see it, because it would dispel their notion of him being a bad apple. He’s a difficult apple at times, there’s no doubt about that.

I think LJ is a great player. One of the best in the league in fact. However, I do not think he is the best thing for the Chiefs.

You could have all the best talent in the league on one team but if there is no chemistry then you are not going to win a championship. I believe LJ is a cause of the bad chemistry on the chiefs. Therefore I think we should trade him and because of the value he is as a trade commodity atm.

What could we get for him?

A few draft picks and maybe a defensive player.

What we would do with them?

Draft a running back, sign a blue collar veteran RB, and rebuild you're team with the rest of the picks.

Bad chemistry potentially elimated and team infused with some new blood.

What could we get for him?

A few draft picks and maybe a defensive player.

Dream on.

If we could get 2 #1's trade him.

- He's due a big pay-day

- RBs don't last long, plus...

- He has crossed a line (rushing attempts) that breaks running backs down. His chances of not finishing the 2008 season seem pretty good.

- He may or may not be a locker-room cancer

- RB is one of the most easily replacable positions

- This offense, and team, might not be going anywhere soon. If rebuilding, why keep a player with a shelf-life as short as LJ's?

I always laugh when I hear this people must've forgotten how long it was when he actually had a primetime RB before the Vermeil era. Great players aren't a dime a dozen PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am with you on this, the Chiefs had a lot of busts at that position for it to be so easy.

That was Marty's approach, not that finding a RB was difficult. When you trot out scrubs like Donnell Bennett and Rashaan Shehee and expect good results, well....

That's the guy. Thanks, Mr. Sully.

You know, I'm surprised he wasn't more successful. With those physical attributes, a human giraffe should have been able to peer into the defense and gain three yards.

The Chiefs had a lot of busts at RB because Marty is a terrible offensive talent evaluator, with the O-Line as the exception.

We would be lucky to get a mid round number 1 for him let alone 2 number ones. Matter of fact the most likely scenario is to trade him and our number 1 for a higher number one. and a number 3.

I agree he is likely to breakdown this season especially if he is used like he was last season.

He's proven he's a top 5 rusher in this league.

It's not that LJ can't catch pass it's that DV didn't have any confidence in him and Herm has shifted the emphasis from the HB as utility-belt to HB as battering ram.

He can catch and run just fine.

To promote trading LJ is like diving in head first to measure the stupid singularity. Nothing, not even light, or Donnie Edwards, escapes its gravity. It's a compressed and unimaginably strong force that unfortunately sucks in any innocent whom may pass by, dragging them headlong into the abyss of infinate dumbassery.

He has the ability to be the next Jim Brown.

Anyone remember how much his teammates blasted his off the field antics?...

I want the chiefs to win superbowls. Does having Larry Johnson help us do that right now? Have we won one with him? Did we win a playoff game with him?

No, we have many needs which by trading him we may well be able to fulfill.

No one disputes his ability as a running back. I do however dispute that he is good for our footbal team atm.

Did Indy and Chicago need a Larry Johnson to get to the superbowl.......no.

If you think the chiefs have a SB shotin the next 2 years then we keep LJ. Otherwise he's merely Carl's seat filler.

What are you talking about?

Of course, if you let him explore the OPEN market, he's gonna get BIG money.

This is about DRAFT PICKS and always has been.
IF a team thinks enough about Larry Johnson to give him big money then they will trade draft picks for him now to gain leverage to pay him less.


the chiefs have been using your attitude about players for years ... and it's gotten us nothing.


maybe we should try this ........ if the guy isn't worth much in trade then we shouldn't pay him a big load of cash.
