A comparison of Priest "TD" Holmes vs. Larry "diapers" Johnson......

Priest Holmes
8 games started --
Rushing - 196 attempts, 892 yds, 4.6 avg, 14 TD
Receiving - 19 rec, 187 yds, 9.8 avg, 1 TD


Larry Johnson
3 games started --
Rushing - 120 attepts, 581 yds, 4.8 avg, 9 TD
Receiving - 22 rec, 278 yds, 12.6 avg, 2 TD

Priest played 7 1/2 games. Larry Johnson started 3 games and appeared in 7 others. It's hard to compare the two RBs by games played, therefore the comparison needs to be done by rushing attempts and receptions or one could just compare them by "touches".

Here we go. --------->

Rushing --
Let's give LJ 196 rushes like Priest had. He would have 949 yds and 14.7 TD. Wow! If we assume that is the equivelent of 8 games, then LJ would have had, over a 16 game schedule, 29 rushing TDs and 1898 yds rushing!!! Of course, one could argue that LJ wouldn't be able to keep up a 4.8 yd average over the course of a 16 game season. One could argue that it's easier to put up big numbers in 3 or 4 games, then over a prolonged 16 game season. That's a valid argument. But one must admit that those are gaudy numbers!!

Recieving--
It's harder to compare the two RBs when it comes to receptions. Priest had 19 in 8 games, while LJ had 22 in 3+ games. I'm going to compare their receptions in ratio to their rushes. (If some mathmetician can do a better comparison, please be my guest. I was terrible at math in H.S.) For every reception, Priest had 10.3 rushes. For every reception, LJ had 5.45 rushes. Using these ratios, Priest would have had 38 receptions and 392 rushes in 16 games. Now we'll compare LJ to Priest. If LJ had 396 rushes, like Priest, he would have had 71 receptions in 16 games. (Is my math correct?) And, if LJ had 71 receptions and maintained the same production level, he would have had 895 yds and 6 TDs!!!! I know that's some contorted and twisted math, but that's the best way I can figure it with my 8th grade education. (just kidding)

Touches--
Let's look at the two by "touches". This will be alot easier. Priest touched the ball 215 times for 1079 yards, 15 TDs and a 5.0 yd average. If LJ got 392 rushes like Priest and 71 receptions as we previously projected, he would have 463 touches for 2793 yds, 35 TDs and a 6.0 average!!! That's just nuts.

-- OK. I acknowledge that my math is probably flawed. Maybe there is a better way to compare the two. Also, I understand that these are just projections and no one can see the future. But, I am surprised at the numbers that LJ put up in just a few games. I didn't like the LJ draft pick. I didn't like LJ's attitude last year. I didn't like his production or the way he looked on the field last year. I still don't like his "smart mouth" when speaking to the media. But it's undeniable that LJ has put up some big numbers in a short period of time.

These numbers make LJ look like a Jamal Lewis type of runner that has good hands and can actually catch passes out of the backfield (Jamal Lewis doesn't). It's rare that you find a runner that is that good and can also catch passes.

It's dangerous to trick up numbers. Just stick with what you know.... LJ has the potential to be every bit the badass that Holmes has been in KC.

KC should trade Holmes.

I agree. Holmes rocks, but he's only got 1-2 years left in him. Plus he seems to get hurt an awful lot lately. Keeping him to split carries with LJ would be a great idea, but he's getting paid too much to split carries with anyone.

We could trade one of our RBs for a CB like Denver did because we have a viable alternative at the running back position. Denver traded for an overrated CB with no viable RBs in their stable. However, I don't think they'll trade Holmes because he doesn't have much trade value. I don't think we'll trade LJ because he's out future at RB.

KC should keep both Priest and LJ for as long as they play.

True. In '05 LJ can take the pressure off of Priest. Maybe he'll last 16 games. I'd like to see LJ and Priest in the backfield together once in a while.

Would anyone like to redo my math? Maybe there is a better / easier way to compare Priest vs. LJ.

I find it interesting that Johnson's numbers look almost IDENTICAL to Priest's from the last couple of years when you extrapolate them out over a 16-game season.

Maybe it IS the line.

Personally this franchise spent so many years looking for a decent running back that I do not see any reason to compare them. I think we should hold on to them as long as we can and tell anyone that wants one of them to go ---- them self!

Yup, or Wish Bone or I Bone or any other variation of the Triple Option Offense that doesn’t work in the NCAA any more.
