Posnanski - Let's restore LJ's fire

Let’s restore LJ’s fire
JOE POSNANSKI
The Kansas City Star

Sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own hands. That’s why we here at The Second Guess have decided to dedicate ourselves to making Larry Johnson mad.

Hey, we have to do something. As brilliant Second Guess reader Chris Carey points out, Kansas City is standing all alone in loserdom these days. With the Detroit Tigers reaching the World Series, that means every team in the American League Central has been in the World Series since 1991 — except the Kansas City Royals. They’ve all made the playoffs this decade — except the Kansas City Royals. Every team in the AFC West has reached the Super Bowl since 1994 — except the Kansas City Chiefs.

The time has come to make a sacrifice.

And if it means Larry Johnson is angry at us, so be it.

Yes, we are determined to really anger Larry Johnson. Remember how well he ran the ball when he was an angry young man? He blasted into holes like a man chasing a pickpocket. He hit defenders as if they had insulted his family. People were talking about 2,000 yards rushing. He was the first pick in just about every fantasy football draft. He was so close to Jim Brown that you expected to see him in “The Dirty Dozen” remake.

Jim Brown stayed angry. Jim Brown is still angry. Meanwhile, Larry Johnson seems to have gone Olivia Newton-John mellow on us. What happened? True, the Chiefs’ offensive line is not dynamiting those canyons for him to run through. True, Willie Roaf and Tony Richardson are gone.

But the last two weeks, Johnson has run the ball 31 times for 62 yards, and that’s pitiful. That’s more than just a struggling offensive line. Walter Payton had lousy offensive lines. So did Barry Sanders. Priest Holmes led the league in rushing when Marcus Spears was the Chiefs’ right tackle.

This offensive line didn’t suddenly become that bad. Johnson is running tentatively now. He looks unsure. He refuses to cut into the heart of a defense. He’s frustrated. And he is just not running the same.

So maybe reading this will make him angry. We’ll be happy to take his ire if he will run again with the aggression and fierceness he showed last year. And if this doesn’t work, well, we won’t stop our quest to bring back Larry’s rage. Maybe we’ll drive really slowly in front of him in the left lane on the highway. That always gets us angry.

This was the debut of his little "mid-week" column, I think. He filled the rest of it with interesting little snippets. I liked it.

How about giving him so blocking? What a concept, huh? How about completing a few passes down field, to open up the running game? Heh, what an idea. Putting all this on LJ is assinine.

I for one dont put this all on LJ at all, but i do think he's running way to tentatively this year. It seems like he's lookin' for big holes that arent there, i think he needs to use his size a lil' better to make his own hole. Better 3 yards and a cloud o' dust than a stuff at the LOS.

Yes, it did.

Losing Roaf was humongous, and losing Welbourne hurt. Shields is one step closer to retirement, and Wiegs is at the age he may be reaching the tipping point.

I agree, LJ hasn't shown the same fire, but it's probably due in part to the fact that he's bummed out by not seeing the same holes the last two years.

Or because he knows he has a bad case of the Fumbleitus.

I think Pos is wrong. The line fell off, we lost T-Rich, and Green's injury was the final straw. There's just too many guys in the box.
