Q&A with Larry Johnson - "I donít get hit, I give hits."

Q: Did you have the Herm Edwards Halloween costume planned out in advance?

JOHNSON: ďIt was just a spur of the moment thing. I was just hanging out in the Public Relations Department and I just thought the idea would be cool to dress up as Herm and kind of mimic him. That would be my little fun for the year.Ē

Q: What did Herm say about it?

JOHNSON: ďWhen he came down he just wanted to look at me and see what I looked like and then he said, Ďgo on in there, youíve got me down pat. Go in there and see what you can do.í Then he just sat in the back of the room and laughed.Ē

Q: Can you imitate Joe Paterno also?

JOHNSON: ďI could do Joe, but that would be hard. I can definitely do Herm easily, though. Heís easy to do.Ē

Q: How does your body feel after getting 39 carries last Sunday?

JOHNSON: ďMy body feels fine. I donít get hit, I give hits.
Thatís the difference that people donít understand. This is what we do. This is what Big Ten backs and Penn State backs do. We are not quick and slashing-type guys that run out of bounds. Thatís not how my body was conditioned. My body was conditioned to take blows. When people ask, ĎAre you sore?í Iím not really sore. I practiced today and I had fun jumping around. My body wasnít aching and I had fun.Ē

Q: Are you having input on how is the offense growing?

JOHNSON: ďIím having a little bit more input on what we do as far as the running plays and things I like and things I donít like. Iím having more input now than Iíve have since Iíve been here, talking it over with the offensive lineman and finding out what they like and what they donít like. I think thatís whatís making this thing work.Ē

Q: Has there been a transition for you with two new tackles?

JOHNSON: ďTheir job is to block and block their man. All I have to do is run and anticipate where the hole is going to be and if itís not there then I have to have my second option trying to find out where the hole is going to be after the point of impact. Iím not going to gauge what one new guy does or what another new guy does. We all block the same scheme and weíre all running the same scheme. Thatís how we get things done.Ē

Q: What do you think of the Rams defense?

JOHNSON: ďThose guys run to the ball. They play well together and they remind me of the defense that weíve played every year in the preseason. Weíve seen them before. Theyíre going to be the same team at home that they were out in San Diego. I anticipate a whole different mindset as far as their defense playing at home.Ē

Q: Has the transition to Herm Edwards been easier than some transitions of the past?

JOHNSON: ďPeople just had to get used to what Iím about and what Iím trying to do as far as my career goes. If theyíre not on the same page as me then I canít be on the same page with them. Thatís how that transition goes. Herm came in and was on the same page as me and is trying to get done the same things that Iím trying to get done. Thatís how everything gelled together and worked. Thatís how we can have little skits where Iím making fun of him or heís making fun of me because weíre on the same page.Ē

Q: What do think of Damon Huardís play thus far?

JOHNSON: ďHeís done an awesome job. Heís hitting the guys that need to be getting the ball. Heís putting the ball in the hands of the playmakers. Heís going through his reads and heís doing things a lot better than he did at the end of the Cincinnati game and the Denver game. Heís gotten 100 times better as each game goes on because heís getting more comfortable.Ē

Q: Can you tell us about the upholstery in your truck?

JOHNSON: ďI just have jerseys of different guys who are in the Hall of Fame or are about to be in the Hall of Fame stitched into the seats of my truck. Iíve got Walter Payton, Lenny Moore, D.J. Dozier, Ernie Ladd, Ed Sprinkle, Tony Dorsett, Eric Dickerson, Jim BrownÖ the list goes on and on.Ē

Q: Were all of those guys your childhood heroes?

JOHNSON: ďThey couldnít be my childhood heroes because I wasnít around when those guys were done playing. Basically, NFL Films made it possible for me to learn more about NFL history than I have in other aspect of the sport. There was so much that NFL Films did, like Steve Sabol putting those tapes out there. Without those tapes I donít think I would have known Tony Dorsett or Dickie Post or anybody who played before me. I think a lot of players need to go back and take a look at that history.Ē

Q: Do you have a whole library of NFL Films highlight tapes?

JOHNSON: ďI donít have a whole library, but I have the things that I want to see and I watch them periodically. I canít really watch a tape on defensive lineman or defensive backs because thatís not my position. I watch some of the best runners and stuff like that.Ē

Q: Who were the guys you liked watching when you were younger?

JOHNSON: ďIt was more Walter Payton and Jim Brown when I used to watch tape. Other than that I hadnít really watched anybody else as far as football because I really didnít watch football games since I was playing all the time. When my dad sat me down to watch tape it was of those two guys.Ē

Regardless of who is doing the actual hitting, it's still a physical sport that takes a toll on the body.

Except for our defense from 2002 through 2004, of course.

Yeah.
Those guys tried, and accomplished, to take hitting out of the equation.

at the sametime some guys are just built to take this too. Earl Campbell was the same way, but unlike Campbell Larry will have Trent Green coming back soon which will cut his carries to 20-25 again. Earl didn't have a great QB around him, LJ does and that's his saving grace.Now if the damn O-Tackles learn how to ****IN block in general we'll be Okay.

Earl Campbell played for, what, 8, 9 years?

And his last 2 or 3 years, he was injured, and not nearly as productive.
