    YES, Slaton's fumbling + mediocre alternatives = we need any RB on the free market that can help!!

    If the line can't make consistant holes for the RB, Larry Johnson isn't going to be a lot of help. I guess we could sign him for a decoy, like Reggie Bust. LOL

    I say give him a shot to see if it is Steve or the OL with the problems.

    For an experiment like this, LJ wouldn't be a good constant to test, considering the previous experiment of LJ with godly KC oline vs. LJ without godly KC oline

    The wheels have come off Johnson. He has lost his burst, and looks really slow in the open field, while not bringing the kind of power running he did in years past. He makes Ron Dayne look explosive.

    Brown looks like Adrian Peterson compared to Johnson. Faster, better change of direction, and more power.

    I think Brown stinks if that helps you get a picture of what I think of Johnson. :choke:

    He has a horrible attitude.
    He called his own fans/followers fags and bragged about how much money he makes.
    He's a bad citizen - including beating women.
    He's YPC average is atrocious.
    His burst is completely gone.
    He does not hit the hole with authority anymore.
    KC has run-blocking problems... why would he be better with us?

    LJ is about LJ. He's not a team guy. He's a piece of crap. I can't believe anyone would want him - based BOTH on his off the field behavior, and on his horrible, horrible play. He's way past his prime. He cannot help this team... or at the very least - he's in NO way a significant upgrade over anything we have now.

    Larry Johnson can go eff himself.

    Or give Arian Foster a chance. He can't be worse than anything we've seen can he?

    the ONLY thing he has over slaton right now is that he's not fumbling. a 29 year old cancer averaging less than 3ypc. i dont see the attraction. i'd rather see brown and/or moats get more carries.

    Larry Johnson is not the LJ of 4-5 years ago, he's alot slower and has lost his quickness, also his attitude sucks. LJ has been a cancer to the Chiefs since they signed him to that huge contract a couple years ago. I bet the Chiefs wish they had let him walk when he was holding out for a better contract several years ago. Good RB's can be had pretty easily and we don't need the baggage he'd bring with him. We've already got Dunta.
