Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

i was at the chiefs game last season. to say that L.J was dis- interested would be putting it mildly. don't like adding bad seeds to the redskins

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Dude grew a 'Skins fan. Let's hope that means motivation to put an all-out effort on the field.
He's a pretty good receiver out of the backfield too.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Time will tell, what are his Specs. I guess we need a bruiser. CP, LJ & AA not bad i guess would of liked FWP better.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

5OO Yds at best next season. Good quality backup but way past his prime. I'd rather have had LT but I guess he wanted more $

lol. CP won't go over 800 and LJ will have to take the job because CP gets shelved on IR.

lolLT. Dude's a "dead" RB if there is one. LJ has 5000 less carries. It's just that he's a bit of violent knucklehead...which leads to suspensions.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

hooray for the FO. Another diva, declining, problem child RB with off the field issues. But hey, he was a redskin fan, so all will be fine.

We already had a back that couldnt run outside the tackles anymore. We didnt need one more. I might have to change my sig. Thats what bothers me.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

This is the first signing I'm really not OK with... and about 99% of my feelings are about how he is off the field...

Anyone who has been arrested for hitting women before shouldn't even be in the league and quite honestly, I'm embarrassed that I'll end up cheering for that guy next season. I really hope London Fletcher knocks this piece of trash through a wall during training camp. I'll deal with Clinton Portis' pre-madona BS all day long... but when it comes to off the field incidnets like this, it really strikes a nerve with me.

If we had some good receivers prior to the 2008 draft, we may have been able to take Felix Jones.

Portis would have cried though.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Worthless, worthless, signing. We could get a young hungry player rather than this past-prime dude. I really hope i eat my words but there is no way in heck i would have signed this guy. I just dont see the upside.

SOMEONE PLEASE CLARIFY IT FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, the fact he really wanted to play here matters, being a lifelong Redskin fan may give him extra incentive. Should work well for the short term providing he and Portis can remain healthy. We still could look to get younger in the draft.

Yeah I hear you. I mean we of course don't know who else is doing what off the field that we just don't hear about. So for all we know we're already cheering for these type of people.

Anyhow, as we've talked about before Shanahan is well known for making at least a couple of "I can't believe he just did that moves" seemingly every year. Whether it's Maurice Clarett...or Larry Johnson

I would have rather had LT because he's a leader and puts Football first. Don't start jocking LJ just because he's a skin now. We were all dogging him when he threw his Bitch fit the last 2 yrs in KC. And as far as Cp goes he's a way better back than LJ, Portis actually blocks and can Pass Catch aswell.

Oh absolutely...but if I don't know about it.. it doesn't take the fun out of it. Kinda of what I don't know, wont hurt me type of thing... Its really the thing with women that bothers me, so that type of "offense" I just look at differently than other things.
