Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I just don't get the confusion nor the discontent with Larry Johnson's contract and better yet, his age.

By reading some of the posts you would think Larry Johnson is some 50 year old, escape convict returning to the NFL. Johnson is a CLEAR upgrade over Betts/Cartwright.

...that's definitely true and he could even be an upgrade over Portis as the season unfolds.

We're not going into the season with just two backs. I think complaints will disappear when we have a new young back after the draft. People are complaining about an unfinished picture. Jahvid Best, Portis, and LJ would make a not too bad backfield.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I like Portis and Johnson 1-2 in either order.I also like Aldridge in the mix. I'd like to see the Skins pick up Ryan Torian if he is available as a fourth back if only just as camp fodder. Injury prone but drafted by Shanny I think as a prototypical zone blocking runningback. He played well in the one game he played in. Unproven either way but worth taking a chance on. Ironically enuff he had no injury history in college.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I'm a bit surprised they haven't signed Torain yet. I fully expect him to be a participant in training camp. That's not based on any knowledge, just speculation

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Unlike CP, LJ can make a tackle without getting hurt:

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

think this matters?

Redskins running back Larry Johnson was back in court in Kansas City Friday, and the presiding judge criticized Johnson for failing to comply with the terms of his probation and refusing to do the kind of community service the judge expected.

When Johnson was sentenced to 40 hours of court-ordered community service, that service was supposed to involve coaching children at the Kansas City Police Athletic League. But Johnson refused to play sports with the children and said he wanted to start an art program. For some reason he was credited with nine hours of community service, even though the art program was canceled when it didn't draw enough students.

no. he just needs to spend about a week doing his service to comply.

Just confirms what a total jerk he is.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

It is not a secret that LJ = Douchebag. It confirms what we've known for a while, he's a primadonna with a "me" complex and wants the world to revolve around him. Hopefully the judge kicks him in ass Lindsay Lohan style.

I hope Portis has a huge year and this POS doesn't see the field other than in junk time.

Why Larry Johnson Signs Every Autograph

Yeah LJ is such a DB . He probably had his reasons and although I cannot imagine what they were doesn't mean that he is a complete ass.
