Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

On an additional note, I love how noone questions these moves, or lack thereof. I do hope people recall that Shanahan was borderline as a coach his last two seasons in Denver, and one might say the last 3 seasons. Sub 500 record the last 36 games. If he didnt inherit our defense, Id really be concerned this year as well. Anyone realize that he was ranked 30th and 28th in 2008 and 2007 in defensive pts allowed, respectively? And this team does not have the offense to offset that type of point differential, and what is being done to avoid that?? Larry Johnson and a career backup guard that wouldnt even get a starting spot on 90% of teams? Come on now, this has to make some fans in Redskin Nation a little uneasy.

SOMEONE PLEASE CLARIFY IT FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would you rather have Betts or Johnson as your backup? Both are the same age, the edge goes to Johnson for what he has achieved in the past and the fact that he's coming home to play for his childhood beloved team.

Now all we have to do is draft Blount and we will have three tools in the shed!

Now, with the above being said, I am still happy he is here with us, and have nothing but adoration for the guy.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I like the pick up of Larry Johnson. I'm sure Clinton will be back down to 205 again and Larry will be the speedy 230 pound back we haven't had in a while.

It would have been better if you had mentioned Ron Dayne.

LT makes me sad because he's so out of touch with what his role should be now in the NFL. Maybe if he signs with the Vikings it'll show that he's come to grips with the fact that he's no longer the dominant player he once was but that remains to be seen. All I keep hearing about is how LT wants to be a #1 back.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

"hometown team" lmao man Johnson could care less that he's a redskin. He knows this team offered him the most and that's y he chose us. This dude is a hood who beats more women than d lineman. Yea it's a buisness and it's all about winning but I won't root for the guy next yr. Just as bad as Big Ben is with women lol

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

The reactions to this pick up have been all over the place.
It is still so early in the offseason. There is a good chance Larry Johnson will not even make our final roster. This draft is deep in the RB position. Even if we draft only one RB, there will be some undrafted rookies that will get signed. Plus there is the final camp cuts from other teams that always has a talented RB or two.

Was that an "is" or a "was"? BTW, Betts was always the better pass catcher on the team.

Thing is about LT, is that there's no hope for him now. 3.3 avg on a team with an excellent passing attack. Not good. If we need a motivator, he should be hired as a coach and not waste a roster spot.
