Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I would have preferred W. Parker but I guess LJ will do.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I like the move, mostly because I like the signing of players whose downside is right out there in the open for all to see. There's no hidden skeletons or performance failures in his closet. He's a character concern with a majorly declining skill set.

If the Redskins can make that work in the scheme, there's nothing but upside here.

Length of contract is a bit concerning (3 years), but that's the only part I dislike. For the reasons above, he's a much stronger choice than Tomlinson, Thomas Jones, Parker, Chester Taylor et al.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Very mixed feelings about this, but when he's good (on the field) he's really good.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

So two former Chiefs signed.

When I think building a winner...I think 2009 Kansas City Chiefs roster

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I can't think of a troubled player that still had issue by the time they reached their third team.

It's about winning games in Washington. They've been better at it than us.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I like it for the short term. When Larry is on..he is really on. I think he'll fit in nicely giving Portis less carries and hopefully if we make the playoffs they will both be fresh and healthy. And with Portis he never really seems to play all 16 games anyway. He was a Redskin fan growing up. he really wanted to sign here and respects Shanny, so I think he'll work out just fine.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

As long as he stays out of trouble and produces on the field, I'm ok with it. I've always been a fan of LJ....

Wow. Not sure how I fell about this.
One good side, we finally have a big back. How long has it been since we have had one? Gerald Riggs?

We'll, there was that three month period when everyone thought Ladell Betts was a big back. Really not sure why that happened though.

And there was TJ Duckett. Not that anyone deserves to be reminded of that.
