Another thing people don't realize is that he was actually a five star recruit in 2006 coming out of high school. So just in case anyone cares that what I mean when I say he has all the physical tools to be successful. The fact that he played high school football in Virginia was probably among the main reasons he was on our radar after the draft, since I imagine the scouts that worked on the 2010 draft had seen him back in 2006.

HIGH SCHOOL
One of the top running back prospects in the country ... Arguably, the top prep school prospect for the Class of 2006 ... Completed his eligibility at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. ... Became the first running back in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards ... Finished the season with 160 carries for 1,325 yards and 12 touchdowns ... Rushed for more than 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns in his junior season at Northside High School in Lafayette ... Named the offensive MVP of Class 4A in Louisiana in 2004 .. Ranked as the nation's No. 3 running back prospect by Scout.com ... Coached at Hargrave by Robert Prunty.
Not to different from the new guy we just signed who played his football at Morgan State.

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

alot changes from High School to the NFl.....not sure if that matters at all........

Its nice to know SOMEONE thought he was good in 2006 though, rather have them thinking that than to say he was shit in HS I guess?

Agreed... I watched this guy in the preseason and I truly believe he'd excel in this zone blocking system. Plus he can catch out the backfield. He was on the final four drives against Houston (due to Portis' injury), but I think it's telling that the coaches trust him.

Can't be going backwards when the team is trying to move forward.
He was clearly joking lol

Trust the FO but would of been nice if they would have kept Aldridge (not sure if I'm spelling it right).

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

It had to be done. They should have promoted Torain instead of signing Simpson.

I'm not buying it. Running backs get paid to find holes and run through them. He might have still have something left in the tank, but definitely not as a featured back.

The only thing in LJ tank is fumes....this guy is a used up has been. Like the rest of our running game.

Until some new young blood with a high gear is found and installed, something that currently isn't on this roster. We will have problems running the ball against solid defenses.

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

When I initially saw this, I was hoping it was in advance of a fat al for marshawn trade... now I see we got a buffalo running back, but not the one i wanted.

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

Chad Simpson?....LJ was a joke. Id say run K Williams much more and see what he has. I thought with CP and being in Shanny offense previously, he would adapt quickly and we'd be seeing production? Sorry, but that a been a fail so far. Portis to me has been a disappointment especially after how things were going to be "different now"...go ahead and put down RB on the "wish list" for the offseason

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

I kinda felt this coming. LJ was slow and not a good fit for the zone scheme. I think this means it's time for Williams to step up.

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

I was really hoping the Burgandy and Gold would've cut Reed (The Witness) Doughty.

Re: Larry Johnson Cut

The LJ signing and release, and the lack of RB talent on the roster, make me nervous. What's the plan again?
