Larry speaks out

 Larry Johnson (courtesy ESPN fantasy) - "I've got to sit back and figure that the writing is on the wall, that this season or next season could be my last season as a Chief," Johnson said. He is most upset with being replaced by Jamaal Charles or Kolby Smith on passing downs and when the Chiefs get near the goal line. "I'm not dumb," Johnson said. "I'm trying to help win games, and this is the second time where I'm not in there when it's time to win a game." He was pulled on the Chiefs' lone touchdown drive once Kansas City got near the end zone. "I need 20 or 30 carries," he said. "You're not getting any momentum when you're coming in and you're coming out, coming in and coming out."



 I kind of see his point, but at the same time if you're an NFL back and you ARE making positive plays, then chances are you're going to stay in the game until
A. You're tired B. You're not making consecutive positive yardage. C. You're not part of the play calling package
Usually, if a back is doing what he is paid to do, then he has a lot better chance of staying in the game longer. When a back is making 1,2, or 0 yard plays... sooner rather than later he will get pulled out. 
I saw this when I was checking my fantasy points, and I found it quite alarming to hear the full quote.
