Larry Johnson is the real problem with this offense

Okay. The game against the Cowboys proved my theory once and for all. Larry Johnson is arrogant, slow, one dimensional, and plays with no heart. Nearly every single run he fell down at the line of scrimmage, or gained a max of 3 yards. There were a few outside runs that he got more. But with a guy like Charles sitting on our bench, coming in and making a 9 yard gain (with the same offensive line LJ was using) is incredible. We need to start Charles. Why is LJ the only running back that hasn't been inactive this year? He is the problem. He's unreliable in every aspect of the game, and it hurts us to have him. The littlest touch will bring him down. He can't be thrown to, he can't run through people anymore, he walks around calmly with a "I want my paycheck" swagger. Bring Charles in, and let him play. The kid will make plays.

 

I'm done with LJ. He costs us too much. I'm not saying we lost today because of him, but there were significant plays in this game that Johnson was involved in that went nowhere, and throwing Charles in the same situation would've made a better outcome. I don't care what anyone says about the offensive line. It sucks. We know. But when you have Cassel sitting back there with a big X on his back taking shots from defenders (he was hit or sacked 26/34 times he dropped back to pass) and still getting up, I believe he deserves more than pitiful Larry Johnson out there helping him.
