Washed up" running backs don’t average 4.5 yards per carry behind Rudy "M.D." Niswanger, Adrian "Thanks, Herm!" Jones and Damion "Thanks, Carl!" McIntosh. It’s simply not logical, at any level, and we really don’t even need to get into the absurd way LJ was under-used in the "Pistol" offense. If the Chargers can commit to LaDainian "3.8 yards per carry" Tomlinson after 2,657 career carries, then it makes complete sense for the Chiefs to at least keep featuring Johnson after 1,243 carries.

I know were all sick of talking about L.J.

I just cant see how people really do think he has "so much milage" when he really doenst besides two 300+ carry seasons then having only played 20 games over the last two seasons i would say his body is well rested and should be ready for a another great season. That is if he stays with K.C.

With Albert, Waters, Goff at C or RG and maybe one of our yonger RT's can break the starting line-up, I can see the L.J. of old returning.

I  have to disagree with people who say L.J. would be a non-factor in Haleys offense. Edge Rushed for 1200+ yards in 06 and 07.  Edge missed 3 games and honestly does have "a lot of mileage". The guy was 32 last season.

Regardless of his recent stats L.J. demands respect from D's and gets it with 8 in the box. With L.J. on the field it will open up that pass happy offense for Haley. Without L.J. I dont see anyone else strikning fear in opposing D's.
