LJ Takes Thinly Veiled Shot At Chiefs Coach Todd Haley

New, comments

Have fun with this signing, Mike Shanahan.

Former Chiefs RB Larry Johnson spoke with the Washington media this afternoon and of course couldn't go through the whole thing without getting a shot in at the Chiefs and coach Todd Haley.

Here's the question from the reporter:

Did some of what happened in Kansas City force some soul searching on your end to see where you had to go from there?

I just had to be with a coach who cares and knows what has to be done to put our team in the best situation to win. Being in that situation wasn't the best for my career or the organization. Going to the Bengals made it comfortable for me to find my transition and what I was going to do next.

Coach Shanahan talked to me on my visit here and this just seemed like a better fit for a coach that's actually been there.

Sigh...

Please tell me what coach would give a player this many carries in the first seven games -- 11, 24, 19, 18, 21, 23, 16 -- when said player is averaging less than three yards per carry.
