The whole idea of tanking is stupid. Play to win every game.
Let's give CJ the chance he deserves 2 short years ago he was running as comeback player of the year. Injuries has killed him. I'm more than happy he's back. I've got a good feeling he's ready
No such thing as 2 short years for a running back in his 30's.
that said, I hope he's got more burst left than I think he does.
Who will start Kerwynn or Chris Johnson
No one knows yet. I believe CJ will be starting sooner than later.
Was hoping for a bold move to excite the fan base like Adrian Peterson from the Saints. A.P. doesn't appear very happy with his "new" role in New Orleans.
Mark in SC
Based on what? The guy was on the street and KW and Ellington made the team? His play in ore season stunk and he clearly lacked any type of explosiveness...
Me thinks all you guys chiming this stance are throwing **** at the wall and hoping it sticks.... And I believe you guys are doing it based on Chris Johnson's name and history... time to realize the guy is old and is not the same player... About the only thing heis still really good at is pass protection...
Is just what I believe. I am no expert.
Sad part is he is better and more experienced than any of our other RB's. You can't rush the ball consistently with two 5-8/5-9 guys that weigh 190ish pounds. CJ2k is old but he knows the offense and is still more talented than KW or AE at 31 years old.
truth...and the bullet is still there.
Was more talented would be more accurate... Nothing we have seen has shown that the CJ you see today is more talented..
Shane is not a fan of the guy. So, keep that in mind.
But seriously, if the Cardinals cut Chris Johnson at the beginning of the year, then I have no idea why they would now bring him and another running back in as well. But, then again, there have been more than a few questionable moves these last two years when it comes to player/personnel moves and the Cardinals.
Ed Stinson, Drew Butler, Scooby Wright, just to name a few.
I am a fan of Johnson, but I do agree with Shane, that until Chris Johnson shows he can still do what we have seen in the past, he is just 2 years older, and look no further than the other aging players on this team, to see how that normally goes.
In my opinion, I think Chris Johnson will have Marcell Ship type effectiveness this year. Not really sure that is going to have much of an effect, positive or negative on the team.
I'm holding out hope that his break last year at least means he has a little more tread on the tires. I don't know though, he's pretty long in the tooth for an RB.
I actually do like Chris Johnson I just think hes done....clearly seen him underperform Against 2nd and 3rd rate talent in the preseason showed all I really needed to see. Can't for the life of me figure out what everyone else is expecting and what they are basing it off of ??
I know just having some fun, and to be clear for all those reading, you have never said anything close to that you are not a fan of the guy.
He is a 30 year old vet, and I agree, it would be wise for people to keep that in mind with their expectations. There is not an elite RB on this roster right now, and it will have to get done via a committee of backs. Johnson is here more for his pass blocking than anything since both Williams and Ellington struggle there.
