L.J. Ready For Ravens … Friday Cup O’Chiefs

Larry Johnson is healthy. Larry Johnson is comfortable. Larry Johnson is ready to go.

“You get to a certain age, a certain spot in your life where you just feel comfortable,” Johnson said on Thursday after the Chiefs practice session. “I think that’s what it is, being able to be comfortable and focus on what I have to do Sunday.”

If Johnson can do this Sunday what he did the last time he played against the Baltimore Ravens defense, it would not guarantee a Chiefs victory. But the chances of winning would certainly be enhanced, no matter whether Matt Cassel starts at quarterback or not.

Back on December 10, 2006, Johnson carried the ball 23 times for 120 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium. It was one of 11 games where he gained 100 yards or more that season.

It was however, the last time the Baltimore defense gave up a 100-yard rusher. That’s a streak of 35 regular season games since the Ravens allowed any back over 100 yards. It’s actually a streak of 39 games if the post-season is included.

How dominate has the run defense been for the Ravens? In those 35 regular season games, the opponent’s leading rusher topped 50 yards only 14 times and had more than 90 yards only three times.

What Johnson was able to get done that cold day at Arrowhead three years ago was impressive. He gouged the Ravens for a 47-yard run and averaged 5.2 yards per carry for the game. Those are numbers that backs simply don’t do against the Baltimore defense.

“It was kind of a cat and mouse game with Ray Lewis because of some of our plays,” said Johnson. “Usually you have to stay in there and run hard and keep sticking it in there. I didn’t think it was pretty. I only had one long run and I was running into Ray Lewis for three yards, four yards, five yards.

“Then by the end of the game it magically came out to 100 and some yards. It’s just being tough and staying in there.

“They’re very tough to run on. It’s no cakewalk. They try to get you for every inch and every yard you ever gain. You’re going to get gang-tackled. It’s a fun game, especially for a person who likes that aspect of the game, of being able to run the ball downhill and get hit by two or three guys. That’s usually what football is all about. ”

A lot has changed around the Chiefs offense since that game three years ago. Upfront, Will Shields and Casey Wiegmann are gone. So are John Welbourn and Tony Gonzalez. Mike Solari is gone as offensive coordinator as is head coach Herm Edwards. Can the Chiefs still run the football with their current offensive line and Todd Haley as head coach/offensive coordinator?

“Coaches come and go, but there’s really only one thing that stays in Kansas City and that’s our ability to run the football and our ability to put points on the board,” said Johnson. “I’m confident in that aspect of what we are doing.

“Coaches can’t play, the owners won’t play for us, the GM won’t play for us, we have to go out there and play. All these guys that came in here, they played last year and the year before for other teams. It’s the same thing – you get up, you put your pants on and you go to work. As long as we figure out how to do that all together, I think we’ll be fine regardless of who the coach is, who calls the plays, because at the end of the day, we’re the ones that really have to execute.”

Is Johnson ready to be the kind of back that carries the ball an NFL record 416 times like he did in 2006?

“If I can survive through a Todd Haley training camp, I figure I can survive the season,” said Johnson. “We definitely worked hard enough and trained hard enough for me to just keep it going. We really had a rough training camp; we were in pads every single day it felt like. To go through that and not come out with a scratch, it feels good to go into a season because that’s when you have your most fun, when you go game-in and game-out, just having fun and doing the things you are capable of doing.”

Here’s the 35-game streak for the Ravens, with the leading rusher for the opponents in each of these regular season games.

FROM THE PAGES OF CHIEFS HISTORY
On September 11, 1971, the Chiefs lost a pre-season game to the Dallas Cowboys 24-17 at Texas Stadium. QB Len Dawson threw a pair of TD passes, 48 yards to WR Elmo Wright and 55 yards to WR Otis Taylor. K Jan Stenerud kicked a 24-yard FG. The Chiefs ran for 243 yards on 41 carries, with RB Robert Holmes leading the way with 10 carries for 73 yards. Taylor had three catches for 103 yards. Dallas RB Calvin Hill runs 17 times for 114 yards and 2 TDs. The Chiefs defense had interceptions from LB Bobby Bell and CB Jim Marsalis, but Dallas’ defense contributed eight sacks, including two from DT Bob Lilly.

On September 11, 1966, the Chiefs won the season opener against the Buffalo Bills 42-20 at War Memorial Stadium. The fast starting Chiefs got 21 points in the first quarter against the Bills as RB Bert Coan had a pair of TDs. The first was a 12-yard pass from QB Len Dawson, followed by a four-yard run. WR Otis Taylor had a 14-yard TD catch from Dawson. Later RB Curtis McClinton scored on a 17-yard pass from QB Pete Beathard and pounded it in from one-yard on a run. RB Mike Garrett had a 79-yard punt return TD.

On September 11, 1988, the Chiefs lost to the Seattle Seahawks 31-10 at the Kingdome. A big 28-point second quarter was all the Seahawks needed for the victory. RB Kurt Warner scored on two TD runs, QB Dave Krieg connected with WR Brian Blades for a 17-yard score and DE Jacob Green recovered a fumble in the end zone for a score. The Chiefs got only a 27-yard FG by K Nick Lowery and a 15-yard TD pass from QB Steve DeBerg to WR Stephone Paige. DeBerg threw three interceptions. The Chiefs had just 50 yards rushing. Paige caught nine passes for 99 yards.

On September 11, 1994, the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 24-17 at Arrowhead Stadium in front of 79,907 fans. In one of the most ballyhooed games of the NFL decade, Joe Montana and Steve Young met head-to-head and the Chiefs got the victory. Montana threw a pair of TD passes, one to OT eligible Joe Valerio and an eight-yard score to TE Keith Cash. RB Marcus Allen had a four-yard TD run and LB Derrick Thomas sacked Young in the end zone for a safety. Montana was 19 of 31 for 203 yards. Young finished the game 24 of 34 for 288 yards, but he threw a pair of interceptions, grabbed by S Charles Mincy and S William White. Thomas had three sacks and S Mark Collins had one.

SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY …

Born on September 11, 1964 in Memphis was QB Doug Hudson. He was selected in the seventh round of the 1987 NFL Draft out of Nicholls State. Hudson played and started just one game, one of the replacement games during the 1987 NFL players strike. He attempted one pass and was sacked once. It was his only appearance in the NFL.

Born on September 11, 1964 in Elizabeth, New Jersey was RB Troy Stradford. He joined the Chiefs for the 1991 season, after playing four seasons with the Miami Dolphins. Stradford appeared in 10 games and he carried the ball one time for seven yards and caught nine passes for 91 yards. He returned 22 punts for 150 yards and 14 kickoffs for 292 yards. Stradford finished his career in 1992 with Detroit and the Los Angeles Rams.

    I don’t know…..back when LJ ran for over 100 against these guys he was also doing it to other teams. Now he doesn’t do it to any teams….not since we lost our superior line.

    Hey Bob………..why can’t we look at more stories than just the last few of each month in your archives? And I can’t even go look at the stories from the beginning of this month now. Can you fix that please?


  • September 11, 2009  - MenInRed says:

    LJ is still a strong runner but I think he has lost some of his speed with that first step, he looks a little slow out of the shoot when he launches for the hole but then builds speed as he runs. Compare LJ with J. Charles in thier first 5 yards and you can see what I’m talking about.

    GO CHIEFS!!!


  • September 11, 2009  - ED says:

    Pro-bowl season. Thats what how I’m describing LJ in 2009. Last year he had some good rushing games despite not getting that many carries. This guy still has at least 2 pro-bowl seasons left in that body including this one. IF he can get the carries he’s got in the past. 25 plus he’ll be a pro-bowl back. The o-line isn’t what it use to be but even behind an average o-line this guy has enough talent to put up pro-bowl numbers.


  • September 11, 2009  - Scott says:

    It will certainly be interesting to see if LJ can become effective again. Will the motivation be there? I hope you’re right, ED. LJ having a “Pro-Bowl season” would go a long way in us having a decent offense. Hopefully, with an improved D, we won’t get behind early in games this year…which basically takes away the running game as an option. And our receiving corps is not strong enough this year (as it stands) to carry this Offense. We MUST be able to run the ball. So here’s to hoping LJ still has something to prove…and isn’t just cashing in on his last big payday. I’m optomistic…but not convinced.


  • September 11, 2009  - Chris_Texas says:

    MenInRed, not sure if you know but J.Charles was an All-American track guy did quite well his Freshmen and Sophmore years in college. He just decided his jr yr to drop track and only play football and he has blazing speed. He can make a lot of running backs look as if the have a slow 1st step. So don’t base it on that. I do agree that LJ isn’t what he was but I have to agree with ED he has a couple 1500+ years left and I think mentally he is better than he has ever been which will do alot. I agree if he can avg 20 – 25 carries a game he will hit 1500. The trick will be the offense doing well enough to get him that many carries without doing the LJ to the left, LJ to the right and LJ up the gut. I believe Haley will mix it up so if he gets the carries we will have a good year.


  • September 11, 2009  - Scott says:

    Just to play Devil’s Advocate…

    It wasn’t that long ago that most people thought LJ would be cut from the team. And many WANTED him cut from the team. Knowing that no other team would sign him for anywhere NEAR the money he stood to make playing for the Chiefs this year…LJ’s attitude seemingly changed. All he had to do was be on the opening day roster to get his money. So, he stood to lose millions. The question is…will his attitude change again after his money is “guaranteed”? I still think there’s a good chance that it will…and that he’ll revert back to his old, unhappy-to-be-a-Chief ways. I hope I’m wrong.


  • September 11, 2009  - Scott says:

    Just to add…

    Personally…I think LJ is probably the most over-rated running back in the league. Maybe of all-time. The only good seasons he had, was running behind one of the best O-lines to ever take the field. I think any half-assed RB could have put up roughly the same numbers as LJ did, and maybe even better…with those guys blocking.

    I could be wrong…but, that’s my two cents.


  • September 11, 2009  - Pro Scout says:

    I think LJ is smart enough to realize that if he has any shot at making good money after this year that he will only get it if he puts up 1200 yards or so. He’s probably the single most important player on our offense this year. Our other three RBs are close to being up there as well. We have to be an excellent running team this year to have a shot at respectability. Our defense is close, but we have to help them out by keeping them off the field.

    “It’s all about the T.O.P.” – Derrick Thomas


  • September 11, 2009  - Pro Scout says:

    From ESPN:

    “Keep an eye on Bobby Wade and the Chiefs. Todd Haley coached Wade in Chicago and the Chiefs badly need veteran receivers. Really, I’d be surprised if Wade doesn’t join the Chiefs. He was cut Thursday by Minnesota.”

    After Sunday’s game, look for the Chiefs to bring Wade in. I forgot about his ties to Haley.


  • September 11, 2009  - camarohead1978 says:

    Scott,

    I don’t think I would call him the most overrated back in the league, and certainly not the most of all time. I think Jamal Lewis holds that title. He was good behind a great line, but became less-than-good when the line in front of him was degraded.

    I’m not saying LJ isn’t overrated, just not to the extent of Lewis.


  • September 11, 2009  - B in SC says:

    I agree 100% with Scott. LJ has done nothing with the OL in decline. He was a lot like Denver’s running backs when they could plug anyone into the slot behind their OL and get 1000. None of them ever went to another team and did anything (that I can recall). He doesn’t have much in individual ability really. He isn’t very fast, he isn’t elusive, and he can’t run over people anymore like he used to on occasion. Without big holes, it doesn’t bode well for him. I noticed in the pre-season that he pretty much goes down on first contact anymore. His long runs were always when he didn’t have anyone hit him.

    Hope the OL gets better in a real hurry.


  • September 11, 2009  - Chris_Texas says:

    Scott, I don’t think LJ is playing nice to get his money and Yes I was one who e-mailed,blogged whoever I could and made it clear I thought LJ should be cut, traded whatever. The thing is he showed up for OTA’s, lost the weight, did what the coaches ask, stayed out of trouble. He is going to perform his the best of his ability is he over-rated depends who you talk to. I personally don’t think he is even close to the HOF if the line would have held up over these last 3 years he’d most likely be talked about. Most of this is coming from LJ is not been the type of guy to put shine on anything or kiss anyone’s backside and don’t see him starting now thats all..


  • September 11, 2009  - camarohead1978 says:

    B in SC,

    Ever heard of Clinton Portis? haha


  • September 11, 2009  - Anonymous says:

    Before the trash talking and sarcasm start, if any posters are firemen, or policemen, thanks. On this date it would serve all well to remember the sacrifice and contribution to our lives they have made. One of the reasons I cut Whitlock slack was his response to the attack, which is how I learned of it on the way home from dropping kids off at school.
    Larry is going to have a big year. Not the best running back in the league, but a good running back. This week yards will be hard to come by, but they will come through out the year.


  • September 11, 2009  - Scott says:

    Chris_Texas says:
    “The thing is he showed up for OTA’s, lost the weight, did what the coaches ask, stayed out of trouble.”

    The big question is, though…did he do that because he wants to kick ass on the field? Or did he do that because he knew he would lose several million dollars if he didn’t?

    We’ll find out soon enough. Once he’s on the opening day roster, he gets his money. After that? Remains to be seen. Hey, I really do hope he proves me wrong.


  • September 11, 2009  - Anonymous says:

    Pride and Haley will keep him working hard, or it will be hello to Mr. Charles.
    Heard on the radio this a.m. that of the 30 players on last years roster that are no longer employed here, only two have caught on elsewhere. I have not verified this, and some will be signed after week one. Still, it does put the last regime in perspective.


  • September 11, 2009  - Chris_Texas says:

    As far as O-Line’s making running backs look good that holds true to anyone. I don’t care who is running. A great team will have the O-Line and D-Line that is solid top to bottom as they make everyone else look good. Winning the line of scrimmage is the key to every play whether offense or defense which has been my frustration over the last couple years as we have not focussed on getting our lines up to par. Most QB’s, running backs, and WR’s at this level can play I did say most. If you have the speed and ability to get to this level you can get through a hole and brake a tackle or two. Most QB’s at this level given the time can hit a WR on the run and most of the WR’s at this level can catch so if the QB is scrammbling for his life throwing constantly under pressure and the running back is dodging D-linemen in the back field your going to look bad. Same goes for Defense if the opposing QB has the time he will find a WR and hit one making the DB’s look bad and if there line is getting the RB to the second level now and again he will brake one on you and make LB’s look bad.

    Now he is jinxed. Ed I am not sure you have ever been right with your predictions. If fact it seems that the opposite always happens. I am putting my money on Scott’s prediction.

    Knowing Haley’s preference for the passing game I wonder how soon he will abandon the running game if it sputters early.


  • September 11, 2009  - ILChiefsFan says:

    I’ll miss ya, Scott.

    I do think the Chiefs can beat the spread, and if I were in Vegas I’d be very tempted to bet on it. The Ravens have not been very good at covering in season openers since 2000, and they probably don’t have a good idea of what the Chiefs will throw at them offensively or defensively.

    We need to see about the Chiefs defense. It’s been promising so far, but the preseason is the preseason. The Chiefs defense was middle of the pack statistically in the 2008 preseason, and at the bottom in the regular season. If the defense doesn’t play well Sunday we’re looking at something along the lines of Chiefs-Panthers 2008.

    Ravens 17-9.

    One TD (probably on D, or at least set-up by the D) and three Succop field goals is my prediction. 16 points. Now, if our D can hold them to less than that…we’re good to go.

    Lassie,

    Love it, you insult instead of respond to a criticism of Herm. Admit it you are no bigger fan of him than any of us.
    Todd only has to go 1-15, neg.4, neg. 6 to equal Herm’s pattern. I’m not saying Herm is a bad coach, yes I am, just his act would fly better some where more aligned with his stature. Anyone for eight man football?
    You play to win the game! No Herm you didn’t. Your biggest fan said in an earlier post that only the last year was a rebuilding year, reread your stuff Lassie, so what was the 4-12? The coach taking over for you, and rebuilding your destruction, will have trouble reaching that. Improvement and wins we will see, but it will be a hard fought battle.
    For those that doubt that Lassie and Bob are the same or working together, take a look at this thread. Slow, very few responses, then the village idiot, drunk, whatever gets on and it explodes in posts. Bad doggie, bad doggie

    The bet was never made. Remember? You didn’t have the balls to take me up on it. And you still don’t. Just like you didn’t have the balls to take me up on the bet that Haley will have more wins this seasons that Herm did the last two.

    You should change your name to “Rin all-mouth-and-no-balls-to-back-it-up-with Tin Tin”. Listen…don’t sweat it. It’s what we’ve all come to expect from you. We knew you wouldn’t disappoint. But hey, we’re just “dumb” Chiefs fans anyway…so what do we know? Right?

    Ravens defensive backs are the only weakness, and even it is stronger than most. Quick slants, screens, or any short patterns might be the only chance. It will be fun to watch, at least I know if it gets to the end of the game, Herm will not order up a fieldgoal, and have his 31st ranked defense try to save the day.
    Lassie will be back shortly, currently out chasing cars.

    Extremely Off-topic, but:

    I’m streaming the “Between the Lines” show on WHB right now and these doofuses should be ashamed of what they don’t know about Chiefs football. I haven’t listed to this show before yesterday, and I don’t know the names of these guys, but they sure don’t mind dishing out harsh judgments when they don’t even have their facts straight.

    I’ll pretend they’re listening and just say:
    - The 30 replaced players that Pioli spoke about this morning were not just from the 53-master; they included the practice squad
    - It’s remotely possible that Todd Haley is not lying to you and that Cassell may actually not start against the Ravens
    - Jason Babin is a defensive end, not a tight end
    - Jon Runyan didn’t decide he wanted to skip training camp, he’s just coming back from microfracture surgery in the offseason

    Sheesh! That’s some sorry radio.

    I agree regarding the 810 radio shows. I do listen to Petro’s podcast from the Chief’s site and to The Program occasionally and they’re usually good, so I thought I’d try some of the other shows. I liked what I heard of the Border Patrol as well.


  • September 11, 2009  - SG says:

    “Having established that, who equated you with Lassie?”

    They never admitted to who they were – this occurred a week or two back in one of these blogs. Basically said that I and Rin were the same person. Very insulting to be sure. I challenged them to take a real name (which they never did) and have a real discussion – a challenge which still stands today if they’re reading our exchange.

    Let us review: 59% of the team Herm’s Chiefs, and even more – 64% – hold starting positions.

    Offense -

    Albert, Waters, Niswanger, Bowe (right, he’s now reserve, right…’check’), Bradley, Johnson & Cox makes 64% – add an 8th Sunday in Croyle makes 73% – WOW! E’en if we tried to help out :roll: remove Croyle and either Bowe or Bradley it STILL be 55% Herm’s Men at minimum!

    Defense –

    Hali, Johnson or Williams (both Herm’s), Dorsey, Tyler or Edwards (both Herm’s), Flowers, Carr & Page or McGraw (both Herm’s Men) for 64% of the starting ‘D’.

    STs – Colquitt & Gafford – 67% Herm’s Men.

    Alex the “great”,

    I am not “head over heels” for Cassel. And I never said anything about him being the “best thing to ever come to KC”. Don’t put words in my mouth. All I’ve said all along is that he’s the best QB on our roster. And he is…like him or not. Unlike you, and some others, I’m willing to see the man play in a Chiefs uniform before I declare he’s a “bust”. I do think he has a ton of potential, though. He’s a leader. And we haven’t have a real leader on the Offense since Trent got leveled.

    BTW…was there a BETTER option at QB this past off-season that we could have signed?

    And I stand by my comments about LJ.

    Analonymous, you can see clearly (thru the brown haze nee hue that be you) that Bernard Pollard as vested veteran will not be signed by anyone until sometime aft game 1 for rea$on$ said.

    Rin can imagine Pollard coming in to KC game #2 as a RADUH! and putting the ‘Bonecrush’ on the feeble Chiefs, final score about 27-10 Oakland.

    KC finishes the game 0-2 on the season, Bernard’s cleat marks displayed prominently upon their face that only a Chiefsandumb could love…

    heh heh heh

    :lol: & :razz:
