The League


Can Larry Johnson Come back?

After getting arrested, Twitter-bashing his coach and tossing homosexual slurs at reporters, can the embattled running back ever resurrect his career?

How hard is keeping quiet?

If he doesn't grow up and put on some big boy pants he's going to find himself out of the league.

Anything's Possible

If Michael Vick and Ricky Williams can turn it on again, why not LJ?

LJ's revenge

Don't be surprised if Johnson makes a late run at the Pro Bowl just to spite his previous employers and fans.

LJ's numbers don't lie

I'm not saying he doesn't deserve another shot. I just don't know how much he has left.

He'll be back

NFL teams have signed drunk drivers, sexual assaulters, petty criminals, felons and dog killers -- Larry Johnson is no exception.

Performance trumps slurs

Johnson could have said just about anything had he been averaging five yards a carry for a Chiefs team that was 7-1 and not 1-7.

If the team fits

Larry Johnson can be effective but the situation has to be perfect or it'll blow up in the head coach's face.

Follow Cedric Benson

If Larry Johnson takes responsibility and finds a genuine desire to chance, then he has the talent to find a renaissance.

He's not Cedric Benson

I don't know if Larry Johnson has had the "man in the mirror" moment where he realizes that a lot of his wounds are self inflicted.
