Yesterday, we had a question about a Chiefs quarterback whose name I’m still not writing. Today, comes a question about the guy who lines up behind him–Larry Johnson. Take the over or the under on whether or not L.J. will rush for 1,400. I’m taking the over.
I think that Iron Man will average over 87.5 yards per game by season’s end, even if he has one of his traditional slow starts. In fact, when he went down last season he was really rounding into form. In his last six games, he only didn’t reach 100 yards against the Vikings (the Williams Sisters), Jaguars (John Henderson and Marcus Stroud) and Packers (got hurt well before the game ended). I don’t think many running backs would have under good circumstances, let alone Larry’s. Given a full preseason and much better circumstances? Definitely the over.
Over or under 1,400 yards rushing for L.J. in 2008, Addicts?
