LJNFL

Yes LJNFL. What does that mean? Larry Johnson Not For Long in the NFL. I feel iI reflect the thoughts of most Chiefs fans when I say to Larry, GOOD RIDDANCE. Frankly, Dick Vermiel, who objected to Carl’s drafting of Larry, had it right when he told L.J. to take off the diapers. Larry acted like a spoiled petulant child throughout his tenure in K.C. and was the beneficiary of a great offensive line in his statistically successful years.

L.J. searching for a new home reminded me of other Chiefs who have found new homes. I reviewed the rosters of the other NFL teams searching out former Chiefs. Here are my results:

Todd Collins QB Washington
Benny Sapp DB Minnesota
Ty Law CB Denver
Vonnie Holiday DE Denver
Casey Wiegmann C Denver
Tony Gonzalez TE Atlanta
Scot Fujita LB New Orleans
Ryan Sims DT Tampa Bay
Tank Tyler DE Carolina
Jared Allen DE Minnesota
Turk McBride DE Detroit
Kris Wilson TE San Diego
Tyler Thigpen QB Miami
Keyaron Fox LB Pittsburgh

One thing stands out. Where are the offensive lineman we have drafted or signed?

While some people point out our failures to adequately re-stock our defensive line, everyone has forgotten we have failed miserably to put emphasis on our offensive line in the draft.As a result our run game has been non-existent and pass protection iffy at best. Without an adequate offensive line you cannot control the line of scrimmage and expose your defense to quick “three and outs.” I suggest that during next year’s draft and free agency period significant attention be turned to these areas if our franchise is to make an about face!
