who is priests backup?

Postby Josh Weed » Sat Sep 06, 2003 7:14 am

I thought it was going to be johnson, but now it looks like blaylock. What is the situation here, and should I pick up blaylock to back up priest, or do you guys think johnson will still be the guy if priest got hurt??

Priest's Backup

Postby trentvaughn » Sat Sep 06, 2003 9:41 am

It looks like it will be Blaylock for at least week 1. Rookies have a tough time with blitz pickups sometimes. A little time watching will provide Johnson an opportunity to learn. He's a real talent, just give him some time.

Blaylock will be the backup but i would not reccomend picking either up. I dont think either would have an impact if prist went down.

My 2 cents

Larry Johnson will never develop into a top RB. He was overhyped from the beginning. His horrible preseason is a sign of things to come. Dont buy the hype.

Give me a break. If we don't believe "the hype" what and who do we believe.. You? I think Larry Johnson will be a very good back once he gets out of priests shadow(im guessing like 2 years from now). He's learning from the best.

Larry Johnson is from Penn State, therefore his pro prospects are dim. He will either reveal a lack of pro skills or a propensity for an endless string of injuries. Take him if you dare, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. :-t
