but for years he's been highly touted and hasnt made that great of an impact, or not as much as he's hyped up to have done...if you have a different opinion, theres nothing i can do to change your mind b/c we are talking about a defensive player and defensive players cant be measured by stats...its just something i have felt...just as you have felt differently....

my opinion= OVER-RATED


Fair Enough.

I just think that some of the knocks against him (not just you) aren't fair. He can't shed blocks? A lot of those blocks are double and triple teams because they know if they don't block him he is going to make the play. This also leaves others unblocked. There is nothing wrong with a defender taking out one or two blockers. Somebody is going to get blocked. That's why there's 11 guys on the field. Also, there is not a player in the league who isn't "knicked up" a lot. Obviously if he starts all 16 games in all but 1 year he isn't injury prone. I guess we'll just agree to disagree on this one like you said.

its pretty darn fun to watch larry johnson...not my favorite player just yet but the dudes a horse..

he runs over people or carries the pile...kinda has the deuce mcallister, he has those long-legged strides while trying to pick a hole but when he finds it he has almost a reggie bush type of burst...deuce just doesnt have that burst...

i knew this guy was suppossed to be a pretty good running back out of penn state but damn, i dont think anyone saw that he had THIS KIND OF TALENT

Agreed! Hard to not like watching the guy - even when he was hurt the last few games he's a sight to behold.

If they were "that" lucky, maybe the whole team should all go buy some lottery tickets

LT is the centerpoint of my fantasy team. He can't be that easy to shut down. He just can't!
