LJ’s Twitter Brawl

The Chiefs lost by 30 points today, however, there are far worse things to worry about in the locker room. Just take a look at Larry Johnson’s three tweets on twitter after the game. Johnson’s twitter account is ToonIcon. (Don’t ask me what it means, because I don’t know.) http://twitter.com/toonIcon “my father got more creditentials than most of these pro coaches…..google my father!!!!!!!” “My father played for the coach from “rememeber the titans”. Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn” “My father 3 or 4 state champs in Maryland. 3 or 4 1st rd picks Penn State. . Not including son!!!” That is just the beginning. LJ is now having war with fans. (For those unfamiliar with twitter, anytime you see the @ symbol and a screen name, that means the user is responding to that person.) # @KD2407 then don’t reply then. Still richer then u. Keep goin. Come play our game ooops forgot u can’t.2 minutes ago from UberTwitter in reply to KD2407 # @DrewK30 got nuthn to do wit hiring my father. But u wouldn’t know cuz u don’t play either so keep on the sideline lil gril n cheer.20 minutes ago from UberTwitter in reply to DrewK30 # @DrewK30 sorry to tell u ur the reason y ur broke n dissn on twitter lmao.about 1 hour ago from UberTwitter in reply to DrewK30 # @jaredlaunius think bout a clever diss then that wit ur pillowbiter pic. Christopher street boy. Is what us east coast cats call u.about 1 hour ago from UberTwitter in reply to jaredlaunius # @jaredlaunius. Sorry ur a cornball n ur mom birthed u broke. But I’m cakn patna. While u work or school for 5 dollas n hour. Ha I don’t know what to say anymore about Larry Johnson. He is allowing his ego to get to him. He wants to bad mouth his coach. I’m not happy with Todd Haley and what he’s done, however, LJ has no room to take shots at Haley. First off, he is your coach. Second off, LJ is one of the worst running backs in the NFL right now who has yet to score a touchdown and have a 100 yard rushing game. He is taking shots at fans, calling one a fag. He put down another person bad mouthing their mother for giving birth to that person. And he claimed himself more superior because of his pay checks. I hope Johnson has made a lot of money, because its time to fine this jerk. I had high hopes for LJ, and I guaranteed that he would win the comeback player of the year award. I wonder where he ranks in that category right now.

Chiefs/Eagles pregame

Early in the week, it was reported that Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson won’t play Sunday. The ESPN scrolling news ticker on the bottom says that he is questionable. To be honest with all of you, I have no idea what the deal is. I’ll assume he is out because that was the word from the Kansas City Chiefs PR. WR Dwayne Bowe is questionable and we’ll all find out momentarily if he can play or not. The Chiefs do have WR Bobby Wade, but if Bowe is gone, Wade will have to do a lot for the team due to Bowe’s absence. Bowe so far has been the best player on the team, despite he hasn’t gained many yards receiving. He’s caught a game-leading touchdown against Oakland and Baltimore.

This past week on CZ, my keys to the game were simply to play good football on all three phases of the game. But there have to be three key ones to pick and I’ve got those three.

Pass rush: Why did the Patriots lose to the Giants in the Super Bowl? Because Tom Brady got sacked five times. No, he never through an interception, however, sack-by-sack, Brady’s confidence continued to decline throughout the game, eventually giving the Giants the rings. Kevin Kolb is the (projected) starting QB due to Donavon McNabb’s injury. Despite throwing for over 391 yards, Kolb did threw two touchdowns and three interceptions, going 31/51. A young guy like Kolb may not get sacked a lot, instead, if the pass rush is applied, Kolb will complete passes to Brandon Flowers. I don’t expect the Eagles to pass heavy like they were last week.
Stop the run: This 3-4 defense did a fine job last week against two good running backs. Brian Westbrook may not be available. Whether he is or not, I imagine Andy Reid will try to keep the ball on the ground rather than forcing interceptions. The Chiefs need to be ready and play good defense all around.
Run LJ, RUN!: Larry Johnson and the rest of the running backs were used a lot last week. LJ had over 100 total yards from scrimmage while Dantrell Savage caught six passes, tied first on the team last week. Jackie Battle was also used on a couple occasions. Offensive coordinator (and head coach..) Todd Haley needs to fire LJ up and have him run over that Philadelphia defense.

I really do feel like this Chiefs team can pick up the win due to injuries sustained on McNabb, Westbrook and DeSean Jackson. Winning against an injured team isn’t much to brag over, but no matter how good or bad you are, you must take advantage of that. That’s the way it works in the NFL. If your opponents have key players on the sideline for the entire game, your being given a chance to draw first blood, and hopefully not allow the other team to unleash with their backups. I’ll pick Kansas City to win 20-17.

EDIT: These in-actives are official. Dwayne Bowe, Donavon McNabb, Brian Westbrook, Kevin Curtis.

DeSean Jackson will play. But here is the question I still propose: Can Kolb get the ball to him successfully? We’ll find out.
