LJ has soft landing
November 19, 2009 - Neil Rudel
Sorry I've been gone for a while.
We'll I've been around but gone from here.
Anyway, I'll try to be more diligent in cyberspace, help keep Mr. Eckenrode "15 Minutes" happy, with a few more frequent thoughts of the sports day:
I can't believe the Cincinnati Bengals would sign Larry Johnson. Just can't believe it.
Not because I don't think LJ deserves another chance. The guy repeatedly embarrassed himself with the Kansas City Chiefs, who made the right decision not to keep him around to break the team's all-time rushing record held by a respected Chief, Priest Holmes.
But because everything has been going so well for a Bengals team that may be the NFL's biggest surprise.
Plus Cincy has a history of working with players who have shown character if not legal flaws and doesn't seem to need another one.
LJ is the son of a very respected coach and he, of course, played at Penn State and before that State College High School. I typically root for the area products so I'm hoping this all works out for him.
But I'm surprised, very surprised, that it wasn't another team.
Like Detroit or Cleveland.
