Bob Hunter commentary: Maybe Johnson isn't such a bad guy after...

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

As recently as two weeks ago, some were writing that Larry Johnson's once-lustrous NFL career appeared to be over, killed in part because of his lack of productivity, in part because he had lost his desire and in part because he's a bad guy.

LJ and Ced should be in the Canadian Football League, but instead they're with the Bengals...who ironically have worse uniforms than any CFL team, too!

You're absolutely right about LJ being more tolerable when he's producing and the team is winning. And now you're falling into that same trap.
He's not a good guy, and it has nothing to do with his yardage. And even the anti-gay tweets and comments aren't the biggest thing. He has assaulted women, several times (that we know about).
Of course he is humble now. He has been humbled, and everything is going his way. But he was a lousy teammate, who often refused (or simply couldn't) block.
Maybe the best test is this -- KC still has the same horrible OL. Why is Charles averaging twice as many yards per carry as LJ did?

Ironically Cedrick Benson was one of the leading rushers in the NFL before he was injured. Your comment lacks any relevance to this article and is plain stupid.

I am a Bengal fan who views LJ for what he is. A self absorbed jerk. Sure, he ran for 100+ yesterday.
Sure, he is saying all the right things now because he has had to eat some crow. However dont allow yourself to think that this guy has changed. He is a guy who has had enablers through the years and when those folks got tired of his act, they jettisoned him to Cincy, the center of the football universe for players who are clowns off the field who then reveal their ineptitude eventually on the field. Larry Johnson should not have been signed.

Ironically, Cedric doesn't spell his name with a K at the end. He's probably too lazy to write the additional letter, just like you're too lazy to recognize how he spells it.

Haha... this guy is a washed up bum playing hard for one more contract. Good luck in Cincy with that POS. Time will tell that he is a curse to any franchise...YOU'LL SEE soon enough.
Prediction: Cincy loses in the AFC Championship game, resigns"dead legs larry" and sets the team back another 5 years.
Same old Bengals

This is a pointless article even for Bob Hunter. He had a decent game against the worst team in the NFL and didn't act like a jerk after the game.

Perhaps you missed the multiple incidents of Larry harassing women or more recently his extensive use of gay slurs. You've had him for one week. Good luck.
