This is starting to carry on like an old pair of holy socks, that you keep pulling out of the draw. What is it now? All of a sudden there's a change of heart.

Before he couldn't wait to get out of Kansas City,and now he doesn't mind staying. Yes, Larry Johnson can still play ball, and yes, if he puts his whole heart in soul to the organization and buys into the system, he can be a productive runningback.

But you must ask yourself if your Todd Haley, is it worth the chance? I know Todd Haley said everybody starts fresh at the beginning of camp. But can we trust that Larry Johnson doesn't pull another one of his stunts if he doesn't get the ball like he wants to? I'm still not sold on the fact that he can become a new man and be a team player.

His pass history is just to much for me to believe that he can become a team player again. But don't get me wrong, I would love to believe in him and think that he's ready to be a real man, and finally step up to the plate, but there's just to much damage done. It's time to just bury the hatchet and move on and let Larry take his side show somewhere else.

Maybe he might just find a diaper that fits...
