Are you disappointed?
Extremely...it will be brutal to watch Clay Shiver II get constantly blown up...:bang2:
Not at all, the over exaggeration of his poor play is more disappointing to me
im looking forward to him, i think he can prove people wrong. hes gotten a lot bigger and i just hope that he can pull out a good season, id like to see this guy spring out. before a huge knock on him was that he is lazy but after adding 15 lbs it shows hes more dedicated to starting so we will see.
did something happen to Andre Gurode that I havent heard about? they did sign him a 1.5mil, 1 yr deal to compete with Johnson
nope i expected as much and keep reasing how he has bulked up so nope I expected him and prolly will expect him next year too
More than anything, I wonder why this poll was put up during draft weekend. The season doesn't start for over 4 months.
I want to see the instant analysis.
I think he's going to be a very good center. People seem to forget how small Mark Stepnoski was. Al Johnson will be fine; and he's much bigger than Stepnoski.
It's Dre vs Al!
have you seen how little step looks now?
One problem with this comparison, Stepnoski was good.
I dont know that he is stronger than Stepnoski is, but I do know for sure that technically Johnson is nowhere close to what Stepnoski was...Step played with great leverage and technique, Johnson plays doesnt
As long as they use Johnson the right way, he'll be fine. If they pull him and take advantage of his athleticism, instead of asking him to move NTs who outweigh him by 50 pounds or more. It all depends on the blocking scheme they intend to employ. And with Larry Allen gone and quicker guards like Kosier and Rivera in, this should be the case. I'm excited about the possibility of actually using the screen pass and not embarrasing ourselves in the process.
Couldn't agree with this more. While he isn't the greatest, he is far better than people make him out to be. PLus if you consider he didn't play at all in 2004 this was basically his rookie year. I THINK I also read that he has put on 15 pounds this off-season too. Not sure but I'm sure I read that.
Instant analysis? We knew Johnson would be out starting center 3 months ago. :laugh2:
