Basically, it was a situation where I was going there to be the guy or whatever. It was still said, yeah, both guys [Johnson and Ivory] were going to get playing time.” Johnson told NFL Media’s Rich Eisen. “I think it was like after the [third] game or something like that, it just switched over and I started getting less and less playing time, and not knowing where it came from.”
Yeah, like a lot of things, probably, I guess, calling the shots, as far as with the team and things that goes on on Sundays, and whatever. I think a lot of it was out of Rex’s hands because when I sat down and talked to Rex before I signed with the Jets, my role and my situation were explained to me totally different to what actually happened. That’s just what it was. It wasn’t never a type of thing where I was just being outplayed or anything like that. It was never a situation where I got the opportunity to show my talents and be used the way that I was supposed to be used.
Johnson had rushed for at least 1,000 yards every season until this last year. Johnson will obviously point to the Jets disfunction as the reason why instead of the normal decline of older running backs.
Me? well i thought you'd never ask. well i'm around 25 years old, give or take, i mean the only way to tell for sure is to cut me open and count my rings but for now i'm content to say i'm 25. i'm freakin funny, and if you disagree with me i will stab you in the jaw. i love to just chill with my friends, they are awesome, they laugh at my jokes, sure, it took some jaw stabbing but hey its not always easy. i haven't quite mastered the whole think before you speak program, apparently, if you start a sentence with "now don't take this the wrong way" people still take it the wrong way. i know, i know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, but it happens. twice while i was fishing, i've seen beavers with paws the size of frying pans that could rip a mans face right off! oh and i hate bears, its just terrible what happened to those two hikers from the czech republic. terrible. i really like to go fourwheeling, i like to work on cars but i'm way to lazy to actually do it. i cant wait to go snowboarding this winter, i'm pretty good, steve once said i looked like a train wreck, he's borderline pro, so that really made my day. oh and once i had a dream.
