First of all - 1st post on forum -- been visiting for a while...

this may have been posted, or may just be wishful/stupid thinking...

how about...

Larry Johnson -- a PSU grad, self proclaimed Steelers fan, and I believe still has something to prove -- it's obvious... KC is not in his future... I say make a trade and try a new RB to try to pound the ball again...

just my .02..

thoughts? Am I delusional?

there is more chances that FWP re-sign with us during the season(we all know it is team policy to not negotiate during the season) than see us trading or signing LJ

Yes, you are dilusional.

I honestly enjoyed more of the "big back" wishes in the past like Ron Dayne, TJ Duckett, Greg Jones, Anthony Thomas, Brandon Jacobs, Javorski Lane dreams ........instead of the PSU, PITT, WVU homer dreams.

Now that the Bus is no longer on Sunday nights, he's got some free time. Bring back The Bus! Larry Johnson had a good run, but I think he was a product of his o-line more than anything. Every running back is to some extent though, with the exception of Barry Sanders.

We will not see Johnson in black and gold. I think he even had some character issues a while back. I say no Johnson is not our answer.

No. Johnson has attitude problems and he's past his prime.

There's one RB in the NFL that I can dream about playing for the Steelers and that's Stephen Jackson. HIs talent is wasted with the Rams. It will never happen though.

....he's dealt with two court dates that are set for December. One stems from a Feb. 24 incident in which he allegedly shoved a woman with an open hand in a Kansas City restaurant.

.The other stems from an incident at a Kansas City nightclub on Oct. 10, a case with details that, if true, are even more sordid.

According to a police report about the most recent incident, Johnson was at Club Blonde, a Kansas City hot spot, when he spotted a woman whom he had offered to a buy drink a week earlier. The woman had refused then and this time Johnson told a friend of the woman that he wanted to speak to her. When the woman approached Johnson, she claimed, he threatened to kill her boyfriend. As she backed away, Johnson allegedly took a drink and spit it on her face before his two bodyguards tackled her and bouncers escorted her outside.

The woman also claims that Johnson tried to spit on her three more times after he was asked to leave the club by the manager

Johnson also has to find a way to redeem himself with his team after a series of rules violations -- including being late to meetings as well as flights for games at New England and Carolina.

Why sign a running back when that is not the problem?

Hah! I bet Dookie ends up on the roster for like 2 weeks mid-season. He always turns up somehow; we can't get rid of the guy. Just watch ... one well-placed injury and he's back.

edit: oh, and also, there's no way we get Johnson. His best days are way behind him.
