Chiefs running back Larry Johnson gave the media some Halloween humor at the expense of his head coach. During Herm Edwards’ weekly news conference, Johnson took the podium before the head coach arrived and did his best Edwards impersonation. Dressed in Edwards’ normal NFL sweatshirt, shorts, and red hat, Johnson ranted and raved just like Edwards does.
Johnson left the press conference before any real questions could be asked and before Edwards could get a hold of him. Getting a hold of Johnson has been tough for opposing offenses lately as well. His franchise-record 39 carries for 155 yards and four touchdowns against Seattle last week earned him AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. Johnson ranks third in the NFL in rushing yards (644), leads the league in yards from scrimmage (973), and is second in scoring (60) among non-kickers.
