JoePong Posted July 6, 2007 Report Share Posted July 6, 2007 INSIDE DISH: Bengals players respect and admire RB Rudi Johnson for his toughness, durability and consistency on the field. But his timeliness is being questioned. Johnson is always the last player on the field for practice and always the last player to board the team bus and plane. His laid-back manner is being interpreted as nonchalance. Even worse, laziness. The club drafted Kenny Irons for several reasons -- to improve the speed and explosiveness of the offense and to light a fire under Johnson, who averaged only 3.8 yards a carry on his way to 1,309 yards and 12 TDs. Chick Ludwig covers the Bengals for the Dayton Daily News. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
