Default Chiefs are funny, man! LJ blasts coach through Twitter!

Johnson gives father credit over Haley
ESPN.com news services

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has belittled his rookie head coach on what appears to be his Twitter account, saying Todd Haley has "nuthn" when it comes to NFL-quality credentials.

The remarks were posted several hours after the Chiefs (1-6) were routed at home 37-7 by San Diego.

One tweet read: "My father got more creditentials than most of these pro coaches." That is followed by: "My father played for the coach from "rememeber the titans". Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn."

Haley did not play high school or college football. He attended college on a golf scholarship. He was hired by first-year general manager Scott Pioli to replace the fired Herm Edwards.

"I talked to Larry about it and he was focusing more on pumping up his father than anything else," Johnson's agent Peter Schaffer said. "He wasn't trying to downgrade anyone ... yes, everyone is frustrated after a loss like this but I wouldn't put too much into it."

Johnson had 49 yards on 16 carries in the Chiefs' defeat. Kansas City has a bye next week.

A spokesman for the Chiefs said Monday it was not certain if the tweets, posted under the alias of "Toonicon" were posted by Johnson. The Kansas City Star reported, however, that Johnson had said the online alias is his and the account includes a link to Johnson's personal Web site.

The final post read: "Make me regret it. Lmao. U don't stop my checks. Lmao. So 'tweet' away."

The tweets drew responses, including one that referred to a nightclub incident in which Johnson was accused of spitting in someone's face. Johnson's response include a three-letter homophobic slur.

Hate to agree with LJ, but from what I've seen of Haley, he's a real dick.

i only believe it if Fatsis wrote it on Haley. I love the spin the agent puts on it. LJ is done regardless of who is HC. It is so Raider-esque. Two out of four teams ruining the franchise. Just think that the Chargers thought 3 teams in the division were going 6 feet under. We will just cruise along when it matters most.....regular season not the off season.

He's slamming on what his coach brings to the team and he has 16 carries for 49 yards? Has 0 TD's for the year, an average of 2.7 yards per carry? Someone needs to look in the mirror before he opens his big mouth.

Report: Larry Johnson hurls slur at the media

Posted by Mike Florio on October 26, 2009 2:34 PM ET

From our friends at KCSP in Kansas City comes the latest development in the sudden eruption of Mt. L.J.

When reporters entered the locker room on Monday, Johnson said, "I'm not talking [until] Thursday."

And then Johnson uttered a sentence that surely will catch the interest of the league office.

Per KCSP, Johnson said partially under his breath, "Get your ****** asses out of here."

Um. Oops.

We're told that audio of the encounter is coming. So stay tuned.

As Gregg Rosenthal pointed out earlier in the day, Johnson used the three-letter version of that epithet on Twitter.

Can you blame him for being a dick? Herm was soft on his players and so was DV. Herm could never prepare his teams, that's why they always started the season off slow. DV and Herm took it easy on their players and they became soft.

Haley was hard on his players in Arizona because he expected more out of them. He helped mold Fitzgerald into an All-Pro by being hard on him. He did the same thing to Bowe this season and he looks miles better than last year already. Bowe hasn't been dropping the ball this year. He's making catch after catch.

This is the NFL. If LJ doesn't like having his job at stake every week like everyone else, than maybe he needs to be working in a grocery store in Pennsylvania.

Well, according to the scroll at NFL Network, he will be staying away from the Chiefs organization for the near future. Hopefully the Chiefs save a little of that money by being able to suspend paying him for his comments. Then again, it wouldnt hurt us for them to shell out the pay but I hate to see players do detrimental things to an organization knowing that they are getting paid upfront. LJ issued an apology to his organization, staff and teammates.
