    Sorry you are wrong!

    How good of rookie season did McKinnie have (and he was the 7th overall pick)?

    Answer: Horrible

    6 years from now when Johnson has been to his 4th probowl you will be singing his praises.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    You have to give the O-linemen at least two years to see if they are going to make the grade.

    He did a good job for his rookie season.All the false starts and penalties should dwindle down this year. I really think M.J. will be our RT for years to come!

    I hope you are right but like before you are going to let him play more then part of a season before we start talking about multiple Pro bowl appearances.

    Johnson will do better playing next to Artis Hicks this year.
    Hicks' has experience and maturity which will help Johnson calm down and play smart during games.

    Its always nice to have a veteran to learn from.

    Horrible? Hardly. Did he live up to his reputation? No, but he was average and I would guess the experience helped.
