This whole Chris Johnson/LenDale White situation has become far too public. I say they both shut the heck up and let cooler heads prevail. It’s one thing to joke back and forth and sometimes take the occasional dig, but it sounds like there may be some deeper stuff here. Maybe some resentment, some jealousy. I’m probably making a mountain out of this (I definitely am, but solely for the sake of journalism), but I just don’t understand either guys’ need to make such remarks. Even Coach Fish, the perpetual straight man, has sounded off on the whole ordeal. In doing so, he took a few nice shots at the two, including CJ in particular:
“Every Coach’s Dream?’’ Fisher said with a smile Wednesday. “Maybe with a few exceptions — playing the bongos … and getting hurt in the playoff game.’’
and this guy here…
“I’m sure they’ll come up with something else,” Fisher said. “Dumb and Dumber or something.’’
Alright, so, I’m sure this will pass soon enough. These two have been going at it since #28 arrived in town, and it’s always been a playful thing. It’s actually kinda cute how they both feel the need to outdo and impress one another. Couple of sweethearts.
And to be perfectly honest, I’m not all that crazy about your new nickname Chris. What does it even mean? Wouldn’t every coaches dream go about his or her job in a quite, efficient and, most importantly, humble manner? I know Fish’s would. So instead, I’ll continue to refer to you just as I always have: “Twitch”. I think it makes you sound like a lunatic badass. You’re welcome.
I guess that’s pimpin’, pimpin’…
