With the Larry Johnson saga taking so long to play out, the Chiefs had a more eventful bye week than most teams.
The full squad is back in Kansas City and preparing for this week’s game. The Twitter account of a team employee showed a new sign that greeted players upon their return.
“Losers assemble in small groups and complain about the coaches and other players,” the sign reads. “Winners assemble as a team and find ways to WIN.” (The sign also has the word “team” placed over the Chiefs logo.)
Not assembling as part of the team Wednesday, of course, is Johnson. His two week suspension will run through Sunday’s game.
We’ll see how the team responds to the sign’s not-so-subtle message in Jacksonville Sunday, which should be a winnable game.
Johnson’s response next week, assuming he’s still around, will be even more interesting.
