Kind of surprised his first catch of the year wasn't featured. Not at all surprised the Philly run was #2.

A few interesting articles about David:
http://blog.azcardinals.com/2016/06/...h-not-johnson/

ESPN has David as the #4 running back and #8 overall fantasy pick.

Yep. He and his group were really funny. Didn't get chosen to play fast money though... that was a couple of other guys.

David off to a good start to his second NFL season, opening against New England.
Game could still go either way, but DJ adding to the highlight reel and getting lots of love from the commentators.

That run he pulled off last night was insane, again.

To quote Kent Somers - who covers the Cardinals out in Phoenix: "Won't see many better runs than that. Jump cut, spin, hand on the ground, stiff arm, 45-yard gain."

And I loved this one from Twitter, too: "David Johnson rips off a 45-yard run when he should have lost two."

Nice catch-and-run at the 0:26 mark of this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmZVCoJihC0

He was targeted for a lot of passes last night in addition to carrying the load running. Just a great night for him.

5. On this week's "David Johnson embarrassing defenses", we marvel at the second-year back's breakaway speed on this 58-yard catch-and-run:
bwahaha, I love that line. you can see video of that play by scrolling down on this page.

DJ had a rather ho-hum day on the ground against the Bucs (12 carries for 45 yds), but had had a nice day receiving (3 catches for 98 yards)

I wonder how much longer ballcarriers will be allowed to do stuff like that and stiffarms. They flag pretty much any time when a defender touches a ballcarrier's helmet, but ballcarriers seem to have free reign.

Though I do enjoy seeing what DJ is able to do with those moves.

I've seen several flags in the opening weeks where ballcarriers have been flagged for making contact with a defender's helmet, particularly on stiff-arms. I believe they've called players for illegal hands to the face rather than a face mask. Either way, I've seen it enforced. Packer fans probably remember Cobb or Adams getting flagged for it on a play in Jacksonville last week I believe.

DJ is so good that this thread is irrelevant.

There's no need to share his successes because all we have to do is turn on ESPN to see them.

Isn't that great? I thought he would find a way to make a name for himself and be a contributor somewhere, but who could have imagined how his rep and recognition would explode less than 2 years into his career?

Peter King gave DJ a little love in his MMQB column.

Quote:
David Johnson, running back, Arizona. The second-year back from Northern Iowa continued to buttress a rising-star reputation Thursday night in the 33-21 win at San Francisco on a day when the running game had to be dominant as Carson Palmer (concussion) sat. Johnson rushed 27 times for an NFL season-high 157 yards and two touchdowns, and added 28 receiving yards. “He is the catalyst,” said Larry Fitzgerald. “When he starts getting his groove, teams start coming down to the box. It gives us opportunities to make some plays behind the defense in the passing game. Some of the cuts and some of the things he’s able to do on the field, you just don't see that too often.” That’s what I see too.
Also:

Quote:
1. I think these are my one-sentence truths of Week 5:

a. If I could pick one running back for the next five years to center my running game around, it’d be David Johnson of the Cardinals.

Quite possibly the worst o-line in the league. That DJ or Carson Palmer can do anything behind them speaks to how well they're playing. Palmer is running for his life on almost every play.

I'm thinking about getting my son a DJ jersey for Christmas. I'm thinking about getting myself one too. What do people recommend for buying such apparel? Do some outlets sell "offical NFL" jerseys and others sell unofficial ones? What exactly is the difference and how much more is it worth?
