The 20 most important players in the playoffs

Quote:
20. David Johnson, running back, Cardinals: In Weeks 15-16, the Cardinals smothered the Eagles and Packers by a combined margin of 53 points. Johnson's breakout game against Philadelphia was followed by another strong effort vs. Green Bay. What makes him so critical is that he's a big play waiting to happen as a runner, pass-catcher and returner. He can go the distance at any time.

seems like he really hasn't had any room to work, as the GB defense seems to hit him in the backfield more often than not. And Carson Palmer is struggling to throw accurately with the finger injury (and not getting time to throw).
ugh. (and he's just been picked off).

DJ just kept the drive alive . . . resulted in a TD for the lead rather than a FG to tie.

Unfortunately, as great as his play was, it will get lost in the flukiness of the TD.

DJ should have had that sweep the play before that one. Would have made 3rd down conversion possible.

David Johnson has already made quite an impression in his rookie season, and hopefully he gets many more chances to make headlines. I'm sure he won't be losing sleep over the flukiness of the score.

I'm sure he is very happy right now. However, it is too bad that his extraordinary play will get lost in the super-extraordinary plays related to the last two TDs in regulation and the huge play in OT.

Why? I don't think he'll have a problem playing second fiddle to a former NFL MVP and Larry Fitzgerald in the big plays department. Especially when they ended up winning the game! He's just a rookie... I think his contribution will do just fine.

Larry Fitzgerald is the heart and soul of the Arizona Cardinals. It is poetic justice that he made those gamewinning plays.

Me too...how badly did I want them to give it to him for the winning score? What a great play call on the shovel pass to Fitz, though.

DJ had an amazing catch and willed himself for a first down, by less than an inch, that lead to a touchdown late in the game. It won't show up as more than a 10 yard grab in the state line but the Cardinals lose the game if that play doesn't happen. DJ made a difference. #PantherProud

Think it safe to say, barring a meteor strike directly on the Carolina panther bench, AZ will be traveling for next game.

I'm not sure I would call that an amazing catch, but it was certainly a good catch. I thought he did not get a good spot on that play. If you were like me, you were watching Johnson all the way on that play. The defense had not been paying enough attention to Johnson (as a receiver) and he made them pay for it.

What I liked about Johnson's game yesterday was all his one or two yard plays. There are games where getting those one or two yards is your job. He didn't try to freelance and end up either losing yards or fumbling (e.g. Bengals running back last week).

I do think that Johnson maybe was a second late looking for a pass near the end zone. Hard to tell if the pass was over his head, but Palmer obviously thought DJ was going to stop his route. So, the pass ended up slightly behind him (maybe high) and almost intercepted.

Still, I think Johnson had a very good game. Now, if he could just get traded to the Rams for next year.

I used amazing based on the situation, third and long and the fact it was thrown behind him and in traffic but fair enough. Perhaps amazing was a stretch. The pass you were referring to was just a bad pass from Carson. Palmer played a horrible game and I think his finger is bothering him quite a bit. At the end of the day, they found a way to win and are one game from the Super Bowl.

Correct - it was a bad pass by Palmer. Palmer was mad at himself after that one. Not a good night for him but made the plays when needed. Tall task ahead this weekend.

It may have been a bad pass, but Johnson certainly did not look good on that play. Johnson looked confused at the start of the play (like he didn't realized the ball had been snapped). The pass was pretty much past him before he realized it. Maybe Carson was mad at himself, but it certainly appeared that he was looking at Johnson at the same time.

Johnson admitted that he was confused throughout the game. Natural for a rookie. Two straight games against playoff teams where he hasn't been great. That being said, he has hung in there and made plays and the Cardinals are still alive. I hope he has a great game in Charlotte this weekend.

Heard the Cardinals color commentator on Mike and Mike this morning and not sure it is the exact quote, but it was effectively David Johnson has made their offense work. He did say he's had trouble picking up blitzes at times, but still was complimentary.

David Johnson is listed on Arizona's injury report this week, with some sort of toe injury. Listed as "limited" participation in practice both on Wednesday and Thursday.

I saw that. Hopefully it's just precautionary so that he's good to go Sunday.
