Chris Johnson takes shot at Arizona Cardinals after their Thursday Night loss

The former running back has some sour grapes... But does he have a point?

It was a bad game for the Arizona Cardinals. They lost a number of key players, had an awful supporting performance for their backup quarterback and made some bad decisions coaching.

Yet, it wasn’t a shocking outcome by any means.

That didn’t mean former Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson didn’t have some thoughts he wanted to get off his chest:

This is obviously a shot at the decision making of Steve Keim and his staff on the offensive line.

Many fans have said similar things over the last couple of weeks, but coming from a former player, a running back who struggled to find any running room behind an offensive line full of backups is a little different.

Now, Johnson didn’t have much to say when Adrian Peterson was running wild on the Buccaneers and 49ers, so maybe this is more sour grapes than anything else. Or, maybe he has a point about the offensive line.

The problem is, Keim and company have tried over and over to fix this. They just have had a combination of bad scouting and bad luck.

Humphries injury, Iupati’s injury and maybe some bad ideas with Shipley and Boehm have made this a bad offensive line.

Yet, it isn’t for lack of trying.

What do you think?

Is Johnson right or is it just sour grapes?
