What a motor for a guy his size. I'm impressed with Tom Johnson, and that's not easy. I also would like to see some more of the same. Greg Williams needs a bigger tool box.

I think it's just a matter of adjusting to the NFL gamespeed after CFL.

Bottom line: he has really great speed which on the other hand can get him into trouble, but at the same time can get him out of it. Definitely a great rotation guy for Ellis' 3-tech spot.
wow thats a great eval on tom johnson there fin. i thought he had a eyeopening game for coachs. i hope his injury don't hamper his chances. galette got some good work as well.

I think that it might've just been a muscle cramp, maybe on hamstring or calf muscle based on the way he limped off the field and because there hasn't been any official report of him suffering an injury.
Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

This is they type of story we had with Anthony Hargorve - I like this aacpect of our front office & they seem careful what reclamation projects they sign.

I can NEVER see us signing a TO or Randy Moss. (TO Isn't playing somehwere ... is he??)

I think Johnson is going to make the final 53. I believe he has a better chance of being on the final roster than Mitch King (no offense to Mitch King, who played against backups but looked good).

We will know more after this week's game at Reliant. But because we also play the Texans in week 3 of the regular season, I would not expect 3G to show his total hand in this game.

Probably... but very likely some other team is going to snatch him up, assuming he at least keep up the level of play he showed against SF.
