THE GOOD Josh Johnson exists somewhere in that gray area between first and second string.  He struggled as a starter in 2009—throwing to Michael Clayton and a gimpy Antonio Bryant—and didn’t do much to dissuade Josh Freeman’s ascendancy, but in the preseason, he’s been an athletic, reckless, yardage-eating dynamo.  The Chiefs didn’t have an answer… Read More
