According to him, the NFL had a great opportunity to bring back the famous 90s rivalry between them. Moreover, they also had a great story regarding Damar Hamlin’s injury.

It is worth noting that the Bills lost against the Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round. As for the Cowboys, they lost against the 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round.

He also talked about the whole Jerry Jones picture controversy as well. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones being called out for his racial picture back in the civil rights movement during Black History Month… They really gave all that up… to settle for Andy Reid going against his former team and the Kelce brothers and Patrick Mahomes playing in State Farm being a State Farm ambassador,” Johnson further stated.

In the caption of his post, he said that they should have written a better script. Notably, Johnson started his career with the Chiefs back in 2003 and he played with them for 6 years. In 2011, he ended his NFL career with the Dolphins. In recent times, his social media activities have become really weird. According to him, everything is Illuminati related and reality is not what it seems.
