Eddie Johnson, Good Game or Bad Game?

It’s always easy to look at a player and think this person had a “good game” or this guy had a “bad game”. It’s rarely said that they just played. This is kind of how I feel about Eddie Johnson. He showed energy at times, though, admittedly I didn’t have an opportunity to watch it fully. Other life responsibilities and being an adult sometimes keep you from fully enjoying your hobbies. I also saw other comments that felt he passed up opportunities to add pressure in attempts to retrieve the ball in the attacking third.

The thing about EJ is that he’s sure to have some exciting moments but ultimately, tonight, he came up short. So how do you grade Eddie Johnson tonight? By the result, the context, the performance and effort? What makes him have a good game or bad game tonight? How do you think he did, let’s hear your opinions in the comments below.
