There is little question David Johnson is his own harshest critic. As he was setting records a season again, the running back constantly talked about what he didn’t do right or what he needed to improve. To be fair, coach Bruce Arians did the same, but Johnson — with more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns — stuck it to himself often.
One example: Johnson noted his biggest weakness. “Mainly get better at pass protection. I definitely missed a lot of blocks … definitely hurt Carson (Palmer), got him sacked or made him rush the throw.”
Apparently, his wife Meghan — who had a role in the Amazon series “All or Nothing” — has “helped” him in that process.
“B.A. is hard on me, my wife is hard on me, everyone is hard on me,” Johnson said with a smile.
How is your wife hard on you?
“She’s always the one telling me I had a fumble, or I missed some catches,” Johnson said. “She’s learning. That’s what happened. She’s learning football, so now she’s able to talk to me about the plays I missed. We talk about it all the time.”
To be fair, Johnson said Meghan does praise him. “She’s my biggest supporter,” he said. “But she knows me. I’m always trying to see what I mess up on and she’ll let me know.”
