HOMESTEAD, Fla. —
Knaus, who opined Sunday night that if not for midseason rule changes in 2012 the team “would have waxed the competition,” believes the current crew he’s assembled around Johnson has yet to reach its full potential.
Johnson doesn’t dare dream of what other goals he might accomplish or where he’ll rank when it’s all said and done.
“It’s not like me to think in that light. It’s just not me,” Johnson said. “I guess I need to open my mind to it because the numbers speak for themselves. I find myself in a touchy situation at times where my quiet approach can be looked at as arrogant or cocky, and that is the furthest thing from the truth in what I’m trying to portray.
“I’m just trying to say the right things and keep my mind in the right space. I haven’t let a lot in, and it’s led to more success. It’s kept my work ethic intact, kept me honest and humble. I like that about myself. I really, really do. I don’t know if I want to open my mind and let it in, where I stand in the sports world. It’s not time for that in my eyes.”
