...at least for the rest of this year? When he was injured they said it was suppossed to be a week or two..then more...now another couple of weeks more. I know, they said it's hard to tell how long it will take an MCL partial tear to heal...but why did they originally say one or two weeks if that's really the case?

When he hurt his hip we were told he'd be right back and of course he didn't come back until the next season. I have a sneaking suspicion that we're not being told the whole truth again.

Whether he's injured worse than they thought, or they're just sitting him since we're out of the playoff race and giving time to Blaylock and Johnson to see what they have for next year... I don't know... but I feel like we're being left out again... Maybe they're afraid we won't pay $20 to park and fill the stadium and buy $8 beers and $4 bottled waters if we know we're not gonna see our best player...???

It's probably another vast right-wing conspiracy.

Let him score 8 touchdowns against Denver and then let him rest for the rest of the year. Actually I would just rest him for next year, which is an odd year, AFC West Champion lose in first playoff game at Arrowhead year.

Let him sit. The playoff picture is through and he doesn't have a chance of getting his personal goals now that he has missed several games (Well, I think it is highly unlikely). Let him recover and hopefully he has a bit of drive to come back and try to earn his own SB Ring.

By not letting out whether he will play it will always keep the opposition guessing.

I would rather him sit out for the rest of the year and be 100% next year. From what I'm seeing this year is a bust and why risk further or more serious injury when we have nothing to gain.

If he needs surgery to repair the minor tear, I'd go for that now. With the work ethic that Priest has, he will be working out far in advance of the rest of the team getting ready for the next season. By then we should have addressed the defensive side of the line.

For those of you that are calling for DV and CP to be fired. Go suck a brick. Do you not remember what the Chiefs were like before CP came to town? 16 years of football that could have been challenged by most college teams and some high school teams. CP may not be perfect, but what he brought was respectability to the Chiefs, something that had been missing for many years.

I still believe in the system.

If he doesn't need surgery, it'd sure be nice to see him back, as much from a team confidence viewpoint as from a production viewpoint.

If he needs surgery, then he should obviously sit out the rest of the season and come back strong next year when we make our Super Bowl run.

I'd bet that most good GM's could have come to KC and could have produced better on the field talent and wins than CP has since '98. But a GM's job is also about filling the stands and that' why CP is still in charge. So, in a way, he is the best GM in the NFL to still have a job with his poor track record.

Check out the combined w/l record from 1972-1988. Then check out the record from 1989-2004 (assume we lose the remaining games of the season). From '72-'88 we had no hope of winning games. Currently we always have a chance, is CP responsible for the guys on the field not getting the job done? Has your wife ever been almost pregnant? It's the same thing. In my opinion you can go nlm yourself.

I'd say 30+ years as a season ticket holder entitles you to have any opinion you like and although I respect your opinion of still believing in the system I do not agree with it.

As for the numbers of wins under Carl etc.,so what,not winning a Superbowl is still not winning a Superbowl be it by way of sucking during the regular season or sucking during the play-offs.

So talk about respectability all you want,the last time I checked the ultimate respect in this game is hoisting the Lombardi trophy,something KC hasn't done in 30+ years no matter who in the hell was GM.

I say let him sit the rest of the year. No point in aggravating ANY injuries or risking a career ending injury in the remaining games this season. Plus, since we play 4 more division games this season, you know some sick bronco or raider will be gunning for his hip or anywhere else he may be vunerable simply so they dont have to face him next year.

Let him sit. I say give LJ the ball the for the Raider game. Use it as a confidence booster. I think he has more potential then Blaylock but just needs the reps. We need a backup for Priest because I think that next season will be his last season regardless.

How many teams in the NFL have even been to the Superbowl? I know the goal of every team is to get there. KC has been there, there are teams that haven't even been close.

If you would rather have the GM from, like say N.O., would you be any better off? If you got the GM from San Diego, would you be any better off? (Remember, we had Shottenheimer and got close, but his mantra is to go limp in the playoffs.) What GM would do a better job? The facts are that CP has given the Chiefs the respectability that we couldn't even spell during the 16 years of darkness.

Is CP doing as good as a job as he could? None of us think so, but there isn't anyone on the bb that knows what the guidelines he has to work by to do his job. Anyone care to give it a guess?

We can fight the system all you want, but we don't even know what that system is. We are all babies crying for mama's milk (Lombardi Trophy) and we can't do a thing about it until mama uncovers her tit. Doesn't matter how loud we cry we have no control over when she pulls up the shirt!!

If I remember correctly he was going to retire, not because of football, but because his dad was going to Iraq and he wanted to be there for his family.

I'd almost put money on him being around for another year, and if that year is good (SB win) he will retire. If no SB, he might stay around for a little longer.

http://www.atlantafalcons.com/team/006/472/

In general, the NFL has ruled that a signing bonus is given to the player in return for his pledge to play for that team. And just as a team gets penalized if it breaks its promise (by releasing, trading, etc…) to allow a player be on its roster, so are players who break their promise to play (by retiring with years remaining on their contracts) forced to pay back whatever prorated portion of their signing bonus remains.

Simply put, if a player retires with years left on his contract, he owes the team the prorated signing bonus from the remaining years on his contract.

I don't think it has anything to do with the defense. This time it's about his body, family, and he's been paid.

I say it has to do w/the D b/c I think he would like to win a SB ring (having one as a backup is a bit different, IMO).

I can't say much about his body or family, but I think that a player who retires early has to pay back a prorated share of the signing bonus. I remember there was a big fuss about whether Barry Sanders would have to repay his, and he ended up having to pay back a pretty good chunk of it.

Of course, I could be wrong. But it doesn't seem to me to be very good business sense to sign a player to a longterm contract and give him a huge SB if he could just retire the next year and keep it all.

Then again, we ARE talking about Carl Peterson. :cuss:

Soooo...

We should praise Carl for bringing Marty here and respectability back to the organization, BUT we wouldn't want San Diego's GM because although Marty has them headed towards the playoffs, he is a known post-season choker. I don't get it?
I take it you are confused. I can understand that after reading some of your posts.

What I'm saying is that we would be no better off with a new GM and a new HC. Same stuff, different guys.

You could go out and hire the guys that have the "track record" of being the best and once signed to be in KC might be much the same as CP or DV. Basically what you and everyone else seems to want is a pipe dream.

What has to happen is that KC needs to determine that they want the SuperBowl trophy again and untie the hands of those that could go get the personnel to get it done.

Or you can go on bitching about CP until the new guy comes in, give him two years and you will be bitching about him too. It's a no win situation.

They say KC has the best fans in the league.......I'd say they are wrong, we are all a bunch of bandwaggoners that whine about everything that we don't like. You can argue that point, but you can't win it.

I think he will return, if he doesn't that will suck but I won't shit major bricks. We got 2 good rb's who are auditioning now, atleast priest will have plenty of time to rest and may start next season in less or no pain. Hell if we get a playmaker or 2 on O and some on D we may not have to use him 35 plus times a game. Some hits he took this year were horrid.

...at least for the rest of this year? When he was injured they said it was suppossed to be a week or two..then more...now another couple of weeks more. I know, they said it's hard to tell how long it will take an MCL partial tear to heal...but why did they originally say one or two weeks if that's really the case?

When he hurt his hip we were told he'd be right back and of course he didn't come back until the next season. I have a sneaking suspicion that we're not being told the whole truth again.

Whether he's injured worse than they thought, or they're just sitting him since we're out of the playoff race and giving time to Blaylock and Johnson to see what they have for next year... I don't know... but I feel like we're being left out again... Maybe they're afraid we won't pay $20 to park and fill the stadium and buy $8 beers and $4 bottled waters if we know we're not gonna see our best player...???

It's probably another vast right-wing conspiracy.

:p

Dave Stewart reported yesterday that PH is getting the advice from friends on the team on whether to return or not. The Chiefs are allowing him to make the decision based on what he WANTS to do and not on what he feels he can do.

I agreed with you up to that statement. A bandwagoner follows a team only when they are doing well. Almost everyone on this board follows the Chiefs during the bad times.

Whining is just being a fan.

A noob coming in here calling us bandwaggoners? :mad:

What do you hope to accomplish? Why come here and post these comments?:hmmm:

I had the same problem when I first joined the board. I couldn't believe all the bitching, I never considered anybody here a bandwagoneer, though. Now I'm used to all the bitching, it's just the way CP is.

PH can't retire! Somebody needs to give him a call and convince him to stay! I nominate FAX. FAX, tell him we'll do everything we can to improve the D! We'll get some WR's that can catch the ball more consistently. We'll keep Tony and Dante and the O line. Tell him a poem, buy him some nocho's. Do anything you can to make him stay.

I'll be happy to employ the internationally respected FAX persuasion skills in this case, but it won't matter. Priest will be back next year. We should all stop worrying about Priest and figure out how to get a defense that could stop splooge.

Take public transportation to the games or, car pool to the game with other planeteers. Surely Missouri has park and rides and if they don't, Wal Mart would be happy to assist with vacant parking lot space.

Fuggin use your heads. There is no way on Gods earth I would ever pay some organization 20 bucks to park my POS for 3 hours.

As far as the ticket prices go, I can't help you with that.

The Beer thing is easily solved. Car pool with someone who won't drink and liquor up prior to the game, maybe sip one beer through the game to keep your buzz going, then drown your miseries thouroughly afterward.

If you are liquored up, you won't need "Priest Nachos".

Now there's an Idea for a new menu item. Regular Nachos, Super Nachos, and then the ultimate, with everyting on it: PRIEST NACHOS>

I honestly think Priest will retire this offseason. I would be surprised if he doesn't.

That would explain the WTF attitude about munching on those Nachos. Not a good thing to eat for an NFL athlete.
