would you trade Priest Holmes for some good quality draft picks or some stud defensive players. It may sound a little crazy, but, I don't see why not, since our offense can move tha ball without him. I figure a Priest Holmes loss, would mean your offense sacrificing 100-150yds per game and 2-3 tds. That's pretty much what he is. And in turn, if LJ can prove he's worthy of a 1st rd pick, the Chiefs may be on to something here. I say play LJ the rest of the year. He looked very very very good today.

Kneejerk reaction=stupid.

Although, it depends on how well Larry Johnson does. I think today was a clear indication of what we SHOULD do next week, Start LJ.

I doubt Priest Holmes would fetch much of anything. I think he's gonna retire anyway - especially if traded.

Priest doesn't have the trade value that we would wnat out of him. His age is a factor and the injury this season. I feel a little more comfortable with LJ if priest went down next year or retired now. He can make plays when given a chance.

Not necassarily true. Look at the years he's had and the numbers he's put up. The guys arguably the best RB the game has to offer over the last 4 years. Just look at the stats, 5,492yds, 70tds. That an average of 1373yds rushing a season, and 17tds a season. Nobody in this league comes close to that. The numbers he's put up here, can make a point and back up to why he's tradable. The only concern in his trade value, I think, is, age, and his nagging injuries in the past. Aside from that, we can get something for Priest if we decided to trade him.

Believe it or not I agree. Next week would be decent test as Tennessee has a pretty stalwart defense.

Why not? For some stud defensive players heck yes. Gimme Priest for Zach Thomas straight up. Do it in a second. One for one.

They have sucked on offense like we suck on defense. It is really kind of the reverse scenario as ours IMO.

i heard teams were interested, but his attitude has brought down trade value. GM's everyone were saying "Eating nacho's at a game? Not on my team"

People forget there missing there best player, there captain that is, Steve McNair. Sure it's easy to write off there offense.

yeah I know. He hasn't played with them all year. Been banged up all year. Give McNair a full healthy season, and I don't think there offense is that bad.

Tell me who would give us a fair amount in return for a 30+ year old, beat up, running back with a nice amount of years/money left on his contract? No one.

Despite the euphoria on the board about LJ's success today, we probably should remember the Fade have one of the worst run defenses in the league. Gaz told me we probably should give the situation a larger sample size. Let's give LJ lots of carries over the remaining games this season before we start talking about what this thread is about.

Never have. but, I'd love to cause even the best make mistakes too. They never played the guy, cause they never trusted him. And, finally they decided to play him out of a 3-8 record with nothing to lose and Blaylock banged up. That's what it took for them to play LJ and he came out with a good performance. Sometimes you gotta take chances man. Now, is he Priest Holmes no. Can he do some of the things Priest Holmes can do, probably not. I know it's only 1 game, He's still gotta lot of football left to be played. There's 4 games left to be played, say LJ gets 100yds a game, and scores an average of 2 tds a game. I think a lot of people on here will be discussing about it, and possibly trading Priest. Dont forget, We NEED defense. It still has a very very very long ways to go :shake: So, if that means trading Priest for some good quality defensive players, and if LJ can prove he's the back that came out of Penn state. Then I say do it, that's all I'm saying. I don't care if I'm bashed. And, if I have to eat some crow I will.

My theory is you never trade a superstar unless they are well past their usefuness. It just rarely works out where you get any real value in the trade.

Priest means too much to the Chiefs, IMO he is the greatest play ever to wear a Chiefs uniform.
