Q&A RB Priest Holmes

Dec 10, 2004, 2:55:29 PM


Q: Who made the decision to put you on the Injured Reserve list?

HOLMES: ďIt was a collective decision between the Chiefs, myself and the doctors knowing that we didnít have enough time left in this season for me to get healthy enough to be able to play. The main thing was to be able to play without a brace. For any hopes of coming back this season, it (the knee) would have had to be braced up and that also would be a situation that would put me at risk.Ē

Q: Was your injury worse than you originally thought and will you need postseason surgery?

HOLMES: ďThereís no surgery required for an MCL. Is it worse? I donít think itís worse, itís just taken a lot longer for the MCL to heal up. For the most part Iíve always been able to determine how long I would be out. This is a situation where it just takes a little longer.Ē

Q: At what point did you realize that the season was over for you?

HOLMES: ďIt wasnít necessarily a point in time that I could actually pinpoint. Each week we were going with the hopes of being able to come back this season. Right now we do know that itís going to take a little bit longer in order for me to heal up, and that time is going to be after January.Ē

Q: Do you have any feeling about playing long term given the fact you suffered season-ending injuries in 2002 and 2004?

HOLMES: ďItís a state of mind about how soon or how quickly youíll be able to return or how many injuries Iíve had. I think as far as being a football player, injuries have always been a part of this game and itís not going to change. Itís not going to change today or tomorrow. In terms of next year Iím excited because of the fact that it gives me an opportunity to heal up and start preparing for the 2005 season. There are a lot of things we need to do. We left a lot of things on the table this year. Weíre still playing, weíre still in it in terms of winning some games and making sure we end the season the right way. But the 2005 season is going to be exciting because we know that thereís a valuable lesson that we learned this year and that is that when you start having guys that go down it makes it really difficult to win ball games.Ē

Q: Will you play in 2005?

HOLMES: ďI can tell you one thing. This 2004 season I spoke my mind. I think it would have been unfair for me to go into the season with intentions, early on, about retirement this past year and not let everyone know. It wasnít something that needed to be kept behind closed doors. It was something that needed to be said publicly. Now whether or not that makes me look as if Iím not ready to play or wanting to play, thatís never been the case. This particular season that weíre getting ready to approach, Iím definitely 100 percent preparing to play.Ē

Q: Did sitting out and not being able to play remind you how important football is to you?

HOLMES: ďThe football has never left me. It never will and I donít think thereís anyway that it could. Itís a gift and something that I canít even control. Iíd have to say that itís not necessarily something you have to train for or a number of things, itís just a God-given talent. Iím able to weather the storm despite whatever is in front of me. Right now there is an injury, but it wasnít the injury that made me think that football is important. Football has always been important. The injury just gave me an opportunity to rest up and to get the body 100 percent. I think that the year before I played with the hip and this particular season I was fighting off the injuries after each game. I think when you become a marked person in the league Ė and Iím not going to say itís unfair, because anything that happens inside the white lines is fair Ė the same way I believe people have attempted to remove me from the game is the same way I would encourage our own defense to make sure we can remove anybody else that we can. Itís all fair inside the white lines. Iím really excited about this year thatís getting ready to come up. But we still have four more games to go and thereís still some work to be done here.Ē

Q: Will you be doing your rehab in Kansas City?

HOLMES: ďAll of my rehab will be done here for the remainder of this season. Then in the off-season I will travel between here and San Antonio. But most of my rehab, if not all, will be done here with (assistant trainer) Keith Abrams.Ē

Q: Did the Chiefs 4-8 record have anything to do with you ending your season?

HOLMES: ďThatís been the question. People have said, Ďif you were on a playoff run would they have kept you on?í Thatís not a decision I could make right now because I know whatís in front of us and that is that our season looks like itís going to end on January 2. So therefore for me to come back and attempt, not knowing what physical shape I would be in, to play that game may not be the best thing in terms of next year, and in terms of us becoming that team that we once were when we were 13-3.Ē

Q: Is this injury at all related to the last one that you had to this knee?

HOLMES: ďIíd have to say no. That injury was in Ď99 when I was in Baltimore. In terms of just being a running back a lot of people have said, ĎHow is it that you could come back from a hip, but itís taking you so long to come back from an MCL which typically you find guys coming back anywhere between four to six weeks?í For a running back itís a whole different animal, I think. The hip is one thing that you can hide while youíre running. Thereís ways to protect yourself, but with a knee injury itís a little bit different as a running back, I think.Ē

Q: Is the human knee made to play football?

HOLMES: ďLast year I think we had a number of hamstrings and this year itís been the knee injuries. A number of top guys have gone out like Shawn Barber and (Mike) Maslowski and itís also the same thing where these situations that you find yourself in circumstances in a game where youíre not prepared to deal with what happens once you get that knee injury. But I can tell you one thing, the human body does heal back.Ē

Q: Is the frustrating or disappointment with this injury any different then your other injuries?

HOLMES: ďI wouldnít necessarily say that everything that happened this year was for the worse. I think there are a number of positive things that you can look at with my injury. Theyíre all spin-offs to it. With the fact of me getting injured it gives us an opportunity to free up cap room. Thatís a positive. With that cap room itís going to make our 2005 season that much more challenging in terms of who all we intend to bring in. I donít know if we will bring in anybody, but I know thereís a number of guys here who have been working their butts in terms of make sure that theyíre secured. It just allows us that cap room to make sure that we can get the people here that can make this team much stronger.Ē

Q: Are you afraid people will one day look back on your career and think you had all these great seasons without winning a championship in Kansas City?


HOLMES: ďI think that the reason that you play is to win a championship. But you can never look back and say that we wasted a particular year or a particular individual. You can just look at each year and take it for what itís worth. Everybodyís out here trying very hard to make sure that we can win ball games. It means a lot, not only to ourselves and our families, but to all of our fans here. It is disappointing because you donít want to waste years and take four or five years for that opportunity to come. I think weíre going to do everything we can this particular off-season. Iím looking ahead because thatís the situation that Iím in right now. But we do have four more games. But the 2005 season is going to be a really good season.Ē

In general that interview had a lot of positive news. However, I hate the statement in bold. It tells me the mindset of the problem "is just injuries" is setting in and we may do little to nothing again.

A recipe for another disaster.

In isolation, I would agree that sentiment is concerning. However, if you read Gretz's article where they've already begun evaluating players, I really don't think the Chiefs will stand pat again. Will we get the major number of changes that many (or at least me) want.

I actully think our offense is better outside of the redzone with LJ and Blaylock in. But once we get inside the 20 we need Holmes. You could really see this is NO.

Although I must say...it may have been the play but LJ looked very Holmesish on his rushing TD. Outside sweep...he was patient...let the play and the blocking develop in front of him and made it happen...

Yep. I do agree he kicks both of their asses down near the goalline. Although I couldn't tell the difference between Priest and LJ on LJ's short TD run last week.

Priest is also better than either of them at turning nothing into something...

The best thing about all of this...next year Priest will be spelled by whomever the Chiefs keep on their roster. He won't be asked to do nearly as much.

Of course I'm betting the Chiefs resign Blaylock and trade LJ. Personally, I like LJ better.

I agree with this in the fact that Holmes has a thing for making huge gains out of nothing i.e. that Trent dump pass this year...I cant remember which game.

But...Priest gets stuffed alot. No doubt it is because of how many carries he gets but he still gets stopped up at the line or behind it quite a bit. The thing I like about LJ is he does not get stuffed as much. If something breaks down he is pretty good at finding 1, 2, or 3 yards out of a negative play or one that would usually end at the line of scrimmage.

Well to be honest, Priest kicks the butt of about 99% of the rest of the NFL backs in this category. We fans have been spoiled by his ungodly production in the red zone these past few years. Whoever has to follow Priest on this team will be unfairly critisized and scrutinized. It wouldnt be right to compare anyone to Priest because hes set the bar so high. Its like trying to follow Elway in Denver, Montana in Frisco, or Payton in Chicago. Everyone else is going to pale in comparison.

WTF is sig worthy about that shit? Yeah, Priest can take it for what it's worth, because he pocketed a ton of cash. People who watch the games on TV can take it for what it's worth, because they have nothing invested except their time. OTOH, most season ticket holders don't think a 4-8 season is worth the money they spent on tickets and parking. So sorry, Priest, I can't accept the shitty season that I'm watching for what it's worth. Because it ain't worth the money I invested. I'm not going to cancel my season tickets just because your jackass teammates fugged this season up, so instead I'm going to bitch about your bosses to anyone who cares to read this forum.

The truth is the Chiefs did spend money in the offseason. Hindsite is always 20/20 but they made the critical error of resigning their own free-agents. Such gems as Hicks/Woods/Bartee

Yeah Priest is making money, but to be fair he is investing his health now and a future of being healthy just to entertain us all. He could very well be in a lot of pain for a long time... and while fans continue to follow and spend money on the team 15 years from now, Priest might be a 45 year old guy with a bum hip that is a hassle to get out of bed with every morning because he stayed an extra 2 or 3 years to make the product the fans spend money on better. I think he has the right to place some value on what each season means. That's not to devalue the investment so many fans here make, but I personally would put my own health above money, but that's simply my opinion, I don't expect anyone to share it.

If Priest felt like his hip was going to be a problem down the road, he should have retired immediately after it. Not come back for one year and give us all false hope.

I also pay to stay in a Hotel when the Chiefs have night games. Yes I'm disapointed in the way this season has played out but I'm an adult and understand that things don't always go the way I want and in the case of the Chiefs I try to look at the big picture instead of acting like a brat who didn't get what he wanted for Christmas. The Chiefs didn't do some things I thought they could have done in the offseason but I certainly won't hold a grudge against them for it. The plan they employed hasn't worked out and I'm pretty sure that they're not happy with the results. I believe next year they will try to fix it. As far as taking a season for what it's worth. What's any season worth?

I'm glad to hear he's coming back, it goes without saying that we need him....now we (they) can focus on the defense

Of course I'm betting the Chiefs resign Blaylock and trade LJ. Personally, I like LJ better.


I think that has about a 5% chance of happening. With the needs on the defensive side of the ball and at WR, that's too much money to put into a backup RB. They'd take a cap and cash hit by resigning Blaylock and a cap hit by trading LJ.

I fully expect the Chiefs to let Blaylock walk and draft a RB to be 3rd on the roster.

I agree with this in the fact that Holmes has a thing for making huge gains out of nothing i.e. that Trent dump pass this year...I cant remember which game.

But...Priest gets stuffed alot. No doubt it is because of how many carries he gets but he still gets stopped up at the line or behind it quite a bit. The thing I like about LJ is he does not get stuffed as much. If something breaks down he is pretty good at finding 1, 2, or 3 yards out of a negative play or one that would usually end at the line of scrimmage.

This kid has 1 game of 100+ yards and you are talking about how LJ is better than Priest? LJ got stuffed quite a bit early on. Priest only gets stuffed when someone completely misses a block. If there is a tiny crack, Priest will get 2 or 3 yards. How many time did LJ trip over a blade of grass? LJ has talent and potential, but please don't the best RB in Chiefs history.

When you said this. If I'm reading it wrong, forgive me. But it sure sounds like you would prefer to play LJ over Priest. How do you read what you wrote:

For me it can't be measured in dollars. Cost and worth aren't the same thing though.

And to think Taco said he would retire , again !

Taco had the super secret Vegas insider tip that Gonzalez and Holmes were hurting in training camp and were likely to not start the opener.

As much as Taco cried about CP posters stating that TD was done he sure is consistent with his annual PH is done post. If he keeps posting them he will be right eventually. Then he will surely post how he correctly predicted it.

How does that make Holmes better than LJ that is just a small facet that I like about LJ compared to Priest...there are ALOT of things Holmes does better than LJ of course...you really took that small segment and ran with it...

OK I stand corrected. I read your quote incorrectly.
