Boerigter having strong training camp

By ADAM TEICHER

The Kansas City Star

RIVER FALLS, Wis. _ After missing last season because of a knee injury, wide receiver Marc Boerigter is quietly having a strong training camp.

“I’m still shaking off some rust but it’s going as well as I could expect,’’ Boerigter said. “It’s coming back fairly quickly. Catching the ball, I’m not rusty at all. I’m just having to train my body back into some of these movements.’’

That’s good news for the Chiefs, who are looking for receivers to claim some available playing time. Boerigter is a prime candidate.

He missed all of the off-season practices because of knee rehabilitation, making a strong return to camp even more important. Boerigter has practiced only once each day, which he said was more precautionary than anything.

“It’s kind of up to me,’’ he said. “There’s no reason for going one a day because my knee is healthy. They’re looking at saving the wear and tear. I feel pretty good doing it this way. I’d hate to do a ton of two-a-days and then have a setback or something and have to take a couple of days off.

“Eventually, I’ll go to two practices a day.’’

The Chiefs took today off fro

m practice. Camp resumes Friday with morning and afternoon workouts.




Imo, if Bo can stay healthy, he'll win the starting WR spot. Parker would make for a good slot receiver.

Until he can practice all the time, he's not having a strong camp.

He's having a strong HALF of camp.

Bo would be a better Slot reciever.

Parker is better suited for the quick slants and timing routes Morton ran. And when you look back, Bo's hands weren't all that impressive either...

Bo's hands were fine his first year here. His second year he had an eye problem, which led to all the drops. That's been corrected.

I do hope this is true, but I really expected him to be shown as an overachiever who didn't have the athletic talent to make up for the injury.

IMO, his biggest Loss to the team wasn't recieving the ball....it was Gunning on Punts where he was sorely missed.

Ill never forget that outstanding 99 yard TD catch and run he made in 2002 against the Chargers. Id love to see more stuff like that out of him obviously, but im not 100% sold on him yet. Im sure the coaches would throw the ball his way more if they trusted his hands......At this point, if he makes the team, great....if not, then i have to trust the coaches that he just wasnt consistant enough.

i've heard him say that the vision thing didn't affect his play several times...

and i've also read quite a few times that he did have some sort of corrective eye surgery or something (but, again, he said at the time that the vision thing was never a problem for him and was no excuse for his sophmore performance)...

i think bo has an advantage in the wr roster hunt because of his strong special teams play...

at least i hope so... :) :) :)

There wasn't any real context or concreteness to it.

The host said something about the eyes, and Bo said something to the effect of "oh, that eye thing was bogus."

All the drops? The reason Bo's numbers were down that year was because Dante played the #3 WR position for the most part and the ball was being thrown to him instead of Bo. I look for Bo to make the team and he'll be the lone WR when we go to our 3 TE set. He's an excellent blocker and a decent big play threat in the passing game. We'll have 3 TEs on the field and a 220 pound WR to all block for Homes or LJ and teams will have to have their run D on the field. Of course will shift from a running formation into a spread with Gonzo, Wilson and Bo and we'll have mismatches galore.

Gonzo, Wilson, and Bo in the red zone will be tough to stop. That and special teams should make Bo a game day regular as 3rd or 4th WR. Good special teams play along with 30 catches and 5 TDs would hardly surprise if he's anywhere close to pre injury form.

That was actually the word talked about quite a bit from the talking heads at TC last year. Of course, htismaqe said up on post 9 hearing that Bo debunked it...

He's having a strong HALF of camp.

Which means he is light years ahead of Freddie Mitchell at this point.

Fred-Ex better get it together, or Boerigter will push him out of the starting lineup, and John Booth will push him off the team.

if it was so bogus then why the surgery?


sounds like Bo is just trying to not sound like he's making excuses to me.


imo a professional athlete doesn't risk his entire career by have lasik surgery unless there's a real issue.

Did he actually have surgery for it? I thought it was just a thing where they had him wear a contact in one eye, or something like that. Of course, it's been a while...

hmmm ... well i thought he had lazik's surgery to reduce a double vision issue.


i'm not positive though

Chiefs receiver looks to rebound

Chiefs' Boerigter not using vision problem as excuse for off year

By Rick Dean
Morris News Service

Marc Boerigter doesn't offer any excuses, and it bothers him that people are trying to find one for the sophomore slump he battled during his second NFL season with the Kansas City Chiefs last year.

Yes, Boerigter admits, it's true that he has a slight vision problem in his right eye. And yes, he will wear one corrective contact lens this season in an attempt to address the situation.

But no, he insists, there's no way he can attribute his dramatic drop-off in production last year or his maddening struggle to catch the ball to something as simple as vision-related depth perception.

"I've always had one eye that wasn't as strong as the other, so this is nothing new," said Boerigter, who wore glasses until abandoning them in college. "It's something we'll try to address, but to say that's the source of the problem, I don't think any of us know.

"But right now, I'll try anything to get this corrected."

"This" refers to Boerigter's decline from an impact-making 20-catch, eight-touchdown season in his 2002 rookie campaign to a mere 11-catch, no-score second year that was a big disappointment to Boerigter and his growing legion of fans.

A small-town kid from Hastings, Neb., who starred on the NAIA level at tiny Hastings College, Boerigter spent two productive years in the Canadian Football League before becoming the feel-good story of 2002.

But when he had almost as many drops as catches in '03, the Chiefs popular No. 4 receiver and special teams standout went searching for an explanation.

The one he found involves a lack of proper focus and concentration on an incoming pass more than his ability to see it. His proposed solution involves catching extra balls in practice and paying extra attention to detail. The simple use of a corrective lens is merely incidental.

"(Vision) obviously can be a factor, but I don't think it's the factor," Boerigter said. "I'll spend the offseason working with the one lens and see if it helps."

It's funny, people on this board really liked him at the time. He wasn't super fast, but at least he caught the ball and was physical.

His mother works in my organization in Maryville. She said he went to Canada and played football for a couple years. He then decided to come back to MO and sell Insurance.

He is a good kid.
