"I want to play for the Chiefs this year"

"My intention and desire is to play football"

Met with Carl and Herm an hour ago and talked about visting Dr. Watkins...has high expectations...sees no reason why he wouldn't be approved.

"If ya'll can give me a draw and a stretch play, that's all I need"

Barring his medical condition, what other items are there that could lead him not to play next season?

Money?

I dont think LJ would be too happy about giving up many of his carries.

And I think LJ wants to take on the NFL, but damn it sure would feel nice knowing we have Priest back to come in when LJ is winded or if he goes down.

Funny I said the same thing last year but just the opposite,

I love it. Let him say he wants 1500 yards.

If Priest comes back and acts like he wants the ball, LJ will run like a maniacal wilderbeast on meth.

First thing Herm did when he got signed was that LJ was the #1 RB. There will be no controversy.

You're right about that, Mr. BSPimpDude. But, surely there's little if any danger of that at running back.

Herm has stated that LJ is the starter. And, I'm certain that, if Priest returns, he knows that he will be a role player, given his health. However, anything that lights up LJ is alright with me. Including competitive pressure from Priest at the RB position.

huge difference in have a position controversy when you are not sure whether you have a guy that's good enough and our situation where you got 2 guys that have shown they can be studly.


no such thing as too many great players

priest was talking out of both sides of his mouth...the guy can not just answer a question...he said 13 different times, "I'm definetly coming back........maybe"

I got sick of listening to him. He can back up LJ if he wants but he isn't getting a 1000 yards...he made a joke at one point about insurance policies paying well - he was talking about his contract and making it clear he wasn't going to retire while getting paid...Shiteman laughed hysterically...because it was the only honest thing he said, imho...

What is Priest supposed to say? I mean, seriously?

They ask him questions like, "So, do you want to come back?" about fifty times in every interview since he was injured. So, he says, "Yeah. I definately want to come back." Then they ask, "So are you coming back, then?", and Priest says, "Maybe ... it depends on the doctors."

If that's doubletalk, I must be missing something. Also, who wouldn't want to get their full contract value? Injury or no injury. I think we can all agree that CP will be looking for every possible angle to reduce any compensatory liability the team might have with Priest. Is he supposed to go along with whatever Carl wants to do?

Priest has been a great player for us. A huge and very welcome surprise. I'd take 1 Priest over 90 Shitemans or whatever his name is.

Well he said he will be in river falls even if he isnt cleared to play just yet. He will be doing individual work outs. He also said, that there is ver very high chance of him bieng cleared. He was bieng as honest as he possibly could. I thought it was a very good interview, thats more thenw e heard out of him since he went down.

If you had to choose between LJ getting 2000 or LJ getting 1000 and Preist getting 1000, what would you choose? Personally, I'd love to see the latter, as LJ will be more fresh for our playoff games/Super Bowl.

I would hope that Priest would be content with being a role player, like Faulk. He's not going to break rushing records....he's not going to break the TD record again...But he could definitely help LJ. The one thing that would top his career is a SB in a strong role.

Hopefully, he will contribute leadership to the team. I think that he's got the character to do it, but we'll see.

We do need a stud a back-up. LJ pulled himself out on a key 3rd down vs. Denver in the 4th quarter because he wwas tired. If we didn't have such a strong D that held Denver that would have cost us the game.

It would also help to have Priest on the Goal line and blocking in 3rd and longs.

Excellent post. Having a healthy PH on this team is a plus-no matter what anyone else has against the guy. I like Priest and have grown quite tired of all the bashing. He gives a defense a lot to think about when he is in there. He has always been a great recieving threat-and teamed with LJ gives us an unstopable running game. In the KC Star article today-he said he will be back.

This is great news!!

I would love to see us give the ball to Priest when we are inside the 5 yard line. LJ ought to be scoring TDs from 10 yards out (at least) on a regular basis, so he can build up his stats while still allowing Priest to have runs inside the 5 yard line. If we play him in this way, I think Priest can still be the best goal line RB in the league.

There are no guarantees, that said, I'll be the last person here to understimate Priest Holmes, regardless of injury.

Who do you want to see inside the 5 yrd line? No question if he's cleared to play that Priest is a beast down along the goal line.

No sh*t dude, that was the turning point of our season. Its also something that's been largely overlooked in the LJ hype. If he can't block, then we won't leave him in on passing downs. If teams see that we take him out of the game, they know we're going to pass. Its called a syllogism (and I like that word!).

I don't know about that, RB isn't like the QB spot. As long as the OL does it job out there blocking, it doesn't matter.

The RB is very important, but he isn't the leader on the field.

Heh, no. But can you name a block that Priest missed as badly or at as crucial a time as that one? I can't. No player is perfect and they all make mistakes. However....

Priest = very good blocker
LJ = not terrible blocker, but not real good yet

I heard on the radio a few weeks ago, that LJ stated that he wanted to get really good at blocking. Maybe he was just trying to say the "right" thing, but I'm thinking that the guy really wants to be at the top in all phases of the game.

I also think that humans are nothing more than the cross breeding of aliens and a variety of chimps, monkeys and apes. So I don't put much stock into anything I think.

We gave away the game. Leave LJ in as a decoy and to block...
Give him the ball with TRich infront 1:30 to go.

Can you name a situation where Saunders passed the ball on that down from that distance when Priest was in the game? I can't.

He always got the opportunity to get the glory, and often succeeded. Though LJ did the same, he didn't get the same kind of opportunity. No, instead he was asked to block a wreckless blitzing linebacker inside the opponents' 10-yard line.

Well, I can't recall Saunders ever passing a ball. :D

Ok, seriously, the Seattle game in 2002 comes to mind. But I don't recall the exact down and distance or score situation.

Look, LJ missed the block, period. Don't make excuses for him. Don't get me wrong, I definitely think LJ is our workhorse back and should be in there at all times unless he's tired. But that missed block illustrates the point that LJ needs to improve his blocking.

As for Priest, he has been in several situations like that through the years and he gets his block most of the time.

And I was bitching about Saunders calling that play. As good as AS was as the Chiefs OC, he still would try to get too cute sometimes. That time, it cost the Chiefs a game.

Also, the year before they did the exact same play that worked for 6. This time Coleman said he knew it was comming when he recognized the same formation, so he just waited for it. so, the end result Pic-6 from 100plus yards.
