Kershaw also had an interception, a forced fumble and two passes defensed. He started all 10 games as a senior, finishing third on the club with 76 tackles (34 solo). He was a two-year starter at Hoke County High School in Raeford, North Carolina.

Printers played three seasons in the Canadian Football League with the British Columbia Lions, appearing in 45 games. He completed 457 of 712 passes for 6,763 yards with 45 touchdowns and 16 interceptions to go with 122 rushes for 849 yards (7.0 avg.) and 10 TDs. The DeSoto, Texas native was the named the CFL Most Outstanding Player in 2004 when he connected on 325 of 494 passes for 5,088 yards with a league-high 35 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

No Dunn for the playoffs. That's really going to hurt our SB chances.

Does ANYONE know what Scanlon did to his neck to land him on IR? Was it team related - never announced anything about it, other than he hurt his neck..?

You try holding the world on your shoulders like that and see how your neck feels.

He hurt his neck during one of his weekly oral sex sessions with Carl Peterson. Without it, Carl would have cut him long ago.

Without really knowing the severity of the injuries to Dunn and Turley it makes me wonder if the Chiefs brass is/was counting on NOT making the playoffs and just wanted to give a couple of other guys a "shot" (yeah right) and promoted them. I cant help but wonder if we had already clinched a spot in the playoffs if they would have IR'd Dunn or not. Oh well, doesnt matter now.

We don't usually pay much attention to taxi squad players.
