Trying to find out what Chiefs fan's opinion is on Holmes.

Undecided but hopeful...




I haven't seen him run enough to really get a good feel on him. Of course, if he HAD produced stellar numbers we WOULD have, and he wouldn't have been a back up....





Stranger things have happened than a Chief gett'n 1,000 yrds rushing, just not lately...

I have seen Preist alot........(have a personal friend who plays for baltimore....so i watched all of their games on directv last season).......he is extremely tough.......runs tough....always delivers the blow......doesnt fumble.......i was really suprised to hear that he is only 205 because he runs like he is 235.......also, dont ever remember them throwing to him, so ill take vd's word on his hands.

i am extremely happy that he is a chief.......now if my buddy can get to kc, i can get the cool players family tickets to chiefs games.....lol

I know practiculy nothing about this guy. Other than the fact that he played for the Ravens. Wasn't he a backup? But then again if he gains 1000 yrds. it will be a monumental moment in Chiefs history. SINCE IT'S BEEN SO FVCKING LONG SINCE WE HAD ONE!! Sorry.... Got carried away for a moment :D

Just from what I have read, this guy is a HUGE asset to the Chiefs. When he got hurt and Lewis took over it was sort of like Warner and Trent Green. Look at his stats. Before he lost his starting position his numbers were huge. My favorite saying....
CHIEFS RULE~ LET'S GO CHIEFS~

I voted in the undecided category, but was tempted to vote in the positive one. Remember, the Raven offense has not been that great for years, and gaining 1000 is somewhat of an accomplishment. However, as is the case of many positions, I have adopted a wait and see attitude.

My vision is that Priest will score two rushing TDs per game.
My vision also includes 1 TD each from Defense and ST per game, at least 2 Passing TDs per game minimum. There also will be 2 to three TDs per game from other runners and recievers.. so lets see.. 42 points per game minimum. I like my vision.

He will do just fine, it's the D that has me concerned at this point, but there is still plenty of time before opening day.

I know that many of you will disagree, but I feel like the combo of both TRich and Holmes in the backfield "could" be more potent than Faulk/Holcombe combo. Tony is good enough to do the job himself, then you add a guy like Holmes... devistating one-two punch, IMO. They both catch the ball well, and when they get in the open...watch out. Tony is the bruiser inside and Holmes the shifty guy who can break it to the outside. They will have a tough time predicting what to defend simply by the personel on the field.



The only problem with this vision is that DV has said a few times that he will use a one back set quite often. I'm not sold on this aspect yet, especially when it comes to Holmes. I watched him a few times during that 1,000 yard season and he looked pretty good, but good enough to carry the ball 20+ times a game? I wonder.

My vote is a wait and see...

I am very happy with Holmes. Think he is a much better pick up than the Raida's got with Garner. Tough, quick and can catch the ball...sounds like a fit to me. May not be a pro bowler, but for a FA pick up I think it was a great move.

My only question is his durability...a bit on the small side, I wonder if he gets 20 touches a game, will he be able to take it?

I've gotta think any back in the Raven offense, especially before Billichek took over, that ran for 1000 yds has to be pretty good. Then with Lewis taking over last year, he just didn't get the carries. That, and in the Ravens offense, he just didn't fit.

So far, it sounds to me, as if this offense is tailor-made for a back like Holmes. Apparently, he seemed to think the same thing...because he could've signed elsewhere earlier...but waited on KC.

We will see; but I am hopeful of a 1000/500 yd season for rushing/receiving. With T-Rich in the same backfield, I really do think that this backfield COULD be at least as productive as the Rams. Maybe that's wishful thinking, but I really see it!

I like Holmes, and when I knew he'd be a free agent, I was hoping the Chiefs would consider him. With him and Richardson pounding away we should see a one-two punch close to what we enjoyed several years back with Word and Okoye. I'm talking about actual GOOD and CONSISTENT production when I make that comparison.

I was wanting Garner in a bad way, and I wasn't concerned about his light frame, because he proved to be durable. I'm glad we got a back like Holmes, and like Lamar Smith of Miami, he could turn out to be a real steal.

I think Holmes will be a good fit...

Good speed, although a little small. What excites me is the way he catches the football, and his elusiveness.

Now, what to do with the defense????

I believe Holmes will be an excellent RB for the Chiefs. I would like to see him put on 3 to 5 lbs. of muscle, but he should be effective for the Chiefs. The Chiefs' offense should be good. I am worried about the CBs and LBs.

I was <b>REALLY</b> unhappy with the Holmes pick-up. I've been watching the Raven's play (not by choice mind you) since 1997 and I've seen Priest Holmes lose the starting position 3 times.

Yeah, he put up some numbers.

I still don't like him. I don't think he's everything he's made out to be. Call it a hunch, there's nothing concrete I can point to, but I imagine I've seen him more than you guys have just because of where I live.


I <b>hope</b> I'm wrong.

...when the next minicamp takes place? The reports from HC on last weekends minicamp had me jazzed.

Holmes is a good RB, but I question if he can carry the full-load. If he can, let the Priest exorcise those demons in the AFC West.

Hey...I guess I did pretty well with my first post. Unfortunately I underestimated him!

No SH*t...stumbled right into the Chiefs hands. If I remember correctly, everyone wanted Garner. Go figure!!!!!

No shit?

Can I have your autograph? :D

Too bad it's too late to get one from the other Brandon Lee. What a tragic waste.

I'm pleased with the signing. I think he'll do excellent. I'll even go as far as saying he'll lead the league in rushing. I like him better than Garner.

I just hope he doesn't injure his hip. It is conceivable that we won't have much of an offense without him. :rolleyes:

T-Rich should be getting the carries! The Holmes signing was a waste! Let's dump this bum, we were 8-8 last year!
