Did the chiefs add anybody to the team from the wavier wire and does anybody know if danny farmer was picked up yet.

Farmer was picked up by Cincy. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/frown.gif

Why not give farmer a chance with us only having 4 wide outs? Thanks for the info HC_chief.

Good pickup for the bungholes. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif

I was hoping we could nab him.
We really do need some help at Wr, but just don't see anybody out there.

Charlie Jones? Is that the best available?

Charlie Jones is being looked at by the Panthers FWIW.

The Bungles picked up a nice player, but at the expense of their "starter" opposite Warrick (some guy who had started their 3 preseason games). They now have 5 WRs on their roster (including 3 rookies) and they have a COMBINED 15 career NFL catches. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/confused.gif

I read a lot of teams are interested in jones. Shedd from raiders was cut also, he can play special teams also. I still have a feeling that the special teams will suffer this year not because of kickoffs but from poor coverage and stoyo's leg strength.

Seattle cut Glen Foley.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd prefer to have Foley over Collins! Glen actually looked decent in a few games for NYJ... and he was Parcells' favorite. (that counts for something in my book)

Glenn Foley...No Thank You!! Rather have a Billy Joe to be honest with ya over Glenn Foley.

mohawk, how again will our ST suffer because of Stoyo's lack of leg strength?

Cory, maybe you should fill Mohawk in.

Uh, mohawk - Stoyo isn't kicking the ball off this year....

None yet, and the practice squad is still a secret. I wonder how that impacts the Indy game. Joey Kent and Isaac Byrd both were cut by the Titans. I still think Shedd would be the best pickup, lets face it the 5th WR had best be a ST player. This damned CIA operation Gunther is running is starting to piss me off. Probably the only reason the practice is closed, is because him and the three stooges don't have a clue as to what to do in the Indy game. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif

Glenn Foley = 6 interceptions in a preseason game against Arizona. Is he really any better than what we've got?

I'm sure Mohawk meant leg-strength, as in FG limitations.

Has anyone signed Todd Peterson? He could easily replace Stoyo, who should have been given TC competition at least. Hope we score a bunch of TDs, cause Stoyo doesn't have it anymore.
