kcchiefs.com: Q&A with Boomer (4/29)...

Q&A LB JAMES "BOOMER" GRIGSBY
Apr 29, 2005, 4:32:46 PM

Q: Do you like the intensity of Kansas Cityís defensive coaches?

GRIGSBY: ďDefinitely. Thatís the best way to respond when you have someone all over your tail. I like a go-after-it coach a lot better than a passive one, although Iíll respond either way. Weíve got some of the best coaches in football here.Ē

Q: Youíve already got one nickname, do you think youíll get another one?

GRIGSBY: ďNo one owes me anything. I still havenít contributed to this football team. As of right now, I havenít done anything except wear number 95 and run around on this practice field. Until I contribute, they can call me anything they want.Ē

Q: What do you think you showed the Chiefs today?

GRIGSBY: ďIíd like to think that I showed them that I could learn the system a little bit. I think I know how to call a front. Iím not really sure yet on how to fit right, but itís going to come in time and Iím going to be up here all summer working all day.

Q: Are you fine wearing number 95?

GRIGSBY: ďIím a Kansas City Chief. Iím fine with whatever number they give me.Ē

Q: Does the playbook seem overwhelming or do you have a grasp of everything?

GRIGSBY: ďThe playbook is like a Bible and I havenít even read the first five pages. Iíve got a long way to go. Iíll be spending a lot of time up here this summer and Iíve got great coaches. Thereís a long way to go, but I think it will be entertaining.Ē

Q: Would you describe your style as ďhigh energyĒ?

GRIGSBY: ďLike I said, Iím excited to be here and itís still a little surreal. But you have to get over it and realize that youíre attempting to be on the same level as all these players who are already here. I am far from saying that I have arrived and very far from being one (an NFL player). I just have to get past saying, Ďwow, thatís Priest Holmes and thatís Coach Vermeilí and just play football.Ē

Q: Have you gotten over the excitement of being drafted?

GRIGSBY: ďNo, Iíll be excited until itís over with. Itís a great opportunity and Iím looking forward to it.Ē

Q: What do you want to accomplish during this rookie camp?

GRIGSBY: ďI expect to show them that I can run a little bit and that I can hustle and that Iím capable of learning the defense. The one thing that Iíve gathered already is that the NFL has tons of great players. But if it was all about talent and physical ability a lot more people would be here, but you have to learn to grasp the system. Thatís the main thing. Iím here to learn the system. If you donít know where to go, you can use your ability.Ē

Q: Do you have a first impression of defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham?

GRIGSBY: ďI love him. Heís a man. Heís tough. Defenses are built on toughness and guys who want to get things done. Passive coaches and real nice guys donít work on the defensive side of the ball, especially at this level. Iím a big fan of Coach Cunningham. Iím sure heís going to get all over my tail during my career here. I might hate him in the beginning, but I know Iíll love him in the end.Ē

I love this guy. There is no way he doesn't make this team if not just for his great attitude.

Sorry Scanlon.

I wish someone would've clued DV in on this back around 2001.

I checked out most of the videos they linked the week before the draft, and they all ran fine.

I have the same thing. It's unwatchable. Ive adjusted the settings in real player and done everything I can think of. The sound is flawless, but the video is terrible.

If grit, charisma, and personality were football traits, this guy would be on his way to the Hall of Fame. I hope his heart helps him overcome any physical shortcomings he has, because I like the guy too much to have to see him not make it.

What physical shortcomings are we talking about? I thought this guy was a workout warrior. Are you referring to football skill shortcomings?

you might try changing your color quality from 32-bit to 16-bit in the windows display properties.
