Priest out for year???

Even when or if he returns, He will not be the same Priest that we all know. It will take time for him to get back up to speed and even if he returns next week Blaylock still may get the majority of the carries for awhile.

It's just interesting on what we choose to give creedence to.


Does that shock you? Have you seen the threads on this site regarding other players? It is a mixture of eternal optimism for your player and justifying in one's own mind the selection of said player. Some Barlow owners refuse to accept that they made a mistake taking him in the 2nd round and still ask "can he turn it around"? It only makes sense that Priest owners hold out hope of his return and that Blaylock owners hold out hope they made the ww pickup of the century. Maybe it is more "rooting" for one or the other than anything else.


so true

I have him as well but I was able to pick up Blaylock before anyone else in my league got the news when he got hurt. I hope he comes back though, I'm unsure of Blaylock. I also have McGahee and J.Jones so it will be musical chairs at running back the rest of the way for me.

I don't care if they only use him on the goal line when he gets back. I just need those GUARANTEED TD points

Cos, you and I have the exact same lineup at RB. Making starting decisions sure was a lot easier before Priest got hurt. I started JJ on Thursday (whew), but don't have the slightest idea how to choose between Blaylock and McGahee this Sunday. Sucks, doesn't it?

latest i could find this sucks!!! :-o :-o :-o :-t :-t

Vermeil also said running back Priest Holmes would miss another week. It will be the fourth straight game Holmes has missed since spraining medial collateral ligaments in his right knee on Nov. 7 at Tampa Bay.

Counting the Tampa Bay game, the Chiefs (3-8) are 0-4 since he was injured.

``Priest continues to make progress, but I think he's at least two weeks away. He won't be ready for this week,'' Vermeil said.

Vermeil indicated the injury may not be healing as quickly as doctors thought it would.

``He's on consistent rehab each day,'' Vermeil said. ``He goes through a rehab program and a treatment program. But there's not a lot of things you can put magic salve on. It's just normal routine that almost everybody in the country uses in regard to that. Tomorrow, I understand, he'll start in a limited running program.''

Vermeil also responded sharply to criticism directed toward Holmes for not joining his teammates on the sideline during games. Television cameras showed him several times on Sunday sitting in a press-box suite eating snacks.

The NFL limits the number of people who can be in the bench area during games and discourages disabled players from being there, team spokesman Bob Moore said. He said the Chiefs have been fined several times for having too many people in the bench area.

Vermeil said most of the injured Chiefs players also watched the game from the suite.

``When you lose, there's criticism of everything,'' Vermeil said. ``If they want to criticize Priest Holmes for sitting up in the box with the rest of the guys, they have a choice. The league prefers them not to be on the field.''

I still say he guts it oout and plays at least some this week

If Priest is gonna come back, I don't want him back until he's ready. I'm still holding out hope. What really sucks though, is L. Johnson stealing some carries from Blaylock. Blaylock should light up OAK next week but with Johnson getting more carries than Blaylock last week, I don't think I can start him over LT/Pittman/JJ. Thankfuly, that combo was great this past week.

I built depth at RB this year through the WW but now have 6 backs and currently, only 3 are safe plays IMO. Now my WR depth sucks. It's painful to think I gave up on A. Lelie, C. Chambers and B. Stokley (he's still big hit or big miss) a bit too early. N. Burleson served me well while Moss was out but now he's anything but a safe start.

I'm the league point leader and tied for 1st at 9-2 but I'm playing the other 1st place owner this week. Now, with Boldin getting a brand spanking new QB this week, I have to hope Jerry Porter can come close to last night's performance vs KC.
My Championship Winning Lineup:
QB: BVolek
