Priest pain in the a**??

Postby rocky123 » Thu Nov 10, 2005 5:21 pm

I was pretty shocked to read this as I, and probably most people here, felt that Priest was the consumate professional and the anti-TO:

Priest Holmes reportedly shut down his season in part because of Dick Vermeil's difficult practices.
Vermeil is well known for running some of the longest practices in the league. One league source told ProFootballtalk that Holmes is "A pain in the ass. He is either hurt or bitching about his contract." The Kansas City Star's Jason Whitlock believes Holmes may only play again if the Chiefs go after his signing bonus. ProFootballtalk believes Holmes will only return if Vermeil doesn't. Nov. 10 - 1:56 pm et

If this is true, it's sad to hear that a guy like Priest turns out to be just another spoiled player.

It's ProFootballTalk, take it with a grain of salt.

Don't buy the hype.

The only reason Priest isn't playing, is because an unlucky hit to his spine could paralyze him.

Priest has played his last game in the NFL.

there's no way Priest was bitchin about his contract or about his injuries the way Whitlock wants it to be seen... He has been very unlucky lately with injuries but he is one of the best and classiest players in the nfl and does not deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as TO much less being compared to him

ProFootballtalk believes Holmes will only return if Vermeil doesn't.

how can anybody believe this :-t

I kind of suspected something might be up with Holmes's injuries over the past 2 years. Both of them happened at exactly halfway through the season IIRC and neither of them were "cement" injuries (like a broken leg) but something that seemed like nothing but turned out to be season ending.

How do yall know that Priest is a class act?
did you think Kobe was a class act? I did.

im not saying believe everything you hear, but dont throw it out just because he seems like a good guy and doesnt complain publicly.
life is like a box of chocolates. . .
