Priest's Hip

Postby The Dude_ffc » Fri Sep 26, 2003 3:01 pm

I don't have him but I might trade while his value is so high right now if I did. You could get just about anybody for him, maybe 2 good starters...

Kansas City News:  Well here we go again....Yup you guessed it another RB with issues.  It turns out RB Priest Holmes is now questionable for this game.  Padre's surgically repaired hip is giving him problems, according to General manager Carl Peterson on his weekly radio show.  However Peterson says Holmes will play, just like last week when he didn't practice.

Im not sure what i'd do if i owned holmes... i dont own him in either of my leagues, but if I did, I'd try to trade him for ricky and maybe a good wr? I dunno, its possible that with one good shot he could be out for a longgg time...

I said it at the begining of the year, Holmes can't go a season without getting injured. If I had him, I would trade him for a good rb and a good wr.

Everyone questioned his health last week, but he still got the job done. He's been the most consistent RB in football so far this year, and no one you can start even compares to him. So given the fickleness of injuries in the nfl, why go with anyone else?

The people that have Holmes are currently basking in the aura (imagined or real) of their drafting brilliance right now. He has as many or more TDs in 3 games than the following players had all of last year:

Jamal Lewis
Edgerrin James
Corey Dillon
Randy Moss
Plaxico Burress...

You get the idea.

If you want him, you'll have to pry him from my cold, dead hands (or something like that).

What in the hell are you talking about? How many games did he miss in 1998? How many games did he miss in 2000? How many games did he miss in 2001 when he won the rushing title? Do you know how many games he's missed in the last 3 years?... 2. How many games did Ricky Williams miss since he joined the league 4 years ago?...10.

He's probably one of the many owners who have sour grapes for passing up on Priest when they had a chance. :,-(
