vermeil on priest

Postby cooleyhigh » Fri Sep 24, 2004 9:28 am

VERMEIL: “Priest worked out a little bit at the end of practice. He did just some jogging and starting exercises and figure eights and all that. He felt pretty good about that. I think he’s questionable to doubtful. Eddie Kennison did some striding, and he felt pretty good about it. I think he’s questionable to doubtful.”

Q: Are you optimistic about Priest Holmes at all playing on Sunday?

VERMEIL: “No, we’re preparing to play without him. I think that’s our best approach. Personally I wouldn’t want to play him if he wasn’t really ready. I wouldn’t want to injure it further to the point where he misses more ballgames. It’s not that we don’t need him, but I think we owe it to him to make sure he’s really right before we just stick him in there.”

Q: How is your game plan and philosophy going to change with him not in the lineup?

VERMEIL: “Not at all. We never change it when we put Derrick in the ball game anyway, nor will we change it if Larry goes in. We prepare our offense and those guys work on everything, all through practice sessions prior to anybody getting hurt. Priest always gets more reps, but Derrick Blaylock especially is an experienced player and a very smart football player. Larry is very smart; he just doesn’t have any reps.”

Assuming he is telling the truth would you go with Blaylock or Johnson?

Well, in the DKL, I have:

Edge - Questionable (will most likely split carries)
Dom - must start this week
Martin - Bye
Blaylock - might start against Houston
ReShard Lee - will get some carries behind George against Washington


As you know, I have to start 2, so unless I get a clear cut - "Yes, Edge is feeling fine, will start, and will see most of the carries." out of Dungy, I really have no choice but to start Blaylock or Lee... If Priest is inactive, then I think Blaylock is the lesser of two evils...

This is just my opinion, and that probably doesn't mean much, but I don't think Priest will play. Should that be the case, I would think Larry would get a lot of carries. The whole "diaper" fiasco sounds like a way for Vermeil to motivate LJ to play well.
