Hope you drafted Larry Johnson, too...: because Priest Holmes is done for the season.

This is actually good news for my fantasy team, now I know who to start!

I'm still hopeful that T.O. comes back, I picked him up off of waivers just in case, for a playoff run.

I hope Priest Holmes gets better for next year. He's too good a player, too important to the Chiefs, and frankly, it'd just suck. In similar news, Wayne Chrebet looks pretty much done.

It's a shame about Cherbet, however, Wayne has nothing to regret - he should be immortalized as a Jet - from Hofstra walk-on to 11 year vet, he deserves to have his number retired.

I'm guessing Chrebet's close personal friend Me-Shawn feels otherwise. Of course I have no evidence to support this claim, but I'll roll the dice on my gut instinct here.

Funny how a story about Preist Holmes and Larry Johnson turned into a crybaby story for Wayne Chrebet. Point is.......LJ is an EXCELLENT pick up. Chrebet has been a good 3RD receiver his whole career, but let's back of on HOF talk or number retiring.

Prist Holmes a class act on and off the field. Walk away and enjoy life . you deserve it.

Turbo and bryan5t, you both need to read the newbie notes and stop the gratuitous insults if you wanna remain around here. Friendly word of warning.

See what happens when you mention Wayne Chrebet? The Hofstra crown shows up and gets all ghetto on you.

Priest Holmes is a class act and I hate to see him out. I don't think it is career ending.

I'm ignoring the slapfight. If he's got a spinal bruise, then Priest isn't going anywhere at all if & until it gets better. And if he's feeling pins & needles in his extremities (as was reported), then he shouldn't hurry back. Like, ever. He can afford to stay home and not get any worse for the rest of his life. (Running Backs don't last long, and they hurt for the rest of their lives. I wouldn't blame him one bit if he walked away.) As far as his career... over the last four or five years, he was arguably the most dangerous back in football. Multiple CNS injuries are not the kind of thing you want to go through, and no amount of money will bring the feeling in your extremities back.

I agree with Richard j Garcia, if Priest Holmes has got a spinal injury then he should get away from football. It is not worth your health for the sake of playing a game.

Holmes came out of nowhere to make himself into one of the most dangerous, explosive weapons in football. Football's a tough game on running backs. As for Larry Johnson, as a Penn State fan I hoped he'd latch onto the right situation after college, and it looks like he definitely did. The Chiefs won't miss a beat. And as for fantasy, I'd never believe Johnson would have been available in any league since draft day. He's one of the only backs I can recall who you can start in you lineup even when Priest was healthy and playing.

Bobby Cox as manager of the year? You've gotta be kidding. How could you not give it to Scrap Iron ? Bobby's great getting a team to post season but that's where it ends - time and time and time again. Besides, Garner hasn't beaten his wife.

Looks like you took a wrong turn. Manager of the year thread is thataway -->.

Bobby Cox coaches the Chiefs?

Bobby Cox coaches the Chiefs? Well, no wonder the Braves keep losing in the postseason...Bobby's holding down two jobs!
