    Herm already stated he taking the big play out and being more conservative. He must be a fortune teller

    Damn, what was the over and under for Herm having an excuse to fail? Did anyone have the first day of training camp?

    Didn't he sign an extension a few months back? Or was that Shields?

    It was Roaf.

    I don't expect Shields to be back after this year.

    Should I bump my top 3 Fantasy RB list? THIS IS HUGE (But wasn't he injured last year any way?)

    I have LJ in a keeper league so this hurts. I definatley switch my fantasy list around due to this injury though.

    Crap, this really could have some implications.....

    This is when it all comes out....

    Rebuen Droughns got hit w/o Bentley

    Thomas is down, Benson is starting with the Beats

    LJ is losing a rock at OT (and remember, KC loves going Off Tackle with Herm at the helm)

    heres an old article. does this mean they dont think they have a chance to win with herm at the helm?

    From may

    Shields, Roaf return with 12 Pro Bowls eachAssociated Press


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Will Shields and Willie Roaf must have sounded like bashful adolescents trying to muster the courage to line up a prom date.

    "One of us would say, 'Hey, can you do it?' " Shields recalled.

    "Then [Roaf] would say, `I don't know. What about you?"'


    "Well, I think I can. But I'm not sure. Are you sure?"


    "I guess so."


    Luckily for the Kansas City Chiefs, the two offensive linemen decided that they could. The two 12-time Pro Bowlers talked themselves and each other into making one more run at that elusive Super Bowl title.


    "We were sort of feeding off each other," Shields said after Wednesday's practice session. "We talked about it all the time."


    Roaf was certainly pleased with Shields' decision.


    "It was great seeing Will come back," he said. "That helped."


    Roaf's 2005 season was plagued by a hamstring injury that sidelined the left tackle for several games.


    Shields' situation was complicated by the salary cap. But his possible departure was prevented when the Chiefs displayed a willingness to find the necessary room to retain the right guard.


    "I think it was more the issue of whether I was going to be here," Shields said. "That and retirement were different things I had to consider. That was a big issue, whether I was even going to be a Chief."


    Rarely is any team going to have two offensive linemen with 24 Pro Bowl invitations between them. That a close bond would bind the two seems only natural.


    "That's a cool thing," he said. "I think that's worked to our advantage, the simple fact we were guys who came in at the same time. Hopefully, we can retire at the same time. We're both guys who have fun while we're doing it, and fortunately we've been able to accomplish a few things -- just not the ultimate thing yet."

    Upon realizing Herm Edwards was now KC head coach, Roaf realized that a Super Bowl title was an impossibility, so decided not to waste his time with another year.
