“I’m done with the Chiefs.” – Greg Wesley
Right back atcha, baby. The fans dumped him long ago, but now the Chiefs are finally terminating (releasing is too nice of a term) Greg Wesley! Short of giving me free season tix and a signed D-Bo jersey, this is the best present the Chiefs could give me. We first asked for the bum’s release on March 30 of last year. Check out this excerpt from an old edition of The Cut List:
3. S Greg Wesley - Here is another guy that just makes my stomach quiver. Completely blowing, like former Chiefs D-back Jason Belser did, is one thing. The piss-poor attitude that Wesley brings to the field every Sunday is another. How many times have we seen him completely quit on a play, usually ceding a touchdown to the opposition (remember Shannon Sharpe…Tiki Barber…Mark Clayton…and on and on and on)? How many times have we seen him go for the knockout hit and completely miss the ball carrier? How many times have we seen him just run by a ball carrier, matador style, then shake his head? He has to go. I seriously hope that the organization’s faith in Page and Pollard and the signing of McGraw means a pink slip for old G-Wes. My disdain for Wesley is so great that we will soon be running another feature specifically dedicated to this defensive turnstile.
Who in the hell were the two guys ranked ahead of him, you ask? Ryan Sims and Eric Hicks, respectively. Not exactly good company.
My guess is that I’m not the only happy Chiefs fan today. I think a lot of Chiefs fans will have a little extra pep in their step today knowing that the Chiefs finally gave up on G-Wes, just like he did on so many back-breaking plays. So, adiós, El Matador. We’ll enjoy watching you whiff in colors other than Red and Gold in ’08. Personally, I’m praying for Navy and Orange. You and Samie Parker deserve each other. And Patrick Surtain better watch his back.
