"I have some questions about Greg Robinson. Not about him personally, but his defense. His [Denver] defense pretty much at the end of last year laid down."
-- Tim Grunhard, on the Chiefs' new defensive coordinator, WHB 810
GH: Grunhard, Bill Maas and Frank Boal started their new show on WHB at the end of July and gave us a hint that the show will be filled with star-studded interviews and a graduate course on football. Grunhard is far from smooth behind the microphone but he comes across as fairly genuine. Maas is good at getting his co-hosts and guests to go beyond the safety of typical sports-talk patter. Maas is easily the best reason to tune in. So far, Boal appears to be nothing more than parsley on a plate.
"You say [Priest Holmes] won't be a Marshall Faulk. I don't know if he'll even be a Greg Hill."
-- Bill Maas, WHB 810
GH: Welcome to Kansas City, Mr. Holmes, where you don't need to be Sherlock to understand that we are so desperate for a marquee running back that we gave Tamarick Vanover a shot at the spot a couple of summers ago.
"Our sources tell us that the Kansas City Chiefs are looking at the University of Nebraska at Omaha as a possible host for their training camp beginning next season. Coach Dick Vermeil wants to move the camp out of Wisconsin and closer to K.C., but far enough away that they can get some work done."
-- Tom Shatel, columnist, Omaha World Herald
"The media in this town needs a giant wakeup call. I don't understand when it became the job of the media in this city to go out and pucker up to every player."
-- Soren Petro, on those in the media who voiced their displeasure with the Jermaine Dye trade, KMBZ 980
GH: This is choice: Petro's chastising the local media for sucking up? Talk about the potbelly calling the kettle short!
"My ass is sore, let me tell you."
-- Lance Armstrong, winner of three consecutive Tour de France races, as he took his seat next to David Letterman, on The Late Show
GH: Armstrong revealed to Letterman that his resting pulse rate is "in the thirties."
"No Money, Seven Kids and a Really Nice Casket."
-- Dave Stewart, on his choice for Derrick Thomas' biography title, KQRC 98.9
