Good year/career Dez. Good luck in the NFL. Would have been even better if you could have avoided putting the ball on the carpet twice against those degenerates from across the state line................

stuckey only honorable mention? thats a joke. i personally think that guy is gonna drop jaws at the NFL combine. not only is he as strong and athletic as just about anyone, he way outclasses and outsmarts EVERYONE, and lately that has become a big part of the combines, the character interviews. keep your eye on Darrell Stuckey.

If Stuckey is there in the 2nd round and the Chiefs don't draft him, I will be very angry.

Notice Briscoe doesn't even have a good grasp of the football in the above photo.......

thx 4 everything dez...u did ur best...everything happens for a reason...you were meant to drop those 2, if not for the reason above, then to seal deepfried's fate...

But Cali is right.

He also missed a catch on the sideline that would've been a first down. It hit him right in the face. Dezbro has Jamal Charles Syndrome. He's too tough for his hands.

with any luck he'll feel awful about fumbling twice and come back for one more year

jw: I think I have agreed with every post I have seen of yours, and this is no exception. For those hating on Briscoe, be sure to cast the first stone. Must be good to be perfect.
