WR Samie Parker - Free Agent
|5-11, 190||Born: 3-25-1981||College: Oregon||Drafted: Round 4, pick 0|
2007 Week 1 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Parker showed glimpses of promise as he pulled in four of the seven passes thrown his way for 48 yards. He had some excellent catches where he demonstrated exceptional ball awareness.
2007 Week 2 vs CHI (5 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Parker was the deep target in the Chiefs offense. He was targeted once in the end zone on a well thrown ball that was tipped and intercepted by the Bears defense.
2007 Week 3 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Parker was the only wide receiver other than Bowe to make a reception. His lone reception was a short pass that Parker was able to make a move, and use his speed to turn it into a 22 yard gain. His only other target was a deep route Huard missed him on.
2007 Week 5 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 28 / 1 rec)
Parker was not involved in the game much, with two of his targets coming after Croyle entered the game. He did convert one of those targets into Kansas City's only touchdown.
2007 Week 6 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Parker was the third option at wide out, catching one of the two balls thrown his way. The pass he dropped was due to a helmet to ball hit by the defender, and it was ruled incomplete.
2007 Week 7 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Parker caught the only ball thrown in his direction and also was utilized on one run for positive yardage. He is not producing serviceable fantasy numbers, but he is a nice extra option for Kansas City.
2007 Week 9 vs GB (4 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Parker saw the most targets of any Chiefs wide out, but was only able to convert them into two receptions. But he did play an important role in two of the three touchdowns. On the first score he drew a pass interference penalty on a pass in the end zone that was caught out of bounds, giving the Chiefs first and goal on the one yard line. He also drew a pass interference penalty on the play immediately preceding the touchdown pass to Tony Gonzalez.
2007 Week 10 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
With an abundance of targets for Kansas City, Parker was a bit forgotten in the passing department, but he did catch the only ball thrown to him.
2007 Week 11 vs IND (2 / 0 / 5 / 0 rec)
Parker was only targeted twice. His first target was when Croyle was off target in a throw into the end zone. He was unable to hold onto the other opportunity on a hard throw that hit him in the hands.
2007 Week 12 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Parker caught the only pass thrown to him but there were just not enough passes for him to receive much attention.
2007 Week 15 vs TEN (3 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Parker provided an outstanding effort for this contest. He caught all three passes thrown to him for 33 yards. On his touchdown catch, Croyle threw a short pass that Parker caught inside the ten yard line. Parker made a great move on the potential tackler leaving him clutching air and then ran in for the score.
2007 Week 16 vs DET (5 / 2 / 56 / 0 rec)
Parker caught two passes for 56 yards. On the last play of the game, he also received a lateral from Kolby Smith that he carried or 21 yards while time was running out. On one of his cuts, he slipped and fell to the ground, ending the game as time ran out.
2007 Week 17 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Parker saw only three balls come his way, bringing in two of them for 23 yards.
2006 Week 1 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Parker lost ten receiving yards on a catch that was negated due to offensive pass interference. It should be noted that the interference call was on Parker himself, and he wouldn't have caught the ball otherwise.
2006 Week 2 vs DEN (6 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
After problems last week, Parker came out strong and finished the game as Huard's number one target. He caught five of the six passes thrown his way. He demonstrated dependable hands while catching the ball.
2006 Week 4 vs SF (2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
Parker caught both passes thrown his way during the game. Like Eddie Kennison, he had also expressed a desire to be targeted more often in the passing game.
2006 Week 5 vs ARI (7 / 5 / 37 / 1 rec)
Parker gave glimpses of the receiver Kansas City hopes he can be. He pulled in five of the eight passes thrown his way, but he still dropped a sure pass that he should have caught. He still needs to provide more consistency and dependability.
2006 Week 6 vs PIT (6 / 5 / 72 / 0 rec)
Parker made the best of the Chiefs' vanilla offense and managed 72 yards on five receptions, most of which came in the second half. Parker had first half catch for eight yards, the longest reception of the first half. When K.C. expanded a bit in the third quarter is when Parker's numbers took a shot in the arm. Parker caught passes of 17 and 15 on the Chiefs' only touchdown drive. He also caught two passes for 33 yards in what nearly became another touchdown drive, but penalties inside the five yard line and a dropped pass in the end zone (not by Parker) killed the drive.
2006 Week 7 vs SD (5 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Parker had one reception for 15 yards. He also had a two yard gain on an end around. He dropped a pass in the fourth quarter.
2006 Week 8 vs SEA (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Parker was not targeted often and caught only one pass in this game. Huard seems to have developed a stronger rapport with Kennison and Gonzalez.
2006 Week 9 vs STL (2 / 1 / 43 / 0 rec)
Parker missed a ball thrown in his direction as he was unable to leap high enough to pull down a very high throw on a crossing route in the first quarter. He came back and caught the longest pass for the Chiefs all day, a pretty 43 yard reception that set up first and goal for Kansas City. He caught the ball in stride inside the Rams' ten between the cornerback in coverage and the safety coming over to help.
2006 Week 10 vs MIA (5 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Parker was targeted often by Huard but with Huard constantly under-protected, the passes were not the best and Parker only caught one of the five meant for him.
2006 Week 11 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Parker became more prominent again in the offense as Green returned from his head injury and with Gonzalez out with a shoulder injury. Parker hauled in three of the four balls sent his way for a good 44 yards total.
2006 Week 12 vs DEN (4 / 3 / 71 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Parker was very reliable catching three passes for 71 yards. He had the highest yardage total from passes for the Chiefs.
2006 Week 13 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Parker gathered in one of only two balls thrown his way. He did not receive much attention as Green stuck with his tried and true favorite receivers.
2006 Week 14 vs BAL (8 / 5 / 71 / 0 rec)
Parker has often been a bit forgotten this year, but in this game, he was Trent Green's favorite target. He successfully grabbed five out of the eight passes meant for him and he had the highest reception yards too, 71 yards through the air.
2006 Week 15 vs SD (3 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Parker's only catch was the biggest of the game for Kansas City, a 26 yard hookup at the end of the first half. His other targets were mostly deep as well.
2006 Week 16 vs OAK (3 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
Parker caught a big pass on the Chiefs first drive of the game when he came up with a 24 yard reception on a fourth and eight play. He made a nice diving reception to keep the ball off the ground on the play and it helped set up the Chiefs first touchdown of the game. Parker caught a 15 yard pass to the Raiders' seven yard line on the Chiefs' second possession. His only other catch was a nine reception.
2006 Week 17 vs JAX (5 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Parker saw good inclusion in the game plan as he was targeted five times. He collected two of the passes for 29 yards.
2006 Week 18 vs IND (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Parker was targeted once in the game on the Chiefs' final possession. Antoine Bethea anticipated the pass and jumped in front of Parker to make an interception.
2005 Week 1 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Parker wasn't heard from too much, and wasn't targeted at all in the second half. He was the intended target on the Trent Green interception in the end zone, so the good news out of that is that at least the Chiefs were looking for him in the end zone.
2005 Week 2 vs OAK (6 / 3 / 86 / 0 rec)
Parker mostly had a good game. He was Trent Green's second favorite target. He also had better than a 28 yard average per catch. His one fault was a fumble on the Chiefs' next to last series that looked like it might have led to disaster for the Chiefs. Fortunately the defense stopped the Raiders and Parker may avoid nightmares about that mistake.
2005 Week 3 vs DEN (9 / 2 / 21 / 1 rec)
Parker only managed to catch two of the ten targets that came his way for 21 yards. During the Chiefs' opening drive, he made his first reception but it was for no gain. On the Chiefs' final drive, Green looked to Parker unsuccessfully twice, and then finally Parker made a 21 yard touchdown reception, the only touchdown of the game for the Chiefs.
2005 Week 4 vs PHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Parker had no catches in the game and dropped one pass that hit him in the chest as he was coming out of his break.
2005 Week 6 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Parker caught the first pass of the game and, all told, the young player played well. He did not drop the ball as he had in the past. Unfortunately, he injured his knee attempting to catch a low pass in the third quarter and would not return.
2005 Week 11 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 23 / 1 rec)
Parker was a welcome sight back to the Chiefs. He has missed some time this year due to injury. His return gives Kansas City a needed deep threat on passing downs. He caught both passes thrown his way and ran one in for a touchdown.
2005 Week 12 vs NE (5 / 5 / 76 / 0 rec)
Parker appears to finally be back from his early season injuries. He looked like the extra receiver that the Chiefs had hoped he would be. He is the speed wide receiver the Chiefs were hoping for. He finished with the highest yardage total for all Chiefs' receivers. We may need to wait until after another game to see if this can be depended on in future contests.
2005 Week 13 vs DEN (5 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Parker's primary contribution to this game was for humor - he made the ultimate wide receiver gaffe. He caught what seemed to be a 20 yard touchdown from Trent Green. Parker then posed for the cameras and hammed it up for his audience. Only problem was, Eddie Kennison was whistled for illegal motion before the play not only did Parker have his touchdown negated - he scored when no one on Denver was even trying to defend him. Then he overdid the celebration on his great play that never happened, looking quite foolish in the process.
2005 Week 14 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 79 / 0 rec)
Parker has firmly established himself as the number two receiver on this squad. He made a couple very impressive grabs on some tough catches. He showed good sideline awareness on a vital catch of 14 yards on the game's final drive.
2005 Week 15 vs NYG (8 / 6 / 87 / 0 rec)
Parker had another good game in Week 15, as he is becoming a favorite of QB Trent Green. Parker had the most targets of any Chief, getting ten chances to make a play. However, in one instance he tried a bit too hard. Parker's longest catch was for 24 yards in the second quarter, but he fumbled just as Kansas City had crossed midfield in the two minute drill. Instead of the Chiefs having another scoring chance before halftime, the turnover led to a 10-3 halftime lead. Parker caught at least one ball and had at least two targets in every quarter. He was personally responsible for almost 50% of Green's production (87 of 176 yards), and he moved the chains on all six of his catches. Parker also gained 20 yards for his team by drawing a pass interference call in the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 16 vs SD (6 / 4 / 58 / 1 rec)
Parker continues to gain more looks and playing time for the Chiefs. He is becoming a favorite target for Trent Green. He even had a 42 yard reception for a touchdown as he used his blazing speed to pull away from two defensive backs as Green hit him with a beautiful pass down the middle on the touchdown.
2005 Week 17 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Parker did not contribute as much in this contest as he had been in recent contests. He had one good reception.
