Did you watch his "At the Podium" thing today? 1:15 - 1:28 seems like some very interesting information to me.

http://www.kcchiefs.com/media-center/videos/From-the-Podium-Romeo-Crennel/9ae149b2-ee24-4167-a3bf-c516c3410054

"We're changing some things. Ya know, for instance, we moved the lifting from in the morning to after practice so that we can have more time in the meeting room.

And then we're going to watch the tape after practice, and we hadn't been doing that on Wednesdays."

I actually just now heard that part. This whole thing is pretty interesting. Sort of sounds like he had strong opinions about things but wasn't part of the offense and wasn't overstepping his boundaries before.

I don't agree that Orton should get a shot at starting over Stanzi. But i did like Crennel on how he talked to the media & gave his explanations. He was strait forward as he could be and I think he understands the situation he is in.


I liked his comments toward the end when he said Green Bay does not care who our QB is LMAO they have played against good quarterbacks.

exactly, that right there is more from the team/coach to the fan in the media than we have seen from Haley in three years.

Whether you agree with the points or opinions or not. At least Romeo is offering something other than blank vanilla typical response statements we have gotten from Haley in three years.

I'm not saying that's a good or a bad thing, but it is certainly refreshing to see a guy stand up there for the Chiefs and offer something that actually makes me worth watching or reading as opposed of the same schtick for 3 years from Todd.

Romeo's comments were very interesting. Especially when he said he informed "Pioli" that "Tyler" would not be starting after he talked to "Tyler".

His entire demeanor was different than Todd's. Almost an "I'm not a puppet" demeanor. I wonder if either

1) Pioli realized having a foot-shuffling porter wasn't a good idea or
2) Romeo said "I'm not going to let this shithole job ruin my chances of getting a shot somewhere else.

Romeo couldn't have done a better job with that interview. He definitely isn't into the 'veil of secrecy' game with either the media or players. Reading between the lines, it looks like the players had a bunch of anxiety/uncertainty over the way Haley wouldn't let them know who the QB would be each week.

It took Clark Hunt to prompt the fireing of Haley. It took Clark Hunt to do Pioli job. Pioli even said in press that it was all up to Haley to play who he wanted that his opinion to give best chance to win a game.

I really liked the way Romeo directly answered the questions. He really summed up the Stanzi situation pretty well.
"I know it's a tough task to ask of him but at some point he is going to have to enter a game and help run the offense. If he does a good job, that bodes well for us."

He has to keep the boss informed of his decision but it was Crennells decision to do so. Pioli doesn't have to make the hard decisions of who gets to play that is left up to the coach. Pioli is the guy who fills the roster and lets the coach do or die with that said roster.

So do you think maybe they got this thing backwards? Perhaps the owner should higher the coach and then the coach gets to pick that guy that gets the groceries.

Yeah, it was Pioli....not HALEY.

Same GM, less than a week later, completely different approach.... yet, the GM must have changed the way HE does things. Are you really that dense?

Haley didn't have an 'I'm a puppet' demeanor, he just thought everyone else wasn't nearly as smart as he was. He pouted. He was childish. Now, we see a guy who can handle the press and relationships and doesn't get butthurt about every perceived sleight, and it MUST be Pioli changing things.

Guess what, they have meetings and they talk about who is going to play. The head coaches have the final say, but of course they inform the GM about what is going on.

The fact that this is somehow seen as Pioli being controlling or oppressive is incredible.

A good healthy discussion is fine. But, when a group of fans loses all faith in the GM after less than three years...when one of those years yielded a division title, and when two of the three drafts have been very good..... it just gets old.

weak year for a coaching vacancy and I'd be fine with taking the shiniest turd of the bunch as long as the players can buy into Romeo. And it seems the defense likes playing for him, I mean I'd like to think Derrick Johnson, Hali, Carr, the potential of Berry and shining up a late round turd like Kendrick Lewis is more of a Romeo effect than it was Haley.

Sometimes, a team will respond positively to a new HC and/or a change at quarterback.

It's entirely possible that we score a touchdown against the Pack.

They went from scoring over 400 points in 07' to scoring barely 200 in 08'. That was the year Braylon Edwards dropped elvntybillion passes.

He competed in the AFC North, which is not to shabby. They choked a few games away in 07' or they would have won the division.

Since DA is one of "my guys", I watched a lot of Cleveland back then. The drops in '08 were amazing (it wasn't just Edwards). The loss of Joe Jurevicius was huge, IMO. Lewis hit the wall that year, too.

He nearly won the North in 2007, than lost a shitload of close games in 08'. We will see, maybe the guy does have some capablility.


Note also that the Browns haven't done a lick better since he left, which suggests a talent gap rather than a coaching gap in the challenging AFC North.

They could barely score in 08', but were in just about every single game.

In 2008 the Browns went from Anderson to Quinn to Dorsey to Gradkowski, all while Winslow refused to play because the GM didn't visit him in the hospital and the GM was telling fans that if you don't like the job they are doing go become a fucking Bills fan.

Did he really say that? If so, I love it.

He must have been taught like many of us, "if you don't have something good to say about someone, don't say anything at all."

But I forgot that shit.

Yes, he did. The media asked what he saw in Orton and Stanzi that he didn't see in Palko.

Um...because that is what coaches do. The dumbassery around here is ridiculous.

Guess what, they have meetings and they talk about who is going to play. The head coaches have the final say, but of course they inform the GM about what is going on.

The fact that this is somehow seen as Pioli being controlling or oppressive is incredible.

My fault.

I fully understand how things work.

What I don't understand, and was really questioning was why he felt he needed to let the media know that he informed Pioli of his decision.

And the dumbassery you spout every fucking day around here os far more ridiculous than anything in this thread, dumbass.

Im fine not killing Pioli until the real QB/coach decision is made but I do not share your feeling that Pioli is done with Cassel. Once he retains Cassel, the man should be chased down every time he steps foot on the streets of KC.

If he brings Cassel back he shouldn't get another chance. If he drafts RGIII or Barkley he should.

Well this moment before his decision is his second chance. After he makes his decision on Cassel, he will have either blown or made good on his second chance.

*cough*

This is from Monday.

http://articles.latimes.com/2011/dec/12/sports/la-sp-1213-barkley-usc-juniors-20111213

Matt Kalil was sleeping soundly, the writing of a term paper his next priority.

Instead, Kalil awoke last week to what he called "mayhem."

A website, citing an unidentified source, reported that the All-American tackle was "set to return" to USC rather than turn pro, causing Kalil's phone and Twitter account to explode with messages.

Kalil said later in an interview that he wasn't close to making a decision players have until mid-January to declare for the NFL draft - but the episode illustrated the pressures and distractions that he and three teammates are facing as they decide whether to return for a final college season.

"I guess it was kind of a glimpse of what's going to be happening," Kalil said.

Quarterback Matt Barkley, safety T.J. McDonald and defensive end Nick Perry also are weighing whether to turn pro.

Coach Lane Kiffin and Athletic Director Pat Haden met with Barkley and the quarterback's parents last week and Kiffin plans to meet with the others.

Kiffin said no universal message would be delivered because each player faces a different set of circumstances.

"It's not pressure," Kiffin said. "What we try to do is get them accurate information."

Kiffin declined to reveal what he would say individually to each player. But he said general topics would include projected draft status based on conversations with NFL personnel, historical draft information such as the average number of players at certain positions selected in the first round, and the advantages of staying in school.

"A lot of times that seems like it's one-sided toward staying, but it's really not," Kiffin said. "It's just to counter the inaccurate information that they will all receive from other people."

Former USC coach Pete Carroll said he never discouraged players from turning pro if they were projected as the No. 1 player at their position, the theory being that a player could not improve his status by returning.

Kiffin allows that issues such as family financial situations and other factors come into play.

"When it's all said and done, it's, what do they want to do?" he said.

Barkley, who finished sixth in balloting for the Heisman Trophy, is projected as one of the top quarterbacks in the draft. Washington Coach Steve Sarkisian caused a stir last month when he stated that, were he an NFL coach, he would select Barkley before Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, the Heisman runner-up for the second year in a row.

But Luck remains the presumed No. 1 overall pick.

Barkley was serenaded by chants of "one more year" during a season-ending rout of UCLA, and was the subject of a petition by students hoping he would remain at USC. He has also received dozens of please-stay messages across social media platforms.

Kalil, projected by some to be the first lineman taken if he declares for the draft, said he has not been pressured by coaches. He added that he would not succumb to it anyway because of knowledge and support provided by his father, Frank, a former pro football player, and brother, Ryan, a former USC All-American who plays for the Carolina Panthers and is the highest-paid center in NFL history.

In the beginning, I hated the idea of Romeo as HC, but now it doesn't seem so bad. Like you said, it looked like a talent problem instead of a coaching problem.

I think this stems from three years of watching Haley wet himself.

We forgot what a real coach looks like. Not talking about Herm. Herm had his own issues. But, it has been six years since DV was handling press conferences and running the team.

DV had his issues, but you could see a professionalism that is no longer there.

Herm was not as professional, but he got along with the players, the front office and the media. He didn't pout and protest and whine and hold grudges and get 15 yard penalties from the sidelines.

So, we have seen a gradual decline in the head coaching position.

Suddenly, six years after DV, after we have been conditioned to watching a total boob do the press conferences as HC, we get a stark contrast with Romeo. We get to see someone who is at least professional and engaging.

I hadn't even truly realized how bad it had gotten until I heard Romeo talk. Then, I thought, holy crap....Haley sucked even worse than I thought.... I just didn't realize it because Herm was not great coach either. Haley was just a small step down from Herm.

But, Herm was a big step down from DV. Now, we have taken two steps and it has been 5.5 years since we had a HC that was truly fitting of the job.
