View Full Version : Chiefs Crennel making changes


Count Alex's Losses

Dude is definitely angling for the job.

A new routine

Interim Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel held his first regularly scheduled player meetings Wednesday, and in addition to telling his team about the change at quarterback, Crennel also adjusted the team’s schedule.

Instead of lifting weights in the morning, the team lifted after practice. Crennel also held an earlier practice than those scheduled by former coach Todd Haley, and Crennel scheduled an afternoon film session to view and critique that day’s practice.

“The other thing that I think they have to do is try to get used to me, my personality, how I do things, how I go about things,” Crennel said. “They will learn that as we go along. I talked to them about the challenge, what we have to do, how I think we have to play the game, what needs to be done and kind of told them what I expected a little bit. They listened because they didn’t have any other choice.”

In addition to benching quarterback Tyler Palko, Crennel said the Chiefs might run the ball more often than they had during their first 13 games.

Crennel also established an open-door policy to his office, telling players that if one of his changes isn’t working, to approach him with concerns.

“We told them, ‘Look, if things don’t work well or we’ve got issues, come talk to me and we’ll see if we can adjust them if we want to adjust them and we’ll go from there,’ ” he said. “That’s where we were with the team.”

Seems like a smart idea to run the ball against the #1 offense in points in the league.

Try to control the clock and keep them off the field.

In a Haley ran offense this year it was hard to describe what the hell they were trying to run. There was nothing to suggest that the game plan was to run or pass the ball it was just what ever fuck it we will try this and hope to get some yards. It was horindous to watch just total fail.

Now I think Romeo can give this unit a focus and focal point of an attack that will give some identity and just to gain confidence in it. Got to start with something.

Chief Fans have to be careful not to overmicromanage the inspection of every peep out of Romeo.

Romeo has three weeks here to demonstrate something. Give him some room to breathe...

"More running" is synonymous with "our passing attack doesn't work right now"

“I thought about Green Bay not knowing, but then I said, ‘Hey, they don’t care who our quarterback is.’ When they look at the quarterbacks on our roster, they don’t care who plays. They look at Tyler and what he’s done the past couple of weeks, and they look at Orton and know he’s got a finger (injury), and they look at a rookie. I don’t think that they’re shaking in their boots.”

- This statement gives me hope that Romeo knows a decent QB from a piece of junk and that KC only has junk - Cassel included.

I see you are back onto your old Herm schtick now that Crennel is coach.

Let's see, you either have a QB with an injured finger on his throwing hand, or a rookie. Do you have them throw the ball 40 times and risk quick 3 and outs getting Rodgers back on the field, or do you try to run the ball a little more and keep Rodgers off the field. Hmmm.

You cant be serious with this shit?

You actually think with this OL, Battle and Jones that they are going to take the pressure off who ever is the QB? You are telling me that now that Haley is gone, Jones and Battle are going to dominate the NFL... News flash buddy. Its doesnt matter who the coach is.. Battle and Jones are going to solve any issues for you...

And how is making fun of a year long issue, reverting back to Herm?

What's the difference between 3 straight incomplete passes or 3 straight runs for 2 yards?

The only thing running the ball does is mercifully get the game over sooner.

Well, we are already a run-heavy team that can't get a first down regardless if we run or pass. Doesn't much matter what we do, but suggesting running more is the obvious best strategy is very simpleton.

Crennel hasnt dont anything worth while in KC to earn the HC position.. Just like Carl and Herm... Herm didnt do anything to earn the HC position.

Same with Bill Muir as the OC.. Bill's resume as an OC in the NFL isnt something to write home about...

Why should I accept the fact that Bill is the OC because he was someones buddy?

Yes, He was considered a more polished receiver than Golden Tate. :banghead:

That lasted 1 season

Whomever(presumably Pioli) wanted DMC in the 2nd round should be beaten severely. Then Haley should be beaten for not knowing how to use him.

If we had a QB that could push the ball downfield, you could use McCluster in FAR different ways. You can't run screen passes when your opponent neither respects your run NOR your intermediate/long passing game. Quite frankly, if the guy wasn't so shifty, he's have about 50 draw plays for negative yards.

Nothing works when the other team knows you can't do about 66% of what a normal NFL offense can do.

I get that you want to lay a lot of this at Haley's feet, he's certainly not blameless. But if he had called the kind of game alot of people wanted, Cassel's TD/INT ratio would be upside down and we'd still be losing.

The QB position is FAR AND AWAY the biggest issue on this team.

I’m sure most remember how the Chiefs defense played Chicago. In that game we got a glimpse of the Chiefs D doing to the Chicago O what opposing teams have been doing to the Chiefs O all year. That is, crowding the line to take away running lanes and disguise the blitz and daring the offense to beat you on the QB’s arm. The Chiefs can’t do that, everyone knows it, so we should expect to see more of the same until they prove they can get the ball down the field.

No, that's just one thing. Not even the big one.

Sproles has great strength in his core and lower body. He can fight through tackles.

McCluster can't shake off a 170 pound cornerback in the open field.

He also has the most ineffective spin move I've ever seen on an 'elusive' player.

I'm hoping a third season with KC will elude him.

Well, if it makes you feel any better Dante Hall was far more worthless in his first two seasons, but he proved to have value as a returner and gadget player.

I mean I was strongly in the "This guy sucks, cut him tomorrow" camp with Hall until he started scoring TD's.

Its not about me, you are deflecting.

No idea what you would have them do? As I thought, as previously posted, it is your schitck or whatever that is called.

We get it, you don't like anything they are doing.



You are right, I havent liked anything they are doing this whole year...

Glad we are on the same page...

It's so true. His "spin move" involves twirling in one geographic location thus allowing the defender to clock his ass from any direction.

It is just ****ing maddening, hopefully that is over with. Didn't he get drafted as a slot receiver, or a poor man's Wes Welker?

I think they want him to fill the role of Christian Okoye...

But yes, its fucking stupid to say the least... :banghead:

I think when you have Charles back and maybe, maybe, an up and coming QB, McCluster won't look so bad. If you can stretch the field, and with Charles in only use him a little bit, it might make him more effective or at the very least he won't be killing drives with only a few touches.

Why the fuck would they run the ball more? We have all the same people that couldn't run the ball before so I don't see that changing. At least with a new QB in we have a chance at maybe being able to pass the ball. JFC, we have three top notch receivers and a new QB that could be fairly good. Yes, lets run the ball for 1.5 yards every god damn play. Morons.

If we had a QB that could push the ball downfield, you could use McCluster in FAR different ways. You can't run screen passes when your opponent neither respects your run NOR your intermediate/long passing game. Quite frankly, if the guy wasn't so shifty, he's have about 50 draw plays for negative yards.

Nothing works when the other team knows you can't do about 66% of what a normal NFL offense can do.

I get that you want to lay a lot of this at Haley's feet, he's certainly not blameless. But if he had called the kind of game alot of people wanted, Cassel's TD/INT ratio would be upside down and we'd still be losing.

The QB position is FAR AND AWAY the biggest issue on this team.

:clap: Exactly why I say I liked Haley until Palko. All anyone had to do was watch the way defenses packed the middle of the field and linebackers took short drops. They knew the Chiefs could not hit a downfield pass on either third side of the field. No way a team can compete offensively when the offense is confinded to 1/3 of the field.

I don't think the guy has any business being behind the line of scrimmage for any reason, but what do I know? He was listed as a slow WR in college.

He can't block a rushing CB when they are head up, let alone a DE when he has a head of steam.

To me, he is about the worst use of a draft pick they have made. Wasn't that the pick that was compensation for Tony G. or was that the Arenas pick?

As long as it "doesnt" go as follows I'll consider it a good change..

1st down and 10, 3 yrd rush up the middle mighty midget.
2nd down and 7, 2 yrd rush to the left Thomas jones.
3rd down and 5, 4 yrd catch Bowe bobbled but somehow held on. pass was short.
4th down and 1, Haley takes a chance in enemy territory and goes for it, -2 yrd run up the middle by the mighty midget.
At least I know for sure the 4th down play cant happen...er most likely wont happen.

Ugh your right I havent read all the threads/posts the last day or so .. now looking back.. were going to run more? Yippie Yahooie..sigh

In addition to benching quarterback Tyler Palko, Crennel said the Chiefs might run the ball more often than they had during their first 13 games.

So were going Tbowe

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Lerner is determined to get his next round of hirings right. He feels responsible for the failures of Savage and Crennel, who were both new to their positions when they were hired in 2005. He doesn't consider the past four years a waste and feels the Browns can attract talent despite their troubles.

"I would like to think we are a more compelling organization to come be a part of than we were four years ago," he said.

Crennel went 24-40 in four seasons with the Browns, who entered 2008 with huge expectations but collapsed amid injuries to quarterbacks Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson; dropped passes by wide receiver Braylon Edwards; and uneven play on offense and defense. Cleveland didn't score an offensive touchdown while losing its last six games.

"This has been a crazy year, starting with the injuries," said Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas. "It seems like every bit of adversity you could possibly have happened to us. It felt like it was one thing after the other."

Kinda ironic that Lerner's first choice to take over GM duties after Cowher turned him down was... Scott Pioli...

I remember the media kept painting Cleveland's GM job as the perfect situation for every GM.

Which was amusing because it was such ridiculous bullshit.
