CHICAGO | There is precious little of immediate consequence still to come from this Chiefs season. This is one of the league's worst rosters, playing with wounded self-esteem against some of the NFL's best teams. The Chiefs need to make evaluations about who and what will be back for 2012, and that's important in a vague and forward-thinking way, but for now the biggest question around (and inside) the team is the future of coach Todd Haley and why he is apparently unaware that Tyler Palko is an awful NFL quarterback.

Kansas City Chiefs' QB Kyle Orton injured his index finger on his first pass of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Orton was picked up off waivers after being released by the Denver Broncos earlier this season. He entered the game for one play and was injured in no time.Fantasy ImpactOdds are this news won't harm many fantasy contenders out there...
After an outstanding 2010 and a good season so far in 2011, it would seem the Chiefs would be eager to extend the contract of WR Dwayne Bowe, the team's best offensive player, who will be a free agent after this season. However, according to a team insider, that's not going to happen anytime soon. Kansas City's front office and coaching staff still are worried about the...
Tyler Palko wasn't enjoying it, either.
He was racking up the interceptions at an alarming rate after replacing the injured Matt Cassel and watched as the Kansas City Chiefs brought in Kyle Orton, so this certainly had to feel better.
Yes, he got yanked from the game on Sunday. He also made a case to save his job.
Palko shook off two miserable starts and threw for 157 yards...
He stood in the Chiefs locker room, a stranger, answering questions about how he'll handle the expectation, fair or not, of saving this team in distress. "I'm just going to be myself," quarterback Kyle Orton said. "I think guys can see through a lot of the phony stuff."
Tyler Palko got yanked from the game - and possibly saved his job.
Palko shook off two miserable starts and threw for 157 yards and a touchdown even though he briefly got lifted for Kyle Orton, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat Chicago 10-3 Sunday on a day when the Bears lost Matt Forte to a right knee injury.
Orton came on to start the second quarter and immediately left the game...
Quarterback Tyler Palko has been slated to start Sunday's game at Chicago, according to Kansas City's official team website.
Palko has been laughably bad in his two starts, but Kyle Orton does not yet have a good enough grasp of the Chiefs offense to take over under center.
CHICAGO | Dexter McCluster might have been the only person at Soldier Field who could believe what happened. It was the first half's final play, a desperate throw by Chiefs quarterback Tyler Palko toward the end zone, and anyway, those plays never work. Right?
The Bears (7-4) will face off this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs (4-7) at Solider Field. We provide an in-depth breakdown of the starting roster of Chicago’s Week 13 opponent.
Struggling quarterback Tyler Palko is starting for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Chicago Bears on Sunday instead of newcomer Kyle Orton. The Chiefs were forced to turn to Palko after Matt Cassel suffered a season-ending injury to his throwing hand, and the results so far haven't been good. Palko threw three interceptions in each of his first two starts and committed seven...
With their fourth loss in the rearview mirror, the Caleb Hanie-led Chicago Bears welcome the deceptively decent Kansas City Chiefs to Soldier Field. Oh yeah, and Kyle Orton might show up sometime today as well. Casual NFL fans may look at this game as an easy win, but it could be very, very ugly. My breakdown illustrates why.(4-7) Kansas City Chiefs at(7-4) Chicago Bears We all saw...
