Fans are now focused on what needs to be done in order to prevent being next year’s laughing stock on top of being this year’s. Here are some changes the Chiefs need to make if they are committed to turning their franchise around.1. Stop the turnovers and start the discipline.Coming into Sunday, the Chiefs have 10 more turnovers than any other team in the NFL. In one of his last ditch efforts to save his job, Romeo Crennel has vowed to bench anyone responsible for a turnover on Monday night against Pittsburgh.While this is a good move by Crennel, it is ridiculous that it took him this long to make it. He needs to make several more like it, not only to h...

Backfield clarity only place Chiefs edge Steelers

MNF – Kansas City Chiefs vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Unless you are a fan of either team, or need you need your kicker to win your fantasy week like me – there isn’t much to watch in this dud of a Monday nighter to conclude week 10.

I solely...

Fantasy Football Week 10 Preview: Chiefs at Steelers

Kansas City: Ugly ugly ugly… and no, I’m not just talking about Romeo Crennel’s chances of being a head coach after this season, or even Scott Pioli’s chances of not being run out of town on a rail before 2013 kicks off. No, I’m just talking about the Chiefs’ chance of actually having anything useful fantasy-wise during a visit to Pittsburgh.The Steelers are playing...
