Several Chiefs players, including captains Derrick Johnson and Eric Berry, were guilty of a group celebration against NFL rules in the third quarter of Monday night's overtime loss to the Steelers. They were celebrating an apparent fumble on a third down by Pittsburgh quarterback Byron Leftwich that Justin Houston returned for a touchdown that would have put the Chiefs ahead 17-10.
The play was ruled an incomplete pass instead after a video review, but the Chiefs penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct stood and the Steelers kept the ball with a fresh set of downs and the extra 15 yards.
Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports coach Romeo Crennel said he wasnt sure whether playing on national TV caused the Chiefs to turn into entertainers as well as football players.
I have no idea, Crennel said. It was a surprise to me to see some of those celebrations, per se. The rules are explicit about no celebrating, particularly group celebrations. You cannot have those. Our guys, they know the rules and they should not have done it. I will talk to my players about that, and I dont expect it to happen again.
We had some penalties that were really uncharacteristic of the guys on this team, Crennel said. They were celebrating and dancing and those kinds of things. With the record we have, we really cant afford to be dancing or anything like that. Our focus should be on trying to play good football and trying to do everything to help the team win and not do things that cost the team field position and give a good opponent some momentum and those kinds of things."
I do have a young team and I keep mentioning that all the time. Young guys do make young mistakes. Were going to educate those guys about their actions
and then were going to eliminate it. Source: The Redzone Attached Thumbnails

Usually first-year head coaches are exempt from the proverbial hot seat, but this season has been anything but predictable, and it has a pair of first-year head coaches beginning to look like dead men walking. Romeo Crennel and Mike Mularkey aren't on their first head coaching jobs. Crennel led the Browns for four years from 2005 through 2008. Mularkey held the top job in Buffalo...
The Kansas City Chiefs' dancing and celebrating during their 16-13 overtime loss Monday night in Pittsburgh didn't sit well with coach Romeo Crennel. "It was a surprise to me to see some of those celebrations, per se," Crennel said in a story in The Kansas City Star. "The rules are explicit about no celebrating, particularly group celebrations.

The Kansas City Chiefs had a lot of celebrations going for them in Monday night’s tough battle versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Though they lost in overtime, 16-13, it was still a good game played by them.
However, head coach Romeo Crennel wasn’t a fan of the team’s dancing that was displayed. They got penalized multiple times and it must have made Crennel...
The Kansas City Chiefs have been featured in several headlines already this week, and as you know there is nothing positive to say about their on-field performance this season. During Monday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chiefs were dancing machines. They were penalized for excessive celebration on a touchdown that ended up not counting. Dwyane Bowe was penalized...
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel says he plans to speak to his team about discipline issues that cropped up during Monday night's loss at Pittsburgh, including an instance in which Kansas City was flagged for a group celebration.
Crennel says he isn't sure where the celebrations came from, but acknowledged that ''with the record we have, they can't afford to be dancing...
For a one win team the Kansas City Chiefs sure know how to dance. Actually dancing may be the only thing the Chiefs can do well this season. Sadly head coach Romeo Crennel does not seem impressed.
Crennel who recently fired himself as the teams defensive coordinator has put the brakes on the Chiefs dancing ways.
So where did all the dancing come from?
“I have no idea,” Crennel...
A recent review of Romeo Crennel’s Tweets from Twitter. **In case you grew up in a cave, this is all a parody and not to be taken seriously. @notforlongcoach: Just got into the Pitt. Watching end of Bears/Texans. So this is what NFL football is suppose to look like. Sunday 9:30pm @notforlongcoach: [...]
It’s almost as great as the cornerback who thumps his chest after breaking up a pass in a game in which his team has been lit up for 42 points.
The Chiefs were celebrating quite a bit Monday night in a game they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on national television. But it wasn’t just the celebration that had coach Romeo Crennel, one of the game’s greatest head-shakers, shaking...
Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel would not commit to a starting quarterback for Sundays game against Cincinnati.
However, it seems like Brady Quinn may get the chance to play again. Quinn told reporters Monday night he has been cleared after missing two games with a concussion. However, Crennel said Quinn hasnt been officially cleared.
I think Brady [Quinn] said that he...
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel wouldn't say who his starting quarterback will be for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Brady Quinn (concussion) has been cleared. SOURCE: Adam Teicher, Kansas City StarFantasy Spin:It shouldn't matter the fantasy owners. We just hope whomever Crennel chooses can get the ball to Dwayne Bowe and increase his rapidly shrinking fantasy value.
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was limited in practice Wednesday because of a thigh injury. However, Crennel didn't indicate any cause for concern, so Bowe is expected to play Week 11 vs. Cincinnati. Source: CBSSports Attached Thumbnails
It's not easy being an NFL head coach, especially when anyone and everyone can create not-so-glowing tribute Web sites demanding your job. Andy Reid, Norv Turner, Rex Ryan and Ron Rivera are just four of the coaches suffering this fate.
Three days after an embarrassing 31-13 prime-time loss to the Chargers their third consecutive double-digit setback Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel removed himself as defensive coordinator, promoting Gary Gibbs to that post, and the team cut starting CB Stanford Routt.
A day later, Crennel announced that QB Matt Cassel (who previously had been benched for Brady Quinn) would...
