Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel has issued a warning to all players (mostly on the offense) that if they turn over the ball during their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, in Pittsburgh, Monday night most likely they'll face being BENCHED, according to the Kansas City Star. The Chiefs, who have 29 turnovers (14 interceptions, 15 fumbles) have 10 more turnovers than any other team in the league."I have to impart on them the importance of protecting the ball for this team," Crennel said. "I'll sit the receiver or I'll sit the quarterback." Crennel cited that the fumble by wide receiver Dwayne Bowe in last week's loss to the San Diego Chargers as an example of what will land a player on the bench. The Chiefs, trailing 7-0, had driven 16 plays on their first procession when Bowe caught a short pass from Cassel and gained 10 yards to the Chargers 23, and while he was trying to fight for extra yards, the ball was poked out of his grasp and recovered by the Chargers. "There's a thin line you have to walk as a player..... extra effort trying to get as much yards as you can, but protecting the football. When I tell them to protect the football at all costs, that means get both hands on it, and I've caught the ball and gained yards, get down if I have to.... if I fight for extra yards and lose the football, that doesn't do much good," Crennel explained.

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.

Can I rise to the occasion Juan?
Jon Baldwin was on a tear this Summer and looked like he had a shot at breaking out. Well, the entire Chiefs offense has been in neutral for most of the season and their QB situation is a mess. Still, the Chiefs need to see what they have in Baldwin for 2013 and beyond as Dwayne Bowe will most likely been gonesky.
Crennel said: “He has not produced...
In a season during which very little has gone right for the Kansas City Chiefs this season, running back Jamaal Charles is the exception.
