BEREA -- There is no road map for some things.
So it was last weekend when Kansas City Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel found himself talking to linebacker Jovan Belcher as Belcher held a gun to his head outside the team facility.
Belcher had just shot and killed his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, the mother of his child. Belcher heard Crennels words, then went behind a car and killed himself.
I tried to do everything I could, Crennel said Wednesday on a conference call leading up to Sundays game between Kansas City and the Browns. And I feel comfortable with what I tried to do.
It just wasnt enough.
There is no coachs manual for the situation, and no manual for how to deal with the pain that followed. But the Chiefs played a game the day after Belchers murder-suicide, and somehow won. Wednesday they attended his memorial service before practicing for Sunday, when they will travel to Cleveland and try to play and win again.
Honestly I feel the emotions are still pretty raw, quarterback Brad...
