Through the seven turnovers of quarterback Tyler Palko's first two NFL starts, Chiefs coach Todd Haley remained his most public supporter and, seemingly at times, his only friend in Kansas City. Haley has declined the chance to gloat about that since Palko won his first game as a starter last week when the Chiefs beat Chicago.

Chiefs Bearly Survive the Windy City

Everyone wants to praise this team. Fans want to hear that Todd Haley had them ready to play, that Tyler Palko could have a chance as the starting quarterback, that this offense did just enough. Wrong on all counts.

Haley on going for the Hail Mary: 'A big play for us'

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley spoke about why he chose to try the Hail Mary pass instead of a field goal on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The touchdown was the winning margin of victory for the Chiefs. (video by David Eulitt / The Kansas City Star).Read more:

Jaws Was Very Excited About Tyler Palko And Other Interesting Bits From The Gruden New Yorker Piece

The New Yorker has an interesting read about where Jon Gruden's career is at today and some entertaining behind the scenes information about Monday Night Football. Even though the piece is 98% about Gruden, a quote from Jaws was easily my highlight of the article. Jaws said and repeats, trying to sell himself on what he's actually saying, "call me crazy, but I’m really...

Expect the Chiefs to lean on their defense for the rest of the season

The plan hasn't changed much, or at least Chiefs coach Todd Haley says it hasn't. And maybe quarterback Tyler Palko finally embraced the plan on Sunday in Chicago. Palko didn't turn the ball over against the Bears, and that allowed his team to hold on for a 10-3 victory -- uneventful and boring as it occasionally was. Haley has said throughout his three seasons that mistake...

Jets have Chief concerns

The Chiefs’ offensive numbers in recent weeks have resembled the sun: Stare directly at them at your own risk. Todd Haley’s team has sputtered since quarterback Tyler Palko took over for the injured Matt Cassel.

Chiefs offense still in search of touchdowns

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It took a desperation heave on the final play of the first half for the Kansas City Chiefs to finally score a touchdown on offense last week. A weight off their shoulders? Sure. The momentum-shifting play that ultimately led to a much-needed victory? Absolutely. A sign that things have finally turned around? Hardly. If the Chiefs want to beat the New York...

Week 13 Observations: All Hail Todd Haley!

1. LeSean McCoy often haphazardly waves the ball around with one hand, seemingly without a care in the world. He seems to have no regard for ball security, eschewing the far-side tuck or the two-handed clutch in favor of the one-handed showboat. But McCoy has not fumbled once in 2011 and has just three fumbles in his three-year career. He knows what he's doing.   2. Leave it...

Fantasy Football Preview Week 14: Chiefs vs. Jets

Kansas City @ New York Jets   The Chiefs come off an unlikely win on the road in Chicago; a win they probably wouldn’t have gotten if the Bears weren’t missing their entire offensive talent base due to injury.  Tyler Palko didn’t really look any better than he had the previous two weeks, but he didn’t make the same amount of critical errors that submarined his team’s...

A Pick 6 of obscure starters includes Palko, Yates

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer With a quarter of the NFL season left, it seems like a good time to talk quarterbacks. There's plenty to discuss, too. It's been a season full of ineptitude and injuries at the most glamorous position in the game, punctuated by the Colts playing without Peyton Manning (neck surgery) and now down to their third...

Week 14 Is When New York Jets Can Make Their Move

Picture this scenario for the New York Jets: at about 7 PM this Sunday night, they sit at 8-5 and in complete control of their own playoff destiny. If they win out, they will be in. No scoreboard watching. No worrying about another team giving them help. It isn’t that far fetched. The New York Jets host the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 PM, in a game that they should win. Considering...

No Letdown Allowed for Jets This Week

When thinking about this Sunday's game against the Chiefs, it is hard not to think about it as a microcosm of the entire Rex Ryan era. On the surface it looks like a game that the Jets should completely dominate to pick up their eighth victory of the season. The Chiefs are playing Tyler Palko at quarterback, Jamaal Charles was lost a long time ago and Kansas City has had a disappointing...
