Chiefs' Hali lets play dictate what people think

Tamba Hali is the quintessential reluctant superstar. The Kansas City Chiefs' outside linebacker racked up three sacks in his team's 19-14 upset of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, pushing his season total to 12. He had 14 1/2 last year, a breakout season that earned him a five-year, $60 million contract that includes $35 million guaranteed. By all accounts, Hali should...

Tamba Hali: Chiefs want Romeo Crennel as their coach next year

Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali says he and his teammates want interim head coach Romeo Crennel to get the “interim” label taken off his title next year. “He’s very motivating,” Hali told the Kansas City Star. “He treats us like men. He does expect a lot from us, but he knows what it takes.” Hali didn’t…

Crennel getting endorsements to be Chiefs coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The endorsements for Romeo Crennel to get the Kansas City Chiefs' full-time job keep coming. Offensive coordinator Bill Muir offered unsolicited support of Crennel on Thursday, one day after star linebacker Tamba Hali said he'd like to see the Chiefs' defense coordinator and current interim coach get the job on a permanent basis. "The defense has...

Succop approaching Chiefs record for FGs made

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop can move atop the franchise list for consecutive made field goals if he hits two more on Saturday against Oakland. After a rough start to the season, Succop has made 21 in a row. Pete Stoyanovich has the franchise mark of 22 straight, ahead of such greats as Hall of Famer Jan Stenerud, Nick...

QBs Orton, Palmer both thrown into fire

Romeo Crennel might look brilliant now for installing Kyle Orton as the Chiefs quarterback last week, but the truth can now be told. Crennel was more than a little nervous that Orton's starting debut with the team might not go as well as hoped. "To be totally honest, yes," said Crennel, the Chiefs' interim head coach. "He had a finger (injury), hadn't practiced...

Kansas City Chiefs: Orton shaking things up

I’ll take that bowl of Kyle Orton crow to go, please. About a month ago, I wrote that signing Kyle Orton to the Chiefs was a mistake. I like to think Orton used my column as a nice piece of bulletin board material. I mean, all he did was lead the Chiefs to a victory over the Green Bay Packers in his first full game. Orton’s impressive showing Sunday made the quarterback scenario...

Crennel: Orton has chance to stick if he keeps winning

Kansas City’s win over the Packers may just transform the direction of the franchise for the next few years. Interim coach Romeo Crennel has a chance to earn the job outright. And Kyle Orton could find a home in Kansas City, if he keeps winning. “If we win these next two games with [Orton], and…

Ryan Succop, from Mr. Irrelevant to player of the week

Two years ago, Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop became the last pick in the draft, giving him the dubious honor of being known as “Mr. Irrelevant.” On Sunday, his relevance to the biggest upset of the year helped secure his second career AFC special-teams player of the week award.  In a 19-14 win over the previously…

What a twist of fate: Kyle Orton beats the Packers

What a cruel twist of fate that the Bears’ season all but turned to dust with Caleb Hanie at quarterback Sunday — just after the Chiefs’ Kyle Orton engineered an upset victory against the previously unbeaten Packers in Kansas City. And not only did an ex-Bear beat the vaunted Packers, but it was...
