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 for taunting after scoring another touchdown — which also didn’t count. And then there was the Kid N’ Play dance that a couple of Kansas City players busted out after sacking Ben Roethlisberger.
The now 1-8 Chiefs obviously planned some of these antics before the game began, and head coach Romeo Crennel is not amused.
“I have no idea,” Crennel told the Kansas City Star when asked what inspired the dance party. “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 don’t expect it to happen again.”
The Chiefs are so bad that they couldn’t even take advantage of an ice-cold Byron Leftwich being tossed into the lineup after Roethlisberger went down. They ultimately lost in overtime, cementing themselves as one of the worst teams in the NFL. No team should be dancing as much as Kansas City did on Monday night, let alone one that’s season has been over for several weeks.
