Todd Haley Uses Old Bill Parcells Trick, Gives Chiefs Players Slice Of Cheese

After the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football two weeks ago, Chiefs head coach Todd Haley gave the players a piece of cheese.

Why?

"Don't take the bait."

Apparently, it's an old BIll Parcells technique designed to remind players against the dangers of getting over-confident.

Considering they beat the Cleveland Browns the following week, the trick worked.
