That was one excited locker room.
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and it was clearly a huge victory for the team. As the players were walking out of the stadium and into the locker room they could be heard chanting "RAC-city" and one Chief said in front of reporters that they just "hit the Packers in the damn mouth." (Steve Breaston joked the "RAC-city" was the team's new rap song.)
Le'Ron McClain was smiling away as he talked to reporters. Derrick Johnson said they needed this right now. Breaston noted that this is a big win at an important time. Kyle Orton said this was one of his most memorable games since he's been in the NFL.
It's been a tough week to be a Chiefs player after Todd Haley was fired, and all the extra attention that comes along with that. But they clearly respond to Romeo Crennel very, very well. The one theme in the locker room is that the guys were excited to play for Crennel and it appeared they were playing for him. There's obviously a good relationship there if players say things like that unprompted.
So, yeah, today was a good day. We'll be back shortly with a few quotes from these guys.
