Good morning! We have a light day of Kansas City Chiefs news. I hate the offseason. Anyway, here's your news. Enjoy.
Words like honesty, integrity and accountability were used by Chiefs Chairman Clark Hunt and General Manager Scott Pioli to describe Romeo Crennel earlier this week, but Crennel filled those words with meaning during Todd Haley's final months, weeks and days as Chiefs head coach.
Despite his deep-down desire to one day lead an NFL team again, Crennel was fiercely loyal to Haley though an often-times tumultuous 2011 season. And he stayed loyal until the plug was pulled on Haley's tenure as head coach last month.

You can go ahead and add Brian Daboll's name as a possible replacement of Bill Muir as offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs heading into the 2012 season. Daboll was most recently with the Miami Dolphins as offensive coordinator and has experience with new Kansas City Chiefs head coach, Romeo Crennel, from their time in New England together.

Kansas City stifled the Packers just two weeks after Green Bay invaded MetLife Stadium and piled up 29 first downs, 449 yards and 360 passing yards in a 38-35 defeat of the Giants. Rodgers threw four touchdowns against the Giants for the second time in less than a year to lead the Packers to a victory that was not secured until Mason Crosby kicked a 31-yard field goal as time expired.
The Giants have been candid in saying this week they have studied the Chiefs-Packers game to see how Kansas City succeeded where so many teams came up short.

Schottenheimer coached the Kansas City Chiefs for a decade, and his boss for those 10 seasons was Carl Peterson, an advisor to Ross who tried to recruit Fisher to Miami.
Schottenheimer said Friday that he spoke with Peterson just last week about the possibility of resuming an NFL career that spanned 30 years. Schottenheimer also coached Cleveland, Washington and San Diego but has been out of the league since 2006.
"I told Carl I was going to make an effort to get back into the NFL, and left it at that," Schottenheimer said. "We haven't talked since. Notwithstanding the fact I'm 68, my energy level is very, very high, and I have the same drive and motivation I've always had."
