Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 1/8

Good morning. We have a very light day of Kansas City Chiefs news for you today. Enjoy.

By the time his first week was finished, the Chiefs had beaten the previously undefeated Packers and Crennel had a locker room full of players on his side.

Perhaps general manager Scott Pioli as well. The Chiefs interviewed other candidates seemingly only to verify their initial thought - that the 64-year-old Crennel was the right man for the job.

No other viable contender emerged, and now the Chiefs seem poised to give the job to Crennel in the upcoming days.

Shields and offensive tackle Willie Roaf, two pillars in one of the game's most productive offensive lines with the Chiefs, are among 15 modern-era finalists for enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

O'Brien performed the grunt work of breaking down film, a job typically held by coaches more than 10 years younger. He proved himself quickly, however, rising through the ranks as Eric Mangini and Josh McDaniels had done.

"It was interesting to have someone that age, again with that background, willing and wanting to take that position," said Scott Pioli, the Kansas City Chiefs' general manager, who served as vice president for player personnel with the Patriots.

"That says a lot about Bill's humility. He's got a great balance of humility and confidence."
