It can't be easy being Romeo Crennel these days. Chiefs fans are pissed at the 1-5 start and Crennel, along with GM Scott Pioli and Clark Hunt, are in leadership positions throughout the organization. They're all (rightfully) sharing the blame.
It's a little different for Crennel because he's the face of the organization, the only one who talks to the media at least four times a week during the season.
Crennel was asked how he approaches the situation the Chiefs find themselves in.
"Well, I think you put on the blinders and try to forge ahead because there is nothing that we can do about what's said other than win a ballgame," Crennel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. "If we win a ballgame, then some of those comments kind of get tempered a little bit. If we can win another one, then they get tempered a little more.
"That's the best thing that we can do is to win a ballgame."
Pretty soon, some Chiefs fans will be cheering for the team to lose...you know, once the season isn't a lost cause. They'll be hoping for good draft position and right when you want the Chiefs to lose, to sew up that No. 2 overall pick, they'll go on a tear and win their final four games.
It will be a very Chiefs ending to this season.
