Clark Hunt speaks on the field before the Chiefs take on the Panthers

Clark Hunt gave a short interview to the NFL Network on the field before the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Carolina Panthers regarding whether or not to play the game today. Here are a few highlights of what he said.

On who decided to play the game today:

"I decided to leave it up to to the team. I called up Coach Crennel and asked him to call up the captains and see what they thought the right decision was. So he called up the six team captains, who had heard from their teammates, and they unanimously believed that the right decision was to go forward with the game. So that's how we made the decision. It was a team and coaching staff decision."

On the state of mind of the team, Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel:

"I spent the evening last night with the team at the hotel. I wanted to be there with them, to tell them that I love them, to tell them that I know they're going through a hard time, and we really do have a lot of guys who are really hurting."

"There's not a lot that I can say to you except that we're family and we've got to pull together right now and support each other. They're going to come out here and give it their best today but I don't think anybody would fault them for being distracted."

On how Hunt expects the fans to react to the situation:

"Our fans and really the entire NFL community have been incredibly supportive. The outpouring of support from folks across the league has been tremendous."
