Stanford Routt out to learn Chiefs Way

12

For those of you [coughupscough].. Ahem, excuse me. For those of you that put way too much emphasis on Routt's penalties. I've heard more good things about our #2 corner in this training camp than I have in season's past. Is it just me? ---- A Shield-emblazoned envelope greeted Kevin Ross in his office every Monday morning. And the former Chiefs cornerback knew that its contents – a mea culpa about Stanford Routt’s penalties the day before – would remain unchanged from the previous week’s envelope. As Routt’s secondary coach in Oakland, Ross was left wondering if the Raiders logo on Routt’s helmet triggered more pass interference calls than his play on the field did. "The league admitted that half of his penalties weren’t penalties at all," said Ross. "You start to wonder if it’s because he was wearing Silver and Black, and the thing is, those penalties can lose you ball games. Stanford had to have thick skin to come back the way he did each week."
