Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel is once again giving few hints on how long he'll play his starters in the fourth preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on thursday night. So far Crennel has followed the traditional path of increasing the starters' playing time with each preseason week. The fourth preseason game is usually when the starters play very little.
Crennel told reporters on Tuesday that the starters will play on Thursday night but how long they're in depends on how efficient they are.
"Like I said yesterday, what I want to see is I want to see an efficient operation from all the units and particularly the starting unit," Crennel said. "So, if they go out there and they operate efficiently, then I might be inclined to say, ‘Well, we've done something good,' and if we don't do anything good, I might say, ‘We need to do something good,' to build up that confidence level and all of those things that you mentioned."
Basically, he wants to end the preseason on a good note.
Here's to hoping the Chiefs starting offense marches down the field and scores a touchdown. And the Chiefs defense responds with a three-and-out.
