Your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Not much new on the Romeo story. My magic 8 ball says the signs are pointing to yes, though.

OK, so what philosophy do Haley and Weis agree on? Of course that ventures into territory that the current Chiefs administration does not like to reveal. The cracks in the wall that give us a glimpse come from Weis’ time as offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots, and Haley’s coordination of the Arizona Cardinals last season and the Chiefs this year.

Their past provides us with this picture of their philosophy: they believe in attacking, game planning for each opponent, using all possible weapons available on the roster, and maybe even creating some new ones along the way. They will take chances, they will gamble and they will always have a trick play or three up their sleeve.

Common Offensive Ground … Tuesday Cup O’Chiefs from Bob Gretz

Todd Haley recently spent some time going over the Chiefs he considers "core players" or those he sees being part of the foundation in 2010 and beyond.

Some of the names — Jamaal Charles, Brandon Flowers, Tamba Hali — aren’t surprising. Others are.

Quarterback Brodie Croyle, who as Matt Cassel’s backup threw 40 passes in 2009, is on the list. So are wide receiver Quinten Lawrence (one catch), defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey (eighth on the Chiefs with 45 tackles), linebacker Derrick Johnson (another backup) and offensive tackle Branden Albert (fifth in the NFL in sacks allowed with nine).

Chiefs coach Haley has some surprises on his list of core players from KC Star

Jamaal Charles had a remarkable run over the last half of the 2009 season. His race to 1,120 yards is all the more remarkable given the fact that nobody with fewer than his 190 carries has ever topped 1,100 yards.

Simply put, nobody in football history gained more yards on less carries than Charles. 

The Historic Season of Jamaal Charles from Bob Gretz

It may indeed come down to Perry Fewell and Romeo Crennel spurning the Giants for other openings, leaving Tom Coughlin to continue his search for a new defensive coordinator. But those two candidates aren't out of the picture just yet.

Despite reports that Crennel had agreed to run the defense in Kansas City and Fewell agreed to do the same in Chicago, neither as of last night had signed contracts.

Romeo not off Giants' radar from The New York Post

Ok. Every time I turn around there is another bit of information coming in about Romeo Crennel. We are hearing everything from that he has already signed with the Chiefs to that he may still talk with the Giants. Rather than post 8 billion different posts, I am going to compile everything here. Newest info on top.

Aaron_Porter_is: Watching NBC run a network is like watching KC Chiefs play football. They have their moments, but it's pretty much a guide of what NOT to do
