Your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet! Enjoy...

Now that it appears the Three Musketeers from kingdom of Foxboro are going to be reunited in Middle America, there are some things that you need to know about the last man to join the crusade.

Romeo Crennel is named after Shakespeare’s Romeo. Really, he is. He even has a sister named Juliet.

It’s just one of the little things we’ve learned about the man who will soon be announced as the team’s new defensive coordinator.

KC Star Phot Gallery: Romeo Crennel will be Chiefs' defensive coordinator

Yep, it's Whitlock...

Wake me when the Chiefs sign Tom Brady, the one with two healthy knees and fearless pocket demeanor.

Until then, I’ll take a wait-and-see approach with Scott Pioli’s New England Relocation Plan.

Right now, this smells like a Jackson Five reunion tour without Michael (Brady) or Janet (Bill Belichick).

Romeo "Tito" Crennel, the defensive coordinator, joins Pioli, Charlie Weis, Matt Cassel, Mike Vrabel and ex-Pats to be named later in what appears to be a lame attempt at recreating the New England Dynasty.

Let me apologize for being unimpressed with this lineup.

This Patriots reunion in KC is missing something from KC Star

"I think that Charlie overall is no different than Matt (Cassel)," Haley compared. "He looked adversity in the face here over the last few years and Charlie is real tough mentally. He’s not going to be affected too much by that. His confidence is still there exactly the way that I remember it. He is excited to be a part of the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I think he just wants to be a part of something special," Haley continued. "I think that with Charlie in the mix and what we’re going to get done here in the offseason…this team was getting better and was going to get better if we stayed status-quo, but we made some real positive additions. We’re going to add players to the mix and with the nucleus that we’ve found of players through this difficult year we’ll have a chance to show marked improvement."

Haley On Weis: Notre Dame Didn't Shatter Confidence from RealGM Football

[Tony] Adams was a star quarterback at Riverside Ramona High and Riverside County Player of the Year in 1967. He played at RCC and then Utah State, and opted for the fledgling WFL over the NFL when the Chargers made him a 14th-round pick in 1973. Adams was a tri-MVP of the short-lived league in 1974, throwing for 3,905 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Anaheim-based Southern California Sun.

He eventually made it to the Kansas City Chiefs for four seasons, then had two years with the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts and one more NFL fling as a replacement player with the Minnesota Vikings in 1987.

Mike Augustinos, who manages the "Howl at the Moon" piano bar, 20 East Georgia Street, emailed fans in Baltimore to invite them to his bar. As an Upper Marlboro, Maryland native, Augustinos told them it "sucks living in Colts country." He said the tailgating in Indianapolis is "horrible."

To the tailgaters who gather in the Blue Crew lot, those are fighting words! "There's room to talk about having a Ravens promotion," said the group's Vice President and Media Director, Eric Griffin. "But you don't need to bash the locals."

The Blue Crew concept was inspired by a trip to Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium, which is known for enthusiastic tailgating. Griffin recalls that hospitable Chiefs supporters told the Indianapolis fans that their team had played a good game.
