Chiefs Players Seem To Be On High Alert


Here's a snippet of what Todd Haley had to say this afternoon about guys that talk out-of-line so to speak:

"...I want clips and articles (from around the league) where guys have spoken out of turn and what the result is and I read those to the team and talk about them. To see the results of it, which generally aren’t really good..."

Based on that statement, it's reasonable to think that Haley, who used the words "family business" in that press conference, addressed the team regarding the Dwayne Bowe comments. He probably told them that it's important to understand who you're talking to and what you say.

It's also reasonable to assume he instructed them to say 'No comment' to any questions about Bowe. The (other) AP article this afternoon lead off talking about all the 'No comments' around the locker room.

Take Jamaal Charles for example. 610 Sports has audio of him answering some questions after practice today. Here are three of the questions in the two-and-half minutes of audio:

How are you physically?

I really don't want to talk about my physical but I'm feeling good right now.

(Charles said a little more about his shoulder on Saturday.)

Is the camaraderie at all affected by the comments [made by Dwayne Bowe]?

No comment.

What Page not being here? What kind of message does that send?

I don't know about that. I don't want to talk about that situation either.

In other words, don't expect a lot of interesting stories from Chiefs players anytime soon. The players have been put on high alert.
