Good morning everyone. NJ Chiefs Fan is going to be out today and perhaps for a few days as he takes care of himself during Hurricane Sandy. If you're the praying type, say an extra one for him and everyone else in Sandy's way.

Here's your Chiefs news for today:

"The big issue is trying to get the bodies to recover, and get the minds to recover so that we can go out to San Diego and play on Thursday night," Crennel said. "That's what the focus is and that's what we're going to try to get done."

It's also a bad week to have indecision about a starting quarterback, but Crennel said he wasn't certain whether Brady Quinn or Matt Cassel would go against the Chargers. Crennel indicated Quinn, who suffered a possible concussion against the Raiders, would start if he's cleared medically.

"As you looked at the Raiders' defense, part of their problem has been the passing game," Crennel said. "When you start game-planning a little bit, maybe you try to take advantage of what has been happening to them in the passing game, and we were able to move the ball some, and they loaded up against the run. That leads you to try and throw it a little bit more."

Crennel pointed out that counting three receptions for six yards, Charles' eight touches were more than any running back.

The Chargers said the sponsors, including the local CBS affiliate, guaranteed the purchase of enough tickets to lift the local television blackout. Those tickets will be donated to local military bases and military hospitals.

This whole thing reminds us of a passage from Shakespeare most famous tragedy:

"So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd, retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title."

My Shakespeare is a bit rusty, but I'm pretty sure he's saying that if the coach were named Frank Crennel, the Chiefs wouldn't be as terrible.

The first convincing victory of the season was enough for coach Dennis Allen to give his Raiders players a welcome day off midway through the season.

The 26-16 victory in Kansas City gave the Raiders two straight wins following a narrow loss at undefeated Atlanta as they are showing signs of hitting their stride following a rough opening month.

"We can bypass this and go on a winning streak, or we can just let go. But I'm not a quitter. Never have been." -- Peyton Hillis, Kansas City Chiefs running back, whose commitment to the team was very much questioned last year when he was with the Cleveland Browns
