“It sticks with me, I know that,” Haley said of last year’s 41-34 loss to Cleveland. “Each one of these days is very critical to our success as we go forward. The guys understand that mode that we’re in. We’re playing against a team that really handed it to us the last time we played.”
Misdemeanor charges were filed last week in Jackson County Circuit Court in Independence against Xtreme Clean 88 for failing to make sufficient benefit payments under prevailing wage laws last year at Arrowhead
“The scenario we found ourselves in wasn’t necessarily one we spent a ton of time pondering, being up a couple of scores midway through the game and then the weather situation, which was a real issue. I felt between the wind and the rain, it was as difficult conditions that I’ve been in in a couple of years now as far as rain goes in a regular-season game.
On special teams I’d say the most dramatic change that they’ve made is they’ve revamped their return game. They’ve got two young guys Javier Arenas and Dexter McCluster that can score at any point and they are different styles, but there’re both guys that can go the distance at any point either in punt return or kick return. That’s going to be a really big challenge for us. I think one of the important things that we have to do on special teams is improve our return game both punt and kickoff return and be able to re-establish field position in those areas or use it to make plays.”
Needless to say, Harrison is no longer flying under the radar when it comes to Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley.
“I would say that I’m paying attention to Jerome,” said Haley. ”We definitely have a jersey No. 35 out there and when you have a guy play as well as he did against us, you tend to not forget that for a long, long time.”
