The Morning Fix

”Things show up in our lockers and you get excited about some, not so excited about others,” Haley said. ”I thought that was a good hoodie. Now that I hear that opinion, I’d better adjust.”

No word on what Haley will wear for Sunday’s game against the Chargers in San Diego. But the Chiefs will wear their red jerseys instead of the white they usually wear in San Diego.

Despite showing signs of progress during practices this week, Chiefs first-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin will miss his third-straight game because of a lingering thumb injury. Baldwin did not participate in the Chiefs Friday afternoon practice and was officially ruled out for Sunday’s game late in the afternoon.

Crennel has coached good defenses and poor ones, been the coach of a Cleveland Browns team that seemed to have little chance of turning the corner, and now he’s the leader of a defense that seems to possess talent but clearly lacks answers. The Chiefs have one sack, two interceptions — though Jon McGraw fumbled shortly after his pick last week — and one missing rising star at safety, Eric Berry, who tore the ACL in his left knee during the first game.
