How will the Chiefs find a capable 20-carry per game runner to serve alongside Charles? There are a number of routes the team can take.
Last week, general manager Scott Pioli mentioned Battle among the players he’d like to bring back to Kansas City next season. In what role would Battle serve? Did his 2011 season earn him a shot as the thunder to Charles’ lightning or is he viewed as a situational short-yardage runner?
I realize it’s only January, but nothing should come close to touching Kent Babb’s story in Sunday’s Kansas City Star about the work atmosphere at 1 Arrowhead Drive. Of note, former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley’s claim — whether real or paranoid — that his phones — yes, even his personal cellphone — may have been tampered with by the organization. He wasn’t the only one, as 610 Sports’ Nick Wright has pointed out in the past few days.
There is a strong chance this will be Crennel’s final job. It has been an incredible journey for the Lynchburg, Va., native who played offensive and defensive lineman at Western Kentucky. As he begins his second chance, Crennel reflected on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday this week. Crennel was a 20-year-old college student when King was killed.“It was an emotional time.” Crennel said. “As a minority, I was worried about the progress Dr. King made would be stopped because of his death, but the movement kept going and I’m sure he would be very proud of it. I’m pleased it kept going and I’m very appreciative of every chance I’ve gotten because of his hard work.”
