The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web

Morning Addicts! With every weekend we are inching closer and close to the NFL season. We still have a ways to go but the good news is that June is almost over. Tomorrow will be July and then we’ll have just over three weeks until the Chiefs start training camp. Until then, keep your eye on the Dwayne Bowe contract situation If the Chiefs don’t ink him soon. If Bowe doesn’t sign his franchise tender (or a long-term deal) by July 15th, he will have to play the entire season under the franchise tag. Bowe will likely wait all the way until the deadline to give his agent and Scott Pioli time to work out a deal.

The Chiefs are obviously prepared to pay Bowe the $9 million he’d be due if he signs his franchise tag or they wouldn’t have extended it in the first place. That being said, if the Chiefs can ink the Pro Bowl WR and spread those payments out over a few years, I’m sure they would prefer that. Hopefully the sides will get a deal done soon.

Until then, here is your Morning Fix!

There is no doubt Crennel, who went 24-40 as the head coach in Cleveland from 2005-2008, had the support of his players. He had won before as a defensive coordinator, he is well respected by his peers, and he is respected by his players for his above-board and his calm demeanor. He was the perfect elixir after the uneven, high-volume days of Haley.

“Romeo was the right guy for the job,” Gary Horton of Scouts Inc. said. “The players love him and they played for him. But the key is, can that continue with him being the guy? Playing over your head for a coach you like can work for a few games. It can’t work over 16 games. So, now that the interim tag is off of Romeo, the question is can he prove he is the right choice for the long term?”

It marks the 29th anniversary of the death of star running back Joe Delaney. He died at the age of 24 on June 29, 1983. Delaney drowned in a pond at a Louisiana amusement park. An inexperienced swimmer, Delaney died while trying to save three drowning children.

In the four years I have written this blog, I have learned how much Delaney is revered by Chiefs fans. He is a hero and the anniversary of his death is always met with a combination of sorrow and pride because they know Delaney died in such a selfless manner. Even as the years pass, Delaney’s actions are not forgotten and June 29 is always a day of mourning for Chiefs fans.

The addition of Burmeister and Green to the broadcast booth will be particularly exciting for Chiefs fans, said team president Mark Donovan and KCTV5 general manager Bobby Totsch.

“We are extremely excited to have Paul Burmeister and Trent Green leading the on-air broadcast for the 2012 preseason on the Chiefs Television Network,” said Donovan. “Both Paul and Trent have ties to the region and provide a great combination of local Chiefs knowledge and National Football League perspective.”

Added Totsch: “We are eager to begin our 10th year of airing preseason games on the Chiefs Television Network this fall. Having Paul Burmeister and Trent Green in the booth will be a true treat for all Chiefs fans and KCTV5 viewers when they tune into games this August.
