Countless sports writers and reporters probably dropped the "on any given Sunday" line when talking about the Chiefs' 19-14 win. The Chiefs didn't play a perfect game, but we couldn't have expected them to in a week that saw the firing of coach Todd Haley and the demotion of Tyler Palko. Ryan Succop made four field goals, and so the kicker — and the defense — were the Chiefs' MVPs. It also didn't hurt that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was without his favorite target, Greg Jennings, who sat out with an injury.
There's already chatter that the Chiefs should take the "interim" tag off coach Romeo Crennel's title. Eh, it was one game. Let's not get carried away. Crennel's head-coaching record in Cleveland was awful. In four seasons, he had just one winning season — 10-6 in 2007. And there were a couple of fours and a six before the dash in the other three.
Maybe I'm being too harsh. In a business with a bunch of retreads getting chances, he has had only one go at this. He doesn't come with the cachet of a Jeff Fisher or Bill Cowher, but he also doesn't come with the price tag. And the Chiefs seemed to respond to Crennel. Plus, he has a sweet 'stache.
If you're Scott Pioli, do you hire Crennel?
