Chiefs Outside linebacker Tamba Hali threw his support behind interim head coach Romeo Crennel’s candidacy for the job on a permanent basis.
“He’s very motivating,” Hali said. “He treats us like men. He does expect a lot from us, but he knows what it takes to work this business, and how the body feels, and we’re people, too. We love Romeo. He’s one of those coaches who has been a coach in this league. He has five Super Bowl (championships). With that type of resume, you want someone around who can help us get to the top.
“I think anybody on this team would agree with me, if we can keep Romeo as our head coach here, it would be great. We love what he does, and his game plan. As you can see what happened (against Green Bay), he was able to control the clock along with our quarterback. That’s something we haven’t been able to do for a long time, control the clock. That will win you games.”
