Crennel hoping to earn permanent deal

The Kansas City Chiefs are entering a pivotal point of their season with three tough games coming up over the Christmas period: two home fixtures against the Green Bay Packers and the Oakland Raiders, followed by a trip to Colorado to take on the Denver Broncos on New Year’s Day.

Having recently dispensed of the services of head coach Todd Haley in the wake of their 37-10 loss against the New York Jets on Thursday – a result which compounded their recent poor performances and means that the Chiefs have now made a disappointing 5-8 start to the season – and as a result, former Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel has been appointed on an interim basis. People looking at the live in-play betting need to remember this.

Crennel has admitted this week that he has designs on keeping the job on a permanent basis, but realises that much hinges on how the team perform over the next handful of matches. Those placing online bets should bear this in mind.

The fact that Crennel already has NFL experience will certainly help his cause, but it is results out on the pitch that will be the deciding factor on whether he is deemed the right man to lead the team into 2012. Stuck at the bottom of the division – despite a surprising AFC West title less than a year ago – whilst injuries to the likes of Brandon Siler, Tony Moeaki, Eric Berry and Jamaal Charles have contributed to their recent demise, they have also made a rod for their own back with a poor disciplinary record as well as boasting the third worst offensive throwing stats in the league.

Scott Pioli, the Chiefs’ general manager, is known to be a fan of Romeo Crennel’s, and given his popularity amongst the players he will give him every opportunity to turn things around.
