Practice Report – 12/22

From the Truman Sports Complex

Romeo Crennel decided that Thursday was the right day to help acclimate his team to the December weather in the Midwest, so the Chiefs second practice of Raiders Week was outside.

Temperatures were in the low 30s, with a 20 mph wind from the north that dropped the feel-like wind chill to the low 20s. Trust me … it was cold and tough going, especially for some of the rookies from the South who were really getting their first taste of very cold weather. DE Allen Bailey from the University of Miami and Sapelo Island in Georgia appeared to be wearing every sweatshirt he owned underneath his practice jersey.

The National Weather Service forecast for Saturday sounds like a heat wave compared to Thursday. It calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the low 40s, with only a light breeze and no chance of rain.

All 61 available bodies appeared to be working in the open media period, including SS Jon McGraw who has been fighting that high ankle sprain that he suffered nearly two weeks ago against the Jets in New Jersey. As he ran, McGraw still showed a bit of a limp.

    Bring on the Faiders. The groundswell of support for RAC grows with Muir being the latest endorsement. The players and coaches seem to be reinforcing the conclusion many of us have been coming to or had for a while. Crennel may be the best bet at this juncture. I’m not sure how it parlays for the future but he’s a decent individual who seems to have a calming influence and is not as controversial as Haley and appeals to a broader swath of Chiefs supporters. Although I am usually wary when players lobby for individuals I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope for the best. The next couple weeks should tell us a lot more about what our future may be.

    I don’t think Crennel should have to win all three of the last games to get the job. It would be great, but I just want to see the team play well, and to look like it has its act together under his direction. The continuity he provides will be invaluable for the upcoming years. Plus, the Chiefs could keep many of the great coaches they already have on staff. Of course, I’d much rather have the three wins, and if they do that it should be a slam dunk for RAC to stick as HC.
