Romeo Not Happy With Celebrations

For whatever reason, probably because they were on national television and it was Monday Night Football, the Chiefs went a bit daffy in Pittsburgh with celebration.

Tamba Hali and Justin Houston combined on a sack of Ben Roethlisberger and there was some sort of Riverdance activity between the two. Houston picked up what appeared to be a fumble and returned it for a touchdown and almost the entire defense became dancing fools in the end zone, drawing a 15-yard penalty.

“With the record we have, we really can’t afford to be dancing or anything like that,” Crennel said Tuesday evening. “Our focus should be on trying to play good football and trying to do everything to help the team win and not do things that could cost the team field position, give a good opponent some momentum, those kind of things.

“Our guys know the rules and they should not have done it … I will talk to my players about that. I don’t expect it to happen again.”

As of early Tuesday evening, Crennel had not yet received word that QB Brady Quinn has been cleared by doctors to return to contact and participation in games. Quinn said after Monday night’s game that concussion specialists in Pittsburgh said he was ready to play.

“He is not officially cleared, so I can’t make a determination until I can find out exactly what the prognosis is for him,” Crennel said. “I think he’s ready to go.”

From the game, Crennel listed the injured players as WR Jon Baldwin (neck/head), TE Jake O’Connell (ankle), NT Dontari Poe (knee), RG Jon Asamoah (hand) and WR Dwayne Bowe (thigh).

    Reflecting a day later, the celebrations were more disappointing than the loss. I didn’t give them a chance against the Steelers and I was happy about the Chiefs being in the game, including tying it at the end. But the Footsie thing after the sack? WTF? And the circle jerk after the fumble return? You’re 1 & 7! Cut the crap! (I actually yelled that at the TV).

    Go CHIEFS!

    I agree. That stuff is bush league. besides, the only player I saw that had reason to celebrate anything was Derrick Johnson. He played like he was on fire and showed the rest of the team how they should all play.

    Good ol Romeo…he’s going to talk to the players about that. Can’t imagine why he can’t win a football game and has no control over the team. The first dance should have been addressed immediately and adamantly…not a talk next Thursday. Panzy a$$.

    Bob; Great Assessment,”dancing fools”. They looked like a bunch of 3rd graders on the playground. For a now 1-8 team I found it very embarrasing. I went back and watched the game a 2nd time on my DVR and tried to do my own analysis. Way too many dumb mistakes. It wasn’t just Cassel it was alot of dumb bonehead mistakes thru out the game. This team has NO DISCIPLINE. Moeaki’s push off. Hali’s late hit on the QB’s head. Group celebration in the end zone. Cassels bad throw for interception. Bowe’s dropped passes. Even Gruden commented on that all evening. We truly need 3 simple things. New HC, new GM and one elite QB. If we would have had those things on monday night we would have won that game.

    Not surprising. Grandpa Walton hasn’t got this team under control.
