Romeo Crennel's time as interim coach of the Kansas City Chiefs might not produce any tangible growth for the franchise, but it has ended the surreal nightmare known as the Tyler Palko Era.
Palko made four starts for the Chiefs, a stretch that might be best remembered for doomed 15-yard outs. Palko threw two touchdowns and seven interceptions, managing a passer rating of 59.8. The Chiefs' offense looked especially listless in a 37-10 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.
"I've been through a quarterback controversy at another job that I had," Crenell said. "And just waiting and guessing and trying to figure things out, and I just felt like it would be better for (the team) to know there will be a different quarterback."
