Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel was asked after the game why the Chiefs didn’t get Charles more involved, and he said he doesn’t know. Why did the Chiefs only give their best offensive playmaker, running back Jamaal Charles, five carries in Sunday’s loss to the Raiders? Good question. So why did Jamaal Charles barely get used? This is wonderful. This is Romeo Crennel at his corpselike finest, making inexplicable moves without a plan, without even a fake plan to offer reporters and make it look like he has some idea of what he's doing. That would be the star running back getting just five carries all day, and the head coach not really having much of an answer. I mean, at least say Charles was banged up or somethingit's the only excuse that could make a lick of sense. Brady Quinn beat out Matt Cassel in the saddest quarterback competition everand then left the game with a concussion after going 2-for-4 for a single yard.
