01:21 PM ET 11.09 | The Kansas City Chiefs have 10 more turnovers than any other team in the NFL this year -- 14 interceptions and 15 fumbles -- and Romeo Crennel has had enough. The Chiefs head coach has said any turnovers against the Steelers on Monday night could mean a spot on the bench. "I have to impart on them the importance of protecting the ball for this team," Crennel said, "and sometimes to get that done, you basically have to threaten them. If you fumble it, I'm going to take you out of the game. And they will get the message."

The Chiefs should be more worried about putting guys on the field than taking them off.

The problem - the ones they keep putting on the field suck.

That makes me nervous, with Charles on my draft roster....

Wow, what a threat. All you have to do is fumble the ball and you can get paid on the bench?

Looks like Romeo has been eating a few too many of those turnovers.

I really hope he has to bench a lot of players!

This might be a good tactic. Get the team to focus on basic football--holding on to the ball, for instance--and take the game one play at a time. That might get a better performance. Not enough to win, maybe, but enough to avoid embarrassing themselves.

He might have wanted to stress that message during training camp. Just saying...

Like they give a **** about sitting on the bench. Hey, don't put me in coach, this team sucks and I want no part of it. Pleaaaaaaaaaaaase get angry and trade me. Anywhere would be fine with me. Pleaaaaaase?

Me thinks this guy can't coach. I've heard very little about him being on the block but its beyond time to consider the team ain't responding to him.
