Crennel responds to Zimmer's arrest


10:53 AM ET 12.26 | Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Adam Zimmer was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence after a single-car accident in Kansas City on Sunday night. KC Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel was understandably disappointed when asked about the arrest on Monday. "Well, I think we are aware of that situation," Crennel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. "That's being investigated, and we don't have all the facts about that and we'll gather the facts, as well as the NFL, and we'll see where that leads us. We do not condone DUIs; that's not the right thing to do."

Loki: incredible series of posts. No professional sportwriter could have done better.

That was top notch, Loki. I believe that might be the first time I ever sat here reading a whole series of T&R posts to my wife. I have another for you. "Give the guy a pass. It's not like he hired a hit man to murder his girlfriend and their unborn child at a stoplight."
