Thumbs up To Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. Charles rushed for a team-record 259 yards in Sunday's 44-24 win over the Broncos. He could have returned to the game on the Chiefs' final possession and tried to take a run at the NFL single-game rushing record of 296 yards set by Adrian Peterson in 2007. But he asked coach Todd Haley to take him out and put in rookie Javarris Williams instead. "I didn't want to do it like that," Charles said, suggesting that setting the record in such a lopsided game would have cheapened the record.

Todd Haley was hired as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday after helping the Arizona Cardinals reach the Super Bowl as coordinator of one of the NFL's most exciting offenses. Haley, 41, joins a team that went a franchise-worst 2-14 under coach Herm Edwards, who was fired Jan. 23. Edwards lost all but two of his last 25 games and launched a rebuilding project that made the Chiefs the league's youngest team this season. Scott Pioli, hired last month as general manager, said at a news conference that Haley has a "strong understanding of players and the type of players that create championship football teams.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Larry Fitzgerald tied an NFL conference championship game record with his three touchdown receptions, of 9, 62 and 1 yard, yesterday against the Eagles. The 62-yarder came on a gadget play, after quarterback Kurt Warner lateraled the ball to halfback J.J. Arrington on an apparent sweep around the right end before Arrington stopped and passed back to Warner, who had drifted deep to the left. Warner lofted a pass toward Fitzgerald, who made the catch after the Eagles' Quintin Demps fell down while trying to find the ball.

Going 2-1 and stunning then-undefeated Green Bay as Kansas City's interim head coach meant a lot more than gratification for Romeo Crennel. It also persuaded the Kansas City Chiefs to give the affable, 64-year-old defensive specialist a second chance to be an NFL head coach. The Chiefs announced Monday that Crennel was the official replacement for the fired Todd Haley, removing the interim tag he bore for the last three weeks of the season. "The three games had a lot to do with where we arrived at this decision," general manager Scott Pioli said.

Pregame Watching the Fox pregame show, and wondering how long this yuk-fest format will endure. If I wanted to see a handful of old guys in garish vestments gesturing wildly and saying little of importance on Sundays, I'd go to church. Could have saved myself an hour of pain. CBS apparently doesn't think much of this matchup. Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots? Now it's three hours of pain. What, Jamie Farr and Gary Bender weren't available? Eagles look better right off the bat. Sheldon Brown isn't wearing a mask.

Eagles guard Shawn Andrews will miss the Pro Bowl because of a neck injury. He will be replaced by Chicago Bears guard Ruben Brown, who was added to the NFC's roster yesterday. Andrews suffered the injury - a bruise that will not affect his play next season - just before halftime of the Eagles' second-round playoff loss to New Orleans on Jan. 13. The 24-year-old Andrews was the Eagles' first-round draft choice in 2004. He was voted as an alternate to the NFC's Pro Bowl squad last season.

Former Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress apologized to his family and tearfully kissed his pregnant wife and young son goodbye yesterday in court in New York before he was led away to prison to begin serving a two-year sentence on a weapons charge. Burress, at the time a star receiver with the New York Giants, was at the Latin Quarter nightclub in Manhattan last November when a .40-caliber gun tucked into his waistband slipped down his leg and fired, wounding him in the thigh. He told Judge Michael Melkonian before sentencing: "I want to apologize to my family.

Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora returned to the New York Giants complex last night and apologized for walking out on practice earlier in the day. Umenyiora, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, attended meetings in the morning at the team's headquarters. He then left without talking to head coach Tom Coughlin and didn't return for the workout. "I made a mistake by leaving the facility," he said in a statement issued by the team last night. "I was wrong.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was told to stay away from the team yesterday while the NFL and the Chiefs complete their investigation into his use of a homosexual slur twice this week. Johnson issued an apology and a national gay rights advocacy organization called on the league and the team to take action against the two-time Pro Bowl back. The latest chapter in Johnson's stormy career began Sunday night when he questioned coach Todd Haley's football credentials on his Twitter account.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nobody is identified with Kansas City football or bleeds Chiefs red more than Len Dawson. The Hall of Fame quarterback played 13 seasons with the Chiefs until the age of 40. Now 78, he is still the radio color analyst for the Chiefs and also does some local TV work. And Dawson, like so many around the Kansas City area, is enjoying the early success of a Chiefs team that is 2-0 after a 2-14 season. The Chiefs look to surpass last season's win total with Thursday's highly anticipated matchup at Lincoln Financial Field with the Eagles.

THE EAGLES finally received permission to talk to Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Monday, something that didn't really inspire Eagles fans who watched the Bengals' 19-13 loss to the Houston Texans on Saturday with an eye on Gruden. Gruden, 45, was a sought-after head-coaching candidate a year ago, after his first year in Cincinnati, but signed an extension with the Bengals. This year, his name again is hot, with the Cardinals also expressing interest. Maybe teams feel there is only so much a guy can do with Andy Dalton.

What now? After channeling their energy into recruiting one of the bright minds from the college game and ultimately missing out, the Eagles are on to what can only be described as Plan B. There are still a number of attractive candidates for the Eagles to pursue as their next head coach, and in the end, the Eagles will probably claim that they got their man. But it will be difficult for them to deny that Chip Kelly and Bill O'Brien were their...

Clearly, the Kansas City Chiefs have not paid attention to the fine details of Andy Reid's tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Otherwise, there is no way they would have let general manager Scott Pioli walk out the door moments before Reid walked in as the new head coach on Friday. I'm not saying Reid was a bad hire. Despite the way things ended, his resumé over 14 years as the Eagles coach is impressive. He didn't win a Super Bowl, but he won more games than any coach in Eagles history, made the playoffs nine times, reached five NFC Championship Games and made it to a Super Bowl.

All signs point to Kansas City as Andy Reid's next stop. The ex-Eagles coach reportedly was "on the verge" of signing a deal with the Chiefs after meeting with the Kansas City brass for nine hours Wednesday in Philadelphia. "The major issues have been discussed and agreed upon," a source told ESPN. Some reports said that Reid still planned to interview with the Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers, but neither team has confirmed such a meeting. Arizona president Michael Bidwill had said that the Cardinals would interview Reid, but those plans appear to have been put off for now. The Cardinals already interviewed Ray Horton, their defensive coordinator, and reportedly have scheduled an interview with Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Quite a day for NFL sacks. Seven coaches and five general managers were fired Monday in a flurry of pink slips that were delivered the day after the regular season ended. There could be more, but so far the sent-packing scorecard looks like this: Lovie Smith in Chicago and Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona, coaches who took teams to the Super Bowl; Norv Turner in San Diego; Pat Shurmur in Cleveland; Romeo Crennel in Kansas City; Chan Gailey in Buffalo; and, of course, Andy Reid with the Eagles.

This is a post from Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagles blog, Eagletarian. LIKE EVERYBODY else, I'm trying to think about what the Eagles might do when this disappointing season ends and Andy Reid's 14-year coaching tenure presumably ends. I'll be really surprised if the choice is some guy who won a Super Bowl elsewhere - Jon Gruden, Brian Billick, even Bill Cowher, who tends to be more highly regarded than Gruden or Billick in NFL circles. A couple of reasons there: 1. Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman think of themselves as bold, innovative people; they are unlikely to settle for trying to recreate what someone did somewhere else, and more important, 2. IT NEVER WORKS.

Fourteen years ago, the Eagles were 1-7, all but lifeless and with a lame-duck coach in Ray Rhodes. The drumbeat for who would be the team's next leader didn't really start until late December. Andy Reid's name wasn't mentioned until a week before he was hired on Jan. 11, 1999. But that was then, and this is now, with Reid just a couple of more losses from not returning, and fatigued fans already thinking about his successor. So here's a look at some of the candidates to replace Reid - should he go - with the understanding that we're still some distance from a new regime.

THE KANSAS CITY Chiefs made another round of sweeping changes Monday in an attempt to lift themselves out of a seasonlong funk. Coach Romeo Crennel sacked himself as defensive coordinator, and plans to spend more time with the team's inept offense, while cornerback Stanford Routt was waived and defensive tackle Shaun Smith was signed. Crennel had been juggling head coaching and coordinator duties since taking over on an interim basis when Todd Haley was fired in December. Gary Gibbs will take over as defensive coordinator.

For seven weeks, Eli Manning's Giants had one of the most lethal offensive units in the NFL. But for the second straight week, one of the most clutch quarterbacks in the game looked more like a mere mortal. In a 24-20 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Manning completed just 10 passes in 24 attempts for 125 yards and one interception, and nearly threw another to cornerback Ike Taylor that he dropped in the end zone. After completing just 15 of 29 for 192 yards against the Cowboys the week before, and failing to throw a touchdown pass in either game, it's safe to say that the Giants quarterback is causing an unusual amount of concern.
