Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn and head coach Romeo Crennel both made very interesting statements regarding the horrific Jovan Belcher story.

I can’t speak more highly about the way Romeo Crennel handled this horrific story involving Jovan Belcher.  Crennel witnessed Belcher, a former Kansas City Chiefs’ linebacker, commit suicide at team headquarters early Saturday morning after he shot and killed his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins.  Belcher was 25 years old while Perkins was 22.

Crennel was simply unflappable while addressing his team and the media following a 27-21 win by the Chiefs against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.  It wasn’t even two whole days since Crennel witness a nightmare.  He kept his emotions in check and was an absolute rock during an extremely tough time.  Hats off to you, Romeo.

Quarterback Brady Quinn made some very eloquent statements on Sunday as well.  Quinn talked about the importance and being there for your friends in real life instead of constantly scrolling through social networking sites on cell phones.  Quinn might not have been able to prevent Belcher from committing a murder-suicide, but it’s an important message overall; what can we do to be a better friends to the people in our lives?  It’s a very smart thought.
