KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Coach Herm Edwards is apologizing to
Kansas City Chiefs fans for telling them to -- quote -- "get over
it."
Edwards says the statement angered many fans, and he should have
chosen his words more carefully in talking about fan reaction to
the team's long losing streak.
The Chiefs are 4-10 and have lost seven in a row in Edwards'
second season. They could be headed toward their worst record in
two decades.
A 26-17 loss to Tennessee on Sunday closed out a 2-6 home record
-- their worst since 1977.
Many fans wore bags over their heads, and others brought signs
demanding that either Edwards or general manager Carl Peterson be
fired.
Edwards has frequently praised fans for their loyalty to the
Chiefs. Kansas City hasn't had a local TV blackout since 1991.
