Todd Herremans’ voice barely rose above a whisper. In the wake of a 26-16 loss to his old coach, on a night where the veteran struggled badly, Herremans stood in front of his locker — the hood of his sweatshirt pulled tightly around his face — answering reporters’ question in a low, pain-filled voice.
“I was just disappointed,” said Herremans, now a few days removed from the Chiefs’ loss. “It was a win I really wanted to get. I was really frustrated by that holding call I had late. Just disappointed, you know?”
Herremans took it hard but seemed no worse for wear this week. He wore the same half-grin that he always does. Was accepting towards the media that approached his back-corner stall, even though he knew the questions would be largely about what is going wrong.
“It’s not like I don’t know that I’ve got to get better,” he said. “I know I’ve got to get better.”
He made poor decisions with the football at times and too many of his throws were off target.
Chip Kelly, though, seemed to come down harder on the offensive line than he did the quarterback following the 26-16 loss to Kansas City.
