Kansas City Chiefs head coach is a native of Western Pennsylvania so he has a connection with guys from the area on the roster.â†µ
Two of those guys are quarterbacks -- Tyler Palko and Bill Stull.â†µ
Haley joked at his press conference on Thursday that because of that connection he can ride them a little harder.â†µ
“Well, that’s why I can yell at Tyler (Palko) and call him names because now I’ve got a new Western (Pennsylvania) guy that I can root for and the old western PA guy, you know, now I can get after a little. The cradle of quarterbacks has now moved into Missouri.”â†µ
That was evident this week when Haley reportedly (likely somewhat jokingly) asked Palko if he were dumb, and then followed it up with that it might be because of where he's from.
