Chiefs coach hoping to get off to quicker start

^AP-Chiefs-Edwards,0144<
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Kansas City Chiefs coach Herm Edwards is
thinking about changing his pregame speech _ or perhaps giving it
up altogether.
In all four games they've played this year, the Chiefs have
fallen immediately behind.
The last two _ against Minnesota and San Diego _ they faced
double-digit deficits at halftime only to rally in the third and
fourth quarters and pull out a win.
Edwards says the team has been outscorced by 27 points in the
first half this year, but has outscored opposing teams by 27 in the
second.
Edwards says - QUOTE - ``obviously, my pregame speech going out
is not very good. My halftime speech is probably a little bit
better.''
Their rapidly improving defense has pitched a shutout in each of
the last two second halves, enabling a slow-starting offense to
pull itself together in the second half.
