Now, I'm sure all of you are either thinking, "well, there could of been many plays that could have changed the outcome," or you have your own idea of which plays could have created a W for the Chiefs this afternoon. Here is how I see it.
14 secods left in the second quarter with no timeouts. Why in the hell didn't we take a shot at the endzone? At worst, it's an in interception and the Raiders most likely kneel the ball to run the remaining time off. If the pass is incomplete, we kick a field goal +3= 13-13 and overtime. I believe we take them in Overtime. My point is, the play call was off in my opinion. Why take the risk of not being able to get out of bounds(like we did). If I'm Todd Haley(which I'm not, just hypothetical here), I tell Cassel to get the ball in the endzone and if nothing is there...throw the ball away and we kick the field goal. Agree/Disagree? The second situation, or situations was one of the two picks Matt had today. The first was a bad throw, so I don't think we'll take that one as the example, but rather the almost dropped pick by Huff. If Huff doesn't intercept that overthrown ball, then we probably go down and atleast get a FG and possibly the Touchdown. As I remember it, we had a pretty succesfull drive going before that freakish interception that was almost dropped if you saw the replay.
So, there it is.....the situations that could have made the differnce at Arrowhead today.
Those are two situations that definantely made a difference. There are countless petty things like bad officiating that I will only mention once because the coaches and players determine who wins, not the officials.(well, 95% of the time)If you have two you are thinking of, please post to compare. We shoulda, coulda, woulda won this game by atleast 3. What do you think?
