Chiefs Poll: Would You Have Called An Onside Kick To Start The Game?

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley made a number of gambles in yesterday's game versus the Indianapolis Colts. The early fourth down attempt, starting Dwayne Bowe and of course the onside kick to start the game. 

Todd Haley said that he did his research and found that six of ten onside kicks to open an NFL game have been successful (over the last ten years).

I personally would not have done it. I think the onside screams desperation literally when the game is starting. Plus, onside kicks can be so random to feel like you have control over one is ridiculous. 

The question for the poll today and for you: Would you have made the same gamble with an onside kick as Todd Haley did?
