The Illiad and the Odyssey were epic reads. The Chiefs 8th drive of todays game with the San Diego Chargers is also epic. It was filled with ups and downs, Heroes lost and stupid decisions. It all started
with a Queen in Greece in the 3rd Quarter with 7 minutes and 24 seconds left at the Chiefs 27 yard line. Almost 2/3 of a Quarter later, after 9 minutes and 35 seconds, the Chiefs had manuvered their Catapult Kicker into range. 58 yards of bloodstained, gore covered San Diego stadium turf lay behind the Chiefs juggernaut. Jacques Cesaire is felled along with Antonio Garay, down goes Anthony Becht and Matt Cassel takes a shot from Travis LaBoy. The Chiefs offensive line commits 3 penalties for - 25 yards, BUT the Chargers gift the Chiefs 20 yards back and two Automatic 1st downs on a 3rd down 6 yards to go and the other a 2nd down with 20 yards to go. Wow. I would try to figure out the Yard per play but It would be too tough even with my calculator. Read and Weep and think about if this is an efficient well oiled war machine of an offense?
