Slap In The Face
Members of the media and social media users alike thought it was “classless” or showed “poor sportsmanship” to have Dontari Poe throw that final touchdown. I don’t know about you guys, but big guy touchdowns are my favorite.
People that say head coach Andy Reid lacks imagination in his play calling no longer have a leg to stand on. The only point I agree with naysayers of the play on is that they should have waited to pull that trick out.
What most people fail to think about is the fact that Denver called a timeout right before it happened. If you are still calling timeouts, then the game is not over in your eyes.
As the playoff scenario stands now, the Kansas City Chiefs could have to play New England and/or Pittsburgh on the road. That’s a play that the team could have used to get a needed touchdown in one of those games.
People are upset because they think the Chiefs should have just run a regular play with the game being in hand. What most people fail to think about is the fact that Denver called a timeout right before it happened. If you are still calling timeouts, then the game is not over in your eyes.
Play until the final whistle and if they still want to play, I see no reason why we should not score by any means necessary. Everyone remembers the playoff game against the Colts a few seasons ago, right? The Chiefs didn’t score enough points and it cost them dearly.
No game is ever over until there are double zeroes on the clock. Andy Reid should know that as well as anyone. When he was in Philadelphia, the Eagles were down 21 points in the fourth quarter.
There was less than eight minutes left on the clock and the Eagles went on to score four straight touchdowns. The Miracle at the New Meadowlands was culminated by Desean Jackson’s walk-off punt return. There was not as much time left in this game as that one, but the point is it’s not over ’til it’s over.
