Numbers back up Chiefs coach’s unorthodox play calls - KansasCity.com (http://www.kansascity.com/2010/10/28/2367167/the-numbers-back-up-haleys-unorthodox.html)

A interesting article about going for it on forth down.

Interesting indeed; caution to the wind is great when it works, and leaves one incredibly frustrated when it doesn't.

Yeah it'd be nice to kick a FG instead of turning the ball over on downs.

i don't have a problem w/going on 4th down, i just didn't like the run call. much rather see the play action roll out option pass/run.

That's how NC State won the game last night against Florida State. 4th and Goal from the 1/2 yard line after running for it 3 times and getting shut down they bring out the field goal unit. Then call a time out and I remember sitting at the edge of the couch as the offensive unit is out there with the play clock counting down thinking no way, they're not seriously...oh they just snapped the ball.

The entire Florida State team lunges for the line and I think there was a fan that jumped out and bit on the run too...but wait...holy cow! the QB is rolling out and hit a wide open tight end in the end zone to score. It ended up being the game winning score. We need more plays like that....

Okay say we try the field goal and miss and then Jags took over and scored people would be saying we should have gone for it. We had been averaging over 3 yards a carry so why not try a run?

I am all for taking a chance on 4th down when necessary. But I think they should have kicked against Jacksonville on 4th. If I remeber correctly it was a short kick and would have put us up by 2 scores...But who knows, if they got a first I would probably be the first person to say that it was a great call ...

I think it was a 40+ yard kick and as some in here are saying they think something is wrong with Succup and if I remember correct the wind was blowing weird also. Oh well we won so it does not really matter which is good.
