I think what happened was, SD was prepared to call a timeout until they saw that Manning was hurt. They waited to see if the refs would call an injury timeout, stopping the clock, forcing Manning out for a play and saving 1 timeout. Manning didn't call a timeout at first because he assumed that the Chargers were going to call their last timeout. So because neither team called a timeout the refs called an injury TO. Manning knew this would make him sit out a play so THEN he called timeout allowing him to stay in the game.
i agree it was a selfish move. Osweiler (sp?) could have come in and took a knee twice. There was no reason for Manning to stay in the game if he was hurt.
the first game the donks scored less that 30. wonder if the have peaked prematurely ??? bet those ankles really hurt tomorrow
Near as I can tell, 95% of the broncos gameplan is get the ball thrown as quickly as possible.
WOW!!!! Missed the game because I was at work, but it sounds a bit like most of the recent Chiefs games except that SD did not really step up in the 4th quarter. I think SD showed us how to beat these damned donks.....Pressure manning, control the clock, STRANGLE the bastids in the 4th!!!!!
The CHIEFS can beat these damned donks! Every bit as easy if not easier than we have beaten everybody else. These donks are NOT world-beaters!!!!
If we put 28 points on the board we'll beat them!!!!! 24 might do it. 21 maybe possibly.
The big trick next week will be that we can't let them get a big lead early. Gotta play 'em tough from the opening kickoff. Gotta be within 7 at the start of the 4th quarter. Our D needs to be at their VERY BEST right from the start!!!!
We are going to KILL them when we play them in KC, but if we can beat them next week we'll be in the drivers seat!
