I stayed up until 2am in the morning watching this game since I live in Europe. After the game, I went to bed happy even though we lost. You know why? Because our second and third strings nearly won a game against a good team. We know this game didn't mean the end of the Chiefs season because the way they played, it showed they gave their best. I am also happy because this year we went from being the worse to something very much better.
If anyone needs to apologize it is the refs. Forward progression was stopped on that fake punt. Yeah, behind the line of scrimmeage. The fumble happened pushing for the first down. What a crap call that was. it was either short of the first down or a fumble. The Chiefs won that game. But for those of you thinking we should have risked hurting our starters for confidence. What do you think playing all our backs up and basically beating the Chargers in San Diego did. Yeah, that is right. Even our back ups can win. The game two weeks again Indy was a rope a dope. We played flat and manilla. Expect an energetic rested Cheifs team.
there is no reason for any apology, the CHIEFS rested 19 players as many teams in the same position do. it is the refs who need to apologize to the steelers for screwing up their chance to make the playoffs. the 2nd and 3rd teamers for the CHIEFS played an amazing game and gave the steelers hope where there should have been none. they played their butts off only to have the refs screw up what was probably the best game many of them will be in.
I think it would be saft to say though, We don't have to worry about losing Ryan Succop to the Steelers in Free Agency.
Hope you are right Seek. The game against the colts did make me think we might be toying with them. And while the loss to the dolts yesterday sucked (especially getting screwed by the zebras) it's hard not to be pleased that our backups played a dolts team that had EVERYTHING to play for and only lost because of zebra incompetence. It isn't hard to make the argument that Andy Reid has been turning the playoffs into one GIANT TRAP. If so he is a freaking genius! I hope it is true. One thing for sure.....we'll start finding out next week.
