Damn 63, if people want to discuss, complain, whine about yesterday's game up until kickoff of the next game let 'em have it. Avoid the thread. You don't need to drop in on these threads or create an entire thread to tell people it's time to quit talking about a game yesterday. So we're not allowed to discuss the playoff game years ago where we lost because of that kicker that shall not be named? That was over 24 hours ago. Do we also only get to brag about them for 24 hours if they win? Is that a rule too? I played a lot of sports and yes after 24 hours we tried to put it behind us and focus on the upcoming game. We aren't the Chiefs. We're a bunch of has been athletes on a discussion board pissing and whining, bragging and cheering , talking strategy, personnel moves, players we like players we don't. KCSLC2008 and I go back and forth on Alex. Nothing personal. I like him and respect his input. I don't always agree with him but that's the beauty of a discussion board. When the Chiefs lose you KNOW there are going to be negative posts about players, coaches, play calling, time management, etc. because we lost and there are reasons we lost, that why people complain. We're passionate.
From my perspective, doesn't matter whether we won or lost, the evaluations are the same. Smith played poorly (outside of the deep completion/TD run/deep attempt when usually he doesn't throw it), we played conservative after the 14-0 lead, Reid called the timeout at the wrong time (don't let them practice! I would say the same even if he had made the first attempt or missed the second, though I would be happy if the latter happened.), couldn't run stop or run block.
If Tennessee kicker missed the second time those things would remain the same. Our playoff path would be easier perhaps, but the strength and weaknesses would not change. If we had won instead by converting our third down, that would be different, but it wouldn't change a whole lot. I feel that we didn't convert that third down, not because our players can't (except for run block this game outside of Hill's TD), but rather a stupid play call with no good blocking.
