Not that important, but...

Did anyone just see the last of the KC/SD game? WTF was Herman Edwards thinking?!? they couldve tied it up and he risked to go for 2 and lost it. Wow. What a stupid move.

CANADIANS = DOUCHERS

I thought the same thing, but they're 1 and 7 plus they already botched one FG in the game.

why? you are in a game that nobody said you can win, why go to OT when you can win it now. much like boise st did to OU in the bowl game a few years back.

I wouldn't have gone for it. But I guess Edwards figured they'd already been given a gift with that PI, might as well see if lady luck was still on his side.....she wasn't.

Id rather risk a whole new set of downs later, than to risk one shot at a tough defense. Hell it took them so many tries just to get it in the endzone, even after that huge penalty that practically put them in there.

but that is the reason right there, it was so hard to get that close b4 why not just take your shot now, because in ot you may never get the ball.

Eh maybe. If I was in Coach Hermans position, I would've gone for the safe PAT.

You can't really fault a guy for going for the win at the end. If he makes it he is said to be a genius. Look at Shanahan in Denver. He did the exact same thing against the exact same team and got the win. San Diego's defense is not what it used to be and when you are looking to spark a team and get things turned around in some fashion you have to take risks.

Yep, under very similar circumstances (being given a chance to tie/win the game in the final seconds when they shouldn't have - Denver's fumble that was ruled incomplete, and the PI call on SD that put the ball on the goal line), too.

I remember reading somewhere that it's statistically better to go for it in a situation like that than to tie it and go into OT. If you tie it, I believe the odds are 49 percent that you'll win. Going for 2pc is 50 percent, if I remember correctly. It's a small chance, but statistically speaking it's still better to take the shot.

What's he have to lose? If they convert, he's a genius. If they don't, then all they did was improve their draft position. Assuming he doesn't get canned this year, he'll reap the benefits. I like Herm and it's not his fault the team absolutely sucks. I think the NFL is better off when KC is good, and I hope he gets a shot to turn them around next year.
