No matter which way we play it, the detractors will say we should have done the opposite...

 

That's why a coach needs to understand the flow of the game. It's really not that hard. If you are running the ball well then you continue to run the ball and eat clock. if you're stuffed all game then you add some RB and WR bubble screens in. Any coach paying attention to the game knows what needs to be done to keep the clock moving. Too often they get stubborn and start making boneheaded calls.

Agree, but thats really on the Quality Control coach, not just the OC.  The OC follows the game plan unless the QC coach gives him the info that tells him otherwise.  Really.  I've read Pat Kirwan's book "Take you eye off the Ball, version 2.0.  Early in his career, PK was a QC coach and did just that.

    • Likely before the because of incubation time frame. OTOH, they 'slipped by' safety testing procedures in place at Arrowhead-   "According to Chiefs’ protocol, fans entering the open air field-box should have been tested prior to the game. A Chiefs spokesperson said the fan was not tested before the game based on information they said came from the health department. The Chiefs spokesperson said they do not yet know how the fan bypassed pregame testing."   It appears teams and also their health department have ties/plans for situations like this.   **The team issued a lengthy statement saying the club's contract tracing mechanisms in place, including parking and ticket scanning data and video records show the fan's movements within Arrowhead.   "This process allowed the team to identify the other guests sitting with this individual, the service staff with whom this individual may have come in contact with, as well as any other ticket holders near this person (all of whom I assume are required to quarantine now because of this) at the time of entry into the stadium," the team said.   "Within hours of being notified, the Chiefs were able to pinpoint the names of the other members of the party as well as detailed information about the path and location of entry, and this information was provided to the Health Department. The tracing capabilities at the stadium allow the extension of communication to learn more about the guest's activity the days leading up to and after the game Thursday night."     It's not just about people showing up at the game because everyone knows and accepts the risk. Maybe the workers need a paycheck so have to validate parking, take tickets at the gate, serve concessions, etc and get a paycheck... not Covid-19.  Maybe those other fans want to see a game without being exposed to a virus with no therapeutic cure at this time. Now these people can't even see their families/relatives (let alone friends) for a couple of weeks.   “I want to remind everyone that COVID-19 is anywhere and everywhere. While we’re all tired of it, frustrated and even angry at how it has altered and stricken our lives and livelihoods, we must continue to think of those who have not and will not survive it,” Dr. Rex Archer, Kansas City health director.      
    • You have to make a cut to run around the edge.  North/South Runners aren't usually running to the bourndry and cutting up the field effectively.  Too make and edge you have to run East/West firsts.
    • This doesn't read as having issues getting to the edge. That tells me he's more of a north/south runner and not a "jitterbug" type of RB, so essentially the opposite of Hines. He's not juking anyone out, but that's not the same as being able to take runs outside.
    • 1 week at a time. 
    • Weve got an explosive group on offense. We need the D to step up starting Sunday to really get some solid results. The problems we had last week were not due to being outmatched in any way. The film shows technique and execution issues which are fixable
