The Most Painful Playoff Loss So Far SD, Indy, Philly?

Recommended Posts

.SD got hammered. The Colts got revealed and the Eagles were on dropped pass from possibly winning. To me the Eagles loss has to be the worst for the fans and players.

I think the Chargers loss is the worse one because this may have been Rivers last chance at a ring. A lot of people were picking them to win the SB as well. Eagles and Colts were playing with house money. Eagles just won a ring and the Colts way overachieved.

For me as a fan, it would be the Colts losing. However, I would think that the Chargers loss was probably the most painful. The Chargers were playing very well and it looked like this could be the year and once again they lost in the Playoffs.

Yeah I said Chargers also because of Phil's age. I don't see him getting a ring now.

If the Colts lost the way Philly lost, with a ball going right through the hands of Ebron and getting intercepted, it would be way worse than how we lost to the Chiefs.

Pretty painful loss but we have a very young team with a lot of talent.  Shore up the O Line and add some LBs, get our CBs back (maybe shore that up a bit as well) and we're back in the hunt.  Rivers has 3-4 years left in him barring an injury that takes him out.

I gotta go with how the Eagles lost. I'd rather lose knowing it's coming like our 31-13 loss. I'm not sure I could handle seeing a pass going through a WR hands and getting picked. Although I think the Colts probably lead the league in that category.

The problem is the Pats will not go away and now KC is really good too. It's going to be tough for the Colts to beat either of those teams as well.

I'm of the opinion that losing a close game, especially on one play, is more heart-breaking than getting completely stomped.  It sucked to see the Colts lose, but they were playing so poorly from the very beginning that it wasn't a surprise.  With the Eagles game, Eagles fans actually had hope that they were going to win and all of that hope was crushed on one play.

The Bears loss on a last second kick that hit the cross bar AND the upright..at home..

….is easily the toughest loss by anybody so far..

 

...Do you know how hard it is for your placekicker to hit the goal post AND the crossbar with the same kick?:groan:

Eagles most def... Colts and Chargers were embarrased. But Philly was most heartbroken... how come Foles wanted to get that last play off soo quick? You didn't want to score too quickly and you could've taken it down to the 2 min warning and regrouped. Alshon was probably tired lol

This was puzzling. Maybe they thought the Saints were reeling and wanted one more play before letting defense get a break. Didn't watch after game conferences, so don't know if anyone asked Foles.

It has actually been changed to a block kick since it was tipped.

How do you feel about the game this week? 8 straight Final 4's is unreal but KC will be tough. I have it as 50/50. If it was in NE, Pats would win for sure IMO. With it being in KC it should be a classic. Tom has to watch their Pass Rush, they got to Andrew pretty easily at times and our O.Line is solid. Mahomes is no joke either, that kid has game. Reid normally chokes but he and that team seem real hungry.

I feel more confident since Hunt is gone. He along with Hill just killed the Pats on d. (They been in the past able to contain Kielce.).  I expect a healthy dose of Sony, and Burkhead.. I am also expecting a lot quick passes to Sony this week just because they will be expecting run every time he is out there. On D, they need contain Kielce and Hill.. a lot easier said than done.

 

i like your 50/50 feel that’s probabky accurate! I will say if the Pats are trailing by 3 or less points with 2 minutes to go and Brady has the ball.. they will win the game.

 

my gutt says:

 

Pats 48

Chiefs 41

 

(now watch it be a 10-3 game lol)

It's gotta be the Eagles... that ball went through Alshon Jeffrey's hands at like the 22 yard line. Even if he just doesn't catch it and it falls incomplete, they still have a decent chance to win that game. 

 

The other two games were much more one-sided.

To me, tipped isn't blocked. And that makes it worse.

Do you know how hard it is for a kicker to have his kick tipped and STILL hit the goal post and the crossbar …

 

   I doubt any NFL team has ever lost a game due to a kicker and a kick that did that.

Any time you lose a game you're almost guaranteed to win because the refs miss something so blatantly obvious...it's killer for all involved.

I'd call it a toss-up, but the Pats always win those, too...

Bears were a doink (x2) away from playing the Rams, a team they manhandled defensively. Now that Rams team is going to the SB. Must be tough for them too.

After today, you would have to say Chiefs and Saints--what a shame both games decided on 2 very ordinary calls--the no call for the Saints, and the roughing passer call for the Patriots

Yeah those two games this past weekend take the prize. NO got ripped off and KC had to watch another team get a trophy named for their past owner in their own stadium.

Umm watch that play again. Yes roughing the passer was incorrect but the Pats WR was being mugged as he tried to catch the ball.. so if they had called it correctly the Pats would have ended up with more yardage.  (They also have a make up call the very next play with a very bogus O PI when it was easy to see that Dorsett was actually being held so he couldn’t get by.)

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
