arrowhead stadium with fireworks

Tuesday O/T: That comeback was amazing, but people aren’t hyping it enough.

Arrowhead Guys discuss anything and everything.

It’s hard to put into words how crazy the game Sunday was. That 24-point comeback was the 4th largest in the history of the playoffs, behind the 28-3 Super Bowl, the Colts coming back against us, and “The” comeback.

But those comebacks were much slower, which is typical. In a big comeback it usually takes one team a half to build the lead, then the other team uses the rest of the game to slowly come back. The Colts and Bills didn’t take the lead until the 4th quarter, while the Patriots got their first lead on the game winning touchdown in overtime.

The Chiefs took the lead before halftime.

Just think about that for a moment. With 10:58 left in the 2nd quarter the Texans kicked a field goal to go up 24-0. But by the time that 11 minutes had winded down the Texans were attempting a field goal to try and cut their deficit to 1.

But it gets even better. As if only needing one quarter of play to stage the 4th largest comeback in playoff history wasn’t enough, the Chiefs continued to score on their way to scoring 41 points in a row. 41! In a row!

In the Alex Smith era the Chiefs scored 41 points in an entire game just 7 times (including playoffs). On Sunday the Chiefs did that in 2 quarters of play without allowing the Texans to even get a field goal.

The Chiefs turned a 24-0 deficit into a blowout win before the 4th quarter even started. Even though the Texans had a 24-0 lead in the 2nd quarter they had to abandon the run entirely by the 4th (their last run play was with 3:19 left in the 3rd).

Mahomes had over 300 yards passing, 5 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. You know when the last time somebody did that in a playoff game was?

Never.

Mahomes is the only player in NFL history to have that kind of stat line in a playoff game. We just witness what may be the greatest quarterback performance in an NFL playoff game ever and nobody seems to have noticed.

Just saw this prediction from John Breech – CBS Sports. Titans 30-27 over Chiefs. This is his reasoning, “These two teams actually played each other back in Week 10 in a game where nearly everything went right on offense for the Chiefs: Patrick Mahomes threw for a season-high 446 yards, Tyreek Hill caught 11 passes for 157 yards and Travis Kelce also had an impressive game with seven catches for 75 yards. The crazy thing about that game is that although the Chiefs offense was nearly perfect, THEY SOMEHOW STILL LOST THE GAME. Despite Mahomes’ big day, the Titans still ended up winning 35-32. I’ll give you one guess on how the Titans were able to win that game, and yup, you guessed it, it was Derrick Henry. Henry rushed for 188 yards and two touchdowns in that first meeting, and there’s no reason he won’t be able to replicate those numbers on Sunday.” That’s some revisionist history there. Not one mention of a fumble return for TD, blocked or fumbled FG’s. No, instead we were “nearly perfect” and still couldn’t beat Derrick Henry. Amazing.

yeah, we most def contributed to our own demise. All turnovers are bad, but that fumble was at exactly the wrong moment. Shit happens, but perfect? Far from it. We saw perfection Sunday. 7 straight TDs is fucking incredible. I dont know how to search for it, but how many times has that ever happened?

BleedingRedAndGold

Never in the postseason, TTBOMK.

Taeks like this are why I avoid drawing conclusions without a solid grounding of evidence. Try to, anyway, though I think you’ll admit that most talking heads don’t even try. Once you’ve decided something is so it can be devilishly difficult to break free of that conclusion, even when faced with evidence that falsifies your opinion. Talk to anyone who’s bought into a conspiracy theory, such as a Truther or an Apollo-hoaxer. They’ll go to extreme lengths to “explain away” actual evidence that they are wrong.

This guy could have at least browsed the play-by-play log instead of stopping after the offensive box score stats

No Clark, Jones, and Mahomes do ya?

Leastwise the first two weren’t on the Google stat sheet.

Tyrone

Yeah Clark and Jones were both out

Well, well, well… who’d a thunk

Initial comment WRT 1:54, but I think Derrick Thomas had Elway figured out. In fact, I think DT had a rent-free room in Elway’s head on game days.

The more I look at it and think about it, the more I really think Reid has been playing possum all year. Just do enough to win, keep the nukes in the silo until the postseason, and then release the craken!!!! He tried out the blitzkrieg against the pathetic raiders, when people would be more inclined to blame the shittiness of Oakland in a game that wasnt all that hyped. Then put it back in the barn….waiting…..stalking…..and when the stakes got high enough, fire it up and with only a couple games of film to go on, its hard for defensive coaches to even begin to gameplan. The sales of Mylants are skyrocketing at Walgreens in Nashville near the stadium. Would you want to be the coach tasked with finding a way to stop that?

BleedingRedAndGold

In part, perhaps, but I think there has also been an emphasis on getting a more methodical style of offense up and running, one that can control the clock while still producing results. Certainly Mahomes has talked about taking what is there rather than forcing things deep, and being able to play either way would certainly add complexity to defending against them.

I’ve also thought on occasion that this may have slowed the development of Hardman, but now I’m not so sure. Improving his footwork and learning his route trees don’t strike me as things he has to do in-game, and he appears to have improved on both counts. Learning his reads and adjustments are something else again, but how big a sample size of plays per game are needed for the coaches to teach those things? Also bear in mind that targets aren’t necessarily required to teach those things, just live routes, then hit the film room. Throw at him often enough that he can’t be written off as a decoy and he’ll still get covered, especially considering his speed. Plans within plans.

I think you’re right. I bet he didn’t want to let loose with what he did Sunday, but he got behind and wasn’t gonna’ lose

Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu has very good explanation for not demolishing Deshaun Watson

BleedingRedAndGold

One I agree with, as the game was essentially over by then. Only reason to try to wreck him would be to put a notch on his sack count, not injuring a player headed into the offseason strikes me as an anti-Burfict thing to do. On top of that a violent hit could well have injured Mathieu himself, and I kinda want him healthy for Sunday.

sydenham

On to the next game. Don’t take things for granted. Not sure who the “people” and “nobody” are being referred to, but I don’t follow sports media regularly other than AG for football and we here have noticed. There’ll be time enough to reflect more fully on the comeback crushing of the Texans. The Titans are coming to town and the Chiefs are preparing. Swagger is good but it is built on preparation and attention to detail. This is what Reid and Spags and all the Chiefs coaches and players are focused on, not how come nobody noticed what they just did. As far as they are concerned they probably feel like they ain’t done anything yet.

Henry carried 23 times for 188 yards and two touchdowns when the Titans beat the Chiefs in the regular season, and the Titans rode him all day. In addition to a spectacular 68-yard touchdown run, Henry ran for 10 first downs in the game. Henry only got stuffed for no yardage once.

That seems like a typical Raiders move when you look at the improvement they made on the defensive line this year. Good for the Chiefs, though.

My guess is that he doesn’t want to sit through a rebuild and he plays a position that isn’t easy on the body.

My guess is he feels the effects of the head trauma he’s endured on a daily basis and doesn’t want to make it any worse.

a our part time players looked damn good out there Sunday. Mike Pennel’s name popped up on limited snaps. Dorian O’Daniel had a sack on limited snaps. K Saunders had a serious take down at line of scrimmage on limited snaps. Our backups are looking as good as I’ve ever seen.

Agreed, and what that coach can do with some solid depth. I have been screaming my entire adult life for depth on the D line. We have that and that is a big reason our D looks better. The big uglies need a chance to catch their breath. That and the more depth the more packages you can run especially with a guy like Spaggs calling the shots.
