It was the right call. I was screaming for them to 1) go for it (shades of New England 2002), and 2) run it.

If you can't get half a yard with the game on the line, you don't deserve to win.

Major props to the old man for going for it and for Saunders for calling the right play, not getting cute.

That was a call for the season for both teams. Congrats to the Chiefs on a win.

Gotta love the call - no field goal to go to overtime. Go for the win at home.

Glad the play was called and glad they made it. Otherwise DV would be run out of town for not making it!

But what a call nonetheless. If that play had been stuffed, no timeouts left... then KC is in last place in the division based on Oakland's better division record. That was, to put it mildly, HUGE.

That was unreal... just when apathy had almost completely set in for the Chiefs season... they go and renew my faith. That, my friends, could be the momentum needed to actually wake this team up, and start playing some ball!

I don't care who made the call, but it was the right one.

Lose the game like men, not on the coin toss.

If you win, great.

Props to everybody. From the way they talked after the game. DV made the call and said "let's do it", and asked Saunders and Solari for the best running play to get them 1 yard at the goal line, and Saunders and Solari both told him the same play, and DV said "then let's do it". I'm not sure how many other coaching staffs in the league would've even tried that.

I didn't call it, but I was thinking it very strongly in front of the TV. I was hoping they couldn't hear Randy Cross with his plea for a quick pass. WFT? A dive was the only way to go.

And congrats to them all for doing what the football gods would have wanted.

With Dunn in there, and T-Rich in his bullfrog stance, it was looking run to me, man they just KILLED that hole, Shields took out 2 guys, the Dunn softened it up, T-Rich followed, and LJ just had to jump over Dunn and T-rich, no Raiders were in the play at that point.

Beautiful call.

I believe the sideline chatter went something like this:

DV: I AM Dick Vermeil! And, I see a whole army of my players here in defiance of the Oakland Raiders. You've come to play as free men, and free men you are.

What will you do without TOUCHDOWNS! Will you lose?

Al Saunders:
No . . . we will kick field goals . . . and we will live for overtime.

DV:

Aye. Go for the touchdown and you may lose. Kick the field goal and you'll keep playing. At least a while.

And, losing in the playoffs, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the games from this game to that for one chance -- JUST ONCE CHANCE -- to come back here and tell the Raiders....

That they may stop our goal line plunge.....

BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must confess I 'm the only genious on the board who did not "call it". VD rolled the dice for the whole season on one play. And after the success ? we had at the goal line last week? But I have an idea VD knew things we didn't I know our HS coach would ask our O linemen during the game how they were doing vs their man. And he would adjust our running game toward the hole where we had the advantage. Isn't it ironic we chose to dive over the right side of the line? Did anybody else notice that LJ went over the line sideways rather than just diving straight over the line? Hmmm......that's how Priest does it.

Count Zarth
11-06-2005, 05:53 PM
I thought we would go for it, but I thought we'd throw a quick pass. There was plenty of time for that.

I was shocked we ran. I thought Trent was faking a handoff for sure.

That offense was not going to be denied.

if welbourn could step up his pass protection some, he could be a real force at rt...

sampson would have his work cut out to take back his spot, and that's not even counting black, who i think has continued to improve...

go big john!!

Ahhh, the Chiefs still need a huge penicillin shot to get rid of that VD...And a simple shotgun blast to rid us of CP! :p Oh yea and Skip, how bout that Larry Johnson feller??? ROFL! And before I forget, F*ck Al Squanders!!!

Actually, Dick asked Solari whats the best goaline run play they have. Solari told him, Dick asked Saunders about it. Saunders agreed. So Dick said do it.

As an old guy, I've always been of the opinion that you can't learn to be a RB. Either you have the vision, strength, speed and quickness or you don't. Much the same as you can't coach speed. But I am seeing LJ get better. Probably thanks to Priest's coaching. I saw him pushing on the back of an O lineman today guiding him just like Priest does. and the dive play. But I saw him crash into the backs of O linemen several times today. He needs to stop doing that. Well, I guess he did once when he spun around and broke it to the outside. The guy is still learning. Jim Brown improved his entire career. He started at 4.7 ypc his first year and went steadily upward from there.

I am of the same opinion.

I think there are some things that a RB just has naturally.

You listed them.

Vision, strength, speed, and quickness.

The one thing that I think a RB can learn, and that Priest or the RB coach is teaching LJ, illustrated by his guiding backs of O-Linemen, is patience.
