Man, I still get pumped up everytime I see that play. Makes me remember how insane I went when I saw it happen for the first time.

Also forgot that that was the game after Trent's dad passed away.

Also, Larry Johnson's first start of that great year.

By far the most memorable game of 2005.

Now they are playing the Chiefs vs. Donks game at Arrowhead on NFL Network. That was another great game.

One of the best ever, Mr. SNR. I still find it difficult to believe we missed the playoffs with that team.

I dont find it difficult considering our defense cant stop good teams on the road. You must do that to get into the postseason. In fact I wonder what DV's record was (During his time in KC) on the road?

I know, Mr. BSPimpDude, I know. The defense sucks worse than a plague of starving Venezuelan leeches. That's pretty well established.

It's just that our offense has been so darn good that one would think we could have gotten in the second season more than once. 10 wins after all. Most years, that's enough.

I don't know the numbers, but I imagine that DV's road record was pretty darn bad. Near the bottom, probably, given our home field advantages.

A fluke year where a 10 win season doesn't get into the playoffs. :cuss: Freaking AFC South had to suck last year.

FWIW The Chiefs road record under DV was 16-24

Thanks Mr. OldTownChief. I looked at the last 5 years w/l on the road. Atlanta had a tie on the road I didn't count, otherwise, I think these numbers are fairly accurate. The Chiefs win percentage is 40% ... down among the worst in the league.

W L
Atlanta 19 20 49%
Arizona 9 31 23%
Baltimore 13 27 33%
Buffalo 12 28 30%
Carolina 19 21 48%
Chicago 15 25 38%
Cincinnati 15 25 38%
Cleveland 15 25 38%
Dallas 12 28 30%
Denver 19 21 48%
Detroit 5 35 13%
Green Bay 21 19 53%
Houston 8 24 25%
Indianapolis 27 13 68%
Jacksonville 17 23 43%
Kansas City 16 24 40%
Miami 17 23 43%
Minnesota 11 29 28%
New England 26 14 65%
New Orleans 19 21 48%
NY Giants 17 23 43%
NY Jets 17 23 43%
Oakland 14 26 35%
Philadelphia 27 13 68%
Pittsburgh 26 14 65%
St. Louis 18 22 45%
San Diego 16 24 40%
San Francisco 13 27 33%
Seattle 18 22 45%
Tampa Bay 20 20 50%
Tennessee 18 22 45%
Washington 15 25 38%

EDIT: I think that it's interesting that, had we lost one more game over that time period, we would be tied with teams the likes of Chicago, Cincy, and Cleveland. Also, it's strange to think that Detroit has only won 5 road games in the last 5 years.

When you mentioned "the call", I thought you were talking about that tripping call that kept our final drive going.

we've also played more back to back road games then any team in the last few years..and again this year. I'm sure the NFL is aware of the percentages for that type of schedule.

Link, or just BS?

You can't tell me that being in the middle of the country, the Chiefs have a tougher road schedule than the coastal teams. Seattle probably had the most miles traveled this past year, yet they somehow managed to make it to the Super Bowl.

Excuses, excuses...

look at the schedules....not miles logged.

It's not an excuse, it's hard to win back to back road games...the stats prove it. If we can be successful playing this kind of schedule, we'll be primed for the playoffs.

No, what's tough to do is win three straight road games. When was the last time the Chiefs had a three game road trip? I can't remember it happening in the past 17 years.

Two road games in a row is nothing. You've been reading Bob Gretz' "excuses-are-us" articles for too long.

NO Defense dude. Gotta knock the other guys d*ck in the dirt when it matters and Vermeil didn't love the D properly. Sorry to say D died in KC when DT died. Hopefully Herm will bring it back before our O gets old. 2 year window max. in my opinion.

It was a great and gutsy call though even if they wouldn't of made it I would of respected Vermeil for having a killer instinct with the best O line in the game at home.

2000. We had three straight west coast road games, @ Seattle, Oakland and San Fran. Followed up by a home game vs Buffalo, then a road game @ San Diego and a road game @ New England.

and how often does a three game road trip happen? in the playoffs? and how many times has that happened?

go look up the win percentages of back to back road games for any team, not just the Chiefs.

This has nothing to do with Gretz or his articles. It's no secret that you are pessimistic about the Chiefs.

Now that was a killer schedule. Still finished 7-9 in the first year without DT and with dickhead at QB. Yet Gunther was a terrible HC. :rolleyes:

I never had a doubt that LJ would score. He's a big guy behind a that offensive line. Plus the Raiduhs defense sucks.
