Because they did blow it.

The dropped numerous passes in huge situations, Bradford threw a boneheaded INT, and Spags failed to challenge 3 different plays that all would have gone in his favor and potentially could have changed the game.

I'm not saying Spags is a perfect coach(he's far from it), but I like how he took the Rams from 1-15 to 7-9. A 6 win improvement. One thing right now I don't like about Spags is having the offense going into conservative mode. That's how they lost in SF, in Tampa, and in Oakland.

He was coaching a rookie QB, and he made that QB look like a potential player by keeping him from developing Matt Sanchez syndrome and tossing picks all over the damned place. Playing it conservative was the smart choice.

You must not have watched many STL games.

Bradford averaged 37 attempts per game.

I'm betting that's a rookie record, if not damn close. 5th in the league in attempts.

Spags was far from Herm Edwards in the regular season, he just has a tendency to get conservative at the worst times - and it has cost them 3-4 games this year.

Pretty much this. If the Rams had won one of those 3 or 4 games, they're in the playoffs. Not too mention them having a DL fumble at the 2 yard line in Week 1.

Meh, but in a situation like this I hate that the Hags are gonna get a 4th seed just because they won the division. Division winners should get an automatic playoff bid but seeds should be based on overall record.

I say this in full realization that KC would then have the 6th seed overall and would not host a playoff game. Fair is fair though, why should the Ravens have to travel to our house when they won 2 more games than the Chiefs did?

I know we have this discussion every year, but I still like it the way it is now. Rewards teams for beating their division rivals... if you want a home game, win your division and defeat your rivals.

Plus, this thing works both ways. There have been years, and probably will be years in the future... where wild card teams have played a soft schedule and had a better record than a division winner with a brutal schedule. No way should they be rewarded for that.

This isn't a new development. They've been dumping the ball off all year. I meant to talk about this further in the all-rookie thread, but Bradford was 30th in the league in YPA while completing 60% of his passes. That's almost impossible to do. He averaged under 6 YPA. Derek Anderson was 29th, and he completed 8.3% fewer passes and threw for .37 more YPA

I don't know if the Chiefs were rewarded or not, the things we have to consider is the possibility of the AFCW being one of the strongest/weakest divisions in football.

I hate losing to the likes of the raiders, but I also understand that if the Chiefs decide to stand up to the task they aren't necessarily done after next weekend.

I read somewhere that Haley planned the offensive scheme to baffle our next opponent. They will most likely build their defense to do the same thing the raiders did.

I think the Chiefs let down personally, thinking that they could beat the Raiders at home and coast into the #3 slot.

That's the problem I have right now with playcalling. It's not Shurmur's fault, it's Spags. He lets Shurmur do what he wants in the 1st half, than goes into a shell in the 2nd. Having WRs that can actually catch the ball would actually help, you know.

It's not even that. They didn't use SJ at all. The sports media in STL is on Spags because of that. Running with your damn FB on 3rd and 1 doesn't make any damn sense when SJ didn't have a carry in the game yet. Part of this is on the Rams not having any play making WRs, and that includes Alexander. 2 dropped catches. All of the Rams WRs right now were either acquired via trade, signed off a PS or signed as an UDFA. Unreal. They need to sign a veteran WR(like Rice or VJ) or draft one.
