Edwards angrily denies Chiefs lucked into playoffs (AP)

Quote:
Edwards angrily denies Chiefs lucked into playoffs

By DOUG TUCKER, AP Sports Writer
January 1, 2007


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Herman Edwards lashed out Monday at anybody who says his Kansas City Chiefs lucked into the playoffs.

"Let's don't get this thing twisted and think we backed into this deal," he said, eyes flashing. "We didn't lose. We won. We won the game we were supposed to win."

Nevertheless, the Chiefs (9-7) seemed the longest of long shots on Sunday when with several other teams they went into the final regular-season game with a chance to grab the sixth and final seed in the AFC. The Chiefs needed to beat Jacksonville, then have Denver, Tennessee and Cincinnati all lose at home.

The Chiefs did their part, beating the contending Jaguars 35-30 behind Larry Johnson's three touchdowns. Then New England beat the Titans, Cincinnati missed a field goal with a few seconds left and lost in overtime to Pittsburgh and Denver squandered an early lead and lost in overtime to San Francisco.

The players all left the stadium Sunday shortly after the Broncos and 49ers kicked off, thinking they would probably come in on Monday, pack and say their goodbyes.

Instead, many of them spent Sunday night and Monday morning canceling travel plans and they'll begin preparing to play the Colts on Saturday in Indianapolis as seven-point underdogs.

"Those other teams played at home. They didn't win," Edwards said. "That's not our fault. All we can do is win, and we did that and that's why we're in the playoffs, to be quite honest. We won enough games to get in the playoffs. It's very simple.

"Twenty teams are packing up today. We're not one of those 20. I don't want to hear about luck."

In a meeting that lasted only 15 minutes, Edwards pounded on the same theme with his players.

"I hear a lot of things about how we lucked into it, and how we did this," he said. "You know what? If we don't get in, if we don't win, and those other teams do, you know what they'll say? You didn't win."'

The Chiefs survived a rash of adversity and a three-game December losing streak to get to the postseason.

"And this team deserves it," Edwards said. "After everything they went through ... they won their way into the playoffs, period."

The Chiefs' first-year coach, who took the New York Jets to the playoffs three of his five years there, acknowledged he was feeling "defensive."

"That's exactly right. Because I don't want anybody to think that all of a sudden we lucked our way into this deal. We didn't luck our way into it. We won our way into it, just like those other teams had to win their way into it. And they didn't do it, to be quite honest.

"That's how I look at it. And I want this team to look at it that way, too. I don't want them to think that somebody gave us an out and said, `Hey, you can go because we don't want to go.'

"Are you kidding me? There's only 12 spots and we got a spot. We're one of the six. We're representing the National Football League and we're representing the Kansas City Chiefs."

Edwards declined to say exactly what he heard to get his anger up.

"You could sense it. I wasn't born at night." he said. "Believe me, you could sense it. I've been around a long time. You could just feel it."

"I think (the players) got the message. Loud and clear."
In related news, Herm Edwards angrily denies that the sun rises in the east and takes offense at the suggestion that water is wet.

Nice.

Two things that definitely did not get the Chiefs into the playoffs:

Luck, and the ghost of Lamar Hunt.

The Chiefs did what they supposed to do. They won the last 2 games of the season.

Cinci, Jax and the Donks choked.

It's hard to argue with Herm on this. It definitely feels like good luck because it all happened in Week 17, but there are events every week, beginning in Week 1 that radically effect the playoff picture. It's just different at the end because you know what those events are.

Luck plays a part in every football game. Remember last year-it seemed every fumble bounced to the other team.

I agree that teams win/lose all year long, and that of course they'll continue to do so even in week 17. The Chiefs took care of business yesterday, and that was good, but they were still dependent on other teams to get in. Both the Bengals and the Broncos lost in somewhat unusual/fluke ways:

Bengals - at home, blown short FG to go to OT.
Broncos - at home, choke away a lead to the Niners (shaky team), win the toss in OT and have 2 posessions in OT without scoring.

Luck was an element, OK?

Are you even a Chiefs fan or are you just a troll? It seems that every single one of your posts is just negativity. I guess you probably think the Chargers lucked into the #1 seed too? Afterall, there is no way the Colts should have lost to the Texans, Jags, or any of the 4 straight road games they lost. Man, what a choke job that was. Upsets happen every weekend, the Chiefs did their job. I like Herm's approach to these playoffs. Seems like this would definitely help the confidence of the team going into the playoffs.

That's not luck. That's physics.

Football = a game that DOES NOT come down to luck. (Or ghosts)

No, the Chargers took care of business and determined their own fate. They won the games they were supposed to win, the Colts did not. No matter how we won yesterday, we weren't going anywhere but home unless some rather flukey things happened. They did. I'm happy about it, but I live in reality...we got very lucky.

Frankly, I think to deny that luck played a factor is dense. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows you're full of shit if you go with that tactic. The players aren't stupid...they know they got lucky. You can admit it and still say "hey, we're in and we plan on taking advantage of it by playing our best ball now".

lol, ok crystal clear now.

Couldn't the same be said since we won the games we were supposed to win the last 2 weeks, and the Bengals and Broncos didn't?
