In an effort to stay sane...

I skipped it.

Also, I couldn't get the game, so instead I watched the Browns give up three fourth quarter touchdowns.

But on the bright side, did you see how MY Chiefs played in Oakland?

Happy to say I missed it all, though the post-game analysis makes it seem your Chiefs looked even better than the score indicates. I've read some capsules and seen some play by play charts on a couple games, including the Bills-Jags. I never doubted it, but I clearly made the right choice. Apart from seeing my happiness with N. Robey once again proven out, it appeared to be a frustrating day for all but Vikings fans and you Chiefs fans.

One thing about the Bills - Jim Leonhard got in the game late, and they stopped the Jags (in large part because Mr. 5'6" leapt over a blocker to stop the runner for a 4 yard loss at the goal line just before Gilmore's interception.) He seems to coincide with good results. I think it's obvious, they should cut everyone else and send him out there alone. It'll work.

Weird thing ng is that if KC does make it to yt? He Super Bowk, their bland of football might give them a significant advantage in the event there is lousy weather. No reliance on a passing game combined with realy god defense, patient QB,r and a legit Sing/Dance/Act weapon at RB.

Hazards of tiny touchscreen and limited patience. Though I really do think th at IF they get in, they have a chance.

Your message made as much sense as "I gave u plop on the season" but that turned out to be my all-time favorite post of yours!

I watched bits of the game. When EJ stays in the pocket and doesn't panic too quickly, he can hit some nice mid-distance throws, often hitting guys in stride or in perfect position. Not always, but sometimes he makes a really nice throw. One thing is he doesn't throw many ducks. The D has made big plays all year but has started giving up monster plays in the 2nd half. I hope they sort that out.

The game was kind of like the season. A road win by a rookie QB but over a weak opponent and we were lucky in spots. Not 100% sure how to interpret the game or the season.

(Just want to point out that I am not in fact a Chiefs fan. Nothing against them, but every year at this time, I pretend to be a fan of a playoff-boud team. Pathetic, but other than playoff pools, what else is there to look forward to)

In the past few years, I have irritated my daughter by using the following phrases: "MY Chargers," "My Texans," and even "MY Bears."

Even when I'm kidding around, I curse teams.

I recall something like this. Thank you, as it makes football more fun this time of year.

C.J. Spiller is a total amateur and a complete moron running out of bounds there. Inexcusable.

Can yoy describe the play and context? With the blackout I couldn't even record the game.

Also, looking at the play by play breakdown it appears Buffalo man ssed a lot of downfield throws. Did the misses tend to be wind related or timing related?

Also, Moorman hit a 13 yard punt. Shank? Wind? Block? On the run?

I gather shank.

They were trying to run out the clock in the 1st half with Miami out of timeouts. He took a hand-off and slowly bounced it all the way out of bounds, leaving Miami enough time for a shot at scoring at the end of the half. This isn't even Football 101, this is Pop Warner 101. He's a jock, not a pro.

Yeah, the evidence for that one hasn't really ever stopped mounting, has it?

Small bit of reading between the lines. Moorman sure looks like he knows he is done in Buffalo. On his way out mentioned that on a day like yesterday it wasn't perticularly helpful to do pre-game with wet, heavy balls, and then have to use light, dry balls during game (http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/week-16/moorman-wonders-if-hes-played-his-last-game-in-buffalo-20131222?two-bills-drive). Seems like a swipe at the ST coaches, who probably could have put the practice balls in a box to better simulate the game balls, in a separate blinding flash of the obvious.
