Nice to know some things never change

Yeah. What was that before and after the 2:00 warning?

Anonymous I Concur January 16, 2016 8:20 PM  

You would think someone would mention it to him. Maybe its like halitosis or having your zipper open. Everybody just hopes nobody notices.

Nate is rude.

I've never understood why coaches don't either play enough games of Madden in the offseason to get clock management down cold, or hire a clock management specialist to advise them.

You have no idea how painful that was to watch for a KC fan...

Blogger frenchy January 16, 2016 8:50 PM  

I feel your pain, and yes I do. As a Steeler fan, I watched us do something as stupid this year. Had about 37 seconds before the two minute warning and Tomlin would not call a time out. Let the clock get down to 2:00 and for some reason conserved all 3 timeouts for after the 2:00. Well, it did not work out well.

Blogger eharmonica January 16, 2016 8:53 PM  

Gotta blame Smith too. It's like he thought it was halftime.

Blogger Gapeseed January 16, 2016 9:01 PM  

You would have thought that Super Bowl Donovan McNabb was under center.

Anonymous Cash January 16, 2016 9:07 PM  

Maybe it wasn't McNabb's fault after all.

Andy is a fine coach until the game starts.

Blogger Guitar Man January 16, 2016 9:09 PM  

It was a beautiful decision on his part.

Blogger ray January 16, 2016 9:21 PM  

How can a playoff team not have a two minute offense? Nor the sense to employ it? 2016 to Kansas City: 'hurryup'

P.S. KC Chiefs I am available as Clock Manager at a very reasonable rate. By game or season. Also have documented background as a Get Back coach.

P.S.S. With helmet on, Aaron Rodgers looks a bit like Frodo Baggins. Of Bag End.

VFM #424 here--Reid is a poker. Marvin Lewis takes the prize for worst clock manager.

Anonymous RedJack January 16, 2016 9:50 PM  

Yes he is. I am a KC fan, and that blew.

Blogger Gapeseed January 16, 2016 9:52 PM  

I love the man and think he's still a pretty good coach even now, but Tom Coughlin had a very rough year with clock management.

It ended precisely as it should, and as it was fated to be.

OpenID Jack Amok January 16, 2016 10:15 PM  

That was brutal. Completely predictable, but still brutal.

Heh... his wiki page just got an update.

If Carson Palmer had not have gotten injured in his first playoff game, people would have already realized he is no good in the playoffs.

Blogger ray January 16, 2016 11:28 PM  

Burglar material. Worthy of the library at Great Smials.

Blogger Gapeseed January 16, 2016 11:28 PM  

Rodgers is insane.

Hail Marys that work. Coins that don't flip...
We are on the verge of the apocalypse.

Why on earth would you leave Fitzgerald so wide open.

Blogger jm January 16, 2016 11:38 PM  

Of all people.

Blogger YIH January 16, 2016 11:39 PM  

The Cards just won it. One minute into OT, TD.

Blogger Gapeseed January 16, 2016 11:40 PM  

Palmer has the monkey off his back now. What a game!

OpenID Jack Amok January 16, 2016 11:43 PM  

Aaron Rodgers is still Aaron Rodgers, but Carson Palmer is a new Carson Palmer. What a game.

Anonymous Laz January 16, 2016 11:50 PM  

What a great game! That was some craziness at the end. I've never flipped a coin and it not rotate.

The only sad part is KC didn't put the Pats down.

Blogger So Meh January 17, 2016 12:29 AM  

Packer vs. Cardinals the spread was -7 or -6 1/2. Cards win by 6 in OT and don't cover. Best to play the Money Line and pick winners and win a little and pay for the day's pizza and beer. Pats covered their -4 1/2 easier than i thought they would. the Grok played big. thought the KC D would put some fear into the pretty boy, but nope.

Anonymous Deadlocked January 17, 2016 3:35 AM  

I was watching the KC-NE game with someone who, with 5:50 left said "I'd be shocked if Andy Reid scores before the two-minute warning". He was right.

Just a tip, Andy...if you're playing a no-huddle hurry-up offense, your team shouldn't take 20 seconds to get to the line - and then still be calling the play.

Actually, if you're playing a hurry-up offense, the network shouldn't have time to show a replay between plays (if the clock didn't stop). Seriously.

Blogger Galt-in-Da-Box January 17, 2016 5:03 AM  

NO, what was your first clue?

Anonymous hightecrebel January 17, 2016 6:35 AM  

Even as a Pats fan, Andy Reid's clock management was horrid. I doubt Smith could have won the game for them, but he had very little chance of it between the clock and the onside kick.

Blogger VD January 17, 2016 7:10 AM  

You're spammed and banned, Haxo. Go away and don't come back. I do not tolerate commenters attempting to tell me what I should or should not be posting.

For future reference, every commenter on an NFL thread who sees fit to tell us that he either does not like or does not watch the NFL, for whatever reason, will be spammed.

No one asked for your opinion.

Coo-coo, KA-CHOOOO!

Blogger Xmas January 17, 2016 9:01 AM  

That last pass interference penalty actually won the game for the Pats. 3 more downs for KC made them eat up so much time on the clock trying to score from the 1 yard line.

Blogger craig January 17, 2016 11:02 AM  

Maybe it was how he was trained? Remember how is old boss Holmgren (mis)handled the clock in SB XL. Even the announcers were wondering what was up with the Seahwaks in the fourth quarter.

Anonymous redsash January 17, 2016 3:22 PM  

Granted Andy Reid did a horrible job with the clock, but Dennis Green and Les Miles have PHDs in bad clock management. I've heard they even hold seminars on the subject.

Anonymous kjj January 17, 2016 10:56 PM  

Zimmer isn't particularly good, but the indescribable badness of Denny Green echoes through the ages, making every subsequent coach seem amazing by comparison.

I expect strokes fell off sharply in 2001. I know I spend a lot less time yelling at the TV.
