Down 13-7 with 6 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, the Chiefs decide to go for it on 4th and about a foot from the Ravens 30. Fall forward and you get the first. What do the Chiefs and Charlie Weiss come up with? A sweep to the right side to Dexter McCluster?! And it went downhill from there. Florida, you can have him.
Oh, and by the way, everyone on the planet knows Joe Flacco will throw it to either Todd Heap or Ray Rice out of the backfield on 3rd down every. fucking. time. He's not setting you up. He's not going to all of a sudden get a canon for an arm. It's OK to bring men up closer to the line of scrimmage and cover these guys. Really. He's that predictable. You needn't worry.
In all honesty, noone thought the Chiefs had a snowball's chance in hell of making it past the 2nd round (myself included) and this team is a year or two away still from being contenders in the AFC. But the arrow is pointing up.
Now we enter Sports Purgatory. The end of football to Pitchers and Catchers.
Yeah, I'll watch the rest of the NFL playoffs but college basketball is just sorta there and the less said about the NBA the better.
