Seriously. He may or may not be a solid QB over his career, but there was some serious chronic ballwashing because he was largely a clipboard holder for Team Do Your JobI would rather listen to the Mahomes crazy talk (at least he won MVP) than listen to people call Jimmy a HoFer.
And get memorialized !I gotta say fellas, the last couple years it’s been kinda hard being a man. Was starting to feel like we couldn’t just do whatever we wanted with impunity any more.
But, this last week has been a great reminder that with a little bit of talent or money or political power, we can still get away with anything!
Feels damn good.
Shanahan got too conservative and didn’t utilize Kittle nearly enough. He needs to answer for giving away the possession before the end of he half as well.Chiefs down 20-10, early 4th quarter. KC driving for a key score. Mahomes throws a terrible pass behind the receiver that gets intercepted at the SF 13...returned to the SF 20. Niners have the ball, up ten, their defense having stymied KC's vaunted offense for a little more than three quarters.
SF: 5 plays, 17 yards, punt
KC: 10 plays, 83 yards, touchdown
SF: 3 plays, 5 yards, punt
KC: 7 plays, 65 yards, touchdown
SF: 7 plays, 27 yards, turnover on downs
KC: 2 plays, 42 yards, touchdown
SF outplays KC for over three quarters and then BAM, just like that, KC knocks the 49ers out cold.
Unreal. They did this to Houston, Tennessee, and then San Francisco. Incredibly impressive.
Yup. Hell of a defense that will be quickly forgotten. I do think the defense would have struggled mightily in a hypothetical matchup with SF.FWIW (not much, I know), the Patriots' defense did the best job against KC after Mahomes returned, holding them to 23 points and 346 yards. Nobody else held them down as much as that. Denver allowed 23 points as well, but gave up 419 yards.
NE also did the best job of anyone against the Tannehill version of Tennessee as well. Holding them to just 14 points of offense and 272 yards total.
It's SOP in the NFL that the play clock hits zero, and the offense gets another 1.5 to 2 seconds to snap the ball before any delay of game flag flies.Sorry—it was a reaction to the nfl screwing up what millions of people saw: a delay of game. Chief deserved it, but it’s hilarious that they can’t be bothered to get the calls right. Missed offsides, unclear TD, missed delay of game...all in the last 10 minutes of game play.
Niners will wake up tomorrow and realize they got a C+ version of the Chiefs and blew it.Sadly, not the first time we see the Niners not finish things.
They lost to Baltimore trying to throw at 4th and 1 when they could run at will
They lost that first game to Seattle when they should have played for the tie when time was running out in OT
Then they have the ball up 10 and cannot execute. This game was theirs to lose, and they did. Had it been a blow out by KC and Mahomes it's different.
Anyhow, props to KC fans, good game. The Niners are a young team that can be back in the dance. Now let's see if Jimmy G can become a championship QB, he's not one now.
Sorry man but at least you had the balls to go. I am too chicken shit to consider going to a SB and I'm a Pat's fan.I just got back from the game - which will most likely be my one and only super bowl. 2003 ALCS game 7 level gutted from that. I agree with most here that SF outplayed KC and then blew it with the play calling, though I was really scratching my head at some of the flags/non-flags.
I felt really good about the 49ers today. I also knew that financially this is probably my one shot at a super bowl in person, and I decided to take it when it was available - because who knows when their team is going to make it again (25 years ago I expected it all the time!)? But unless it’s like 1995 vs the Chargers, my advice is not to go if you are in my shoes...this suuuuuccckkkkkssssss.
Jones my MVPI'm curious on the all-22 on the 3rd & 15. it seemed like Mahomes didn't throw a great ball, Hill had to come back to it but he was that wide open. There was also the long completion to Watkins in the 1st quarter that was really a duck from Mahomes, that was so wide open it didn't matter.
Chris Jones came up huge late with at least two tipped passes. one of the main reasons KC's defense went from a joke to good, shedding the corpse of Eric Berry also helped.
There’s no way the win prob was 95% at that point in actuality. Either the analytics are wrong or the dataset they used was not representative of today’s NFL
20-10 with 7 minutes left AND holding the ball? That is, I assume, around a 95% win probability.There’s no way the win prob was 95% at that point in actuality. Either the analytics are wrong or the dataset they used was not representative of today’s NFL
but overall point stands
