I understand it's difficult, but you know what really sucks about the flag fest this league has become now? This isn't one of those cases, but SO often you have no chance to see where or why the flag was thrown live. Absolutely infuriating.

Chiefs have shown nothing in this game that shows me they are the team to beat in the AFC. Any given Sunday and all but we should all feel good about the NE KC matchup later this year. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Patriots D handles the Chiefs.

That holding was 8 yards down the field. It was 10 yards from the spot of the foul, so why would it be 1st and 20, and not like 1st and 12?

The Colts offensive line is pushing the Chiefs defensive line 5 or 6 yards past the line of scrimmage on run plays. Calling for a pass on this drive should be a fireable offense.

The hubris of NFL offensive coaches
is just unreal. It’s like you can almost hear them thinking out loud... Sure we could be getting 5-6 yards per play on the ground but you don’t get labeled an offensive guru by running the ball! And I’m such a smart offensive coach that my schemes will work without fail! Who cares if the the only thing this defensive does well is rush the passer and who cares that my QB is a middle of the road player, my plays are smart!

Are you suggesting some sort of FoxTrax system of "glowing flags", where a yellow trail would follow the flag when thrown and show where it's coming from?

I'm so in.

There's some previously unknown replay rule where they can go back and issue a personal foul penalty for whatever hurt Mahomes, right? That's going to come after the commercial break?

When would you take the safety in the situation where KC just punted? I would have really thought about it.

Well maybe if you’re down by 4 late in the game. But I wouldn’t in a 3pt game with a whole quarter left to play. What where the game conditions when BB did it years ago against the (broncos??)?
