Agree. At the end there the Raiders were just going through the normal, taking a knee, but with "soft/save runs" w/no intention of pounding it hard. Charger coach tried to get cute and call a timeout and it probably pissed off the Raiders.

Edit: Now the Chiefs play the fossil that is Ben ..smh.
 

Todd Bradley

In the Starting Line-Up
That last run was for like 12 yards or so and put them in FG range. Previous to that they were just getting 2-3 yards per run and looked to just be going thru the motions. The TO got them focused on winning the game and they called a different play as a result.
You’re right, but they were still running the ball no matter the TO, so while the yardage made the kick easier, I don’t see anyway they don’t make the attempt either way.

Still safe to say everyone who watches the NFL hates Staley right now.

Not disagreeing with you, but offering up an "ok, then..." which is about Staley, and not meant to be negative towards you or your position:

Under your above rubric, shouldn't Staley have gone for two on that last TD?

Yes. Though I honestly think the outcome of a tie swings the risk/reward there.

I don't know if Staley is a good coach. He lucked into coaching an all star team on the Rams.

Chargers will probably take that NT Davis in the draft if they're smart. Their run defense looks as crappy as the Patriots run D.
