The Chiefs last drive
featured Priest Holmes and Trent Green. Both were flawless
and that must have been what the Chiefs had in mind when
they made the moves to bring those two in on the eve of
the 2001 NFL draft. It's several games too late for this
season, but can be used as a building block.
What an ending---for once the Chiefs were on the other
end of poor clock management. Mistakes were made, but
lessons had to be learned.
Pad and pencil in hand?
Take A Memo.
--This just in
Priest Holmes is pretty damn good.
--When Trent Green limits his mistakes, he gives his
team an opportunity to win.
--Offensive coordinator Al Saunders notched his second
victory of the season; only this one wasnt against
one of the three stooges. He didnt best Jimmy Raye;
he beat one of the best
--The best thing that could happen to the Chargers in
this game was Flutie going down.
--The six-yard screen to Gonzo late in the second quarter
set up the Gonzo 40-yard pass to Ricks.
--Think SD has figured out the draw yet?
--Trent Greens best pass of the day was incomplete.
Everyone was covered in the endzone late in the second
quarter and he threw the ball out of the back of the endzone.
The result, 3 points instead of another killer interception.
--Gutsy call of the dayanother fade pass to Ricks.
--Prevent defense? Dime package? Whatever you call it,
it doesnt work.
