when Hardman caught the game-winning touchdown, his reaction was so muted that i honestly wondered if he realized what he had just done. turns out, he didn't. when Nantz interviewed him after the game he said he blacked out. he was NOT joking. i'm not even gonna ponder how that's remotely possible, i'm just gonna go with it and say this.

Chiefs receivers are THE BEST :D

    Totally plausible that he was in a state of euphoria, disbelief and or an out of body experience

    Good for him, he made the most important catch of his career

    i'd much rather be on the winning side of a situational awareness brain fart of that magnitude, as opposed to numerous 49ers players who are coming out today admitting that they had no clue about the change in OT rules

    they thought if they housed one they'd win the Super Bowl without Mahomes getting a chance to put his hands on the ball. and that's why they chose to receive when they won the toss.

    now THAT'S bad. wtg Shanahan

    No, Shanahan knew about the rule changes and still made the decision he did. Some players said they didn’t know, but that didn’t impact Shanahan’s decision.

    i know but my players don't

    that makes it a modicum less indefensible

    Not entirely correct galaxy. I was up until 1 am watching nfl network so saw a lot of interviews. Some of the SF players didn’t know the ot rules but shanahan certainly did. They took the ball first because shanahan thought if both teams scored the same points on their opening drives, whether it was 3’s or 7’s then it would be sudden death and SF would have the ball.

    Chiefs be like, we'll gladly play the role of house on this BJ hand. go ahead and hit on 12 so we'll know exactly what we need to do

    so bad

  • stevekstevek Posts: 27,475 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Have to agree. Hiss poor coaching on all levels, every single 49ers coach.

    Minor point if I may. There really should be as long a break for overtime as there is for halftime.

    Not 100% sure, but I think it's around 15 minutes or whatever, the break they give the players during halftime. So why not at least an equivalent break during the end of game and start of overtime? I mean they're even much more tired after 60 minutes of football, than 30 minutes of football. Makes absolutely no sense to me?

  • galaxy27galaxy27 Posts: 7,065 ✭✭✭✭✭

    imagine the celebration that would have ensued on the Niners sideline if they had housed one on their opening drive of OT

    so in one scenario we have a player who caught a TD to win the Super Bowl and he didn't know it

    and in another scenario a chunk of an entire time would have thought they won the Super Bowl when the game wasn't over because their coach never bothered to address it

    naptime starts in 30 minutes

  • galaxy27galaxy27 Posts: 7,065 ✭✭✭✭✭

    if there are players in the Super Bowl who catch game-winning touchdowns and don't realize it, and other players who don't even know the rules, then there must be a place in the National Football League for this lovely woman.

    I say a 5-yr contract as head coach of the Chicago Bears.......laced with incentives.......and a map

    Frankly, I find it impossible to believe that Shanahan didn't know these overtime rules, especially because of the simplicity.

    Now did he adequately inform his players of these simple rules? Obviously not.

    In any event, I think it further necessitates my earlier point that the overtime break should be at least 15 minutes. Gives the players not only a chance at a longer breather, but for the coaches to explain these simple rules to the players, and perhaps other things as well.

    If players didnt know thats on them. Sure meetings wont spend much time on something that is unlikely, they had two weeks to take a quick glance.

    Really doesnt matter anyways. The 49ers werent playing for a FG they just got stopped.

    Gloating and denigrating the competition, it is a great look, isn't your team winning enough to keep you happy? Like what 6 posts here gloating. Why?

    All I see if you want to go out of your way to denigrate the 49ers. So I assume it is the Chiefs. You also start a thread stating that Mahomes is gonna be GOAT. So again it must the be the Chiefs. But again 6 posts here to slam the 49ers, that is a great look you go for it......................

    know what happens when you assume? it makes an ass out of u and me

    if you took the time to read closely, you would see that my initial post was "denigrating" a Chiefs player. but clearly you're so butthurt from yesterday's outcome that you can't see straight. and then you trot over to another thread creation of mine where i'm simply comparing Mahomes to Brady at this stage of the game and your interpretation is that i'm "stating that Mahomes is gonna be GOAT"?

    bro it's time for you to step outside for some fresh air. and maybe, just maybe, if you frequented this place more often you'd know what team is mine. at least then you'd be factually butthurt.

    I think that maybe in the playoffs, instead of changing all the overtime rules and having people get either confused or all upset about it they should just play another 15 minute "quarter" and see how it plays out.

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

  • estangestang Posts: 1,254 ✭✭✭

    I thought CBS did an incredibly poor job of explaining the rules, as I didn't understand them.

    For example, did KC need to score before the clock hit 0:00 in the Overtime quarter?

    Each team got one possession and I'm not sure I've ever seen a game where only 1 each of a position took an entire quarter but it was happening.

    Romo was flippant in saying if the clock hits 0:00 they just go to another quarter.

    If that's the case, why exactly is there a game clock in Overtime playoff games?

    To change ends. Considering it’s an outdoor game and winds

    That was my assumption without even giving it a second thought

    Uh no, I saw a great game between 2 great teams. You want to focus on something that ESPN wrote about to make waves that is trivial but you picked up on to gloat about for 6 posts in this thread bc apparently you don't like the Niners. I enjoyed the game, was one of the best SB's I ever saw, had fun watching. Happy for both teams who played great. Someone had to lose, thaz why they play. LOL.
