There was less 2 minutes left. He had 1 timeout. The colts would still have been able to run the clock out.

They should have had more than one time out. That is part of the bad game management. And even with one time out you still get the ball back if they don't get a first down. Probably with about 30 seconds left.

It was 4th and 11 at around midfield. The time to call a timeout was to get a game winning field goal, not to get the ball back with 30 seconds so you can try a Hail Mary which rarely ever works.

Right because the other team had absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of the game.

What was the Chiefs record in 2012 and who was the head coach?

Huh? They didn't use the last timeout to try for a game winning FG. They used it after coming out of a commercial break and then ran a pass play.

The Eagles were markedly better than last year, but I'm still not sold on Chip Kelly as an NFL head coach. He makes way too many stupid (and arrogant) mistakes.
This is Kelly's first NFL season, it's Reid's 10,000th. I'm willing to wait at least one more season to judge Kelly's abilities.

They ran the play to get into field goal range to attempt the field goal.

What does that have to do with their poor use of timeouts? I'm not sure what you are trying to say.

Yeah... how can a coach be arrogant in his first year in the NFL in a game he lost in the last second?

Andy Reid tho... he has a history of poor clock management and passing too much. I know his RB's were injured but IMO I think he made a mistake resting players. KC didnt have that many quality wins this year.

We hated him in Philly because he simply cannot manage the clock. He cannot make adjustment. He has a very average record against .500+ record teams. He gets out coached in big games.

I'm glad he's gone.

As far as you Chiefs fans.....just hope that he doesn't have longevity.
