If nothing else, Chiefs coach Todd Haley’s postgame antics will distract folks from his team’s terrible performance Sunday.
Haley apparently was not pleased with how Josh McDaniels handled a big lead in Denver’s 49-29 victory over the Chiefs. The Broncos were still throwing plenty, max protecting, and blitzing on defense with a comfortable fourth quarter lead.
Let’s examine this a little closer. The Broncos have a terrible defense that gave up 59 points in their last home game. The Chiefs outscored the Broncos 19-14 in the second half. It’s ridiculous to think the Broncos should have to let up off the gas until the final couple of minutes of the game. We’re sure the Raiders and Chargers agree.
We think Haley was just blowing off some misdirected steam after spending three miserable hours at Invesco Field. His talented secondary gave up five touchdown passes and his team’s lead in the AFC West has evaporated far sooner than anyone could have anticipated.
