I didn't bring up that SB to lay either game at Shanahan's feet - I don't think he deserves that.

That said, he did make some very odd decisions in both games, and it's fair to question those decisions. As a Chiefs fan I was very happy he decided to pass on 2nd and 5 (and then again on 3rd and 5) with 5 and half minutes left and a lead. Mostert was at nearly 5yd/carry at that point, so I was pretty shocked they didn't just keep grinding it out. It's almost like the change in momentum made him call plays like he was behind instead of ahead.

The lack of timeouts before the half and kicking a FG on 4th and 2 from the 24 both felt conservative to me, but are at least defensible. And if Jimmy G hits that deep ball late then we are having a different conversation right now.
