    Don't confuse a team occasionally putting 4-5 wideouts out there with the same thing that we used to do.

    The Oilers had only ONE offensive set... 4 WR's, no TE, 1 RB. There was no "big" package, no goal-line offense, no fullback.

    The only reason it lasted so long was because Munchack-Matthews provided the foundation for an AMAZING offensive line that was able to give Moon ample time. If they had a TE, Moon may have never gotten sacked.

    But, alas, they only had one way to play... pass, pass, pass, run, screen pass, pass.... and it left themselves wide open to allow other teams to get back in the game.

    I was watching this game at a restaurant. That first drive really amazed me how they took up like 7 minutes.

    I was actually more depressed about the loss to Montana and Kansas City a year later. Eleven wins in a row, sweeping the Steelers and even beating the 'Niners in Candlestick, for goodness sakes.

    Three years, three comeback playoff losses in a row (Denver, Buffalo, KC).

    Funny, no mention of his tenure with the Chargers ('97-'98)...

    Well, in retrospect, the KC loss feels worse because it was the end of that era of the Oilers (and effectively the end of the Oilers in Houston). Moon was traded away in the off-season and the team slumped to the worst record in the NFL the next season (and STILL didn't get the No. 1 pick... though Steve McNair worked out better than KiJana Carter).

    As heartbreaking as the Buffalo loss was, there was hope going into the next season and they had a chance to build and do better (granted, they didn't start off that sharp the next season, but they pulled it together until the playoffs).
