But there's still some validity to criticism of Reid's clock management -- if I were a Chefs fan, I'd be thinking he should have shown a bit more urgency in getting down the field to score and saved enough time on the clock to perhaps score again or to have a chance to get the ball back again in the event that the second effort at a scoring drive was unsuccessful. By being so lackadaisical about the time, he put the clock into play as a game-deciding factor.

Good point.
