Football, Fútbol, Food: Kyle Shanahan flubs overtime decision



NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – In this edition of FFF: The 49ers head coach makes a miscalculation in overtime, Bayern Munich producing a real dynasty, a visit to Jefferson for some spicy fried chicken.


Sometimes NFL coaches are too smart for their own good. That’s the case with Kyle Shanahan when it came to his overtime decision at the Super Bowl.

In overtime, each team gets one possession. If they both score the same amount of points in those separate possessions, it goes to sudden death from the third possession on.

Shanahan’s thought process on winning the coin toss, get first possession, so you’ll have the ball for the third possession when it goes to sudden death.

That’s too many chess moves forward. The move is to defer. Put the pressure on the opposing offense first.

If you hold them to a punt or a field goal, you know exactly what your aiming for with the second possession of the game.

So what happened, Niners kicked a field goal, and the Chiefs scored a touchdown to win it.

I know hindsight is always 20/20, but this was a miscalculation by Shanahan.

Also, 49ers players admitted after the game they didn’t even know the playoff overtime rules. Just another misstep by Shanahan in Super Bowl 58.


Dynasty talk is running rampant this week with the Chiefs winning their third Super Bowl in the last five seasons. That’s no doubt an impressive feat, but I’ll give you a much better example of a dynasty.

That would be the title run of Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga. Bayern have won 11 straight titles, 11!?

Every season, the likes of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig think they have a shot at the crown, but Bayern does it’s magic and wins another trophy.

As we learned with Belichick and Brady in New England, these dynasties don’t last forever.

That could ring true for Bayern this season. They lost to Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, 3-0. Leverkusen’s lead at the top is now five points over Bayern.

I know, I know, we’ve heard this story before, title in doubt. But 11 in a row, that’s a real dynasty.


One of the many reasons to love the carnival season is the parties on the parade route. King cakes and fried chicken are usually on the menu.

At one such soirée I attended, a box of Highway Fried Chicken was one of the main courses. Let me tell you, it was a hit.

The chicken was tasty, but also quite spicy. This chicken had been sitting out for a couple of hours. No worries, the flavor was intact and still enjoyable at room temperature.

The next week, I checked out the location on Jefferson Hwy. in Jefferson.

Right out of the fryer, the spices were really intact. So much so, that the top of my head was sweating after my first few bites. Still really good, even with the kick. And they don’t make mild, so you’re locked into the spicy.

With a biscuit, it’s a wise trip to checkout near Elmwood.
