08:09 AM ET 11.15 | Rather than receiving congratulations for the Broncos' 49-29 win over Kansas City, Josh McDaniels got a finger-wagging from coach Todd Haley. McDaniels, the Broncos' head coach, seemed confused. It didn't seem like he was running up the score. When his team goes up 35-0 with more than 5 minutes remaining in the first half, and wins by a final score of 49-29, the numbers suggest if anything, the Broncos let up. Haley, the last man out of the visiting locker room, was asked about the exchange on his way to the team bus: "Just part of the game," he said.

If you Chiefs' D can't stop the Broncos' offense, shame on them.

The Chiefs got their **** kicked up and down the field...

So much for that padded record off of under-achieving teams....

That's not even close to running up the score....

Looks like we got us a good old fashioned rivalry going on right here.

Sorry, the players are paid to win the game. The only time a coach can complain is if on the final play of the game a team goes for an easy score rather than a knee. This is college ball.

I meant to say this "isn't" college ball.

This is no college ball...

Hell... When was the last time a Jo Pa led Penn State hung up 49?

How 'bout dem cowboys...

Broncos had 35 at halftime. Finished with 49 and ran the ball almost the entire 2nd half. The way the Chiefs played, the Broncos would have had 60 if they hadn't let up. No one complained about running the score when Oakland hammered the Broncos. At the end of this season, this little snit by Haley will be noted as the point where the Chiefs lost the division.

Yeah, typing too fast. Joe is definitely one that does not run up games. 49 - not since 2008.

And look who's on top in the AFC West. Alferatu, The Cable Guy and their band of misfits.

But seriously, they won by 20... I wouldn't exactly call that running up the score.

The Broncos need to score points whenever they can. Still, somebody needs to tell McD that they aren't carry-over points like his cell-phone minutes.

November 15, 2010  08:29 AM ET

Part of the game Haley; grow a pair.

Mornin', Otis. It's been a while since you felt good on a Monday, huh?

Agree. College ball is different, in that you can have a team playing another which is completely outmatched, so there should be some courtesy there. But in the pros, sorry no real such thing. If your D can't stop them, they should be embarrassed.
