The Oakland Raiders are not very good this year. The Denver Broncos – well, they’re. So when the two teams faced off on Monday Night Football there was little doubt about the outcome of the game. However, there has been some doubt created as to how the team got there. For the most part it was pretty easy to see how the Broncos beat the Raiders 37-21. Peyton Manning was his usual Peyton-like self, the running game was efficient, and the defense has little trouble handling Terrelle Pryor and the Raiders offense. So where is the doubt? It is in the final touchdown of the night, a one-yard plunge by running back Ronnie Hillman. If you listen to Hillman the story sounds like something straight from the playground (via USAToday): As the officials deliberated if Hillman had crossed the goal line after a 13-yard gain, Hillman, Moreno and Ball decided to play rock-paper-scissors for which running back would get the goal line carry if the score was overturned. Hillman said Moreno threw down a rock one beat too early and was disqualified, and Hillman’s scissors trumped Ball’s paper. Sounds kind of fun, right? According to head coach John Fox it did not really go down that way (via ESPN): “That’s just stuff for people who like to get on TV and have something to talk about,” Fox said Tuesday afternoon.” I mean, Ronnie Hillman was going back in the game, that had nothing to do with that, it was just trying to have fun I guess. Ronnie was going in the ballgame. We decide that, that had nothing to do with it.” This makes sense. What NFL coach in his right mind would actually be okay with a game-related decision be decided by rock/paper/scissors? The answer to that is easy–an unemployed one. Yes, the notion of it is fun and it is kind of cool to think it might have happened, but we are talking about the NFL (No Fun League).
