5/16/2012 - Challenging Mate in 2

Why not 1. Rxd5 1. Bxd5   2. Qc7# ?

Is that not an acceptable solution simply for the insipid response by black of  1. ... Qxe6 ?  That would just be followed by 2. Qxe6, with check, with a lopsided juggernaut of a victory?

It really annoys me when a perfectly good combination is deemed incorrect in favor of some ridiculously contrived sacrifice.

Was stumped for a moment, then realized it was a chess.com puzzle... I looked for a possible queen sacrifice and it came to me. When all else fails... queen sac.
