Maybe. But it’s also a potential deal-sealer to keep the Chiefs as the dominant franchise for the next decade.
But, sure, they’re going to have to make sacrifices at other positions. And football is the ultimate team sport. It takes more than a phenomenal quarterback to be successful - a lot more.
I bet Chiefs fans are happy about this. But you’re right that the real cost here will show up in the future as they try to retain top players.
Well, considering the kind of player he is now, it’s a no-brainer for the Chiefs.
But, gosh, there’s so much more catastrophic injury risk in football than most other sports. And they’ve apparently accounted for that. Toss in the salary cap, and that just complicates major deals like this that much more.
But I’d bet there isn’t a team in football that wouldn’t bet the farm on Mahomes like the Chiefs are. If he stays healthy, I’m guessing he’ll add at least a few more rings before it’s all over.
Kudos to his agent, obviously. And I think Chiefs fans have reason to be thrilled that they’ve locked him down for a decade. He’s already on the cusp of the conversation for GOAT - and he’s just 3 years in.
i think they will be favored over the colts. great run game and defense, also lead the league in passing tds
they could win a super bowl with lamar, but the thread is about who should be favored in week 2. i dont agree with the no one should get respect until they win a super bowl
