Will the Chiefs be the next dynasty?

Recommended Posts

How do people feel about the Chiefs?  Will they go on a run similar to what the Seahawks did from 2013-2017?

they might

 

i think the ravens will push hard to win now in case lamar does not have a long career.  he basically set the league on fire last year, it will be hard to keep up that pace for long.  i think they are good enough to challenge the chiefs. they were probably the best rushing team ever  and lead the league in passing TDs while also having a very good defense

I am not sure about dynasty. To me to be a dynasty a team has to win 3 SB's or more with roughly the same core of players in a short span like the Steelers did in the 70's = 74/75/78/79, 49ers did in the 80's = 81/84/88/89, Cowboys did in the 90's = 92/93/95, and what the Patriots have accomplished over the last 19 seasons winning 6 in total with Brady and BB. I can see Mahomes entering that special 2 SB win club though because he is so young but it is not a given. I thought Rodgers would have 2 by now after winning in 2010 and he still doesn't. Peyton got his 2nd at the end of his career like Elway did. Football is strange, all it takes is 1 or 2 key injuries to your team and it messes up everything.

 

The Colts from 2003-2009 had a better run than what the Seahawks have had. The Colts won 1 SB and went to 2 SB's like the Seahawks have from 2013-2019 but won more games overall during their 7 season run. Colts were 89-23 in that 7 season span.

I don't see anyone on paper being better than KC this upcoming year.

There's a chance that they win multiple SB's in the near future. I'd go so far to say if they don't win at least one more, that'll be considered an upset of sorts.

I agree but easier said than done. I thought with Peyton we would win at least 2 if not 3. The Patriots are the only recent team to win more than 2 SB's as a team. Brees and Rodgers have only won 1 and that was 10 years ago.

Maybe.  If they don't run into the same thing other offensive powerhouses have run into.

 

Real football teams.

 

Rams, Colts, Chiefs, and others ran into the Pats.  The Pats ran into the Titans last year.  Teams that can run the ball and play good defense always cause problems in the playoffs.

 

Hopefully the Colts can be that team moving forward.  Heck, we went into Arrowhead and handled the Chiefs last year, without Rivers, Buckner, Hooker, and Leonard.  :thmup:

I agree. The niners were that team last year but fell apart in the last 6 minutes. They completely dominated the Chiefs with their lines and run game.  Still, Mahomes is special.  We will see if they can duplicate what the Seahawks did from 2013-2017. That is pretty much the measuring stick as what the Patriots did for the last two decades is not realistic for any team.

With Mahomes anything is possible. He’s that good. He’s the difference between the Chiefs and the rest of the pack. That said, watch out for the Ravens. They have a heckuva QB too, and the better D.

For this season, they would be favorites. However, it is hard to go back-to-back in the salary cap era. Ravens have actually improved on their D unit and are the biggest threat to the Chiefs.

 

I don't think the Chiefs will be highly competitive once they pay Mahomes before the 2021 season. That is why 2020 season might be their best chance to cash in with pretty much their entire team's key components coming back.

They are paying Mahomes this year. They are working on his contract right now.

Depends on whether or not the Chiefs front office is brilliant

 

They could be 'damn good' like the 2000's Colts and still not good enough

Dynasty is officially over with this massive deal.

I agree you cant have one player eating up all your cap space and be able to keep a good enough team that can compete year after year this deal almost certainly destroys any possibility of a long term chiefs dynasty.

I don't think so, other teams will improve, catch on to their talent level, read their mo's, etc.... It's always tough to repeat in the NFL.

since its a topic here i'll guess one more super bowl with PM, but not predicting 2-3 more dynasty 

 

they are going to lose some good players after this contract and have to draft really well to keep it up.  hes also not the most durable qb and he does take some risks

My over/under on Mahomes SB wins as a starter is 2.5. He still is young so it is possible he could win 3? Only 12 OB's have won 2 or more as a starter, winning 3 is really tough. Only Brady who has won 6, Bradshaw 4, Montana 4, and Aikman 3 have done so. Peyton didn't get #2 until his final season. Rodgers and Brees still only have 1 and look how great they have been. There are rarity's like Eli and Ben winning 2 but they had great defenses in doing so, Chiefs defense is ok but nowhere near great.

I honestly don’t look at it that deeply..the Pats ran the AFC side of the playoffs with Brady he’s no longer there..so that issue of damn near every team being eliminated by them at some point is no longer here playoffs are up for grabs

    • Your opinion is wrong though.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
