Will the Chiefs be the next dynasty?


Recommended Posts

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.

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

 

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.

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.

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

    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
    • Once again, I agree with u in sine points. Also as the season progresses, teams get more film ti look at. I am just not a big beleiver in this scheme. Feel it is out dated.
