Student Perspective: Can Chiefs, Mahomes repeat their success?

Patrick Mahomes is adding impressive stat lines to his young career at an alarming rate.

After becoming the “Comeback Kings” of the 2019-2020 playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs have gone all in behind their high caliber offence powered by Mahomes and elite receivers.

In my opinion, so long as the team can remain predominantly injury free, they have a chance of becoming the new Golden State Warriors of the NFL.

Having weapons such as Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Damien Williams and Sammy Watkins, the Chiefs have the potential to feed the ball to every part of the field with a quarterback who can scramble for as far as he throws.

Andy Reid in the big game showed his coaching prowess by outsmarting offensive mind Kyle Shanahan to pick up his 222 career win.

He erased the criticisms of his clock management and play calls by coaching a team to score 21 points unanswered with just over six minutes left in the game.

As the post-season begins, teams will be looking to poach coaches from the staff of the Chiefs, which leaves rooms for questions on if replacements will be able to keep the same standard.

Under Coach Andy Reid, however, the question of them filling in the system set up and kept by the Hunt family most likely will not be a problem.

With just five picks in the upcoming draft, the team will have to focus on defensive positions to fill with free agency status weighing heavily on key defensive players.

If General Manager Brett Veach can work with Coach Reid and bulk up the team by the time the draft hits on April 23, Las Vegas’s numbers at having the Chiefs most likely to repeat at five-to-one odds can become a reality for next season.
