It was a night headlined by flashy halftime performers and NFL 100 honorees. A beautiful display of entertainment representing a “what should be” American holiday. And the game itself? That was just as fun. The Kansas City Chiefs, led by Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes didn’t play perfectly. However that is usually the case with SuperBowls. Both teams are the creme of the crop and will expose each others flaws. Anyhow, the Chiefs ultimately proved that their crafty play calling and legion of Zoom was too much for the San Francisco’s defense to contain. The Kansas Chiefs are Super Bowl Champions! That’s right. For the first time in 50 years they are the Kings of the World. So where do they go from here?
First of all the Chiefs have a lot to look forward to at the Quarterback position. Patrick Mahomes clearly has all the tangibles and is proving by the day that he also has all the intangibles. It’s really quite hard to find a flaw in his game or his character as a man and human being. At this position they have their franchise quarterback however a new contract is a must because he is entering the last year of his contract. I expect him to get paid well north of 25 million a year. This could have other implications however because his current team friendly rookie contract has helped the team sign other players so much. The negotiations coming up will definitely be something to keep an eye on.
This year’s free agent list for the Chiefs hits the Defense much harder than the offense. Names like Chris Jones, Kendall Fuller, Bashaud Breeland, Mike Pennel, and Emmanuel Ogbah are all unrestricted free agents. On the offensive side you have Lesean McCoy and Andrew Wylie to worry about. Offensively they will be fine in the off season. However, resigning all these key defensive names will be close to impossible especially with the Mahomes contract lingering over their heads. I don’t expect much fireworks in signing free agents either. They have a strong young core that they are very proud of and can potentially add to in the draft.
All this will work itself out in the coming months. But for now the Kansas City Chiefs are going to enjoy every second of this. A few notables on the agenda now are the parade, the White House visit, and the ring celebration. One thing’s for certain however, Kansas City and the great state of Missouri have lots of partying to do in this shortened off season.
