There's only one great team. Kansas. Pittsburgh has too many injured. The Bills don't have playoff experience neither would they fare well against Kansas.

It's Kansas superbowl to lose. The only other team that maybe can put up a fight are the Packers. Tampa is still a mystery to me. But Kansas has the best quarterback, the best coaching staff remaining, best tight end, top 3 best receiver(debatable). They don't have the greatest defense but they're offense is just unstoppable.



To me it's their superbowl to lose.

This is what I said and at the time they were playing great football, I think it was the last game of the season and they didn't play as well yesterday. Last night they were out matched no doubt about it. Should a great game coming up in two weeks.

They actually played great yesterday. They just cant beat the Chiefs. If theyre healthy theyre hands down the best team in football.

Im not even a Chiefs fan. I want Brady to win but it would be a miraclee if he did. He made 3 critical errors yesterday and Tampass deffense stood up.

The Bills havee a great team. Nothing tto be ashamed of.

2020 Bills are the new 2017 Eagles... Josh Allen is the current Carson Wentz look what happened to him after his one good showing...

The acid test in the NFL is can you do that again next year, Wentz is yet to show any kind of promise and will likely be wearing new colors next year.

Deshaun Watson was supposed to be the wonder boy too, had one decent year and what since, nada will be with a new team next year as well...

Also Lamar Jackson he was Josh Allen last year all the talking sports heads gushing over him then where is he this year.

Every year it's the same... some new QB has a good season and the whole sports world thinks the new Brady is here...

Or some team is the hot new thing, was the Browns all season this year... oh look this is their year dada dada and oh my Mayfield is the man, now crickets are chirping in Cleveland...

Was the 49ers in 2019, look what a record they put up, first place finish in the NFC West... then they got clobbered and blew completely apart this year ending at 6-10...

The only one to prove he has what it takes to set the bar for the new generation is Mahomes the rest are just chasing him, even if Allen has a decent season next year he will always be in Mahomes shadow.

Sort of like Rogers and others have played in Brady's shadow for years but never able to creep up and take center stage.

ctaulbee is right. There are no moral victories. Its either win the superbowl or bust. This thing saying they did a great job and have been doing for ages but when it come down to it they win nada in hindsight is the ame as going 0-16 and finihing dead last.


I see greatness in Mahomes. Hes had already 3 years in the NFL as a starter and he can potentially win back to back, 2 outta three rings.

Theres a reason for that andd it isnt only having Kelsee and Hill.

Theres a reason Brady alone has more superbowls than any other team and probably mosst superbowl appearances.
Bilichech choked firdt year without him and I have no doubt in my mind that if it was Braady the main factor in his first year bringing tampa to the superbowl in forever.


There are good players and then there are great player that have that special IT.

Honestly it will be game of mistakes the team that makes the most will lose...

If it comes down to pure skill the Chiefs will have the edge, they have some serious offensive weapons.

Brady has luck on his side, shall we go back to the "Tuck Rule Game" so if it comes down to luck I give that edge to the Bucs.

Then there is the golden rule of the NFL that says, any NFL team can beat any other NFL team on any given day...

All joking aside, I expect it to be a great game and am looking forward to watching it.

Agree with the golden rule and also think it's gonna be a great game, the Chiefs will edge out the Bucks, as you said, they have just too many offensive weapons.

Haha, yeah we tend to forget the folks who play professional sports are literally the best of the best.

You don't make a NFL team by having zero skills just ask the 2000 or so each year who don't get picked to even make the pre-season or if they are they get cut in the last round of roster trimming before the season starts.

One could for example, take any practice squad in the NFL and crush any college team out there and just think those are only backup players that teams keep around just for spares...

Come on now you can't seriously believe that.

I don't recall their entire team ever going to the NFL after a season...

So how good can the team as a whole be?

What 1-2 players make it each year...

In College you only need one or two really good players to win in most cases, then the support players only need to be okay.

Most College teams change each year, in the NFL the best players collect up year after year, stack experience get better, stronger, faster.

For example lets look a college linebackers, take Travis Kelce you think any college team could stop him... of course not and all you would need is a decent QB who can get him the ball to win in college.

Yet in the NFL they have many linebackers who can tackle him on every team you see, the NFL is all good players.

So even if a college team had a decent TE like him they would never be able to perform well against a group of top NFL trained athletes on defense.

But against another college team with limited skill players he would shine.

That is why many who look like super stars in college fizzle once they get drafted Tim Tebow for example. A two time national champion QB at FL (back to back titles), a first-round NFL draft pick, and the 2007 Heisman trophy winner.

Was nothing in the NFL and is currently signed to play professional baseball with the New York Mets.

When he was drafted everyone thought he would be the next Tom Brady... college performance is often very misleading as they don't play against really good teams week in week out like the NFL does, everyone is good in the NFL by comparison.
