I am 41. No. I do not have a mullet. I laugh at the "Camarrowheads" as much as you all probably do.

That's over now. Going to be fun watching this next decade plus as your team is led by marginally ok veterans who aren't difference makers while the Chiefs are contenders every year for the next 15 seasons.

You're going to love going 10-6 or so and losing in the playoffs every year, then not being in position when the major QB prospect here and there is available at the top of the draft. You've already gotten a taste of it with Lynch. And you'll all love Keenum until he can't carry the team when it matters.

We FINALY have the the generational talent at QB we've been missing all these years.

Your turn to suffer Denver. (and in the back of your mind, you know I'm right)
Like 40+ years lol. Damn that franchise is pathetic. Only thing that separates them from the Chargers is one game in 1970. The Chiefs had two 22 year stretches without a playoff win. It must be horrible rooting for them.

So you have never seen them as legitimate Super Bowl contenders. You should have jumped ship a long time ago.

Reid says he is great on the whiteboard. Throws into tight spaces...can throw guys open. Also can float and touch a pass when the situation calls for it. ...I mean... I can go on and on...and it will read like a positive scouting report. At some point you must have thought of Elway as a generational talent. There would have been an event or series of events that led you to that conclusion. The Baltimore Colts came to that conclusion on draft day...and the Broncos must have thought that's who he was when they traded for him....I'm sure some fans took more time than that to draw that conclusion...needing to see something out of him for a period of time first. I'm not sure what you want me to tell you? I can't point to a boxscore and say look at these stats..they say "generational talent". The kids has the "it" factor. He makes all kinds of ACCURATE throws both by design and can still throw to all sectors of the field if the play breaks down...and as a last resort...he can run. He will win in the pocket most of time, and run if he has too..not because he made one read and takes off....makes quick reads through his progressions...and will find the right target.......I have not good answer for you...I can see "it".
I'm not overly impressed by pseudo scouting reports from random fans with a clear bias for their own team's player. I look at NFL scouting reports for valid information, and I withhold praise for those too unless I see an obvious consensus of opinion.

I can tell you're basically unfamiliar with Elway when he came out of Stanford. He was the definition of a REAL generational talent, which is why he was the consensus #1 pick on every team's board, and no, Bronco fans did not need to see him do anything first, we already knew what he was before he took a single snap. Elway came out as a guy considered a sure-fire future All-Pro, perhaps the best QB prospect to ever enter the NFL. Nobody had to figure out how to make that generational talent claim like you're doing with Mahomes, whose game is unproven at this point, and a few complimentary and conciliatory comments from Bronco defenders following a meaningless loss is precious little to hang your hat on. The fact is, Air Raid QB's have a very spotty record in the NFL...and a single start against a bunch of Bronco bench scrubs tell me very little. His skill set is similar to Mayfield's as was his college system. Keenum came from the same system, and it took him 6 years to break out.

It's bizarre that after almost 50 years of ****ty teams and almost zero playoff success, you're showing up ANYWHERE to troll other team's fans, especially on the strength of projecting QB greatness for a guy who's a complete question mark at this point. The fact that you're spouting this idiocy about a "golden age" of Chief's football and projecting 15 years of failure on the team that's had far more success than you have because we happened to sign Case Keenum...another Air Raid QB ironically...is pretty silly.

What do you think Mahomes will do since you are enlightened having watched the great John Elway all these years....how about Keenum?

Maholmes will be a rookie making rookie mistakes. But no one will know his tendencies. Second year is more the proof. You don't even have otas yet. So....

Contenders for the AFC West will most likely be LA and Denver. Chubb and Von, & bosa and K Mack are gonna destroy maholmes.

KFC might shine this year. Then everyone will learn with game tape and maybe Maholmes suffers the slump in year two? Who knows?

I think Denver got stronger and KFC got a big ?
We'll see. Now, I say take Kaylore's advice and get something better to do than troll the mane. But then again if you are here you ain't breeding with your cousin, so.... Troll away I suppose...

Eh....Welcome to the world of depending on one player to be the difference on your team. For all the fun times we had watching the majority of Elway's career, it wasn't until time was spent on getting him a complete team did we finally see him as a Champion. KC now has a 4 year window to get their defense up to par again, and that is assuming Mahommes is good at all. If it doesn't happen, you'll be forced to pay 150 million to keep the QB and never be able to support him well enough to have a complete team.

The league is evolving again. Teams can't afford both top level QB's and the players needed to support them. Soon you'll see that teams will just invest in knocking the opposing QB's out.

Almost makes me feel something for you guys, but then I remember the 3 blatant blocks in the back during Dante Halls TD return that the refs missed.

Denver fans are interested in SB's. We don't have this weird inferiority complex that Chief fans do.
Oh Kaylore, the off season is all they have, so be nice. It's like their Superbowl. They don't even have power rankings this year to help them out.

Clark Hunt , the owner of the Chiefs , strives each year to win the trophy with his namesake on it. When that is the goal of you organization , it’s all you need to know.
Don’t believe me, find the hard knocks with the Chiefs and you will see the preseason talk to the club from the owner.

You can basically mark the changing of the seasons (spring to summer) by the consistency of a "Chiefs are the best team to play football this year before they even take a real down" threads made by Chiefs fans. I just consider it an annual mark of time. Like seeing cherry blossoms, or mowing the grass.

Its interesting that you think Mahomes is even the most important part of the offense right now. For the first half of he season, Im going to say your most important stars on offense are a) Kareem Hunt, and b) Travis Kelce. If those guys dont have great games, you lose. Are we supposed to be scared of Sammy Watkins just because you guys paid him as much as we paid our QB?

Mahomes is quite an interesting prospect and Ill give him props if he does turn around a middling Chiefs team, but lets just see what happens when teams start putting together some film on him. He cant carry that team without Kareems help.

This is pretty funny. First of all, Mahomes has proven even less than Keenum. Many people (myself included) were surprised to see the Chefs jettison Alex Smith - he was far from their biggest problem the last few years. Secondly, why even bother to talk trash here? Neither of our teams are winning anything anytime soon. We're stuck with VJ, who can't even figure out how to work his headset. You guys have Andy Reid, who does things like running out the clock on himself and forgetting that Kareem Hunt is on his team.

The Broncos have won twice as many AFC Championship games (8) as the Chefs have playoff games (4). Silly Chef fans acting like they matter.

Remember that time Tim Tebow led the Broncos to a win in Arrowhead after only completing two passes?

There should be a sub-forum where all these yearly "Chiefs are the best ever!" threads can be stored and reflected upon for posterity.

Hes going to be the quarterback of the future. Hes going to be a great quarterback. He has great scramble ability. He can scramble and throw the ball. Hes going to be a great quarterback.

Aqib Talib - I saw enough of Patrick Mahomes to think Alex Smith is going to be a free agent next year, That guy can play some ball. That guy can play some ball. Hes smart. I saw him checking protections, I saw him reading the defense. We know how strong his arm is. The guy is a competitor. I think Alex Smith, he definitely might be on the market this year.

The guy (Mahomes) got an AK-47 for an arm. He can throw it wherever he wants. It doesnt matter if hes running left or right. Hes got a gun for an arm and it shows on the field.


Or...mabye take a look at this breakdown. Baldy does these all year long for a lot of players and teams...pretty good stuff.

http://www.nfl.com/videos/baldys-bre...fs-Film-Review
You don't have to convince us that your team is good. Your team has to go out and be good. The latter is where the Chiefs always have and always will fall short. There are plenty of kool aid drinking Chef fans out there that can say what you're saying but the problem is that your team will fail you once again.

Soon the local tv station will be buying up tickets again to avoid a blackout then you will hire some coach or draft another decent player and the seats at that s#!*hole you call a stadium will fill up once again with the Chiefs Kingdom "faithful". The ability of Chiefs fans to bounce back and crawl out of their hole time and time again is truly impressive.

There's really not a lot to do in Kansas City until football season starts, so I understand why the OP is here. It's either watch KC football, bother members of real teams on their message boards, or this:
