NFL Insiders pick Chiefs to win Super Bowl LIV
 
May be 'Q' or already posted in a megathread somewhere. If so, sorry.

From Bleacher Report:

1. The unstoppable force

In asking a handful of people around the league who they believe will win Super Bowl LIV, what has surprised me—actually stunned me—is how many are confident the Chiefs will blow out the 49ers.

Three assistant coaches and two front office executives with whom B/R spoke all picked the Chiefs, big, and I don't think this belief is isolated.

What is so striking about that view is that I have seen few teams, in decades of covering this sport, more physical—and adaptable—than the 49ers. They are tough, but they are also malleable. They won 9-0 against Washington in a rainstorm and 48-46 on the fast track of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

They can do anything and everything.

But there are good reasons to believe in Kansas City.

First, Andy Reid. It's difficult to put into words how much everyone in football respects Reid as a head coach. He's seen as coaching royalty. This is the second franchise (the first being the Eagles in the 2004 season) he's taken to a Super Bowl.

Second, quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

"There is no defense against Mahomes right now," one NFC assistant coach said. Not even the 49ers, argue the coaches and team execs. To them, no player—at any position—is playing better than Mahomes.

It's taken as an article of faith that team success in the NFL is based upon a franchise's coach and quarterback, and with Reid and Mahomes, the Chiefs have two the league feels are performing at the highest level.

And if the connection clicks again in two weeks, the Chiefs may fly home from Miami with their first championship in five decades.

LMAO

Motivation isn't going to make your guys any faster or smarter.

Pretty interesting the insiders pick Chiefs be a wide margin, and all the media predictions are 6 point for less, mostly two points or less.

Reinforces my opinion the media (especially NFL.com) is in the interest of keeping it level so people tune in.


I do think it will be a close game tho. Well, for the first quarter at least. :D

The 49ers didn’t even really care that much about winning a SB until they saw this article!

I'll never understand trolls who pretend to be fans of the team board they're visiting. It's such a pussy move. "CityOfKansas" LMAO

I think the part that is overlooked is that while Mahomes is certainly the engine that runs this train we were still winning (for the most part) while he was out. This ENTIRE TEAM is extremely good and the defense is much better than most are giving credit to.

I know, right?

Sorry for putting this out there to motivate them. Should have kept it under wraps.

My bad . . . . . . . . . . . :sulk:

That’s what I said in another thread.

The lack of respect for this team that almost beat 2 legit playoff teams without Mahomes is unreal.

But they have nothing to lose just like the titans and Texans :)

Andy has no reason to hold a damn thing back now.

This is going to be his magnum opus, and Mahomes is playing lead violin.

And the entire team is determined to get him that ring.

This is something I didn’t think about until now.

Andy is going to empty his bag of tricks for this one.

We may see some real crazy shit in this game.

I think we're going to see some really interesting plays. Though I doubt we'll see another WR throw the ball.
