The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Pro Football / Are Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes the Next Belicheck and Brady?

Are Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes the Next Belicheck and Brady?

Do they have the potential to follow in those legendary footsteps?

MIAMI, FLORIDA - FEBRUARY 02: Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs celebrates with head coach Andy Reid after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium on February 02, 2020 in Miami, Florida. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)

After 15 playoff failures in 21 seasons that included 6 Conference Championship losses and a Super Bowl loss, Andy Reid finally won the big one. One of the NFL’s most storied coaches finally broke through the glass ceiling that had haunted him for so many years.

But that’s not to say he hasn’t had more talent now than any team he has ever coached.

Although sometimes it has been a suspect defense, talents like Frank Clark and Chris Jones have made sure that the defense has not broken when bending.

Names like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, and last, but certainly not least, Patrick Mahomes, have helped to create one of the most dynamic and potent offenses that the NFL has ever seen. (Thank John Dorsey for that. I’m looking at you, Jimmy Haslam.)

After this win, we are looking at the next dynasty in the NFL.

Andy Reid, at age 61, could coach for another 10 years. He’s one of the most consistent coaches in the NFL, and with the support he has in Kansas City, I wouldn’t expect them to miss the postseason in the next 5 years, minimum. Given that Phillip Rivers has left the Charges and the Broncos perennial QB carousel, the only possible challenger in the AFC West is the Raiders. But Gruden hasn’t proven anything yet, so I’ll put my bets on Reid to have the division on lock for at least a few years.

That brings us to the key piece of the puzzle: Patrick Mahomes.

At age 24, he has already conquered the football world, dazzling fans and players alike with his unworldly arm strength and playmaking ability. Not to mention that his accuracy is nothing to sneeze at, either. With the increased longevity of quarterbacks in today’s game, he’s set to dominate the league for the next 10 years with his skills.

Sure, his regular season was not as strong as last year’s, but he still had a quality year, overshadowed by the emergence of Lamar Jackson. 26 touchdowns with 5 interceptions to go with the No. 2 seed is about as good as you can ask for.

But which QB got it done when it mattered? Mahomes or Jackson? It may be the Manning vs. Brady of the future, but one of those two has six rings and the other has two. I’ll take Mahomes and Reid over Harbaugh and Jackson any day.

The only team that should be beating Kansas City is themselves. As long as they keep finding talent and being willing to risk draft picks to bring in players like Frank Clark, they will be just fine with the Mahomes-Reid duo at the helm.

The Head Coach-Quaterback combination is the most important one out there. And Kansas City has two greats in those roles.

They won’t dominate as much as the Patriots have. But I don’t think that 2 Super Bowls in the next 5 years is off the table.

Book it.
