      Reid's coaching has always been just fine. But his teams have always been paper-thin. Some years, the one playmaker he had was broken down by the 16 games just GETTING those teams to the playoffs. But Reid didn't rush anybody back onto the field from injuries. Let backups play as needed - and they were needed a lot - all year. They had their struggles. But they came out of it with starters with fresher legs, and backups with important experience. And they learned that those backups had game. And they learned how to play together, with the new guys on the field. It kind of worked out, perfectly, although it seemed like adversity at the time.

          I am not a chiefs (browns fan unfortunately) but they were spectacular. Kelce, Mahomes and all of them. I have become a very big Mahomes fan and now a Kelce fan over the past two years. They may not be my favorite team but they are one of my top 4

                    He's the Brett Favre of our era and throws less interceptions! He's liked and respected by nearly all fan bases and brings a level of excitement that was desperately needed back in the game. As a lifelong chiefs fan I'm so thrilled to FINALLY have a QB of his caliber on the team. The young man is handling the pressure and fame really well here in KC. Dude's going to get a record breaking contract soon too.

                      @Mike Young I'm just so impressed by this young man. I love how others centered he is. When the media sets him up for self glorification, he always acknowledges his teammates, every time. I live in the KC area....good times all around last night.

                    Mahomes career best 450 yards vs titans wasn't enough to win.
                    Kc has lost like 5 games straight vs Titans.
                    Andy reid is 1-8 vs titans even with former Superbowl teams.
                    You talking heads are reaching into your gut feeling for the chiefs
                    I've heard excuses and hypotheticals to why you think they win against the Titans but you could do the would've could've for the pats and kc is a #4 seed not 2.
                    That's how close to being a low seed they are right now.
                    34-27 Titan up!
                    Ryan already down 2 score late in 4th qtr threw TN to a comeback win over kc.
                    Titans defense and Ryan are just too much for kc..
                    Henry and mahomes gonna get theirs .

                      Mahomes (and the CHEIFS) will win it ALL simply for the FACT that we have to sit through all of those God-for-SAKEN State Farm commercials DURING THE PLAYOFF "GAMES"!!!!!

                      Hey Dadson the only issues i have with your logic is 7 of those 8 losses against the titans werent Mahomes and company. So to put it simply its more accurate to base your decision on loss number 5 for team and loss number 8 for Andy. The other 11 arent accurate anymore since its a completely different Chiefs team. Also you cant deny that the missed field goal in the regular season againts your Titans wouldnt have made a difference. Say what you want but i dont think it will be as easy as you think.

                    Guys the chiefs is only one playoff game better with mahomes than they were before. 2017 kc was hosting wildcard vs Titans. They lost but in 2018 &19 mahomes has only got them one game better.

                      Mahommes did more than make plays - he was a leader - he put fire in his team and they responded. All due respect to reid as well in that department. A steady ship will finish the race almost assuredly ahead of the rest.

                            @Vossler Henrick we just gonna ignore that brady had randy moss, wes welker, gronkowski, and Edelman throughout his career as well as a great defense? Lol Mahomes torched defenses even when tyreek hill was out

                            @Patricks Arm First off, Texans defense is incredibly suspect in dealing with QB that are mobile. Mahomes is nowhere near fast as Lamar and he still burned their defenders multiple times. Lamar literally played the Texans like it was child's play. It shows more that the Texans defense is straight up garbage. Tom Brady is still the best by a FAR margin because he makes average players look better. Mahomes is loaded with weaponry for his offense. If he truly wish to be great; he's going to put in work once his rookie contract goes away and he eats up a lot of the CAP = talent getting traded elsewhere.

                            You must be a Texans fan. Good players don't do what he did. Hall of Famers do. And won the MVP his first year starting. 50 TDs and over 5000 yards.Lost the AFC championship game? His defense lost them the game. Yeah I guess he's average.

                            Mahomes is the best quarterback of all time. Nobody has the arm talent he has, and nobody has put up the numbers he has. When it is all said in done, he should have surpassed every other quarterback in the league.

                              @Susan Maggiora Compared to other positions, it's much easier to stay healthy and play into your late 30s as a QB. The real question is how long is the team going to have this offensive talent and coaching? (which you also alluded to). Mahomes is on a GOAT trajectory right now. If he gets patriot level defence in his career.... oh lord.

                              Jack Hollis I agree. But a lot has to go right for that to happen. I think people underestimate how hard it is to stay healthy for 10/15 years as a QB. Plus, he’ll have to deal with different head coaches & lots of players. But I’d love nothing more than to see him break every record in the book (Not Favre’s interception record of course 🤣)

He's everything you could ever want as a QB, a teammate, an ambassador of the game of football and the city of KC. Grats on the win, KC fans; I'm sincerely rooting for your boys to go all the way.

                              Nah, Mahomes will be paid and bankrupt the team thus devoiding the team of half their talent. The reason why Belichick is successful is because he doesn't overpay players, he runs that team like a corporation.

                                Pat Mahomes has made it to the AFC Championship game 2 years in a row. Those two years are also his first two years as a starter. Any arguments are over at this point.

                                  @Ziroidex So, Lamar Jackson had about 360 passing yards and 149 rushing yards. Titans beat them pretty convincingly.

                                    The ghost of Blackledge is vanquished no matter how it turns out. Win or Lose, Mahomes will be back next year as well.

                                  Mahomes was on all game, his offense didnt show up until the 2nd quarter. D really only gave up 10 to the Texans during that calamity.

                                    That's what no one seems to talk about much. Texans only really drove the field to about 17. Chiefs got a gift with the fumble, but other than that it was done through normal offensive play.

                                    and his receivers decided it was ok to catch a ball when it hits them in both hands.
