Chiefs fans will always remember where they were when the team won Super Bowl LIV.

Finally, after 50 long years of heartbreak, the Kansas City Chiefs are on top of the mountain. Traveling to and from the Miami area during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, it was obvious that most of the nation was cheering for a Chiefs victory.

On game day at our hotel, our Chiefs gear got favorable comments about the team, Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. I still think Patrick Mahomes could get elected as President of the United States.

The team has come together and developed a close relationship. They pulled together as a cohesive unit and, to the man, loved the coaching staff that they played for this year.

Reid deserves the admiration he has received. He is a class act who handles himself with integrity. He respects all of his opponents and expects the same of his team. The media gurus will have to stir up another negative topic over the next few months rather than to discuss Coach Reid’s inability to win the big one.

Kansas City currently seems to possess the No. 1 sports icon in the world with Mahomes. He did not have his best game, yet he won MVP of the Super Bowl. He led his team on a comeback for the third playoff game in a row with a 21-point fourth quarter. He is the type of athlete you can explain in no other words than “he is a winner.” He has the it factor and will only continue to improve under the watchful eye of Reid.

Both of these super talents work together as one mind with the Chiefs offense. The organization should be able to sign Mahomes to a long term deal, which should continue to maintain a bright future.

Look for Mahomes to work with the team in his contract negotiations about a well-deserved salary and still allow the team to acquire talent under the salary cap. Mahomes is a team guy who understands the importance of good teammates to surround him and win football games. Football is the ultimate team sport and Mahomes is a genius at achieving that.

For now, it is time for the entire Chiefs Kingdom to enjoy the Super Bowl championship ride with the parade and awards to be given out and a fond memory of the exciting games of the 2019 season. The Kansas City Chiefs will be the talk of the sporting world for the next full year leading up to the next Super Bowl.

My money is on another run next year. It is great to be a Chiefs fan!

I have a saying that I used as a motivational statement while coaching that goes along with a championship victory. It is, “How do you feel when you win and how do you feel when you lose and how do you want to feel?”

Chiefs fans now know the response.
