Former Jets WR ‘not worried about Patrick Mahomes’ despite offseason struggles as Chiefs pursue unprecedented three-peat

The Kansas City Chiefs’ goal is to win three Super Bowls in a row. This ambitious goal has proven elusive even for the NFL’s greatest dynasties, such as the Dolphins of the 1970s and the Patriots over the course of their 20-year existence. Despite these challenges, Chiefs remain determined to make history.

The team, led by HC Andy Reid, is working hard to achieve this unrivaled achievement. On The Carton Show, host, former Jets WR Plaxico Burress, remains optimistic about the Chiefs’ chances. He believes that if any team can make a three-pointer, it’s the Kansas City Chiefs, primarily because of Mahomes.

First, Carton mentioned an interesting theory about the Chiefs’ schedule. He suggested that the NFL could have paid attention to Taylor Swift’s concert schedule when organizing Chiefs games. Despite such distractions, Carton highlighted the numerous challenges the team faced. He emphasized that no team has ever won three Super Bowls in a row.

Responding to Craig, Plaxico said: “If there’s any team that can do it, it’s Kansas City. I’m not worried about Patrick Mahomes because he’s motivated. I understand all the things that are going on for the Kansas City Chiefs off the field, but when they line up and play the Baltimore Ravens in Thursday’s opener, they’ll be ready to go. Burress’ confidence comes from his belief in Mahomes’ ability and the team’s resilience.

Because the Chiefs’ goal is something no team has ever achieved, this goal has caught the attention of many football fans and pundits, including NFL legends Tom Brady and Michael Lombardi. Tom Brady recently shared his thoughts on the Chiefs’ chances during an episode “Herd.”

Brady and Lombardi doubt Chiefs’ ability

Brady acknowledged how difficult it is to win one Super Bowl, let alone two, and expressed doubts about winning three in a row. “Winning one Super Bowl is extremely difficult. Winning two games back to back is almost impossible. There’s a reason no one in the history of the sport has won a third straight title.” he said.

Michael Lombardi, a former Patriots employee and executive of football, echoed Brady’s concerns on his show “The Lombardi Line”. Lombardi cited several legendary QBs who failed to three-peat, including Bart Starr, John Elway, Tom Brady and Troy Aikman. “All these quarterbacks have won two in a row and haven’t been able to win three. “It’s really hard,” he said. Michael also mentioned that the Chiefs had some lucky moments last season that helped them secure their second straight Super Bowl win. He suggested that relying on luck for a third victory might be unrealistic.

Despite challenges and doubts from experts, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes remains confident. He believes in his ability to lead his team to another Super Bowl victory. Whether they succeed or not, the Chiefs’ quest to achieve this historic goal will be an exciting journey for football fans.
