The Mahomes Contract

Some people think that Mahomes’ contract will cause a complete meltdown in Kansas City. This was a Catch-22 for the franchise because they had the best player in the NFL on their hands. They knew that it was crucial to pay him a record contract to keep him at Arrowhead Stadium (via NFL.com).

But this also affects their salary cap in a big way and it may prevent them from rebuilding shortly. Expect to see them restructure his deal several times as they attempt to manipulate the cap. But it’s not going to be easy and it may hurt them. Mahomes is a hero now but he may live long enough to become a villain.

Andy Reid’s Playcalling

Reid is a Kansas City icon now but he hasn’t been brilliant in 2023. The head coach is quick to shoulder the blame when his players make mistakes because he wants to ease their burden. We saw this after the Lions defeated the Chiefs in Week One. He’s repeated this multiple times during this season.

It’s a good coaching tactic because it takes the pressure off the players but there’s also no denying that Reid has made mistakes. The head coach has plenty of credit in the bank but 2024 will be a big year for him. Some fans expect him to retire shortly but only time will tell (via KCTV 5).
