Why Super Bowl 57 Is Crucial For This Chiefs Star’s Legacy

Getting to the Super Bowl is hard. There are only two teams every year that achieve this honor. Some of the best teams ever assembled were not able to make it to Super Sunday. The 1998 Vikings had one of the best offenses ever to set foot on an NFL field. They were led by Hall Of Famers Randall Cunningham, Randy Moss, and Cris Carter to score the most points in a season in NFL history. They had eight All-Pros on that team en route to a 15-1 record in the regular season.

By nearly every statistic and eye test, that Vikings team was the best in the league. Unfortunately, they never got the chance to prove that they were one of the best teams in history. The 1998 Vikings were upset in the NFC Title game because getting to the Super Bowl is hard.

Legacies Are Defined In The Super Bowl

If getting a Super Bowl is hard, then winning one is damn near impossible. Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is nothing short of a legend. He is a first-ballot Hall Of Famer, led his teams to eight playoff appearances in nine years, and finished his career with more passing yards per game than Joe Montana and John Elway, and more touchdowns than Troy Aikman and Steve Young.

Unfortunately, Jim Kelly is not most well-known for his successes. He is most well-known for his failures. Despite leading his Bills to four straight Super Bowls, which is an accomplishment in and of itself, his team lost all four of them. His Bills either ran into bad luck, bad kicking, or absolute buzzsaws. This is because winning the Super Bowl is damn near impossible.

In 20 Years, Will This Super Bowl Be Discussed In GOAT Talks?

Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes finds himself in rarified air in Super Bowl 57. This is his third appearance in only five years as the Chiefs’ starting quarterback. In those five years, his Chiefs have hosted every single AFC Championship game. No other quarterback in the history of the NFL can say that. Mahomes is clearly on the path to G.O.A.T. status and he finds himself with yet another opportunity to build his case.

The main reason why Tom Brady is considered the G.O.A.T. is that he wins when the lights shine brightest. Sure, Brady holds the all-time record for most passing yards and touchdowns, but those are built by longevity and not necessarily greatness. Brady’s seven Super Bowl rings are more than even any franchise in the history of the NFL can boast and that’s what makes him the G.O.A.T. If Patrick Mahomes wants to get within shouting distance of Brady’s crown, he is going to need to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday Night.

Will Mahomes Lead His Chiefs To A Second Super Bowl Title?

Patrick Mahomes is truly a unique talent. He already has two MVPs under his belt to go along with his Super Bowl. He performs magic on the football field the likes of which we have never seen before. He has won two tough playoff games on one leg in these playoffs alone. Mahomes has the will and the drive to become the greatest of all time. He can take a step in that direction come Sunday Night.

His opponent in the Philadelphia Eagles will be one of the most formidable opponents he has ever gone against. The Eagles are one of the most talented and complete teams in the league this year and they will be sure to put up a hell of a fight. The lights will be at their brightest and even Rihanna will be on site to enjoy the festivities. If Mahomes wants to be the G.O.A.T., he is going to have to win this game. Getting to the Super Bowl is hard, but winning it is damn near impossible.
