Re: I want one of the AFC teams to win the Super Bowl

I would prefer seeing the Chiefs win it all. It would be good for the league too knowing they have Mahomes and we need to start moving on from the generation of old man QBs (Brady, Brees, Rodgers) who are past their prime yet everyone argues they are the GOAT or whatever.

K.C. is a long snake-bitten franchise. While we have the biggest persecution complex of all NFL teams and think everyone is out to get us and conspiracies are had to explain why Payton gets out-coached and our QB screws up in the playoffs, the Chiefs haven't won a SB in over 50 years and their playoff losses have been more agonizing than ours solely for that reason.

If you think our playoff losses are bad in this decade, go through K.C's 90s playoff losses. Most of them were at Arrowhead and they lost on flukey stuff with some of their franchise best teams not even winning a single playoff game. They were a legit SB contender in 1995 and 1997 and both of those seasons were lost due to missed field goals. Unlike us, their fans don't have a recent SB to fall back on and cherish the memories.

I don't trust Andy Reid though. His clock management vs the pats last year shows he still hasn't figured out how to fix this. I believe they actually match up well with Baltimore though and could engage them in a shoot out, but Reid will screw that up.

Other than that, I'd be happy for Mark Ingram if the Ravens got him a ring.
I'll be happy if they knock out the Packers.

Brady, Brees and Rodgers all going one and done in the same year would be hilarious and well deserved.

Anybody but San Francisco. At this point I'd rather see Atlanta win it than San Francisco.

Now I've gotta go wash my mouth out with soap...

Don't mind Russell, but hate Pete, I was in LA when he torpedoed USC then ran off scott free. F Rodgers and his agents.

Same here. Carroll and Payton are the most hated NFC coaches from my experience with other teams' fans.

Kidding aside, that's my single biggest issue with Stinky Pete as well; but I've so enjoyed his very public coaching meltdowns (e.g. 1 yd out and called a pass play, intercepted, instead of Beastmode)...

Andddddd he did it again in week 17. Took a delay of game penalty and backed them up, forcing 4 passes from Wilson to the end zone.

I'm glad the Patriots beat them in that SB. The Seahawks would've become the first NFC team since the 90s Cowboys to win back to back SBs. Their bandwagon was already unbearable up to that point. The Pats did us a favor, just like they did when they ended the GSOT Rams, beat the Cinderella Panthers, 28-3 Falcons and beat the Rams again.

I'd be fine with the Texans, Titans or the Chiefs. The other teams can go suck on a tailpipe.
