Super Dave: Teamwork & The Chiefs

Everywhere I look it's Mahomes this and Mahomes that, and it's getting to the point where you get sick and tired of seeing his name. People go digging to say he's broken this and that record. Makes you wonder if he has set a record for burping in the locker room the most yet? Where is all the news on the other players at? Where are all the comments and posts of the other players' accomplishments this year? It takes a team to win a ball game, not just the quarterback.

But for some reason local fans think Mahomes does it all and we can't make it without him. Twice now Chad Henne has proven he can get the job done but Coach Reid and Mahomes won't allow that to happen. Any bets that's why Mahomes was wanting back on the field so badly in the game with the Jaguars because he was afraid Henne just might prove he can play the game just as well? To me Mahomes does not show himself as a real team player. The Chiefs have a roster of 50 plus men and I'm betting most fans couldn't tell you the names of the players past the top ten. You seldom hear their names due to players such as Mahomes and Kelce gathering all the media attention. I went to a basketball game last night and there was Kelce ruining the limelight for the winning team parading around all over for the cameras.

Henne has proven he can step up yet he's never given a real chance. He's on a team, a part of a team but spends 98% of the season walking the sidelines largely ignored by all. He's good enough to be on the team but seldom  allowed to play. Almost every other player's position rotates out with different players during a game but not Mahomes position.

I might be more of a Chiefs fan if I was watching a real team that showed real honest to goodness team style playing where they were all treated equally and nobody was any better or more valuable than the next guy.  


Special thanks to Dave for sending that note.
