It may be too early to talk about the new dynasty, but the point is that Reid and Mahomes have every chance of making it happen.
Mahomes has been with the Chiefs since 2017 and a quarterback since 2018. It’s only five seasons, but the duo already has two championships and three Super Bowl appearances to their credit. In their five seasons together, they reached five conference finals.
Mahomes is a two-time Ultimate Game Most Valuable Player. For his part, Reid led two different franchises to the Super Bowl. He reached the conference finals at least four times in both associations. Year after year, his teams compete for the highest awards.
“Patrick is a special player like he doesn’t care about that and the same goes for Andy as a head coach. I think we’re not done with winning yet. There are other championships ahead as long as these two stay on board,” tackle-Chris Jones said perfectly in a post-match interview.

For Reid, this victory is significant in terms of his place in history. He secured his place in the Hall of Fame four years ago with his Super Bowl triumph. He is now the fourth-most successful head coach in regular-season history and second in the playoffs.
This victory against his former team further cements his place among the greatest.
There are only 14 head coaches in history who have claimed two or more Super Bowl rings.
In the current context as teams grapple with the salary cap and free agent market, not only is it necessary to have the flair to keep the right elements in place, but also not to hesitate to tackle difficult ones To make decisions.
When the Chiefs realized Tyreek Hill wanted to start his own business elsewhere, Reid said, thanks, good evening, without batting an eyelid. Everyone panicked at the prospect of the Chiefs losing their most dynamic weapon on offense. Reid treated himself to a cheeseburger and got back to work.
That’s why the duo he forms with Mahomes is so impressive. To make bold decisions like that, you first need a quarterback who can adapt to new players. Above all, it needs a quarterback who will buy the recipe without complaining about the ingredients at his disposal.
In that sense, Mahomes is one of the great leaders.
After all, Reid and the organization did well to help him. During the season, they looked for Kadarius Toney, who scored a touchdown and had the longest punt return in Super Bowl history. Two rookies have touchdowns (Skyy Moore and Isiah Pacheco). JuJu Smith-Schuster, another new signing, caught seven assists.
He trusted Reid and it paid off. Mahomes became the first player in history to win more than one championship and more than one Most Valuable Player award in his first six seasons.
With him and Andy Reid, Honor, there will be others.
