Heck of an Ending

If the Super Bowl had played out like it looked it would with about twelve minutes to play, I think we would have relegated it to the dustbin of ho-hum Super Bowls. There wasn’t much that great that happened in the first three-plus quarters and while the 49rs would have certainly deserved their title, I think we all would have felt a bit letdown that these two clubs gave us such a mediocre game.

Instead we got a great ending as the Chiefs made then plays they had to and turned a 20-10 deficit into a 31-20 win. They have the youngest player to ever win both the regular season MVP and the Super Bowl MVP, and when you consider the deficits they overcame this postseason, this looks like a team setting up for a sustained run of excellence.

But as soon as I type that, I recall that KC went to three of the first four Super Bowls and then waited 50 years to return. Let’s see how the offseason shakes out before we make another prediction.

    One small correction: KC played in two of the first four Super Bowls (I and IV).

    was good game, except the outcome and the poor choice of MVP, 2 picks and a 61 rating should not get you the trophy. Williams with the 2 TDs that put them ahead, first on the screen and then the scamper to ice it. Those two plays seemed meaningful and somehow the QB always gets it.

      Fair point, but they’ve made it pretty clear the default is to give it to the QB.
