K.J. Wright Says NFL Is ‘Looking at a Dynasty’ With Chiefs

With Patrick Mahomes starting at quarterback, the worst the Kansas City Chiefs have done in a season is go into overtime of the AFC Championship Game. Three Super Bowl trips and a pair of rings in five seasons is quite the resume to build, and there’s no denying that Andy Reid’s team has been the NFL’s most successful since Mahomes took hold of the reins back in 2018. Following the club’s Super Bowl LVII win over the Philadelphia Eagles, some have been floating around one specific word this offseason.


Whether the Reid-Mahomes Chiefs qualify as a dynasty right now is up for debate. That isn’t stopping some national media outlets from discussing it, though. Appearing on a recent edition of Good Morning Football, former Super Bowl champion linebacker K.J. Wright praised Kansas City for making this recent success look easy:

When you look at the Kansas City Chiefs, it is looking really, really easy for these guys. Getting back to the playoffs, winning the AFC West, getting back to the AFC Championship — it is looking very easy for these guys. And when you do win a Super Bowl and you’ve got to uphold that standard and uphold that throne… when I look at this offense in particular, I call it ‘controlled backyard football.’ It is hard to stop this offense. When you do play these guys, you’ve got to have a phenomenal offense on the other side of the football or you just simply need these guys to mess it up.

Wright continued, referring to the Chiefs as a dynasty that isn’t going away anytime soon:

When I look at Patrick Mahomes, I look at Travis Kelce, these guys are a once-in-a-generation type of offense. It’s going to be hard to stop these guys. They don’t mess up, they don’t beat themselves. Year in and year out, they don’t let the Super Bowl hangover get to them. They find a way to get back and come poised. You look at this Chiefs team, guys, we’re looking at a dynasty. This team is going to be here for a very, very long time. They’re going to own this division. Andy Reid [and] Patrick Mahomes, it is a beautiful sight to see.

Having two championship victories in the last four seasons probably doesn’t make the Chiefs a dynasty yet, but another win within the next couple of years could push for that specific crown. It’s unrealistic to expect Reid’s group to become the next edition of the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick-era New England Patriots, although the door is left open for them to become the closest thing to it. With the betting markets currently favoring the Chiefs to repeat as champs, Wright’s dynasty declaration could become true in due time if it hasn’t already.
