What Does it Take?



It is never certain that the last gasp is a winning move. But, the last placed looked is where you find what you are looking for :) Car Keys, Wallet, and Whatever is important is found there. Super Bowl Championships are more elusive. How many have searched for those and as NFL teams and fans of said teams come up short? What does it take to win that elusive goal we seek? Luck, Personnel, and a Plan to compete at a Super Bowl level repeatedly for a number of years will Maybe garner a Championship of the NFL.

2. Not famous; obscure: an inglorious young football player.

Who remembers those guys?

All Are Kansas City Chiefs World Champions. It took all of these guys to win a Super Bowl and Hank Stram and his coaches. Lamar Hunt and his staff.

And us the Chiefs fans.

We have been on the cusp of winning Super Bowls any number of times. We had everything in place to WIN.

Considering, not winning the ultimate versus being the best team in a given season wins no awards. We have been the best team in the NFL a number of times with NO great reward.

To me:) Those were great seasons as a fan and not failures in anything except the premature endings. Winning SB's to many is a determinate of a successful season.
