What Does this Super Bowl Mean to Chiefs Fans?


Mark Scott

As I am sure many of you know, the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions.

Sunday evening, the Kansas City Chiefs topped the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20. This victory was a long time coming for the franchise. After winning Super Bowl IV in 1970, the chiefs haven’t been back since.

Five decades of fruitless playoff runs, loyal Chiefs fans have been through hell and back. Whether it be losing in double overtime to a Dolphin’s field goal, blowing an 18-point first half lead to a Marcus Mariota-ran Titan offense, or losing in last year’s AFC championship game after Tom Brady got the ball first in overtime, the list goes on and on.

Chiefs fans were praying for a win, and that’s what they finally got.

Fans erupted in the Kansas City streets, crying tears of joy and partying through the night. The celebration was so loud that the National Weather Service reported fireworks were detected on their radars.

You can bet there were a lot of sick/personal days used this morning.

With the current success of the team, it is more than likely that the fan-base will spread and become “Missouri’s team,” even though President Trump’s first post-Super Bowl tweet congratulated the Chiefs for representing “the great state of Kansas.”  Regardless, Chief’s gear will certainly be in vogue across Missouri cities like St. Louis, Columbia and Springfield.

While the win meant a lot to the fan-base, it also meant the world to Chief’s head coach Andy Reid. The Super Bowl win was the exactly what Reid needed to punch his ticket into the hall of fame.

Andy Reid Career Accomplishments-

  • 207-128-1 (.618%) record as a head coach
    • (1999-2012 Philadelphia Eagles, 2013-Present Kansas City Chiefs)
  • 7th all-time wins as a head coach
  • 7 Conference Championship appearances
  • 1 Superbowl appearance

Even with all these amazing career accomplishments, Reid didn’t have the Superbowl victory that he needed to guarantee a hall of fame career.

After the Super Bowl LIV victory, the name Andy Reid will live on forever in Canton and will be a part of Football history forever.
