Commings: “There’s No Reason We Shouldn’t Win the Super Bowl”

Well, you can’t say the Chiefs are playing without any confidence.

Sanders Commings, who has yet to play a single snap for the Chiefs, has announce that anything short of the Super Bowl would be a failure.

Sort of.

From the Kansas City Star’s blog Red Zone:

“We want to lead the league in every stat,” Commings said. “That’s not just our defense, our offense wants to do the same as well as special teams. We feel like this Chiefs team should be the best and there’s no reason we shouldn’t win the Super Bowl.”

There are a handful of ways to look at this:

– Commings is overstepping his bounds and putting expectations on his teammates that he won’t be around to backup for at least another couple of weeks.

– Kansas City is a confident football team that is playing so well even the injured reserve guys are talking big game.

– Commings is a rookie who was trying to express the high standards he and his teammates have for themselves. Unfortunately, he has not gone through the veteran course of “How to Talk Forever But Say Nothing.”

There are probably more but they are probably not relevant to what Commings was trying to say.

From a fan’s standpoint, you want to hear the players on your team say something like this. But remember, six weeks ago many of us would have been thrilled with a 10-win season. Now, at 6-0, a 10-win season would mean finishing 4-6. No one would be pleased with that.

So, yes, expectations have changed, but that does not mean “Super Bowl or Bust.” It would be wise for Chiefs fans to think some like “win a playoff game” and then ride whatever wave comes off of that. This team is flawed – too flawed to probably make a long playoff run – but it is also a more than good enough team to beat Cincinnati or whoever comes out of the AFC North in the playoffs.

At the very least, it is cool to see the Chiefs have some real swagger. It’s been a long time.

    No, no, no! ONE game at a time.
    That’s it. Beat Houston this week and move on.
    The last thing this team needs to do is start looking ahead.

    Don’t think it’s looking ahead at all. Isn’t the goal always to try to win the Super Bowl? That should be what ever player on every team should be thinking. That’s why you play the game.

    I agree Stacy!! One game at a time. Let’s focus on Houston then start preparing for THE NEXT GAME!!! Andy won’t let them get ahead of themselves. GO CHIEFS!!!
