The Chiefs are trying to become the first team in NFL history to win three consecutive Super Bowls, considered one of the favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy with arguably the most talented roster in the sport.

Appearing on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Tom Brady commented about how difficult the Chiefs' path to a three-peat is. He was quick to point out how small the margin of error is, which is true, though he sounds a bit worried about Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' chances to eventually one-up his legacy.

His take in this clip is measured and fair, though I think there's something in the back of his mind worried and amazed the Chiefs have a real chance to win their third Super Bowl in a row.

Tom Brady Comments on Chiefs' Chance to Three-Peat

Brady talked about how close Kansas City came to losing to San Francisco, saying, "it was an incredible comeback and they played really well at the end where the margin of error was razor thin. That’s the way it’s going to be for them this year as well."

He brought up his 2007 Patriots team that went undefeated before losing in the Super Bowl as well, and he's where I think the worry sets in. "We go to the Super Bowl, we played less than our best game, the Giants played an awesome game and they ended up beating us," said Brady.

"To win two back-to-back like the Chiefs have done, in the history of the sport...nearly impossible," he continued. "To win three in a row, there’s a reason no-one’s done it."

Not even Brady himself could win three straight Super Bowls. He's got an untouchable resume right now, but Mahomes has a chance to accomplish something the man he's chasing never could. If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl this year, giving Mahomes his fourth with five appearances, you can bet sports shows and media will reconsider the "Greatest of All-Time" debate.

Brady praised the Chiefs, singling out Andy Reid, Mahomes, Kelce, Rashee Rice, Chris Jones, and Steve Spagnuolo. He was respectful, though I think he knows he'll be looking over his shoulder if Mahomes pulls off this three-peat.

He'll have a front-row seat to the drama with this being his first year as an analyst at FOX. For Brady, it'll be an interesting year in more ways than one.
