Randy Moss raved about the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this week on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’.
Randy Moss knows a thing or two about winning a Super Bowl and also playing under the weight of great expectations. Thus, he was an ideal guest for ESPN’s show Get Up for host Mike Greenberg earlier this week to answer questions about Patrick Mahomes new contract extension and the Kansas City Chiefs as a team.
What is clear from the beginning is that Moss thinks very highly of pretty much the entire franchise. From head coach Andy Reid to the track team of skill position players on offense to the offensive linemen, Moss praises pretty much everyone ny name or inference in the segment on the Chiefs offense.
However, he saves his greatest praise for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the franchise overall. Specifically he was asked about whether or not the Chiefs have what it takes to become the league’s next dynasty. Moss affirmed the notion.
"“It starts with the quarterback position,” said Moss. “The Kansas City Chiefs have gotten their man and I think that we will be able to see a dynasty coming out of Kansas City.”"
During the interview, Greenberg asked Moss about playing under the weight of such heavy expectations that come with being the single richest player in the NFL today. Moss was considered the best wide receiver in the NFL when he was in his prime, so he knows the demands that come with being known as the best. Moss thinks Mahomes’s shoulders are wide enough for the load.
"“The things I’ve been reading and the information I’m getting from a short career from Patrick Mahomes is that he’s always been able to play at a high level, no matter if it’s basketball, baseball, and now we’re talking about a profession in football. I think he’s up for that challenge. Just in a short NFL career, he has wowed us. He has done some phenomenal things.”"
But that wasn’t all for Moss. When pressed about the ultimate potential of Mahomes from Greenberg, Moss made it clear that he could be even better than very quarterback who gave Moss a Super Bowl ring.
"“We possibly could be looking at the greatest quarterback of all time. No disrepect to Tom Brady to Tom Brady and what he’s been able to accomplish. His Super Bowl rings speak volumes. But when you look at the position, how the position and the game is changing year after year, we could possible be seeing the greatest quarterback that we’ve witnessed.”"
Moss was a six-time Pro Bowler how set league records that still stand today for most receiving touchdowns in a single season (23) and most by a rookie receiver (17).
