There’s a reason we like to listen to what our friend Nick Wright says about most things, and that’s because the First Things First host lives up to his last name most days of the week. If it makes us biased because we’re all fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, well, we honestly don’t care.
Wright’s been doing some of his best work lately educating viewers and listeners on what is true and false about the Chiefs this year. After all, this is a season in which a lot of false narratives have been spun about Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, and the Chiefs in general. We’ve all read or heard lies about Mahomes being “broken” or the Chiefs being figured out. Andy Reid has also lost his creative genius and opposing teams have exposed the defense.
What no one allowed for was a veteran team with Super Bowl experience to make the requisite adjustments and come back stronger than ever, which is exactly what happened in K.C.
Wright has been a defender of the Chiefs for as long as we’ve known him. He’s also keen to go on the attack when needed, which is what his co-host Kevin Wildes deserved for his previous statements to Wright about the Chiefs.
Here’s what Wright said in the above video: “Everything I said about this team was correct, Wildes. They’re the most dangerous Chiefs team ever. Nothing is wrong with Mahomes. And they are the overwhelming favorites to go to the Super Bowl for the third straight year.” He goes on to defend Mahomes with his strong second half and puts down weird statistical narratives that purport that previous Super Bowl losers must go on to lose even quicker the next year.
We’re thankful for analysts like Wright who actually put forth something substantive in a world of talking heads who often have nothing else to offer but hot air.
