It's tempting to try to get cute and start with something unexpected or surprising—PUNTER!—but the Chiefs have learned to take what they can get on offense and not try to force anything to happen and we're trying to follow suit.

Patrick Mahomes won the league's Most Valuable Player last season as well as 2018 and he finished third in 2020. In five seasons as a starting quarterback, he's been named to the Pro Bowl five times. Even more astounding is that the Chiefs have won 80 percent of the regular season games he's played while hosting five consecutive AFC championship games.

Every metric from every analyst will tell you that Mahomes is an anomaly, an outlier, a once-in-a-generation player who breaks all the rules, resets all the standards, and raises all of the benchmarks. It's routine to discuss the latest records broken because he's piling up production faster than anyone in the history of the NFL.

To talk about any position on the Chiefs as one of strength is to include the one with the best player in the entire sport. Honestly it doesn't matter if Blaine Gabbert or Shane Buechele were to be around or not, but it does help to have an experienced vet and a promising developmental arm also on the roster. But even if the Chiefs rolled with Mahomes and Tyler Palko, we'd still lead with QBs on this list.
