Tom Brady knows a thing or two about the arduous road ahead for the Kansas City Chiefs.

There's a reason that the most accomplished player in the history of American football says a three-peat. He was unable to accomplish the feat himself—whether with the New England Patriots or Tampa Bay Buccaneers—and given his list of records, that says quite a bit.

Then again, the Kansas City Chiefs are already paving a new path with their present run of success. The idea of a three-peat is very much on the table with the youth, talent pool, and coaching continuity in the Chiefs' organiation these days, so it's not some esoteric idea.

The Chiefs are presently the favorites to win this year's Super Bowl and pulling off another championship run would make it three in a row after knocking off the San Franciso 49ers last winter and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2022. The Chiefs are already the first team in 20 years to win consecutive rings since the Pats in 2002-03.

In a recent interview with Colin Cowherd, Brady spoke about a number of subjects and addressed the Chiefs' ability to win three Lombardi Trophies in a row. It's clear he has a lot of respect for Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, Travis Kelce, and company, but he also knows the variables in play—including luck and health.

"All these teams in the NFL are competitive, they are all well coached," said Brady. "The margin of error is razor-thin, so to win one Super Bowl is extremely difficult. To win two back-to-back like the Chiefs have done, in the history of the sport nearly impossible.

"To win three in a row, there’s a reason no one’s done it. The reason no one has won three in a row is because it’s hard to win one in a row. So to put three of those together in back-to-back-to-back seasons with drafting last, a very hard schedule, all the turnover in free agency, guys continuing to be motivated. It’s a big challenge."
