I think we all underestimated just how good the 49ers are this season. Considering how fast they're able to run the ball and score with most of their players being as fast as Tyreek Hill might actually pose a considerable threat to the Chiefs' defense. Defense wins games but so does speed. Guess it just goes to show that it takes more than being an all-star quarterback, a wide receiver, and a tight end to get the job done on a regular basis. The media gives us the illusion that those key elements matter when it comes to American football when in reality it's never a certainty.
The teams that should've won lost while the teams that should've lost won this season. I think this is really due to a younger generation of new NFL players who have more energy than those that are reaching their 40's which is retirement age. Guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers aren't what they used to be which is why we're seeing new blood like Patrick Mahomes, Baker Mayfield, and Jimmy Garoppolo. Peyton Manning already saw the writing on the wall when he gracefully retired from Denver's last Super Bowl win. At least this is a lot better than a 2020 Cowboys vs. Patriots Super Bowl matchup.
