'If Garoppolo gets better the 49ers will be a juggernaut' | Cian Fahey

While the Kansas City Chiefs are a team capable of building a dynasty, Patrick Mahomes should be happy if he wins three Super Bowls in his career, according to Cian Fahey.

The American Football analyst was speaking on The Snap and was unconvinced that the Chiefs would be able to sweep all before them in the next ten years or so with Mahomes as the quarterback.

While Mahomes is currently recognised as the best quarterback in the NFL, Fahey believes there are a number of others who aren’t far off the Chiefs star.

“Look, we’re talking about the Chiefs because the Chiefs won this year. They won the Super bowl so obviously they’re the focal point.

“If you told me to pick between two teams and the Ravens and the Chiefs were offered to me - I don’t really see one as being significantly better than the other.

“I think the dominant teams for the next decade are those two teams and the question is, can anyone else join them?

“Let’s go back 12 months. What did the Patriots do in the Championship game to the Chiefs and to Mahomes? They contained Mahomes.

“But this is the thing, we’re talking about containing Lamar Jackson in a game where he had 500 yards. It’s a crazy, crazy narrative we’re running with just because they lost that game,” Fahey said.

Mahomes was the difference in the end between the Chiefs and the Sand Francisco 49ers in this year’s Super Bowl but Fahey was confident that Jimmy Garoppolo was capable of getting better and leading his side to glory.

“If Jimmy Garoppolo gets better that 49ers team is going to be a juggernaut. So the 49ers are there, the Ravens are there, the Chiefs are going to have to play the Patriots too because they’re not going to go anywhere with Bellicheck still there.

“You’ve got a bunch of these teams who are going to be pretty damn good who are going to be beaten easily by the Chiefs.

“If the 49ers are a juggernaut, the Chiefs are a juggernaut and the Ravens are close to a juggernaut, how are they going to win five Super Bowls in 10 years?” Fahey commented.

While Mahomes is in no way guaranteed to pick up another few Super Bowl wins, the Chiefs quarterback certainly has the time to do so, with one under his belt at the age of 24.
