2022 NFL Preview: We’re about to find out if the Chiefs are a long-lasting dynasty | yahoo/sports

https://sports.yahoo.com/2022-nfl-preview-were-about-to-find-out-if-the-chiefs-are-a-long-lasting-dynasty-132458918.html

There are plenty of teams that looked like they’d win for many, many years — some with great quarterbacks — and they never make it back to a Super Bowl after their first couple. It could be Dan Marino’s Miami Dolphins, Brett Favre’s Green Bay Packers, Kurt Warner’s St. Louis Rams, Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints, Aaron Rodgers’ Packers, Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks … sometimes budding dynasties end way before we think they will. The NFL is competitive. Nothing is ever guaranteed.

Thoughts?

Kareem Hunt has requested a trade from the Browns after not receiving a contract extension, per @MaryKayCabot

The Browns have declined. @brgridiron

He was all-world with us.
He has been serviceable back-up in Cleveland.
The year we lost him, our offensive production in games with him were almost identical to those without him.
I’d give up a 7th for him. I don’t see the value. Maybe Andy could turn him all-world again, but I doubt Clark is over being lied to his face.
And unless he’s getting paid league minimum, what on earth does he think he’s done to deserve a hold out? Shows that his judgement hasn’t improved over the years.

Kareem Hunt has a 4.4 ypc in 3 years at Cle.

CEH has a 4.4 ypc here.

Kareem already making $6mil this year and wants more.

And all that is before we remember he lied to Reid and Clark Hunt.

Almost inevitable. If he hasn’t learned by now to move to the ball rather than waiting feet planted for the pass to come to him like I saw a couple of times last year…
