The Credit Report: Bills AFC Championship

 128 replies

Every week ArrowheadGuys publishes the Credit Report or the Blame Game. We’re giving out props today following the Chiefs win over the Bills

Every week we either play The Blame Game or post the Credit Report, depending on the outcome of the game. With the Chiefs swatting the Bills aside en route to the Super Bowl, we go straight to The Credit Report.

It’s pretty easy how this works. We list the five people most deserving of the credit for this win. As always, readers are encouraged to play along, but you must follow the rules (we have rules here?). You get to choose five, and only five, people who deserve the most credit for the victory and must list them in order. I will list them in order from least to most credit, finishing last with the single person I believe is most responsible for the result of the game. Jump to the comments and do the same. Just remember: rules.

Now, without any further blabbering, let’s get to it.

The Defense:

The defense showed up big in the AFC Championship Game. They came out hitting hard, to the point they had to get a talkin’ to from the refs about playing too hard. They finished with 4 sacks, an interception, 10 QB hits and an NFL record high pressure percentage.

Travis Kelce:

Travis Kelce showed up ready to ball out, and it showed. He finished the day with 13 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns on the Chiefs’ way to their second straight Super Bowl.

Tyreek Hill:

If you thought Kelce had a big day, you shoulda seen what Tyreek Hill did! While it was Kelce and the running backs getting most of the touchdown opportunities, it was Tyreek that was getting them there with his 172 yards on 9 catches.

Patrick Mahomes:

I mean, like, duh. After a week of some sort of speculation to his health, Patrick Mahomes came out and reminded the media why no QB is ready to be compared to him. Mahomes threw for 325 yards and 3 touchdowns against no interceptions in his nearly flawless game.

Andy Reid:

Andy Reid had the entire team ready to play Sunday, except for maaaaaaybe Mecole Hardman. The offense was clicking, the defense was clicking, and the punter had a boring game. Despite my half time concerns over having a lead, Andy kept the pedal down through the second half and never let up until the game was well in hand.

Who are the Top 5 on your Credit List?

Frank Clark was beating their tackles like a drum last night. So was Chris Jones for that matter.

  • On SeatGeek
  • the absolute cheapest Super Bowl ticket available is $8,495 each. That’s to sit in the nosebleed sections in the third deck of Raymond James Stadium.
  • If you want to get in on the 200-level seating, you can’t pay a cent less than $12,000 per ticket.
  • And to sit in the lower bowl will range anywhere from the mid-$12,000 range and up to $42,459 — the most expensive Super Bowl ticket price listed right now.

Ball signed by the loser is 4x more than a ball signed by the winner?

One thing that was apparent last night: the Bills came into the game on an absolute mission to stop the Chiefs running attack, after getting gashed for 245 yards in the earlier meeting. They succeeded in that mission.
The Chiefs scored 38 points.

Andy Reid. Absolute legend.

It was awesome when Mahomes came over and pumped up Hardman after that dropped punt. We as fans can talk shit, but yeah, that’s a real leader there.

We’re about 50 days away from seeing the power of Patrick Mahomes’ contract in action. On March 19th, $40.45M of salary & bonus due in 2023 will become fully guaranteed, increasing his dead cap figure north of $100M.

I logged in to give credit to Anthony Hitchens.

I still want him replaced by a more athletic linebacker. But yesterday, he sniffed out more plays than I could keep count of, and he put the front-7 in the right alignment time after time. Hitchens might have been the most valuable player on defense yesterday.

All right, maybe I’m overstating a little bit. But anyways, Hitchens was a lot more valuable than Matt Milano (snicker).

We know this but here is a huge statistic
WHEN Mahomes wins the Super Bowl, the only quarterbacks with more Super Bowl wins will be
Brady – 6
Montana – 4
Bradshaw – 4
Aikman – 3
He will be tied with Elway, Staubach, Griese, Big Ben, Starr, Plunkett, Eli and Peyton. Mahomes is finishing his third full season. DAMN.

I know that I have been accused of being a homer but there are now only three quarterbacks that can be considered in the running for the title of GOAT – Brady, Montana, and Mahomes. Not saying Mahomes is the GOAT now but he is slowly building a resume that could put him in contention in the future.

Nate Burleson in post game:

Brady’s the GOAT and Mahomes is the KID … and a kid is a baby goat (FWIW: he literally predicted TB v KC beginning of the season)

I caught that as well. A Chiefs victory in two weeks pushes Mahomes into an even higher stratosphere.

Montana – 4-0 in Super Bowls with no picks and was the fuel to the Niners engine.
Brady – 6-4 in Super Bowls (record in two weeks) but holds the all time win and appearance record.
What if Mahomes is 5-0 in Super Bowls when he retires? How close does he have to be? Does he have to get to six victories or seven?

Probably have to wait for Brady to retire, to see exactly where he ends up before we have a great idea of where to set the bar. If we assume Brady loses and retires right after…I would say 6-0 would be necessary. 5-0 is enough to fire up the conversation, but 10 SB’s is just crazy, even he he lost 4 of them. If Pat happens to lose one though….

The scary thing for everyone in the AFC – the Bills might well be the second best team and Josh Allen might well be the second best quarterback in the conference and the Chiefs totally dominated them.

…and it should have been WORSE. Thornhill’s missed INT and Hardman’s muff both led to points and were legitimately makable plays.
