'Terrifying' For League to See Chiefs Get Better in 2024

The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season with what some called Patrick Mahomes' worst supporting cast since he became a full-time starter in the league.

In a year that the Chiefs weren't at their best, it was looked upon as "the" chance to finally dethrone Mahomes, yet no one managed to do it.

Now, after signing Marquise Brown and drafting Xavier Worthy, the Chiefs have bolstered Mahomes' weapons, which former NFL David Carr says will be terrifying for the rest of the league in 2024 because of what it means for Travis Kelce.

“It’s gotta be terrifying for the rest of the league to see the Super Bowl champions get better,” Carr said on NFL Total Access. “Everyone’s trying to catch them. All they do is create more space for their tight end [Travis Kelce], and that’s what this is about. Creating space, obviously, for the run game, those speed guys, they don’t have to be completions, it’s just the fact that they’re down there, it creates so much room in between the numbers where Patrick [Mahomes] loves to work with Travis [Kelce]. This just opens everything up."

With the Chiefs' offense being middle of the pack last season regarding scoring (15th, 21.8 points per game) and Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice being the dominant forces, Kansas City needed more of a spread of contributors despite winning the Super Bowl.

Now, with the additions of Brown and Worthy, the Chiefs have two speed burners who not only stretch the field but will also open up space for Kelce to do his work. Pick your poison.

The future Hall of Famer had a down year in 2023 (93 rec, 984 yards, five TDs), but with the shiny new additions, perhaps things will open up in the middle of the field.

And as Carr states, that is a terrifying thought for Kansas City's opponents in 2024.
