After 'a couple free meals,' world champion Chiefs hit 'reset' button

Very few key figures within the Kansas City Chiefs organization had won a Super Bowl before last month, so you could excuse any extended celebrating. But weeks after winning Super Bowl LIV, that hasn't really been the case.cheap custom nfl jerseys

"I don't think so," said safety Tyrann Mathieu, who was chosen by his teammates as their MVP in his first season with the Chiefs. "I try not to get caught up in that. I tend to always reflect on the things I've been through because it kind of keeps me grounded. It keeps me motivated to do more.

"It was such a great feeling to accomplish certain goals you set out to accomplish. My mindset is that it's time to reset and try to do it again. I think we've got a really good team and a really good opportunity. Not every team has the opportunity we have. It's important for us to kind of reset and just get back to work."5

This kind of sentiment is to be expected from Mathieu, one of the more focused players in the Chiefs' locker room last season. But he's also one of the players all the others listen to, so his words carry weight.

On the personnel side of things, at least, the Chiefs are back at trying to build another Super Bowl-worthy roster.

"It was cool to win a Super Bowl," general manager Brett Veach said at the NFL combine. "But we're on already to the next season."

Coach Andy Reid won his first title in 21 seasons as a head coach, 14 with the Philadelphia Eagles and the past seven with the Chiefs. The story of his Super Bowl win and how it cemented his legacy as a Hall of Fame coach was told and retold.buy nike nfl jerseys cheap

"You only have a short time to enjoy that and then you've got to move on," Reid said. "That's where we're at. We took a little time off after the game, after the parade and that, and then we dove right back in and got busy and we're still doing that. That won't stop.

"I stay in the office so I'm kind of isolated a little bit that way. So there's not much change there. I'm sure for the players if you talk to them, they're out there, they're being recognized as world champs. I have gotten a couple free meals. That was nice. But I'm not out there that much to where I'm affected by it too much."

The Chiefs have much to do in preparing for free agency and the draft. Veach and his staff have been at it for some time, but Reid and the coaching staff were only able to dive in after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
