The Las Vegas Raiders have been getting beta by the Chiefs for four years now. Obviously, they have gotten a few wins of their own against them, but for the most part, it has been all Chiefs.
Hey, it could be worse though. At least the Raiders haven’t lost to the Chiefs twice a season for the last five years or so.
Mahomes is amazing, even if Raiders fans hate playing him. He is the, or at least the main reason the Chiefs have been so good.
However, the way the Chiefs got him was a bit of trickery. Let’s take it back a bit.
Back in 2017 when Mahomes was drafted, he did a lot of pre-draft interviews, which meant hours of talking to the Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid, to see if the Chiefs wanted to take the kid from Texas Tech.
As Mahomes stated in the video from Travis and Jason Kelce’s new podcast ‘New Heights,’ Mahomes went over plays with Reid for five hours.
The offensive coordinator at the time, Matt Nagy, really wanted the Chiefs to draft Mahomes, so, he gave Mahomes their entire playbook the night before. Mahomes nailed the interview.
Then, later when the draft was actually coming up, Mahomes told the Chiefs that other teams wanted him in the 12th overall pick area. He said that because that’s where he wanted to go, was to Kansas City, and it made the Chiefs trade up to draft Mahomes.
The Raiders have not had anywhere near the amount of success Mahomes and the Chiefs have had in the last four years. And because of what he did, the Raiders have been in hell for the last few years.
