Chris Jones promises “five-plus” rings for the Chiefs

The Chiefs will be writing big checks to Chris Jones. Chris Jones has written an even bigger check to the football gods.

Appearing on KCSP 610 Sports Radio, Jones made a bold vow for the future performances of the defending Super Bowl champions.

“This is only the beginning,” Jones said. “We plan to have another parade and another parade and another parade. We’re going to make sure we bring not one, not two, not three, not four, but five-plus rings to Kansas City. It’s been 50 years of waiting, but the wait is over now. It’s time to create a dynasty.”

Five-plus rings definitely would constitute a dynasty. And while it’s not impossible, it’s also not going to be easy. In the 2019 postseason, the Chiefs had to climb off the ropes in every game, down 24 vs. the Texans down 10 twice vs. the Titans, and ultimately down 10 with seven minutes left against the 49ers, in order to get the franchise’s first Super Bowl win in 50 years.

And everyone will be gunning for the Chiefs, year in and year out for as long as Patrick Mahomes plays quarterback for the team.

If they can indeed pull off “five-plus” championships with Mahomes, the player who currently is the best in the league will indeed be regarded as the best ever. And that contract the Chiefs got him to sign will get better and better.

  1. The delusion.

    This is stage 1 of the sb hangover.

    They will never see another ring with this group of people, if ever again.

    Brees, Rodgers and Wilson say hi.

  2. Keep talking, just like Seattle and Philly, you won’t win another one, one year “dynasty”

  3. I would start talking about more than 5 the day you win 5, not saying the Chiefs don’t have the potential to be great but slow your roll man.

  4. Whatever , why can’t a team be happy they won it and keep there mouths shut. Always “the next” dynasty

  5. Well now I know they will never win another one anytime soon. It is extremely hard to even make it to the Super Bowl let alone win it.

  6. Andy Reid has won a lot of football games, but he never had the luxury of a HOF QB until now. Reid and Mahomes make a lethal combination. Trevor Lawrence’s career will just about mirror Mahomes’, and then there’s Joe Burrow. Three young studs battling in out for the next 15 years or more. Five rings? The Chiefs might just do that. With or without Chris Jones.

  7. They’ve got a chance this year, if there’s a season. But after that the salary cap monster will wreak havoc.

    By the way, not for nothing but you guys had to come from behind in each playoff game this past year. It’s not like you stomped your way to a SB ring. Kudos to the Chiefs for making plays, but you were 8 mins away from the 9ers talking about winning 5 instead.

  8. Mr Chris Jones, you just put a target on your team, like if the rest of the NFL needed more motivation

  9. If he’s wrong, he has to give back all of the money the Cheifs pay him between now and the end of his career.

  10. Slow your roll? Mahomes is still a kid and has an MVP and a ring. I don’t doubt that he could make that happen… he’s special.

  11. Because winning a SB is no big deal anymore. Even the Jets and Saints have won 1. Most teams win it one year and are afterthoughts the next. Until some team challenges 6 SBs in 18 years, let the yawning begin

  12. Five? I guess with that new contract everything is red colored roses again. Chefs will be lucky to even get to another.

  13. Would you rather pay him millions to want to lose in the divisional round every year? They may or they may not. But of all the teams out there Who wound you bet your rent money on? Mahomes and KC

  14. One Mahones injury..and by the way he plays..that is a matter of time and they become a very pedestrian team. God forbid he has a knee injury and has to become a pocket passed with no money for an offensive line. I hope for the best, but I am a realist and think the last true dynasty died last year.

  15. Extremely hard to win one. Dam near impossible to win two in a row. Three? Starting to laugh. Five? Now that’s something!

  16. Like the Patriots, the Chiefs will benefit from playing in a division with no competition.

    It’s refreshing that Mahomes said he’d leave money on the table for Jones and he did, and that Jones said he’d sign up for repeats and the Hall of Fame vs. trying to get the most money, and he did.

    All Superbowl champs have targets on them. For lousy teams, like the Chiefs for decades, beating a Superbowl team is like winning the Superbowl. I doubt Jones comments will change that dynamic.

  17. His only chance at seeing five rings is if football somehow quickly became an Olympic sport.

  18. You’re getting ahead of yourself big man. I recall Lebron talking that crap in Miami…

    _________________________

    Especially after the salary cap monster takes a few HUGE bites out of the cap after this season, with COVID and the drop in viewership because of all the protest and then the bids for the new TV deal will go through the floor, it all leads up to the cap going down to $160-150mil in the next 3-4yrs so good luck fielding a decent team paying out the $$$ KC handed out to just 2 players! If the cap does go down to what I predicted or anywhere close the Chiefs will have 40% of their cap room in just 2 players.

    Fastest way to kill a dynasty is overpay the QB, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

  20. Let’s all get angry at Chris Jones for being excited about his contract and playing on the same team as Mahomes. Come on people it’s harmless fun. It’s a game

  21. That’s a pretty tall order. KC is pretty set for the next couple of years but repeating isn’t easy. It’s gonna take multiple stellar draft classes and team friendly deals to even come close to getting 5+

  22. Whatever you say, champ.

    I can only assume that he was somehow taken out of context, or joking. Nothing else would explain that level of delusion.

  23. C’mon Chris don’t embarrass yourself, it’s not happening. Even Mahomes doesn’t believe you.

    The same could have been said about Aaron Rodgers following the 2011 season (won the SB in 2010, MVP in 2011) his team has never been back to the Super Bowl.

    Russell Wilson doesn’t have an MVP, but a pretty good pedigree. Super Bowl in year 2, Super Bowl appearance in year 3. His team hasn’t been able to get back since he got his big money contract.

    Ben Roethlisberger won a Super Bowl in his second season, they haven’t won another one since, although they did lose to Aaron Rodgers.

    Mahomes is a great QB, but getting to the Super Bowl is really hard. Winning the Super Bowl is even harder. You have to get a lot of breaks along the way and you have to have players (besides the QB) step up and play well above their contract value. Last year the Chefs D stepped up and played way above the sum of their parts, especially in the defense. Without the defense continuing to play at that level, the Chefs won’t win games based just on the offense scoring a lot of parts. 2 examples of that, the first being an individual game in 2018 where Mahomes led the offense to 51 points, and the Chefs still lost the game. The second being the KC teams of the early 2000’s, where they would score at will, and then fail to win big games because they can’t stop anyone.

    Mahomes is a great QB, the Chefs are certainly looking good heading into the 2020 season, but they will still need a lot of things to go right to get to and win another Super Bowl.

  25. The Eagles promised their fans a dynasty, and we all know how well that worked out

  26. What he meant to say was “ I respect all of our opponents and if everyone works really hard , we have a chance to win one again someday “

  27. Pat is the truth and worth every penny but it’s hard to build a team with the salary cap ramifications of paying 1 player that kind of money. The hoodie seems to be testing that theory this year. Interesting that Patriots apparently had interest in Lamar predraft and McDaniels gambled his first head coaching career on Tebow…

  28. Message for Chris Jones: care to make it interesting?

    I’d be happy to wager what would be pocket change to you.

  29. Funny, the only real dynasties in the Super Bowl era – Steelers in the 70s, 49ers in the 80s/90s, and the Patriots in the 00s/10s, made no promises.

  30. Not only will the Chiefs NOT win 5 SB’ with you, they won’t do it without you. You won’t likely be with the team come 2022, where it costs the team zero dollars in dead money if they were to cut you, yet save $22.3 million against the cap.

    The Chiefs are likely showing you the door in 2022, so the highest # of rings you could get would be 3. But we all know that won’t happen, even with the Chiefs the team to beat as defending SB Champs…..

  31. They’ve got a chance this year, if there’s a season. But after that the salary cap monster will wreak havoc.

    ===

    It won’t actually. Mahomes doesn’t kick in until the 2022 season which is already accounted for what the cap should do. Then starting in 2023 you will have the new TV deals which will push it up. They are also expect gambling to be legalized which will add billions if not double the NFL revenue. So the cap could be upwards of 400 million before Mahomes cap number really starts to hit. Deals like this too never play out fully. IF they win another one in the next 2-3 years they will go back and re-negotiate the deal in like 2025 or 2026.

    ___________________

    The Chiefs were a Dee Ford offsides away from going to the SB in 2018.

    They won by 20, 11, and 11 in their three playoff games last year.

    The AFC is pretty weak right now. As long as the Chiefs have Mahomes and Reid, they have a shot to go to the SB every year.

  33. Do they have the talent? No question. Better done is much better than better said! Good luck but usually better to keep you moth shut! Odds are in favor of 1 and done as opposed to “dynasty”. Time will tell!

  34. Their defense is still pretty weak and the dynasty talk is premature. Let’s not forget Mahomes was awful in the Suoerbowl and it took several bounders
    By San Fran to keep them in the game.

  35. This is right up there with the stupid prediction LeBron James made. “Not one, not two, bla bla bla” just shut up and do it.

  36. Its these kinds of ridiculous statements that get players and coaches in trouble. Take it one year, one game at a time. Win the next game. The rest will follow.

    Jeffrey Lurie is still ridiculed in Philadelphia for the Eagles being “the gold standard.”

    Winning in the NFL is so difficult that players and coaches should hold off the boasting and just give their greatest effort. Fans will respect them for that instead of being unrealistic braggarts.

  37. Sounds Good to me. Chris Jones did predict the CHiefs would win the super bowl, 1 year before they actually did. Go Chiefs.

  38. “Getting the second ring should be easy…”

    Sincerely,

    Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Steve Young, Drew Brees…

  39. This takes me back to speech following The Decision. We all know how it all ended for James in Miami so Jones better remain hopeful the Chiefs don’t take suffer the same fate.

    Love Jimi.

  40. The guy was talking on a local show and playing it up for local fans. Players in all professional sports play to the fans all the time. What did you expect him to say, that the Chiefs are 1 and done?

    Geez, relax people.

  41. atwatercrushesokoye. Correction on your post. Ben Roethlisberger has won two Superbowls and has been to a third.

  42. Even if he was just playing around and showing some enthusiasm, that’s a mighty high bar to set.

    As has already been said many times – it’s really hard to just get back to one, let alone win it again. Teams like the 70s Steelers, 80s/90s 49ers & Cowboys (those three rings can be considered a mini-dynasty) and the Pats…well, there’s the problem. The Pats have made it look too easy in the Belichick/Brady era.

    Coaching, talent, luck and making plays when it counts the most. Hard to get all of those synced up repeatedly.

  43. Super Bowl IV , LIV , then CIV. then …. CLV and so on every 50 years…. given their history they should reach 5 or 6 in a 150 years or so..

  44. I’m old enough to remember when the 1970 Chiefs said this too, it took 50 years to get another ring.

    Btw, they didn’t qualify for the playoffs in 1970.

  45. It gets harder now that the qb isn’t working for peanuts. But as long as you have an elite qb, you have a chance.

    ——

    How ’bout, “We’re going to work as hard as we can and put all of our focus and energy into getting there again this season”.

  47. I think that the Chiefs are one of a handful of teams that have a chance to win a SB this year (assuing that they actually play).

    Chiefs
    49ers
    Bucs
    Saints
    Seahawks
    Ravens

  48. Your QB destroyed the salary cap. It’s a good thing he’s mobile because he’ll be running for his life with 4th rate linemen

  49. Relax everyone. Geez. He only said five. It’s not like he said six…or something….

  50. Anyone who thinks Mahomes plays for this twelve year contract without demanding more, especially if they win one or two more Super Bowls, is chugging the Kool-Aid. The team as constituted now is loaded, many stars, all who will be wanting to get paid, a lot. No way the Chiefs keep this team together for more than a year or two. I admire aiming high but realistically to guarantee such a thing is pure fantasy at this point.

    The have a better chance to become a dynasty than any other team does right now.
    ————————————————————-
    There’s a team out there that has the reigning MVP on a rookie contract. That’s not bogged down with over priced, over payed players, and who consistently kills it in the draft. Sorry, but the team best positioned right now is the Ravens. Patrick and Chris will be watching the Super Bowl in their man caves this year.
