Super Bowl LIV: 3 reasons the New Orleans Saints would’ve beat the Chiefs
Undoubtedly, the Chiefs have the Saints beat when it comes to depth in the receiving core. Outside Michael Thomas, the Saints receivers are inconsistent and dusty. However, there’s no denying that Thomas would’ve been the best receiver on the field.
The Chiefs have no receiver on their roster whose level of talent rises even close to the level of play Michael Thomas is capable of.
His NFL record 149 receptions last season is nearly as many as Travis Kelce’s and Tyreek Hill’s 2019 receptions combined (155). That’s the type of production he could’ve taken in the Super Bowl.
Throw Michael Thomas’ Hall-of-Fame caliber talent at a lackluster Chief’s secondary, and you’re giving Drew Brees an ideal scenario. As long as New Orlean’s offensive line would up to the challenge of Chris Jones, Drew would be comfortable all night long.
