By Tom Gibson, IL Saints Softball Coach

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the NFL has completed a multi-week study as to what makes the Kansas City Chiefs team so special. They are back-to-back champions, a team for the ages, and I believe we can learn from them to make our teams here at the Saints Prison Ministry better.
Finding #1 – DON’T fire Andy Reid
Out of all of the stats we dug up, this was the most impressive. Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid has been the head coach for the entire Chiefs Super Bowl run. If we figure out a way to hire – and then not fire Andy Reid – we should be on our way to several championship caliber seasons. Andy Reid has only been fired once and our research team is hard at work looking up what dumb team would have ever fired Reid in the first place…
Finding #2 – DO invite the most popular celebrity on the planet to get involved
People like your team more when Taylor Swift is hanging around. The folks upstairs who edit this thing will never give me enough words to share why Taylor Swift will never work out for our ministry but, to cut to the chase, I blame all of the single guys in the ministry who passed over Taylor Swift in their search for true love for our limited exposure.
Finding #3 – DO make Donna Kelce the universal team mom
If Donna Kelce were our team mom, I have no doubt that our uniforms would be cleaner and that our manners would be on point. I am, however, a little worried that Mama Kelce would frown upon the amount of pizza and wings that are consumed on an average Saints Crusade.
Finding #4 – DO pay attention to Father Time
Nobody on the Chiefs is over 34 years old. Besides figuring out that no one is over 34, they also determined that athletes in their 20’s and 30’s somehow perform at a higher level than MAs who are in their 40’s and 50’s. Our research team has recommended getting some younger guys in the mix……or possibly investing in time travel technology.
Finding #5 – DO sign the best athlete in all of sports
Patrick Mahomes is a once-in-a-generation talent. He is only 28 years old, and he is already considered an all-time great. Not only is he talented, but he plays through pain and is the clear leader on that team. The research says we could sure use a guy like Patrick Mahomes. The only drawback is that it will cost us $45 million dollars a year to get him on the Saints bus!
Finding #6 – DO hire Matt Nagy when given the chance
Hiring Matt Nagy is a good move for any organization. Matt Nagy has spent the last two years as one of the offensive coaches for the Kansas City Chiefs. If you didn’t know, Matt Nagy was also head coach of my beloved Chicago Bears during some really frustrating and infuriating years. I consider myself to be a decent amateur writer, but I’m not sure that even I can make a Matt Nagy joke funny…
The Saints Prison Ministry is hard at work implementing some championship caliber changes as we speak. I’m looking forward to writing next year’s article where we study how our teams got better and what we can learn from the Chicago Bears winning the 2025 Super Bowl!
