The “America’s Crew” moniker had all the time belonged to the Dallas Cowboys — however Corridor of Fame offensive lineman Willie Roaf mentioned Wednesday it needs to be Kansas Metropolis Chiefs taking the nickname.
Roaf defined to FanSided that the Chiefs are taking part in higher than they’ve ever performed earlier than, and getting again to the Tremendous Bowl and showing of their third AFC Championship is greater than sufficient motive to name Kansas Metropolis “America’s Crew.”

“This can be a stage that Kansas Metropolis has by no means been at,” Roaf mentioned. “Kansas Metropolis is now America’s workforce. Kansas Metropolis went from being a small-market workforce to being America’s workforce proper now with Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek [Hill], [Travis] Kelce and all these guys. I’m excited for them.
“I’m excited they’ve one other alternative to exit and play [in the Super Bowl]. They’re the younger weapons. I feel the stress is extra on [Tom] Brady as a result of Brady needs to win one other one and he made it in his first 12 months in Tampa.”

The moniker was reinvigorated once more within the 1990s when the Cowboys received three Tremendous Bowls in 4 years. However the workforce has not appeared in a Tremendous Bowl since 1995 nor have they made it so far as the NFC Championship.
