Bieniemy knows what it takes to win a championship

Sunday will mark the third year in a row in which the Chiefs will be playing in the AFC Championship. Winners of last season’s Super Bowl, Kansas City has a very good chance to be the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since 2004.

In each of these three years, Eric Bieniemy has been the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs. The knowledge he’s gained during the last three seasons is very valuable and it’s something he can offer to another team in the NFL as either their offensive coordinator or head coach.

There are members of the current Vikings coaching staff that have championship experience (including Mike Zimmer), but this is something no team can ever have enough of.

There are certain decisions and strategies that separate the contenders from the pretenders in the league. If he takes over as Minnesota’s offensive coordinator for next season, Bieniemy can help point the team in the right direction to get on the path to winning the franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl.
