Kansas City doesn’t wear captaincy patches during the regular season, but they add them for the postseason. They also wear the Lamar Hunt perma-memorial patch on the other side of the chest. That has left KC’s captains with some very crowded jerseys when the team has made it to the Super Bowl (as seen above on quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl LIV).
But things could be even worse this year, because the team has been wearing a memorial patch this season for Lamar Hunt’s wife, Norma Hunt. So things have already been a bit jam-packed during the team’s two playoff games, as seen yesterday on tight end Travis Kelce:
Now imagine adding a Super Bowl patch to that mix. Would they move the “NKH” patch over the other side, above the “A” patch, to make room for the Supe patch? If so, would they move the “NKH” patch just for the captains, or for all the players?
Of course, the Ravens could render all these questions moot by defeating KC this Sunday. But if they fail to do that, some jerseys could get mighty crowded on Super Bowl Sunday.
Still, it could be worse. Imagine if one of the KC captains was also a past Walter Payton Man of the Year Award Winner!
