Winning a Super Bowl championship is widely considered the pinnacle accomplishment for any NFL player. But even though Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco won a Super Bowl ring during his first season in the league, he still isn’t fully satisfied.
During an interview with ESPN this week, Isiah Pacheco revealed that while he is “satisfied” with the Super Bowl victory itself, he isn’t necessarily satisfied with his performance throughout the season.
“Being able to extend the things I’m able to do, that comes with work in the offseason,’’ Pacheco said according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com. “For me, I still feel like there’s more to improve . . . I’m satisfied with the [Super Bowl] win on my first [appearance], but I’m unsatisfied because I know that there’s more that could’ve been done out there.”
Pacheco finished the 2022 season with 830 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season. During the postseason run, he added 197 yards and a touchdown to that total. Those are pretty impressive numbers for a rookie running back that wasn’t even considered the starter at the beginning of the season. If he can improve upon that this year, the Chiefs might find themselves in the Super Bowl once again.
