If there is one thing Kansas City fans should know after the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, it’s that Patrick Mahomes isn’t going to do a post-game press conference. Mahomes has left the stadium and is not going to be in the building when the game is broadcast, because he has a family emergency. However, his play has certainly boosted the confidence of his teammates, and they know that they can count on him to lead the team to victory.
Despite the fact that Mahomes is a rookie, he has already earned the respect of many other NFL stars. Tom Brady has spoken of his admiration for Patrick Mahomes in the past. After the Patriots’ loss in the AFC championship, the two quarterbacks met on the sidelines and gave each other advice. Brady told Mahomes that following his advice would mean he was doing something right.
Patrick Mahomes also mentioned the PFF grading system. The system was widely criticized by Chiefs fans and others. Mahomes’ mention of the PFF system showed that he is a player obsessed with greatness. And he’s not afraid to use those mentions to fuel his performance.
However, he made a mistake. In the first half, he opted to let some of his passes go down the field. Then in the second half, he didn’t throw a single downfield pass. Instead, he tried to find Tyreek Hill, but his attempt to beat Bengals cornerback Eli Apple was met by a strong tackle from Apple.
Mahomes was also hugging Josh Allen after the game, who finished 27-for-37 and had 329 yards. Josh Allen had 68 rushing yards, while Patrick Mahomes rushed for 378 yards. Both quarterbacks said they were proud of each other’s performances.
The Buccaneers and Chiefs game was a battle of generations. Tom Brady was a favorite, but Mahomes was able to out-duel him for the win. But Brady, who had not lost with a 30-point game in his career, told the youngster to keep up the good work.
Local love isn’t always a good thing. Fans love to support their local players, but it doesn’t mean the player is any good. Kansas City Thunder players are often very good during the regular season, but in crunch time, they were ineffective and inconsistent. As a result, the fans aren’t as passionate about Mahomes.
