Patrick Mahomes Wants to Play into His 40’s
Patrick Mahomes is the face of the NFL. That is an undeniable fact. And it sounds like he is trying to pull a Tom Brady and leave his imprint on the league. While speaking at the annual Super Bowl Media Night he name dropped TB12 by name saying he wants to try an play into his 40’s. Isn’t that great… Patrick Mahomes wants to play into his 40’s. It wasn’t enough that the entire AFC had to deal with Tom Brady for 20 years. Now Patrick Mahomes is trying to hang around and leave basically a 40-year window where all of the success is owned by the Patriots and Chiefs. This is the 6th season Patrick Mahomes has been a starting quarterback. He is already making his 4th Super Bowl appearance, and the only quarterbacks to eliminate Patrick Mahomes are Tom Brady and Joe Burrow.

Is this sour grapes from me? Absolutely! Should Chiefs fans take this as a compliment? Absolutely! This is jealousy coming out right now. I (a Dolphins fan) want what you currently have and what the Patriots fans had while Brady was their guy. Bills fans think they have it with Josh Allen. But we all know that franchise is totally incapable of sustained success in the playoffs. Lamar Jackson and Baltimore? If not this year, then when? We’ve seen Joe Burrow do it, but that is the entire list of active QBs who have beat Mahomes in the playoffs. And now it sounds like the the 28-year-old is thinking about hanging around for another 3 Olympiads?
Good for the NFL for have the face of their league for the next decade, but the other 31 fan bases are in for a long ride as long as he is in Kansas City.
