Listen to Rob Parker and Chris Broussard debate how many more Super Bowls Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes will win over the course of his career, just a week after the 24-year-old signed the most lucrative contract in sports history.
Mahomes is just three years into a career that already has an MVP, Super Bowl, and Super Bowl MVP to its name, including a historically elite 2018 season in which he led the NFL with 50 touchdown passes compared to just 12 interceptions as a first-year starter.
However, even though Mahomes is unanimously considered the best quarterback in the NFL, and potentially the most talented quarterback of all time, the most talented quarterbacks in each generation aren’t necessarily always the most successful of their eras.
Dan Marino is considered by many to be the greatest pure passer in league history, yet he never won a Super Bowl, and reached only one, in his second season as a 23-year-old, no less.
First ballot Hall of Fame quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Russell Wilson have won only one Super Bowl, and even an all-time talent like Peyton Manning, who also could make a case as the greatest talent in league history, only one won during his prime, before winning his second during his final NFL season where he was one of the worst players in the league.
Check out the audio above as Parker details why winning the Super Bowl, especially the second Super Bowl, is no guarantee, even with phenoms like Mahomes.
