Why Patrick Mahomes is an Overrated Gimmick Propped Up By Andy Reid

Jason Whitlock: “Why do you continue to troll the Kansas City Chiefs?? Patrick Mahomes has two Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVPs, and you’re acting like he’s proven nothing!”

Coach Jason Brown: “’Trolling’ sounds like it’s a ‘falsehood’, or a ‘lie’, or it’s a non-truth, and it’s making up things to get clickbait; that’s not me. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t put out crap just to get clicks, I don’t really care. What I say is the TRUTH, and the Kansas City fan base can’t handle it so you can't call me me a ‘troll’. Where has this great Chiefs fan base been the last 15 years? Where were they when Mahomes played at Texas Tech? I said the same stuff last year and didn’t hear anything from them. I am a ‘truth teller’, and the true Chiefs fan base actually agrees with me.”

Whitlock: “You’ve said Patrick Mahomes is a ‘gimmick’, and not an all-time great quarterback. That is going to piss off Chiefs fans when the guy is coming off the MVP and the MVP of the Super Bowl. What more does he have to do??”

Coach Brown: “I can’t make an opinion on this guy being overrated? I’ve never attacked Mahomes personally, this is an opinion-based profession.”


Coach Brown: “Because we’re talking about a guy who has played four seasons and you’re already putting him at no. 2 on the all-time list. Like, miss me with this bull crap, man. He ain’t that good yet, let’s watch him in five years. Let’s be clear, Alex Smith under Andy Reid had nowhere near this roster. Alex Smith went 50-26 as a starter, let’s not act like Patrick Mahomes just re-invented the wheel here. Alex Smith had three seasons in a row with a completion percentage over 66%, and over a 95 rating. Mahomes has had a 66, 65, 66, 66, and 67 this year, the same as Alex Smith, but Mahomes’ rating is 10 points higher than Alex Smith. Do you know why? Because Andy Reid has to create an offense that is conducive for Pat Mahomes to have success in. Andy Reid has the greatest roster he’s ever had in his coaching career the last four years, arguably, and he has what? He’s lost a Super Bowl, he’s gotten beat by Brady twice, and we’re sitting here condoning Mahomes as the greatest thing since sliced bread. Let’s pump our brakes. I never said he was garbage. I know he’s an athletic freak, but let’s pump our brakes. We’re already putting him over Montana, a guy that is 4-0 in the Super Bowl, and threw 14 touchdowns and 0 interceptions? C’mon, man! You say ‘we’ve never seen it before’, I’ve seen a guy named John Elway do it, I’ve seen Brett Favre do it, I’ve seen Aaron Rodgers do it. What do you mean ‘we haven’t seen this before'? You’re telling me because he throws a left-handed grenade pass going to his right that he's re-invented the wheel? You guys must have not seen Michael Vick throw the ball from the pocket before. I’m confused why Andy Reid didn’t have to invent a gimmick offense for Michael Vick, the greatest athlete that ever played quarterback. Why didn’t he create a gimmicky offense for him? Why didn’t he create one for Donovan McNabb? It’s the greatest football coach of our generation making things happen for what he’s got to work with. Great coaches find their personnel and they adapt to it. Andy Reid has had to create a gimmick for him [Mahomes]. I’ve broken down the film entirely. He’s not doing this offense with anyone else. Without this offense Patrick Mahomes isn’t who he is. Why is that hard to understand? He doesn’t sit in the pocket and throw dig routes, corner routes, and post routes on time. This isn’t Patrick Mahomes. He has to shovel pass the ball, make ad-lib plays, and move the pocket to make sure he’s comfortable. Mike Vick stood in the pocket and made better throws on time. Mahomes runs a gimmicky system that is created for him because of his skill set, so let's pump our brakes when we talk about the 'GOAT.' I'm getting bombarded on my phone by real fans who agree with me. Why do my former players, coaches, and friends know and agree with everything I say? Because it's a 'professional' opinion, it's not some guy who runs a podcast in Kansas City who thinks he knows football. I had THAT guy on my podcast yesterday, he couldn't tell me the difference between 'quarters', and 'cover 2', yet he knows more than me? I blasted his butt and he got humble real quick. They don't know what they're talking about." (Full Segment Above)

Watch Coach Jason Brown, made famous from his appearances as a JUCO college football coach on Netflix’s popular show ‘Last Chance U’, get into a fierce debate with Jason Whitlock on Patrick Mahomes' seemingly immaculate standing in NFL history after only five years in the league as a starter, as Brown says Chiefs fan boys need to pump the brakes on anointing 'gimmick' Mahomes as the future GOAT.

Check out the animated segment above as Whitlock has to eventually kick Brown off the show entirely, after repeatedly saying that Mahomes is overrated and a product of Andy Reid's quarterback-friendly system that even made a mediocre quarterback like Alex Smith look elite.
