Jason Whitlock: “I wanted to say this about Patrick Mahomes – what we’re finding out. Talented, Hall of Fame quarterback, going to go down in history as one of the top 10 quarterbacks, maybe top 5 of all time... But he does not have Tom Brady’s drive. Winning isn’t as important to him as it was for Tom Brady. Some of that has to do with Mahomes was a first-round pick, the Chiefs went up to get him I think in the top 10 of the draft, Tom Brady – chip on his shoulder, sixth-round pick, always had that chip on his shoulder. The Chiefs and Mahomes are a bit satisfied. Pat Mahomes is in any commercial he wants to be in, he’s got two MVPs, two Super Bowls – he doesn’t have a peer. Take Brady, he was always competing with Peyton Manning. Who is Patrick Mahomes competing with? Nobody. Patrick Mahomes isn’t Tom Brady, he’s not Tiger Woods, he’s not Michael Jordan. He’s just a super-talented guy. When I look at how their offense is backed up and he’s having a mediocre season, he’s a bit satisfied right now, his tight end is a bit distracted right now, he doesn’t have Tyreek Hill, and so he’s got some excuses and going through the motions.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Jason Whitlock of Blaze TV’s Fearless explain why he thinks Patrick Mahomes lacks the drive to replicate an immaculate NFL legacy similar to Tom Brady’s, saying Mahomes looks fully ‘satisfied’ at the age of 28 with two MVP's and two Super Bowl rings.
Mahomes is in the midst of the worst statistical season of his entire career, experiencing career worsts in passer rating, yards per game, yards per attempt, and touchdown-to-interception ratio. Mahomes' Chiefs are currently 8-4 and atop the AFC West standings, but the Chiefs have lost three of their last five games and rank an unusually low 11th in scoring.
Check out the segment above as Whitlock details the disinterest and malaise in Kansas City that has suddenly made the Chiefs into a very ordinary and beatable opponent.
