Tom Brady is one of the greatest players in NFL history and his records prove it. On the other hand, Patrick Mahomes is poised to potentially surpass the legend and make a name for himself. However, in a recent interview, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback gave a hilarious answer when asked about chasing Brady's milestones.
With Tom Brady quiting football, this time 'for good', fans are wondering who will take his place. There are tons of great quarterbacks nowadays, but it seems like Patrick Mahomes is the one winning that race.
The Chiefs quarterback is going to fight this weekend for his second Super Bowl title and, if he gets it, he'll be closer to the seven Vince Lombardi trophies that Brady won, but it is not something that keeps Mahomes up at night.
Patrick Mahomes gives a hilarious answer on chasing Tom Brady's records
A new era has started. Tom Brady's retirement gives the young quarterbacks the perfect opportunity to chase his records and surpass him as the greatest to ever play in the NFL, but Patrick Mahomes knows there's a long distance to travel to do so.
The 27-year-old was questioned about the comparisons between him and Brady. The quarterback gave a hilarious answer to it and payed his respect to the legend.
“I’m trying to catch Tom, but Tom’s a long ways away” Mahomes said, via Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer. “You can ask me when I’m like 38 years old.”
When Brady was 27, the same age as Mahomes today, he won his third Super Bowl title with the Patriots. If Mahomes wants to get closer to him, he must get the victory on Sunday against the Eagles and try to keep up the pace in the upcoming years to tie those seven rings Tom has.
