While Tom Brady is no question the GOAT in the NFL right now, even he knows that Patrick Mahomes can one day steal that title from him.
Once again, Tom Brady sent a massive statement this past season to his biggest of haters. While some might try and doubt him, Brady ignored those folks and somehow powered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title.
In that win over the Kansas City Chiefs, basically everyone out there bowed down to Brady as the GOAT, especially with him taking down Patrick Mahomes in the process. Well, if you ask Brady, even he knows that Mahomes has one heck of a future and the Kansas City signal-caller very well could pass him as the league’s best one day.
Tom Brady won’t rule out Patrick Mahomes surpassing him as the NFL’s GOAT in the future
While on the All Things Covered podcast hosted by Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden, Brady’s 2020 teammate LeSean McCoy, who spent the previous year suiting up alongside Mahomes in Kansas City, said that Brady is fully aware of just how great Mahomes can be in this league.
McCoy went on to say that Brady firmly believes Mahomes has what it takes to go down in history as the best signal-caller to ever play the game. It’s not surprising to see that thought from McCoy. While Mahomes and the Chiefs lost the Super Bowl in early February, Mahomes had solidified himself as one of the best players across the NFL in recent years.
After leading the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win over the 49ers in February of 2020, Mahomes rightfully took home MVP honors. He was hoping to capture his second Super Bowl ring this winter, but Brady decided to grab his seventh instead.
Now, Mahomes will have one heck of a time trying to catch up with Brady in the Super Bowl department, but even the veteran quarterback understands that anything can happen.
