Super Bowl 2021 Chiefs QB is the youngest to reach two Super Bowls
EOn February 5, 2017, the conversation of the greatest player in NFL history seemed to be forever settled. That night in Houston Tom Brady and the Patriots rallied from a 28-3 deficit to the Falcons to win their fifth Super Bowl ring. A figure that no other QB in history had reached before, breaking the tie with the other contender, Joe Montana.
The thing did not end there, since Brady made it to the next two Super Bowls, winning sixth against the Rams, burying any arguments against. But just this season of 2018 the one that, three seasons later, was released as a starter. has arguments to challenge the throne of TB12, Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes has technically been in the NFL for four seasons. Kansas City rose to pick him with the 10th pick in the 2017 DraftBut in his first season he was a backup for Alex Smith, only playing in week 17. The talent was undeniable and he was the starter the following year, flying to the top immediately.
In the 2018 to 2020 seasons, Mahomes is 37-8 in the regular season, with 13,868 yards, 114 touchdown passes, a 109.8 rating (would be the best of all time), with three division titles, an MVP and three appearances in the American Conference final, besides that in two Sundays he will appear in his second Super Bowl; the first one he won and was the MVP of the match. No quarterback in history has reached two finishes so quickly. Neither Tom Brady, who did it after turning 26, the same as Russell Wilson.
Brady lags far behind Mahomes’ numbers and accomplishments in his first three years as a starter. From 2001 to 2003, Brady appeared in two postseason and yes, he won the championship in both, although he was 26 years and 182 days to second against Carolina (Mahomes will be 25-143 on February 7). TB12 was 34-12 with 10,227 yards, 69 touchdowns and an 86 rating.
Diametrically opposite differences, which are partly explained by the differences in rules largely caused by the PatsFirst because they were responsible for limiting contact with receivers and then because of Brady’s knee injury that gave the quarterbacks more protection.
It’s very early in Mahomes’ career, but he’s aiming for the top. Thinking of reaching 10 Super Bowls is something very crazy, even with such talent, because the Chiefs are going to lose players once it takes effect. the greatest contract of all time. Of course, if he wins the Super Bowl over Brady, he can start to raise the case.
But the opposite can also occur. Let Tampa Bay win and Brady would then be 2-0 against Mahomes in the Playoffs. He won the AFC final in the Chiefs QB MVP season at Arrowhead. Now he would win the ring with another team he has just arrived at. It would be the equivalent of if Jordan had played a final against LeBron in the 2000s and had beaten him. The discussion was over forever. The throne of the best in history will be at stake in Tampa on two Sundays. Little thing.
