So, if Brady walked by fans after a loss, he'd be "bush league"?
What do hypotheticals have to do with this?? You tried to minimize or demonize what Mahomes did.. what he did was no big deal. It was a nice gesture, take it for what it is worth.. move on to the Superbowl.. 3rd in 3 years that is what is important.

I kind of agree with the OP, except that I don't think it's totally indicative of his future.. he's full of youthful exuberance, he's not a trained assassin like our QB.

A little harsh take but I see where he's coming from

And there is your answer as to why Mahomes will never be Brady, because even TB12 at Mahomes age would have been entirely way too disappointed and pissed off to even look at the fans after just losing the season-ender at home, in a game he was favored to win.

Mahomes is a great player, but he's basically a kid and he does not understand quite yet what it takes to be great. Perhaps he will learn, but after seeing him high-five a few Chiefs fans on his way down to the tunnel after last night's game, I felt bad for Chiefs fans. Prepare for many more letdowns from this guy. JMHO..
Contrarily, we need more class and fan appreciation like this. Lay off the harsh criticism. It's unwarranted.

Gronk partied shirtless after the 2011 loss to the Giants. No killer instinct, he'll never win a ring!
Gronk's not a signal-caller or viewed as the leader of the team. His dance video also wasn't made literally seconds after a heart-breaking, season ending loss at home. Granted it was later that night, but what Gronk does away from the football field in his own personal time I can't really relate to what someone does ON THE FIELD right after a game.

As the OP said, the loss was against the Giants. Gronk should’ve just gone the Aaron Rodgers route and just “go home and have a scotch”. Lol.

Thank you and I think Mahomes played an incredible game, had an incredible season. We'll see what happens. I still think he's a "flavor of the month" QB right now. Let's see how the legs hold up over the course of several seasons before we put him in the HOF. Someone called him a "champion" earlier. He hasn't won anything yet.

Especially from patriots fans who should know better considering the completely undeserved hate Tom Brady gets. In essence it’s the same reason - jealousy!
Seriously... Brady is arguably the NFL's most amazing story ever, and an incredible ambassador and example for this league and the youth of this nation.. but outside of NE he is portrayed as the anti-christ. People suck.

Its the Brady/Patriots fatigue...its nothing personal but people that aren't Pats fans just want to see other teams win...people probably felt the same about MJs Bulls.

Oh I totally understand why people are sick of the Pats and Brady... but the constant vilification, attempts to discredit and wishes for injury and death are and always will be illogical to me. I think the rise of the internet and social media have played a big part as well, the constant media attention combined with the ability to voice one's opinions to millions of people has created a perfect storm of Pats and Brady hatred.

Simply can't put Mahomes and Brady in the same comparison when it comes to hate. When Mahomes wins something, get back to me. Most fans outside of NE who hate Brady hate him because he's so hard to beat. And I don't even hate Mahomes, which further underscores the silliness of the "hate" comparisons with he and Brady. It's not even close.

Off-topic and not even in the same galaxy. We know Brady hate exists. We know why it exists. Mahomes hasn't even been around long enough for anyone to truly "hate" him, let alone in the same vain as the Brady haters hate Brady.

My response was perfectly on-topic to Play87's post. The rest of your post, uhhh no duh.

I see nothing to not like about Mahomes. Great talent, great attitude, great teammate, a blast to watch.

When Brady finally retires, Mahomes and Wilson will be the best two in the league, likely - but I'll wait a bit on Mahomes. He had an amazing amount of talent around him this year, probably the best team he'll ever have.

Still, there's no doubting his talent or his cool. Kid's a winner. That last game-tying drive had to have perfect passes and he did it.
