We’ll see. We hear this with every young QB who comes up the ranks. He has a lot of talent but . . .
Tourche!! This year it was Mahomes. Next year it will be Mayfield. Then Lawrence trying to get Brady's crown.
This. Don’t forget Dak Prescott was also one of the recently Anointed. We’ll see.
Losing Hunt was a major blow to the chiefs. Their running game wasn't much which is why we got away with our front.
Pretty much, it seems like the OP was really trying hard to make himself feel better.
At least he can work on his TD dance at McDonalds!
No, he’s really not.

Somewhere last night on the broadcast was a "fact" that the Chiefs are going to extend Mahomes this offseason, with a $200M contract. Isn't that two years early? Why would they do that? It removes one of their greatest competitive advantages for the next couple of years.
Mahomes is a fantastic QB and he could very well retire with a few rings. That being said, ain't **** passed last night.
Brady owns a French commune? Why would Mahomes want that?
There is no doubt that Mahomes is an electric player. For such a young guy, he showed a lot of poise last night. With a bit more seasoning he should reach the elite levels. Where Mahomes can falter, like so many have before, is when the pressure is truly on his shoulders. I'm talking when your 5 skill players invoke a nation-wide "Who?"; when the bills come due and your team has to cut back on the second level talent. We'll see.
That said, this knock on Brady for his "dink and dunk" style just amazes me. The NFL is not Madden X. The records that matter - wins, comebacks, Super Bowls - belong to Brady for a reason. He doesn't care - take what the D is giving you, and make them regret it. Efficient drives, patience, discipline. Add to that the total package approach by BB and the rest of the staff, and you have a true TEAM that understands, and embraces, the fact that a W is worth a thousand Sports Center moments.
Another example of someone who just doesn't get it.
Executing an offense that gets NE to the Super Bowl 50% of the years since this offense was installed (9 trips in 18 years)...."displeasing to the eye"
"Dink and Dunk" nets 30+ points in most every Pats playoff game.
"Move the chains" game plans have earned Brady 29 playoff wins
Brady's 500 yds in last year's SB must be a misprint
PS: The Mahomes fanboy purposely ignores his QB's dumpoffs to his RB that kept KC in the game. When Brady does it......D & D....but when Mahomes does it....GLOWING TORCH
Again no salty, no issues just being pragmatic about it, you guys as a team looked really good tonight and what I was most impressed with was your coaching, absolutely out coached us for sure. But just watching the game live you could easily see that the torch was passed at QB. Don't worry we will take good care of it. Again good game fellas
I just went on Chiefs planet for a few minutes and that's...quite the interesting site...
Damien Williams scored 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter.
@Rational Chiefs Fan
Tell me what part of post No. 2 in this thread you disagree with.
Win something then get back to us.
Brady's stats may look bad but we handed off inside the 5 yard line like, what, 3 times for a TD? He doesn't get credit for it but he is sure as **** the reason we got there
Mahomes had a truly remarkable season, and earned his MVP.
With that said, I wouldn't be too quick to the trigger on any career labels. Nobody saw 2008 for Brady after 2007. Gannon and Esiason had MVP seasons, but are not in the Hall of Fame. If health, personnel and personal drive are there, then maybe he is the future. Those are really big if's.
In professional sports, especially a contact sport like football, I wouldn't be quick to look past the season and the ability to put a collection of great years together. If you need a cautionary tale on the uber kid who comes out of nowhere to shock the world, see local product Mark "The Bird" Fidrych. 22 year old All Star and Rookie of the Year with a 19-9 record, #2 in Cy Young voting, 2.34 ERA. Next year tore his knee, done in five seasons having never repeated that success.
What makes Brady the greatest is greatness over time. Others will grab the great years, but fortune tellers trying to call the future have repeatedly failed in calling his end, let alone the identity of those who will come to replace him. I like Mahomes, and I wish him well because he does seem to be a decent kid and is fun to watch, but I wouldn't be so quick to anoint him the future of anything just yet.
I think he has physical gifts that Brady has never possessed but I think mentally he is very close to brady and next year will probably be at his level. Again nothing against Brady but this game was a passing of the torch QB wise, the bigger deal here was how well you were coached, that is what won the game, not the QB. Hell Alex Smith could of played that game and won against us the way you were coached. Sort of reminded me of the year Peyton won the SB when he was a shell of what he was. Brady isn't the reason you guys with this year, the Hoodie is the reason. Again good game.
