Could Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs surpass the New England Patriots in Super Bowl wins?

The New England Patriots currently stand at the pinnacle of the Super Bowl-winning hierarchy, for now.

The grim reality for Patriots fans, however, is this, if the brilliant young multi-faceted Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, stays healthy over his NFL career, he will easily break most of the Patriots and Tom Brady‘s records.

More from Chowder and Champions

He will send the Chiefs back to the top echelon of NFL franchises and will shatter the monumental records set by Brady and the Patriots.

And he may do that so by a multiple of victories and maybe even before he’s 30 years old, or shortly thereafter. He’s that good.

As a Patriots fan, for longer than I’d like to admit, the thought of our dynastic New England megalodons being overshadowed by a team from the heartland, is abhorrent, at best. But, facts are facts, and they say, it is what it is.

This young man. Mr. Mahomes is special. Beyond special. He’s going to shred many NFL records.

Before he hangs up his cleats and if he by some measure of good injury fortune has anywhere near the playing longevity of one Brady, he will shatter Brady’s records and set records that will never be overcome.

Records are made to be broken and the popular opinion was that Brady’s records would never be broken. It took Brady 19 years to set the records he did with six Super Bowl rings on his fingers.

But he did win the six rings. Mahomes now has one, and could very well have had his first two by now.

The one that got away

Absent a Dee Ford offside penalty that negated a game-winning interception in the AFC Championship game against New England after the 2018 season, they’d have had one then. Remember that play?

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs would have likely beaten the Rams in that Super Bowl and last season would have been his second Super Bowl victory.

And keep in mind New England Patriots fans, that Mahomes is still only 25 years old. He was only the 10th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Nine teams should be kicking themselves, indeed.

Is he even yet in his prime? Get this, this great young player, and a seemingly wonderful young man as well, might actually not be in his prime yet. A horrifying thought indeed for the Patriots and everyone else in the NFL.

He’s only going to get better as he gains more experience and like Brady did masters the full craft of playing the most difficult position maybe in professional sports, period. As if he hasn’t mastered it all right now. He’s just phenomenal.

Mahomes completes about 2/3’s of his passes. He can run, and he’s just a natural winner. He’s the complete package for a quarterback and the Chiefs have been astute enough to surround him with weapons to help him excel.

Patrick Mahomes has what Tom Brady never had

The New England Patriots almost never surrounded their all-time quarterback with enough weapons, for whatever unfathomable reasons they had.

Whatever those reasons were, they were bogus. Inexplicable. Incomprehensible. Inconceivable. Call it whatever adjective you want as long as it means, foolish.

Brady deserved better and he took his talents to Tampa Bay. We’ll see what he can ultimately do there. So far, so good.

But in Mahomes case, there is no such personnel ineptitude visible to-date in Kansas City. They know exactly what they have and they will find ways to provide him with the talent around him to excel.

Kansas City will continue to be astute enough to provide Mahomes with talents like Travis Kelce‘s and Tyreek Hill, talents that will allow the new All-World quarterback, to maybe even transcend the “best ever”.

And, they have an accomplished winning coach and personality in Andy Reid, who will nurture the young player and support him at every step. Something evidently Brady, unfortunately, didn’t have from his coach during his long tenure in New England.

We New England Patriots fans had our run, a long and fruitful one, just not so fruitful as it could have or should have been. Yet, it is what it is.

Now, however, for fans of the Flying Elvis, it’s Mahomes time and the Kansas City Chief’s fans time. So, get used to it, it could be their moment for 15-20 more years to boot.

Next. What lies ahead for Bill Belichick’s squad. dark

For selfish reasons, it’s not going to be fun to watch, but we all should observe and somehow enjoy it. We are seeing one of the greatest players in sports history evolving in Kansas City. His name is Patrick Mahomes.
