Tom Brady is gone. Patrick Mahomes is going nowhere, anytime soon.
Mahomes has work to do. He needs to win five more Super Bowls to catch Brady as the best of all time.
“Seven’s a lot, but I’ll strive to get as close as I can,” Mahomes told Peter King for his latest Football Morning in America column. “To win seven Super Bowls and be in 10 Super Bowls, it’s crazy to even think about, even for me today. The other stats kinda come with it. I knew at Texas Tech, I put up a lot of stats but didn’t win games. When I got to the NFL, I knew I wanted to be a winner [first]. Try to win Super Bowls and give my team the best that I can.”
