Patrick Mahomes has been becoming the face of the NFL over the course of the last few seasons, but there’s been a glaring problem festering around him far too long.
His family is really annoying. That’s not just my opinion, either. Most NFL fans outside of Kansas City and a segment within Kansas City find the people associated with Mahomes to be…abrasive, to put it nicely.
I don’t know these people personally, but nobody likes them. It’s not just his TikTok famous brother either. It seems like as many articles are written postgame about fiancee Brittany Matthews, younger brother Jackson, and mother Randi as are written weekly about the former Super Bowl MVP.
There was the now-infamous water bottle toss after the Chiefs’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens. If you hadn’t seen that one, here’s a short clip, along with the response from Patrick Mahomes in a press conference where he should be focused on the team instead of needing to defend his family members.
I do agree with Mahomes that Brittany and Jackson receive a lot of hate, but it’s absolutely brought on by past actions. There might have been some things said to Jackson off-video to make him throw water, but what was he saying the entire game? Was he TikToking his way around the suite and flaunting the Chiefs’ success in the faces of the Ravens below? Yes, he was.
