He’s the most dynamic offensive player in the league by a landslide and is putting together a Hall of Famer kind of résumé despite not being around for that long.
In fact, Mahomes is one of the few players who could legitimately make a case for being the GOAT once he retires.
Moreover, Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe is positive that Mahomes is the best quarterback in the league, and it’s not even close.
Per the legendary tight end, it’s Patrick’s ability to come back and win that separates him from the rest of the pack:
“I think it’s Patrick Mahomes, and I don’t think it’s close,” Sharpe said on Undisputed. “You look at what he’s done in the playoffs. You see he was down 24 to the Houston Texans, we saw he was down by 10 to the Tennessee Titans, and come back. What he did to Buffalo last year, and he did it in such a fashion that NFL changed the rule to require everybody gets the ball in overtime. That’s all Patrick Mahomes. 13 seconds, go get them in field goal range, and get the ball in overtime, and take the ball down the field. And this is why Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback: Patrick Mahomes is 13-10 when trailing by at least 10 points. That’s a .556 winning percentage. That’s the best all-time, and no one’s close. Joe Burrow, in the same scenario, is 5-13; that’s a .278. The GOAT, Tom Brady, is 42-68; that’s a .382 winning percentage. Patrick Mahomes is the only quarterback who’s .500 or better when trailing by 10 points, and he did it in the Super Bowl mid-way through the fourth quarter. Can it get any better than that?”

Talent-wise, Mahomes might be the greatest of all time already.
Of course, he still needs to play at that level for years to come, but there’s no denying that his career has gotten off to one of the most impressive starts ever.NEXT: The Chiefs Quietly Added More Talent For 2023
