After winning Super Bowl LVII, is Patrick Mahomes the GOAT QB?
With two MVPs and two Super Bowl wins, 27-year-old Patrick Mahomes is already one of the best ever.
GLENDALE, Arizona — Sunday’s fight in Arizona was a masterclass from two of the best ever: head coach Andy Reid and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
While some will remember Super Bowl LVII for a crucial penalty kick in the last two minutes that allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to burn the clock and kick a game-winning field goal with just eight seconds remaining, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs all deserve credit in the world.
And while that win is vital to Reid’s legacy — who won his second Super Bowl Trophy against his former team — one of the big topics of conversation after the game is what it means for Mahomes.
The 27-year-old is already bringing himself into conversation alongside the greatest quarterbacks ever played, and Locked on Chiefs host Chris Clark believes his talent speaks for itself.
“Mahomes is probably one of the most talented quarterbacks to ever play this game,” Clark told Peter Bukowski on the Locked On Sports Today podcast. “He’s more talented than Tom Brady. He has the opportunity to chase Tom Brady’s records. If he has seasons like this year, it’s going to be a lot quicker than people think.”

Mahomes now has two MVPs and two Super Bowl trophies to his name, and his performance on Sunday (21 of 27 passes completed, 183 yards and three touchdowns) proves he can step up and secure a win when his team needs it on most.
Being called a GOAT quarterback means more than sheer talent, and at 27, it’s fair to say Mahomes has more work to do to actually earn the title. However, his current career puts him on the right track – and Clark doesn’t think it’s premature to have those conversations after his latest accomplishment.
“He looks like he wants to play for another ten to fifteen years,” Clark continued. “I think that’s a conversation to start now that he’s won two Super Bowls in four years.”
