Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL

Aug 24, 2022

There was once a time that every media outlet attempted to rationalize why they believed Tom Brady wasn’t going to have the same success as the season before. I’d like to congratulate Kansas City Chiefs fans because Patrick Mahomes is now getting the same treatment. 

I don’t understand why the media is so desperate to tear down a great player. It wasn’t long ago that Patrick Mahomes was the wonder boy of the NFL. Now that Tyreek Hill has been traded to the Miami Dolphins, some are wondering if Mahomes will have the same success. I can’t believe I have to say this, but Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL.

Let me stop all the Tom Brady defenders. Tom Brady is a great quarterback, he’s going down as the greatest of all time. But, how can you rationally look at Patrick Mahomes and determine he’s not the best quarterback in the NFL. 

I’m also ready for the Buffalo Bills fans who are going to scream about Josh Allen. Josh Allen is a great quarterback. Allen has a unique skill set that we haven’t seen since Michael Vick. Some would argue that Allen is a better version than Vick. I probably wouldn’t disagree. But winning matters. Performing in the big moments matters. Going to the Super Bowl matters. So, when you add up all of the intangibles and success, Patrick Mahomes comes out on top. 

Maybe next year we’re having a very legitimate Mahomes vs Allen argument. Maybe Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will take a step forward. But we don’t live in the world of what if’s. We live in a world of what we see now, and right now no quarterback in the National Football League surpasses Patrick Mahomes. 

I won’t stand for the media tearing Patrick Mahomes the same way they tore down Tom Brady. On today’s episode of Ray’s Sports Rant I deep dive on Stephen A. Smith saying that the Chiefs will take a step backwards because of the Tyreek Hill trade. Patrick Mahomes is too good to deal with this type of disrespect.
