Patrick Mahomes Thanks Rival Coach for Major NFL Tip
Patrick Mahomes often makes playing quarterback look easy, but what fans don't see is all the preparation behind the scenes that enables him to carve up opposing defenses on game day.
On Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce's "New Heights" podcast, Mahomes recently revealed a valuable lesson that he learned early on in his career about getting ready for games.
Mahomes recalled playing the New England Patriots for the first time in 2018 and being completely bewildered by New England's defensive scheme, which he had never seen before. Kansas City lost, and Mahomes vowed that he would never again go into a game without doing his homework first.
"Thanks, Bill Belichick," Mahomes said sarcastically.
All of Mahomes' hard work since then has certainly paid off, as his two MVP awards and two Super Bowl rings can attest. He's developed into arguably the best quarterback in the NFL right now and could end up as the best ever when it's all said and done.
So the next time your team loses to Mahomes, you can thank Belichick.
