With a loss to the iconic QB in Super Bowl LV, Patrick Mahomes lost the chance to dislodge Tom Brady as the GOAT.
Although Brady isn’t ready to dismiss Mahomes’ chances of unseating him yet. The undisputed GOAT of the NFL believes Mahomes has a chance to dethrone him, as does an NFL analyst.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes represent the two millennia of quarterbacks. They have one common thread: they both are fantastic at their careers and are victors. It’s a marvel in itself that Tom Brady is still having fun at a world-class level in the same period as Patrick Mahomes and isn’t old enough to retire.
According to ex-RB LeSean McCoy, Brady still believes Mahomes can catch him in Super Bowl performances and blow all of his records out of the water.
Over the last two years, he’s been a colleague of both Brady and Mahomes. He was part of two Super Bowl victories in a row with them.
McCoy attends CBS Sports’ “All Things Covered” podcast with Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden. He discusses how much Tom Brady considers Patrick Mahomes, sharing an overlap between the two quarterbacks that makes them brilliant each year.
He mentions, “I think Tom Brady, when he looks at other quarterbacks, from young and old, I think he feels Pat is probably the only one that gets it and will have a shot.”
Another of the resemblances, according to McCoy, is how they both realize the meaning of possessing an aristocratic crew around them instead of desiring to be the team’s only celebrity and not picking up too much cap space.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will take Week 4 by storm
NFL fans are looking forward to the upcoming season, which will pit Tom Brady against Patrick Mahomes in another entertaining season.
For the very first time since their Super Bowl war, Brady and Mahomes will square off in Week 4 of the new season. The NFL and its fans will sit back and enjoy these two teams going head-to-head.

Week 4 can’t get here fast enough. Tom Brady is undeniably one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. On the other hand, Mahomes is intimidating in his position as the best in the league. During the regular season, the two stars have met four times, with the showdowns being equally balanced.
It is the best chance for both of them to raise their tally while the race continues.
