Patrick Mahomes drops bombshell. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

LOS ANGELES — During his inaugural season as a starter, Kansas City Chiefs phenom Patrick Mahomes set a plethora of NFL records when he because the youngest quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. The ensuing campaign he became the youngest signal-caller to win a Super Bowl and league MVP honors. But, during a recent chinwag on LeBron James’ HBO show “The Shop,” Mahomes raised eyebrows when he admitted he just learned to comprehend NFL defenses.

On top of that, he’s only played football for 6 years.

“I really didn’t understand how to read defenses until halfway through like, last year,” said the 24-year-old wunderkind, referring to 2018. “I understood coverages, but how to be able to pick up little tendencies defenses do, stuff that [Tom] Brady and them have done, stuff that they know it and they just do it. I was just playing. And then this year, I could actually recognize more and more stuff. And I think the more experience and the more I learn, then I’ll be able to go out there and call plays and do that different stuff because I’ve seen it. I still think there’s a long way for me to go… and that’s where mentally, I think I can still get better.”

“Physically, I feel like I’ve done a lot of stuff,” Mahomes continued.

“I always work on the fundamentals. But mentally, I can still take my game to a whole ’nother level.”

Damn! Mahomes is already the NFL’s best QB and he still has room to grow.

That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the league.

Watch the clip.

Share your thoughts.


  1. The guy has played 3 seasons – won a superbowl and was one offsides penalty away from being in another. I look forward to seeing Mahomes play for many years – I think it will be exciting to watch him.

  2. Thats a bunch of bullshit, he receives more favoritism than any other quarterback in the league from officials. In the Super Bowl, his offensive line was constantly holding the entire duration of the game. So spare us the sensationalist crap

  3. RIP to the rest of the league

  4. The rest of the NFL look out.

  5. Throws for 5,000 yards in one season…….I’m just learning defenses. The entire AFC West just sharted their pants.

  6. Well that should terrify the rest of the NFL.

  7. I’m still waiting for Trubisky to be able to read a defense… or hit a wide open WR.

  8. The rest of the League will be real happy to hear that once he ‘fully’ understands Defenses that he could actually be better.

  9. This man is a mutant. An Apex Predator that has been unleashed on the rest of the league. He’s not even at FULL power yet. It’s scary and awesome to witness.

  10. Did Lebron James and company ask Parick Mahomes about his past George Zimmerman Twitter posts?

  11. The Goat is speaking man can’t even read defense yet won a super bowl quit playing with this man name

  12. Wow…that’s freaking absurd…and he’s 24. Damn, look out NFL. If he didn’t know exactly what he was doing, and threw 50 Tds and got a MVP too, what does that say about the other QBs who have never gotten a sniff of those accolades?

  13. Tyrant Justice

    the NFL is in trouble…geezus

  14. It’s scary that he’s only playing at 50% Just think when he starts playing at a 100%!!!

  15. For Patrick Mahomes, he will learn to read Defense good, if he wants to make
    things happen. Tom Brady. Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, Many quarterbacks, could read defense. There main problem was their own offensive line, which many were an are still awesome. You will see Patrick Mahomes in the contending
    if he does not get sidelined, or injuries badly. HE will be in shape, and be ready to
    win games as they come. Good Luck Patrick and all your endeavors. God Bless and Keep Him Safe.

  16. PMII not only just confirmed his greatness, but also the greatness of the Chiefs’ coaching staff, his teammates, and Alex Smith, who deserves way more credit than what he’s already received. We are witnesses!!

  17. This nuts. Could be new goat

  18. Garrett Swickard

    The rest of the league fucked lmao

  19. Lmao this guy has been playing at like 50%💀. Took over the league in 2 seasons. I’m out✌🏾 🚶🏾‍♂️🚶🏾‍♂️🚶🏾‍♂️

  20. He could read them good enough during the super bowl, especially when he was recognizing what SF was running and called his own plays

  21. He is a good player 👍🏼👍🏼

  22. Chip Chipperson

    He said he knew coverages, which would help him pre snap reads and progressions. If understanding coverages is a Bachelor’s degree then reading the defense would be the Masters Degree.

  23. It’s very rare for someone like Mahomes to come into the game and progress as quickly as he has, he will have an outstanding career if he stays healthy, and could end up there with the very best that has ever played the game.

  24. Kansas city has something special when a quarterback has a league MVP, Superbowl MVP and Championship under his belt in a couple years and claims he still has a lot to learn. Mahomes is intelligent and if he takes care of his body he might shatter nearly every passing record.

  25. supablackdynamo

    Lmaooooooo, so this dude is like yeah you know I went super saiyan blue with no effort, but I think if I work at it, I can dominate the NFL with perfected Ultra Instinct. I’m dead. Mans is not real.

  26. Ricky Springfield

    Best quarterback, nay player in NFL history.

  27. So the most talented player in the last 50 years doesnt know how to read defense and throws 5000 yards and 50 touchdowns in his first year as a starter. Wins the superbowl in his second. Still has a long way to go?? Yaaaaaa. Good luck every other team in NFL. This is by far the best player in the game and its not close.

  28. So basically he’s about to collect all the infinity stones and snap away half the NFL is what I’m hearing

  29. Wow I’m speechless his coach should be fired from junior high school lol

  30. I’m glad my team isn’t in his division

  31. That nigga Patrick

    God gifted talent

  32. Tubby Munchkin

    Niners fan here. Super bowl loss hurt big time but it couldn’t have been to a better organization than the Chiefs. From Big Red to Mahomes, they are classy and fun as hell to watch! See you next year!

  41. Me: Man this Pat Mahomes guy is pretty good. He must’ve been doing this since he was a kid because he looks born for it.

    Mahomes: I’ve been doing this for 6 years and I just learned how to read defenses.

  42. Call me crazy but He has the opportunity to be top 3 greatest quarterbacks of all time.

  43. Brady saw this and left the Pats

  44. That’s scary…
