Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has acknowledged that his goal is to be appear in as many Super Bowls as he can and win as many titles as he can. Mahomes has been absolutely phenomenal in his first three seasons in the NFL as a starter and many believe he has a real shot at becoming the greatest player of all time.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to the AFC Championships Game in 2019, before they narrowly lost to the New England Patriots in overtime. The Chiefs failed to win the title but Mahomes won the NFL MVP award that season. Then last season, Mahomes led the Chiefs past the AFC Championships Game and to the Super Bowl, in which they recovered from a 20-10 deficit to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.
"The goal is to win as many Super Bowls as possible and to be playing in this game every single year,'' Mahomes said on Wednesday when asked whether he will be happy at the end of his career with 10 Super Bowl appearances and six wins, as Brady has now.
"I'm going to have that mindset every time I hit the field, that I'm trying to get back to this game and I'm trying to win it. "We don't look that far ahead. I'm focused on this game right now, trying to win this second Super Bowl and be able to hold that Lombardi trophy and have a second ring.
But if I'm at the end of my career and I have a lot of Super Bowl rings on my hand, I'll be happy.' '
Mahomes wants to be special
The Chiefs found themselves in an uncomfortable position in last year's Super Bowl but then Mahomes delivered under pressure and led his team to a big comeback win.
Mahomes made several absolutely clutch plays in the fourth quarter to help the Chiefs win and he was later named the Super Bowl MVP. "If you look at guys like Tom, Michael [Jordan], Kobe [Bryant], LeBron [James], A-Rod [Alex Rodriguez], all these special guys, I think at the end of the day you see their work ethic and drive to win is just different than everybody else's.
That's what makes them special, and hopefully I can try to do whatever I can to have that same work ethic and drive in my career.' ' This Sunday, the Chiefs face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl LV.
