First, let’s caveat this by saying it’s to Tom Brady’s credit that he played for so long. He maintained his body into his mid-40s and continued operating at a high level. That’s incredible but also true that his longevity inflated his statistics. Many of his records came because he played for longer than his counterparts instead of outperforming them.
However, Mahomes is better than Brady because he’s already shattering records. He’s also showing that he’s the best quarterback of his generation by beating his rivals. The Kansas City star is doing his job in the regular season and the playoffs. He is already an incredible player who may be the greatest of all time following his jaw-dropping win at Super Bowl LVII (via Time).
