There’s also just one category where Mahomes beats Brady every day. Nobody can pretend that Brady was the most mobile quarterback, even during his prime. Most people rave about Mahomes’ arm but he’s also a sneakily good running quarterback who picks up the tough yards like he did in Super Bowl LVII. He might not be as quick as Lamar Jackson but he’s a better overall player than his Baltimore rival.
Bill Belichick and Brady recognized his lack of pace so they built their game around his strengths, keeping Brady in the pocket. He never lost what he never had and this acceptance enabled him to play longer. But Mahomes will be better than Brady if he stays fit because of his physical abilities. He’s also very elusive and agile on the field (via CBS Sports).
