Eager To Learn
Mahomes is the best active NFL player and a high-profile figure. Despite this, he possesses remarkable humility and keeps his head down. He also has a lot of respect for Brady and revealed that he asked for his advice before the 2023 AFC Championship Game. This is important because it shows Mahomes doesn’t have a significant ego.
“I talked to Tom a little bit. I’ve a good relationship with him now and he gives me a lot of advice,” Mahomes said (via Sporting News). “Why would you not want to learn from the GOAT? Anytime anybody like that wants to give me advice, I’ll take it in. And it’s cool to see the guys that you watched growing up your whole life be able to talk to you on that type of platform.” Would Brady have done the same if the roles were reversed? We’ll never know, but Mahomes’ humility only adds to his already legendary resume.
