‘Weird’ Criticism

Mahomes pointed out that black quarterbacks receive ‘weird criticism’ compared to their white counterparts. He believes that critics always talk about their athleticism rather than their mental capacity. His polarizing comments revealed the challenge that he and his fellow black QBs deal with (via Bleacher Report).

“We’ve got guys that can think just as well as they can use their athleticism,” he said. “It’s always weird when you see guys like me, Lamar, Kyler kind of get that on them when other guys don’t. But at the same time, we’re going out there to prove ourselves every day to show we can be some of the best quarterbacks in the league.”

Streetball

The aforementioned unnamed coach made several comments to The Athletic about Mahomes’ ability. The public didn’t receive them well because they were ridiculous. However, their most scathing comment was the following. They said: “Take his first read away, what does he do? He runs, he scrambles, and he plays streetball.”

Mahomes is statistically one of the greatest quarterbacks who ever played an NFL game. To say that he plays ‘streetball’ is ridiculous because he won a Super Bowl in this style. He could easily have two more rings if things went his way. Sometimes offseason drama emerges from the dumbest statements.

Jealousy

One of the main reasons why offseason drama surrounded Mahomes is because of jealousy. Inwardly, people know that he’s a brilliant player and will break all kinds of records. But there’s no pleasing some of these small-minded folk who hold his success against him.

Mahomes secured financial freedom for future generations of his family. He also continues to achieve amazing things on the field as one of the NFL’s top players. Armchair fans watch him play and get upset because they’re not enjoying the same benefits (via Essentially Sports).
