For the most part, Patrick Mahomes has become synonymous with NFL dominance. Many fans begrudgingly admit that the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has become the heir apparent to Tom Brady when it comes to the sort of chokehold he holds over the AFC.
However, some analysts believe that he still has a lot left in his bag of tricks. One media personality issued a challenge to the 28-year-old to produce an iconic moment that will amaze everyone and acknowledge him as one of the greatest to ever play.
Peter Schrager: Patrick Mahomes should create an iconic play at Super Bowl LVIII
NFL Network’s Peter Schrager is the first to acknowledge that Patrick Mahomes has been a phenomenal quarterback ever since he entered the league in 2017 during the latest Good Morning Football episode.
“Over the years, we have become accustomed to expecting the unexpected from Patrick Mahomes,” he began.
He then recounted the various highlights he created throughout his professional career, highlighting his cannon of an arm and his cool nerves under high-pressure situations. He added that what he’s doing is stuff “that he’s not supposed to do.”
Hoever, Schrager was quick to point out one flaw in Mahomes’ impressive highlight reel.
“There’s always been this one white whale, It’s the Patrick Mahomes behind-the-back pass,” he explained. “People have claimed to have seen it, it’s been done in practice. We’ve never seen it, we’ve never seen it attempted, we’ve never seen it completed, yet we know it exists.”
He then explained that various sources from the Chiefs organization has seen him throw behind-the-back passes that go for over 20 yards.
“Patrick, what better time than now?” Schrager challenges. “They’re all coming to see you. This is the game! This is the weekend! Please drop the granddaddy of them all!”
Behind-the-back passes are usually associated with a sport like basketball, where flair has become a huge part of the game. While Mahomes’ no-look passes have shown that he has the cojones to pull off such a stunt, Super Bowl LVIII may be too important of a game for Mahomes to mess around with an untested pass. Andy Reid might even skin him alive if he tries it.
However, should Mahomes manage to pull it off, it will easily be the most iconic pass in Super Bowl history regardless of the result.
