“He (Mahomes) doesn’t have the accolades to be able to call him the greatest ever, but he doesn’t need seven in my opinion”, said Wright. However, Wright’s assessment of Mahomes’ abilities is not far from the truth. However, even he would like to stack as many rings as possible, before ending his career. And in just 2 games, he can have one more.

On the quest for three rings

The 28-year-old Mahomes is still young and compared to how long Brady played, Mahomes has more years in the tank than he has already played. With 2 Super Bowl titles already to his name, he can march toward another Super Bowl game after the monumental clash this week.
