The Father of the Chiefs superstar went on “2 Gems and a Mic Podcast.” The host of the show mentioned how Mahomes II is leading his team to its 4 Super Bowl appearance, achieving this feat before even touching the age of 30. Considering Pat Mahomes Sr.’s extensive baseball career, the host of the show, Linda, wanted to know how he felt about his son, considering his own career at that age. By the looks of it, the QB’s father has his answers all figured out.

The 2x Super Bowl champion’s father acknowledged that he has achieved a lot of success very early on in his career. Per him, Mahomes has been maturing and evolving over the years and has also improved upon his game. His maturity comes from the fact that he is not taking unnecessary risks, as he now has a penchant for “protecting the ball” and knows “how to win now.”

 A lot of it has to do with the system that Mahomes currently is in. His father explained how back in the day, he had all the weight on his shoulders and took it upon himself to win the games. Taking all the responsibility when you have a team to look after indeed wears you out. The same might have happened to the Chiefs QB, per his dad.

“Back in the day, he felt like he had to do everything to win and now he realizes for the first time in his life, from high school to college to being in the pros, he has a defense now, he has a defense now and they’re playing lights out,” said Mahomes’ father. The matter of the fact is, the Chiefs’ defense is undoubtedly playing “lights out”.

With players like Chris Jones, Patrick Mahomes surely has been feeling more confident in the team’s defense. He made more than a million dollars this year for meeting his sacks and snaps quota. Apart from the monetary gains, Jones showed just how important of a member he is to protect the Chiefs quarterback. The DT amassed 20 solo tackles and 10.5 sacks in the regular season.

Another crucial piece around Mahomes has been Charles Omenihu, who has unfortunately been ruled out of the Super Bowl because of a torn ACL. This happened in the game against the Baltimore Ravens. He had 18 solo tackles and 7 sacks this season. Unfortunately, we won’t see him in the SB LVIII, but his role in the journey of the Chiefs reaching the SB has been majorly visible.
