Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes: Who's the real GOAT if Mahomes retires early?

She’s pulling a mom sort of Jedi trick.” Well, fans better hope all this is true, and this is some sort of clever joke, or else the Mahomes – Brady drama will last a whole lifetime. Recently, Rich and Covino covered what Mahomes’s mom Randi supposedly remarked, regarding playing into the 40s and family time.

And it looks like the Kansas City Chiefs star QB will find himself in another full-blown controversy involving Tom Brady. On July 4th, during a discussion on Fox Sports Radio’s Steve Covino and Rich Davis show, the hosts dissected Randi Mahomes’ remarks and the implications behind them.

Riding hot on the trails of the backlash from Brady fans, which Mahomes faced because of his Game Takes Away From My Kids statement on Instagram, Rich and Covino explored Randi Mahomes’ “definitely won’t play until 45 like Tom” comment. On Fox Sports Radio, Covino remarked, “Not only Mahomes’ mom but Mahomes has made a lot of comments, and they have to do with not playing later in his career.” He emphasized how Randi’s remark about Mahomes not playing until 45, unlike Brady, could be interpreted as a clear diss of Brady’s career choices.

Rich expanded on this idea, pointing out the nature of Randi’s statement. “It’s a very mom way of giving you a backhanded sort of diss,” he explained. He compared it to how a mother subtly criticizes someone without being directly confrontational, implying that Randi’s comment insinuated that Brady’s commitment to his career may have affected his family.

The hosts then discussed Mahomes’ own reflections on balancing career and family. Covino recalled Mahomes saying, “If I played until Tom’s age, my daughters would be 19, 20 years old. That would mean missing plenty of youth sporting events and other commitments. I feel like it’s taken away from family time.” This statement directly shows Mahomes’ desire to put his family over his game. Rich provided additional context by referencing Mahomes’ upbringing. He noted, “He grew up where his dad probably prioritized pitching a lot. He knows what it’s like to have his dad dedicate his time to his craft.

Towards the end of the conversation, Rich wrapped everything up by addressing the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) debate. “Mahomes needs to do something similar and start winning more Super Bowls now,” he stated. However, with all that out of the way, maybe Randi was a bit harsh with her comment but through this all, one thing is quite visible; her support for her son.

Mother – Son bond

Randi and Patrick have shared a very close relationship. In an interview with People, Randi explained how being a young mother to Patrick helped her grow as a human being. “Patrick is my first child, and I grew up with him basically. I had someone that needed me, and so, for forever, he was my little best friend. We were together 24/7, and I learned with him,” she said. Although Randi was confused regarding her path and goals in life due to her young age, little Patrick changed everything for her.

Randi has consistently stood up for her son on social media. When Patrick was criticized for his voice, which some described as “froggish,” Randi responded by defending him. Also, in the current incident covered by Covino and Rich, Randi stood her ground while supporting Patrick on his views of picking his family over his game.

Patrick also has been very open about his love for his mother. “Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom in the game. Thank you for all you do,” he shared on Facebook, showering love for Randi on Mother’s day. The mother-son duo has been quite strong since the start of Patrick’s career. The amount of support that Randi has given Patrick over the years is visible and has helped him stand at the top right now.
