Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes seems to be keeping tabs on the happenings during the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine. The 2020 Super Bowl champion remembered a memory he wanted to forget after seeing Tyquan Thornton’s amazing 4.21 seconds 40-yard dash. He recalled his 4.80 seconds attempt at the 40-yard dash drill and wondered what went wrong.

Mahomes appeases his fans by theorizing that maybe it was the change of the turf that affected Thornton’s performance. But his shame was further amplified by the NFL Network, who compared his 40-yard dash attempt with 4 quarterbacks.

Mahomes seems far from happy about how he was portrayed by the broadcasters. He was wondering why his run video was used at all. But it does provide NFL fans with a golden yet memorable moment they can hold onto for years to come. While Mahomes and the Chiefs fans will not be happy, the footage will be something they want to forget.

Patrick Mahomes proves his greatness during game time

There are very few QBs in the NFL who can claim they are one of the best in the world. Mahomes is one of those players and showed his quality when the game was on the line. The Chiefs QB was selected as the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and showed his greatness by winning the AP MVP award in 2018.

The Chiefs ended up drafting him and providing him the room to develop and later deliver an NFL Championship in 2020. While he remains upset about his 40-yard dash time, Mahomes is among the best QBs the league has got to offer.
