For his second season as a starter, winning the Super Bowl LIV and being named as the Super Bowl MVP has been really an impressive year for Mahomes, but all these doesn’t add difference towards the rankings.
In addition to this, he has signed a massive long-term contract extension with the Chiefs. Earlier this week the 24-year-old became the youngest sports owner in history, joining the Kansas City Royals’ ownership group.
Mahomes’ response about being No. 4 came from a tweet with a single emoji, that indicates somehow he’d use the ranking as motivation.
As the Chiefs noted, good things happened after Mahomes was ranked fourth last year.
Chiefs fans weren’t satisfied with the rankings, especially Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson at No. 1 and Seattle’s Russell Wilson at No. 2, finishing ahead of Mahomes.
ESPN Dan Orlovsky, also a former NFL quarterback, and Louis Riddick, was baffled to see Mahomes at No. 4.
Mahomes truly deserved ranking at the top five of list, as the football star continues to defy conventional quarterback wisdom with breathtaking throws and artful mastery of the game. For this year 2019, he led Kansas City to their first Super Bowl title in 50 seasons and he did so after having dislocated his kneecap in Week 7. started 14 games and completed 66% of his passes for 4,031 yards, 26 touchdowns and just five interceptions.
During the postseason he managed to complete 72 passes for 901 yards and 10 touchdowns with just two interceptions. Mahomes didn’t show being exceptional in Super Bowl LIV, but was still good enough to lead Kansas City to claim the win.
