Super Bowl 55: What has been said?
Patrick Mahomes has been asked about Tom Brady ahead of the Super Bowl and has said he is ‘the type of greatness that you strive to be like’.
“The way he is able to dissect defences before the snap is something that I truly admire. I’m trying to get to that level.
“The way he is able to move within the pocket, reset his feet, and be completely calm, still make the throw right on the money, that’s something I have to continue to work on.
“He’s doing it the right way. And you can tell that by how many Super Bowl championships he has and the number of rings on his fingers.
“If you’re a young athlete, and you play any sport, if don’t look up to guys like Tom Brady, then you’re crazy.
“The guy has had success year in, year out. He continues to make himself better and not be satisfied with where he’s at.
“He’s the type of greatness that you strive to be like. I grew up watching him play and he’s still here playing – and still at the top of the game.
“I continue to watch him and the things he does on and off the field, in order to make me the best player possible.”
