Brady would clearly like to have Mahomes’ ability to throw those viral “no-look passes”. The Chiefs quarterback has become somewhat of an expert at throwing those kind of balls and they always lead to the craziest plays. Brady’s ability to play at age 43 is already something to marvel at, imagine if he could throw the ball like Mahomes too.
Tom Brady Speaks Highly About Patrick Mahomes
Brady and Mahomes have matched up four times against each other, and each game has been something wonderful to watch. As a result, these quarterbacks have somewhat of a rivalry forming. It’s very rare to see this kind of rivalry with quarterbacks who have such a large age difference, but with Brady anything is possible.
In the media day session, Brady continuously showed his admiration for Mahomes’ arm. He said he’d love to have Mahomes’ ability to avoid pressure and chuck the ball downfield about 60 yards like it was nothing.
Of course, Brady mentions this because Mahomes is one of the best, if not the best, at launching the ball downfield. He can throw ball as far as his receivers can run, and it’s that special ability that has escalated the Chiefs offense to where they are now.
Moreover, Mahomes’ ability has translated to Madden 21 too. His Superstar X-factor is “bazooka” which lets him launch the ball 70 yards downfield. Tyreek Hill has become especially dangerous in this offense.
Additionally, Brady also noted that he used to have this ability back when he was young. However, Brady’s arm was certainly never as dangerous as Mahomes’. At the moment, Brady has found a way to reignite his deep ball this past year. Having weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Antonio Brown definitely helps.
Brady will face off against Mahomes in less than a week in a highly anticipated Super Bowl showdown. Both teams rely heavily on the passing arms, and so it’ll be a battle of two of the best quarterbacks in the game. Fans are in for a treat.
