The 2020 Raiders Draft class has a chance to be historically embarrassing
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes provided insightful responses when discussing the quarterback position for the coming season.
This coming Sunday, Patrick Mahomes goes into his fourth season as quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. In their search for three consecutive Super Bowls, the Chiefs will face the Cleveland Browns, a team that almost got a surprise in the AFC Divisional Round.
Before the start of the 2021 season, Mahomes had an interview with Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, on the Black Diamonds podcast. During the interview, Mahomes discussed how Warren Moon and Doug Williams showed that black quarterbacks can thrive in the NFL after being banned from showing their talents for decades due to racism.
Not only that, Mahomes also brought up how Satchel Paige’s influence helped pave the way for Mahomes’ father to become an MLB pitcher.
You can read an excerpt from the podcast in the following tweet, with the full episode being released on Thursday, September 8th.
Patrick Mahomes offers insightful commentary on NFL history and the Negro Leagues
Some insightful comments from Mahomes in a must-hear interview that will be released on the day of the NFL’s inaugural game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.
In a short time, Mahomes cemented himself as the face of the NFL. His unreal athleticism and penchant for magical and impossible games helped him reach this point. In fact, Mahomes was voted the best player in the league by his peers in the NFL’s top 100 list.
Mahomes comes from a 2020 campaign in which he threw 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns, and six interceptions with a completion percentage of 66.3. Once again, the Chiefs go into the upcoming season as favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl LVI.
