There are clear challenges in trying to defend Patrick Mahomes.
But just in discussing Mahomes’ ability, Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday it’s almost better to talk about what doesn’t surprise him from the QB.
“He can do anything and everything,” Arians said. “There is no pocket because he keeps backpedaling and no one in the league — any league — can stop him from throwing that ball. Or he’ll keep backpedaling and throw that ball as accurately down the field as he can. He is a very, very unique player.”
The Buccaneers already had a front-row seat to Mahomes’ talent earlier this season when Kansas City beat Tampa Bay in November. The benefit of experience can’t hurt in trying to slow Mahomes down for Super Bowl LV.
