Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes revealed that he has been talking to Tom Brady this week for advice about getting ready for the AFC Championship Game.

“I talked to Tom a little bit, I have a good relationship with him now and he gives me a lot of advice,” Mahomes said. “Why would you not want to learn from the GOAT? Any time anybody like that wants to give me advice I’ll take it in. It’s cool to see the guys you’ve watched growing up, your whole life, be able to talk to you.”

In Mahomes’ first AFC Championship Game, after the 2018 season, he lost to Brady and the Patriots. Two years later, in the Super Bowl, he lost to Brady and the Buccaneers.

Those two losses gave Mahomes a first-hand account of how prepared Brady is for the biggest games. And so Brady’s brain is one he wants to pick with the AFC Championship Game coming up on Sunday.

  1. Doesn’t Patrick know that 90% of what Brady tells him (by Brady’s own admission, which, of course, calls that very number into question) will be false?

  2. Four years ago, after the Patriots beat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship, Brady met with Mahomes privately and from Mahomes’s account, Brady was complimentary and encouraging. It isn’t surprising that their conversations would continue. It’s nice for both of them to have developed this relationship. (However, I’ll still be cheering for the Bengals.)

  3. It’s cool to see the guys you’ve watched growing up, your whole life, be able to talk to you.”

    I see the clear respect but I also see the slick burn.

  4. Brady recommended to start drinking heavily, avoid jealous super models and knowing when to retire.

  5. What can Brady possibly tell Mahommes at this point ? Brady has so much going on off the field and only is concerned about himself.

    The Bengals have demonstrated that they have KC figured out and will hand them an “L” on Sunday

  6. Tom, how come we keep losing to Joe Burrow? Is it possible we are not the best qbs playing in the NFL right now?

  7. Everyone can use advice and / or mentorship and Brady is one of the few that can do that for Mahomes leading up to Conference Championship!

  8. Doesn’t Patrick know that 90% of what Brady tells him (by Brady’s own admission, which, of course, calls that very number into question) will be false?

    You’re 10% low on your estimate.

  9. If Brady is breaking down tape of the Bengals and advising Mahomie, that could actually show up IRL. Then, there is the game management aspect and overall strategy, and how that could influence the tactics to some degree that KC uses. Clearly, they need to do something different with Cincy. Will this convo be enough? We’ll see. This is probably the Super Bowl. I don’t see San Fran’s abysmal red zone efficiency, or an inexperienced Eagles team keeping up with either of the AFC teams. I will say that Philly was my Pre-Season pick for the NFC rep in the Super Bowl. They had an incredible off season. But the schedule was not that tough and they met some teams when they were struggling during the season. It will be hard for them to overcome the QB savvy and offense that KC/Cincy will bring. You never know though. More will be revealed.

  10. Tom is telling him to look off defenders, while reading his option routes quicker in the pocket. Mahomes has to avoid any hits.

  11. I don’t think Brady would ever tell him anything that Brady thought would actually give him an advantage over himself.

  12. Holy crap there are a lot of salty commentators here! Lots of players talk to veterans for adviceI am sure. Seems like they have a pretty good relationship being competitors and all.

  13. Keep it up. PM’s practice performance and you & your teams arrogance & overconfidence is why the line switched today and the Chiefs are now favored….but mainly your arrogance. Yes you’ve won the last 3 and I even said all year they didn’t have a chance, then PM went down. That’s the 1st time since the SB season he has shown sheer will the entire team responded. All you are doing is feeding his determination.
