Conservative talk show host and commentator Jason Whitlock believes Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes lacks Tom Brady's drive and doesn't care about winning as much as the seven-time Super Bowl champion.
“I wanted to say this about Patrick Mahomes, what we're finding out, talented, Hall of Fame quarterback, who will go down in history as one of the top 10 quarterbacks, maybe top 5 of all time. But he doesn't have Tom Brady's drive,” Whitlock said.
“Winning isn't as important to him as it is to Tom Brady,” Whitlock continued. “…The Chiefs and Mahomes are a little happy. Pat Mahomes is in every commercial he wants to be in, he has two MVPs, two Super Bowls. He has no colleague.'
“Take Brady, he was always competing with Peyton Manning,” Whitlock said. 'Who is Patrick Mahomes competing with? No one. Patrick Mahomes is no Tom Brady. He's no Tiger Woods. He's not Michael Jordan.'
Whitlock also said Mahomes is having a “mediocre season” and that “he has a number of excuses” now that Tyreek Hill is no longer Chief.

Not only did Whitlock pitch to Mahomes, but Travis Kelce also got some attention.
“His tight end is a little distracted right now,” Whitlock said of Kelce.
Kelce's celebrity profile has skyrocketed since the romantic relationship with Taylor Swift in late September.
Kelce has 813 yards for the Chiefs this season and is the fastest tight end to 11,000 yards in NFL history.
The Chiefs have faltered of late, losing to the Packers last weekend, but are still just one game out of first place in a crowded AFC playoff picture.
Mahomes has five fewer Super Bowls than Brady, and due to some minor turbulence this season, Whitlock decided to question his character.
