Patrick Mahomes asserted his independence, stating that he is a man of his own principles and doesn’t emulate others. Despite suggestions to take a page from Tom Brady’s playbook, he declined the idea.

great quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes appear once every generation but this season has proven that he still has room for improvement. According to former Chiefs star Dante Hall,

Patrick Mahomes needs to take a page from Tom Brady’s playbook and not always try the spectacular play. There are times in which swing routes and checkdowns is the best way to secure the first down or the touch down. But for Hall, Patrick Mahomes is a little too used to the spectacular pass to Travis Kelce or Tyreek Hill. Tom Brady didn’t mind getting a little mud in his helmet every now and then, Hall thinks that’s what Mahomes is missing this season.

Amid recent struggles within the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense, Dante Hall was on Wednesday’s edition of ‘Good Morning Football’ to discuss Patrick Mahomes. He didn’t put the whole blame on the QB but also on Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. This is what Hall said:

“Patrick Mahomes, I love you. You’re my favorite quarterback, but you need to fall in love with the mundane. Yes, for five years we have fallen in love with the big plays to Tyreek (Hill) and (Travis) Kelce and all that. It’s time to be ‘Checkdown Tom Brady.’ Fall in love with the swing routes, the checkdowns. Body language is everything. When you are screaming and yelling at your players, that permeates negatively.”
