Patrick Mahomes is a future NFL Hall of Famer. This isn't really up for debate at this point.

It’s actually mindblowing to consider he’s only being a starting quarterback since 2018 given his overall level of respect and recognition in the league. In his short career, he’s won a Super Bowl, an MVP award, and defined an entire playing style that Zach Wilson cannot emulate no matter how much the Jets would like him to. He's already had a career's worth of accolades in only four seasons. And this weekend he has a golden opportunity to put himself in the driver’s position for his second MVP award. 

With his top competition for the award, Jalen Hurts, nursing a shoulder injury, Mahomes has a chance to further his case this weekend when the Chiefs host the Seahawks at home. He’s already leading the league in passing by nearly 500 yards—and this is after losing Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins.

Hurts is a very deserving candidate, and had just taken over as the favorite to win the award. But it seems he might have to wait another year if the Eagles ultimately decide to rest him for the playoffs. In a just world, Justin Jefferson would be the runaway favorite to win the trophy given he’s on pace to make history.

But this isn’t a just world. It’s a quarterback’s world. So an early congrats on your new hardware, Pat. Very well deserved.
