Michael Irvin’s Patrick Mahomes prediction is even crazier than Chiefs fans

Everyone in Kansas City and everyone associated with the Kansas City Chiefs are excited because today you’re going to see the rarest of rare events: a rookie QB starting for the Chiefs. That would be Patrick Mahomes. (Every time I mention Mahomes starting, I feel like I have to mention I also like Alex Smith and am glad he is starting the playoffs for them next week)

This season is the 30th anniversary of the last time the Chiefs had a quarterback they drafted win a game for them. Some of you might remember Brodie Croyle, who went 0-10 to start (and end) his career. He didn’t win one. It was Todd Blackledge early in the 1987 season. Here is the box score from that game.

There are some fun reactions from Chiefs fans who are excited to see the rookie play today. I’m not sure any Chiefs fan is as optimistic about Mahomes today as NFL Network’s Michael Irvin who predicted an insane stat line for Mahomes.

Here are some other funny Mahomes mania tweets.
