With all the talk regarding New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees competing for this year’s NFL MVP award...
(Ahem, Albert Breer)
I love what Patrick Mahomes has done this year. But I'm sticking with Drew Brees as MVP for a really simple reason: On big stages, he's come up huge for the Saints. Outstanding against the Rams, Steelers and Eagles.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) December 24, 2018
...the Kansas City Chiefs opted to go on offense this week by releasing a must-watch video for any Chiefs fan, with the quick and easy hashtag, #MVPat.
Here’s the video if you haven’t seen it:
Mahomes was asked about the video, which had more than 410,000 views and counting as of this writing, on Wednesday afternoon.
“My mom is in town, so she for sure showed me as quick as she could,” Mahomes said. “It’s awesome. Those guys did a great job with the video. I thought it was really cool. For me, it’s all about these next few games, play by play of this next game against the Raiders and then the chance to hopefully keep it going.”
Mahomes said he appreciates all the team and fan support when it comes to winning the league’s award for top player.
“It speaks to this community and organization,” he added. “They really truly care about the players. They care about the Chiefs and we care about them. This community is special like that and I am glad to be a part of it.”
As Mahomes said all the right things, the odds seemed to shift in his direction. Mahomes is now the 43-to-100 (fractions 101 tell me that can’t be reduced) ton win the award.
Of course, if you simply go to the numbers, the winner is inarguable.
PATRICK MAHOMES: 369/556, 4,816 yards, 48 touchdowns, 11 interceptions | 58 rushes, 271 yards, 2 touchdowns
DREW BREES: 364/489, 3,992 yards, 32 touchdowns, 5 interceptions | 31 rushes, 22 yards, 4 touchdowns
And in case you were wondering, Breer heard you.
I’ll admit this: I had no clue how seriously that Chiefs/Mahomes fans are taking the MVP race. This is a bloodsport to them.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) December 24, 2018
Kansas City loves its own.
