How NFL’s top quarterback remains motivated, plus more from Patrick Mahomes: podcast


Patrick Mahomes is a focal point at Super Bowl LVII. In his third Super Bowl in four years, and about to win his second NFL MVP award, he’s the top personality as the Chiefs prepare to meet the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Let’s hear what he has to say about his team and this season on today’s episode of SportsBeat KC, The Star’s daily sports podcast. During this interview session with reporters from around the globe, Mahomes covers an array of topics.

He speaks about motivation, his legacy, the Negro Leagues Museum in Kansas City, being part-owner of other teams like the Royals, KC Current and Sporting KC, and advice he’s received from Tom Brady. “To be able to learn from the greatest of all time,” he says of Brady, who recently announced his retirement, “I’m going to take that advice every time.”

On sharing the stage with Eagles QB Jalen Hurts as the first Black quarterbacks to share a Super Bowl stage: “There are all these guys who came before me, like Doug Williams, Warren Moon, that had great careers. ... Hopefully one day I’m looking back on this and we don’t have to talk about it because we’ve evolved the game so much.”
