Tom Brady and Patrick Homes showed the mutual respect they have for one another as the Buccaneers QB shared one of the “powers” he’d like to have from Mahomes ahead of Super Bowl LV.
“He [Mahomes] just has a great awareness of the pocket,” the 43-year-old star QB explained in a clip shared by the NFL on social media Friday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“An incredible vision of the field,” he added. “He knows exactly when to get rid of the ball. He’s got great poise in the pocket.” (RELATED: Tom Brady Says The Buccaneers Have ‘A Lot Of Work To Do’ Before The Season Starts)
“Got that nice sweet little wippy arm that I used to have when I was a little bit younger,” Brady continued. “He’s got the athletic ability to extend plays. He’s got all the physical tools and he’s got all the mental tools. He’s gonna be in this game quite a few more times in my opinion.”
At one point, Brady noted how far the Kansas City QB has come in a short time, sharing how he was NFL MVP in 2018 and overcame injuries in 2019 to win the Super Bowl.
Earlier in the interview, the Chiefs’ star QB talked about his first memories of Brady and said “it’s truly amazing” to watch him play.
“I think the first one [memory of Brady] I remember is when he’s grabbing the trophy, he’s throwing it up and he’s screaming and yelling,” Mahomes shared. “Just the excitement. I mean it’s been forever. Seems like every single year he’s just getting better.”
“It’s truly amazing to watch,” he added. “And it’s amazing to go up against because you know you’re going up against the best.”
The Chiefs and Buccaneers will play in Super Bowl LV Sunday at Raymond James stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida.
