Everyone has been rattling off their Patrick Mahomes hot takes this week.

Stephen A. Smith didn't have a ton of belief in Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl. Overall, Smith had the Eagles winning the game as they had a better all-around team. However, Mahomes and the Chiefs went on to prove everyone wrong. Of course, Mahomes won the game with a last-minute field goal. Moreover, he won Super Bowl MVP thanks to a three-touchdown performance that Chiefs fans will be remembering for a very long time. At this point, it is hard not to admit Mahomes' greatness.

Throughout this entire week, pundits have been giving their hot takes on Mahomes and what he means to the Chiefs franchise. Furthermore, many have been attempting to rank Mahomes on the all-time quarterback lists. Of course, there are some people who believe that he still has a ways to go before he can crack the top 5. However, there are others who are ready to crown him as a top 3 QB ever. As it turns out, this debate was had on First Take this morning.

Stephen A. On Mahomes

In the video up above, Stephen A. took the position that Mahomes, was, indeed, the third-greatest quarterback ever. Although, he has his work cut out for him if he ever wants to get close to Tom Brady. In second, Smith had Joe Montana who has four Super Bowl titles. Needless to say, if Mahomes can get himself two more titles quickly, then he will likely surpass Montana fairly quickly. It also helps that Mahomes already has over 200 touchdowns and that he is a third of the way to Brady in just five years of being a starter.

The path for Mahomes to become the GOAT is set. Of course, it is not going to be easy, especially since the league is filled with talented players. However, if anyone could get to Brady, it would have to be none other than the Chiefs gunslinger. Let us know what you think of Stephen A.'s position, in the comments down below.
