Former Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith released a stunning verdict about Patrick Mahomes and his elite Super Bowl story…

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, on the verge of leading his team to a fourth Super Bowl in six years, has firmly established himself among the NFL’s elite. The reigning NFL and Super Bowl MVP’s stellar performance has catapulted him into the conversation of the greatest quarterbacks of all time (GOATs). Former Chiefs and 49ers quarterback Alex Smith recently shared a captivating tale that sheds light on Mahomes’ early days.

According to Smith, the Chiefs’ general manager, Brett Veach, identified Mahomes’ potential when the quarterback was just a freshman at Texas Tech in 2014. Veach entered the quarterback room, instructing his players to watch Mahomes’ tape, showcasing the foresight that would eventually reshape the Chiefs’ quarterback landscape.

What adds a fascinating twist to the narrative is that, at the time, Smith was in his second season as the Chiefs’ starting quarterback, having been acquired from the San Francisco 49ers. The eventual transition from Smith to Mahomes occurred in 2018, marking a significant turning point for the Chiefs.

Mahomes is now poised to lead the Chiefs against Smith’s former team, the San Francisco 49ers, in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11. This matchup holds particular intrigue as it marks the second time in five years that these two teams will face each other on the grand stage, creating a compelling storyline surrounding the clash of the Chiefs and the 49ers.
