While Patrick Mahomes is incredibly gifted, a lot of his talent is still very raw. By his own admition on multiple occasions, he still needs to work on the fundamentals of being a quarterback.
I love a roaring Chiefs come-from-behind victory after being down by 24 points just as much as anyone. It is exciting football and something that only a select few quarterbacks in the league could pull off, but it would be nice to not have to bight my nails down to the quick every time the Chiefs are down by a touchdown or two.

Other than the Raiders, Broncos and teams of their caliber, it would be nice to see Mahomes come out and utterly dominate teams, or at least stay even with them throughout the game, and not have every game be a heart attack waiting to happen.
It’s exciting and so much fun to watch those come back victories against good teams like the Texans, but not every Chiefs victory has to be so nerve wracking and that is something that Mahomes will learn with experience.
Not only that, but as gifted as Mahomes is, he has taken unnecessary risks. More than once, he has thrown his famous no-look pass and missed his mark, and you know had he just looked it would have been a touchdown, but again, those are mistakes that can be mended with experience.
Full disclosure, I was really stretching to come up with possible cons, and as I stated above, a lot of those were “what if” scenarios.
The Mahomes contract is awesome for absolutely everyone involved – Mahomes, his family, the Chiefs, the fans, and football as a whole, but I was trying hard to really examine the other side of this issue and see what obstacles could pop up in the coming years, if any at all.
Only time will tell how people will be speaking of the Mahomes contract in the year 2031, but when we speak of it we will speak well.
