Blaine Gabbert has only been a member of the Kansas City Chiefs for a short time, but he’s already honed in on the key similarities between Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and recently-retired Bucs QB Tom Brady.
After three weeks of participating in organized team activities, Gabbert has seen how Mahomes operates and he believes the two quarterbacks share a common want-to when it comes to how they practice and prepare to play the NFL game.
“They are maniacal perfectionists,” Gabbert explained to reporters on Thursday. “And I mean that in the most endearing way possible. They are the two best, in my opinion, to ever play the game. To see the similarities and how they operate, meeting rooms, practice field. Now, they are completely different players as we all know, but the way they approach the game on and off the football field is the exact same way and you can see why both have had sustained success, early on, and throughout their careers.”
Gabbert certainly must consider himself lucky to have the opportunity to back up and learn from the two best quarterbacks to ever play the game.
They say that preparation is the key to success, so it’s not terribly surprising to hear that both Mahomes and Brady are similar in that regard. If anyone in the current NFL landscape has an opportunity to rival Brady’s level of success, it’s Mahomes. Gabbert’s endorsement of Mahomes’ maniacal perfectionism is just another indicator if that.
