Former Patriots running back James White recently shed light on Mahomes’ potential to claim the GOAT title from Brady in a recent interview with CBS Sports. White emphasized the significance of longevity in Brady’s illustrious career spanning over two decades during which he amassed an unprecedented seven Super Bowl championships. “At this rate, he [Mahomes] is extremely close. I think longevity does matter. Tom did it for 20 plus years, it is hard to sustain success in this league for 20 plus years,” White remarked, acknowledging Brady’s unparalleled endurance and consistency in maintaining excellence over a prolonged period.

“Patrick Mahomes already has three Super Bowl championships. He’s well on his way, he’s very dynamic, and you know whenever he’s in a football game, he has that Tom Brady effect where, ‘Oh, they have Patrick Mahomes on the other side, we can’t relax, you can’t slip up because if you give them the opportunity fourth quarter minute left last possession, he always finds a way to come through.’ So it is a very realistic expectation for to think he can catch him,” emphasized White.
