Shannon Sharpe puts Patrick Mahomes miles ahead of Bengals’ Joe Burrow
Speaking on the Undisputed Show NFL pundit and analyst Shannon Sharpe revealed his thoughts on Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes. Sharpe was clear in his mindset that Joe Burrow doesn’t come close to Mahomes at this stage and the Kansas City Chiefs man is the best in the NFL currently. Additionally, Sharpe added that there’s nothing to debate about who’s better, as Patrick Mahomes is the clear winner.
“There was really no debate. There’s nothing to debate. The resumes don’t line up, and I think he put that notion to bed yesterday with the performance that he had. He answered all the questions,” Sharpe said.
“He checked all the boxes yesterday. He [is saying], ‘until other notice, I am, unquestioned, the best quarterback in football.’ Yesterday you saw the great attributes [that] Patrick Mahomes possesses.”
Shannon Sharpe did appreciate Joe Burrow as well but believes this competition definitely belongs to Patrick Mahomes at the moment. Even if an ankle sprain against an inform Cincinnati Bengals team, he pulled out the goods.
“I watched Joe Burrow slightly, I’ll just go slightly outplay Patrick Mahomes yet again. He was in position to be 4-0 against Patrick Mahomes. But I’m gonna give Mahomes this. He was on an ankle that I thought was about 80%. That’s what I predicted it would be, and that’s exactly what it was. And he practiced all week,” said Sharpe.
