After winning his second consecutive Super Bowl championship on Sunday night, it sure did not take long for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to start talking about pursuing yet another Super Bowl ring next year.
During his postgame press conference, Patrick Mahomes made it clear that while he is going to enjoy this championship, he will pretty immediately shift his focus on next year as he and his team try to win their third consecutive Super Bowl.
“I’m going to celebrate tonight. I’m going to celebrate at the parade,” Mahomes said postgame. “Then, I’ll do whatever I can to be back in this game next year and try to go for that three-peat. It’s an ongoing thing in the NFL. Once you win that championship, you have those parades and you get those rings, and then you’re not the champ anymore. You have to come back with that same mentality.
“I’ve learned from guys like [Tom] Brady who have been the greatest of all time, at the top of the level. That’s my mindset. I’m going to celebrate with my guys for how we’ve done this, but then we’re going to work our way to get back to this game next year.”
Several teams have been able to win the Super Bowl twice in a row, but no team has ever been able to win in three years straight. We’ll have to see whether or not Mahomes and the Chiefs can become the first next year.
