Pro Football Reference’s Hall of Fame Monitor estimates a participant’s probabilities of making the HOF. Based on its metrics, Mahomes has as robust a case for the Hall of Fame as Bob Griese, Warren Moon and Len Dawson, who performed a mixed 50 seasons. All are Hall of Famers.
Per Stathead, Mahomes has a better profession completion proportion (67.1) than these three Hall of Fame friends and as many regular-season landing passes (192) as Griese, who performed 14 seasons, albeit in a a lot completely different period of soccer.
Where he outshines these gamers — and different Hall of Fame QBs, together with Kurt Warner, Steve Young and Troy Aikman — is within the postseason.
Aikman (three) and Young (three) have Mahomes beat in Super Bowl rings however not a lot else.
In 13 playoff begins, Mahomes is 10-3, together with a Super Bowl win. In the postseason, he has handed for 3,902 yards and 32 touchdowns. His playoff completion proportion is 66.7 (331-for-496).
Mahomes has extra postseason passing yards and landing passes than Aikman (23) and Young (20) in fewer video games. Warner, his closest playoff comp, completed his profession with the identical variety of postseason begins as Mahomes.
In the playoffs, Warner was 307-for-462 (66.5 p.c) for 3,952 yards and 31 landing passes. He went 9-4 within the postseason and received one Super Bowl.
Mahomes’ achievements already are comparable — and infrequently exceed — a number of nice QBs who got here earlier than him.
Luckily for followers, Mahomes has millions of reasons to play far past Sunday. If he determined to retire, although, the Hall of Fame would name quickly.
