KEY POINTS

  • Tom Brady picks one special skill he wants to learn from Patrick Mahomes
  • Brady admits to being a fan of Mahomes' iconic no-look pass
  • Both players express admiration ahead of their Super Bowl game this weekend

With everything that he has achieved in the NFL, Tom Brady has already cemented his legacy as one of the best to ever grace the gridiron.

Though the 43-year-old is in the all-time conversation for a reason by being a total-package competitor on the field, there are still certain tricks of the trade that Brady would wish to learn--particularly Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes's trademark pass.

Brady and  Mahomes sat down for a joint interview with Kay Adams during Super Bowl LV Opening Night to discuss their mutual admiration for each other.

Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face the Chiefs at the NFL’s showpiece event on Sunday.

During the chat, Brady admitted that he is an admirer of Mahomes’ signature no-look pass. The six-time Super Bowl winner acknowledged that the game of football has evolved, making it impossible for him to learn the skill from the Chiefs rising star.

“I love that too,” Brady said. “That’s more of the younger generation, they figured out how to do that, I don’t know.”

“You can’t teach an old dog some of those new tricks,” he added in jest. “ But that’s definitely a new trick that I wish I could learn.”

When asked by Adams if he could steal any attribute from Mahomes what would it be, Brady answered with a long list of the latter's talents.

“I love how he drifts back in the pocket, takes it six yards, and then drifts back 15 yards and flicks that ball six yards down the field on a dime to Tyreek [Hill] or something like that,” he stated.

“He has great awareness of the pocket, great vision, and knows exactly when to get rid of the ball. He’s got that nice sweet little whippy arm that I used to have when I was younger,” Brady continued. “He’s got all the physical tools and all the mental tools and he’s going to be in this game quite a few times in my opinion.”
