Patrick Mahomes is doing things at the NFL level that have never before been seen, wowing the masses practically every week with jaw-dropping highlights. In just his first year as a starter, he’s on the cusp of becoming the second player in NFL history to pass for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in a season.

He’s a transcendent talent.

On Saturday before Michigan and Florida started battling in the Peach Bowl, ESPN started comparing Shea Patterson to Mahomes.

Now, Shea Patterson is no scrub. He’s a good college football quarterback. Coming into the Peach Bowl, he had passed for 5,503 yards with 44 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Decent at this level, and may one day become a solid pro.

But Patrick Mahomes he is not.

Not surprisingly, people lost their minds.
