Patrick Mahomes wins his second Super Bowl MVP award

Mike Florio and Chris Simms share their reactions to Thursday night's NFL Honors event where Patrick Mahomes took home his second-career NFL MVP award.

After the Chiefs beat the Texans during the regular season, quarterback Patrick Mahomes told me by phone that he’d much rather win a Super Bowl than a regular-season MVP award.

He’s now won both. And, as expected, he’s the Super Bowl MVP, for the second time.

I honestly don’t care,” Mahomes said on December 19. “As long as we win the Super Bowl, it won’t matter to me. I just try to go out there and compete. I’ve won a MVP and I won a Super Bowl, and a Super Bowl is a lot better.”

Indeed it is. He now has two. Which means he can get to work on No. 3. Which sort of feels inevitable at this point. As does No. 4 -- and maybe more.

He has just completed his fifth year as a starter. And he’s only 27.

In many ways it seems that, like Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade in the final scene of Scent of a Woman, Patrick is just getting warmed up.
