Chiefs quarterbackcreated a minor controversy this offseason when a fan told him to watch out for Chargers quarterback and Mahomes replied, “I’ll see it when I believe it.”
In addition to being a slip of the tongue — Mahomes meant to say, “I’ll believe it when I see it” — it also came across to some as dismissive of Herbert. But Mahomes later, and today Herbert put the whole story to bed.
“I think it’s pretty cool that Patrick Mahomes knows who I am,” Herbert said. “I’m cool with it. I have such great respect for what he’s been able to do, and I’ve watched him so much.”
MMQB: How the Chiefs' Defense Helped Turn the Season Around; More From Week 11
Patrick Mahomes hasn't been putting up the point totals we're accustomed too, but a healthier D has Kansas City back in first place. I’m sure Andy Reid wouldn’t have minded seeing Sunday’s game look a little different than it did. Maybe in a perfect world, Patrick Mahomes wouldn’t have been taking big shot after big shot from Micah Parsons, the NFL’s newest freak-show defender. I’m sure he didn’t want four of his offense’s first eight possessions ending without a single first down. And the turnovers he, or any football coach, could do without.
Herbert handled that well, declining to take offense and acknowledging that even after his impressive rookie season, it’s OK for football fans to think they’ll believe he’s in Mahomes’ class when they see it.
