NFL players have spoken: Lamar Jackson is their top-rated player for 2020. Super Bowl champion and fellow NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes? He’s a few spots below.
Don’t think Mahomes didn’t notice.
QB RANKINGS from SN: Mahomes is number 1 in our book
The Chiefs ‘quarterback finished fourth in the players’ vote for this year’s Top 100 list, behind Jackson, Russell Wilson and Aaron Donald. The final spots were revealed on NFL Network on Wednesday evening.
Mahomes immediately came to the point on Twitter:
Kansas City fans should appreciate the drive; Mahomes, 24, has already won a ring and signed an extension that could reach just over $ 500 million after just three NFL seasons.
Meme creators got to work quickly, with “The Last Dance”, “The Office” and other more esoteric sources.
Mahomes was also fourth in the mood last year, meaning leading a team to a comeback win in the Super Bowl and earning Super Bowl MVP couldn’t improve his stash. A Chiefs fan saw this as positive.
Mahomes and Jackson are scheduled to close week 3 in Baltimore on Monday Night Football.
