Let's be realistic, KC's O-line had 4 back-up/worse level players, whom didn't even get to play at their natural positions. It's pretty unfair to blame it on the receivers (had a pretty bad day) had no time to separate and were covered because Tampa knew all too well that they don't have to send blitzes (5 total all game), because their front 7 was just way too much for the hodgepodge KC line to handle.

Tampa also had the 6th best overall defense and 1st vs. the run. Running against them, with that line, was never an option. Mahomes played his heart out, the guy does have the chance to be one of the best when he hangs it up, but he had no chance this game.

Did you notice Tom -G.O.A.T- has more super bowls than any NFL Franchise?

Awesome ...

I've also realized that -G.O.A.T- won more Superbowls than Michael Jordan's NBA titles (what if MJ didn't go and play baseball ? )

just lost.

Not meant to be rude. I learned one thing during my time as a football player: If you lose, blame yourself. Only yourself. If you start looking for excuses, stop playing football.

It was no bad game at all. It was just so many penalties on KC, and most of them were OK-calls. Kansas had no chance. TB wanted it more, and those guys were ready for the Bowl, on point


Exactly

Nod a bad game. Great game by Tampa on both sides.

KC dropped running game, KC receivers didn't make any crucial catch, KC defense and special teams made penalties when they shouldn't, sacks came in right time...

I believe that KC won the game in their heads like 2 weeks ago. They landed in Tampa day before game. They thought they were untouchables.

But they landed on the ground soooooooo hard 😉

Bold quote equals rubbish. I had no prefered team, I couldn't care less for which team does win or lose, but playing THAT way in the most important game of the season is something which would have driven me up the wall staying up all night.

But ... I did not, so I'm happy I avoided that.

Also, Jordan played probably the most pointless sport on the planet (and the 2nd most pointless)

That alone makes -G.O.A.T- way above him...

Just my opinion on this: Comparing sports achievements is not really logical, since all those greats or so called great had to play under the conditions they had and their teams had (if it was a team sport) and many other factors.

I did quit doing such compares since a long time and I can't see what it gives anyone to say 'that guy/girl was/is the best on their game' or even '... the best ever'.

Why can't such great players from different times and sports stand side by side? Instead of some sort or list with #1 to whatever?

I'd even say that stating that one player is the greatest one in a team sport is somewhat weird, because how can we compare players from all the positions? There are even different types of players from the same position, like OLB, who play so differently. For example how one would compare Marshawn Lynch and, let's say, Christian McCaffrey.
I'm not denying the -G.O.A.T-'s achievements, but is he really that much better than the other QBs? And does the rewards mean that you're good?
For instance, let's take an example of Aaron Donald. I've never seen any DT that would be close to what he's capable of. And, for so many years, he was (or maybe he is and he is going to be) the only Rams' DL, who does anything above the NFL's average. Yet still I'd argue that he may be the best DT or even a DL, but the best defensive player? I really, really would like to say that, but I'm not sure.
TL;DR;
I'd say that -G.O.A.T- may be the GOAT pocket QB, but there are so many other options...
