Michael Irvin Says Patrick Mahomes is ‘God Playing QB’ Even Without Tyreek Hill

The Chiefs’ 21–14 victory over the Dolphins in Germany during Week 9 left Michael Irvin yearning for the old days of watching Tyreek Hill and Patrick Mahomes forming arguably the best tandem in the NFL.  While appearing on FS1’s Undisputed, the Hall of Fame wideout heaped praise on the NFL’s best signal-caller, essentially calling him “God playing quarterback.”

“Patrick Mahomes is basically God playing quarterback,” said Irvin. “I don’t care what you guys say, he doesn’t have quite the talent he needs at wide receiver, but he always makes just enough plays to keep them in the game. He’s a phenomenal talent.”

Irvin lamented the Chiefs’ decision to break up the playmaking trio of Mahomes, Hill, and Travis Kelce after trading the receiver to Miami before the 2022 season.  “That [Mahomes-Hill combo] should have never been broken up, that was the greatest thing I’ve ever seen on a football field,” added Irvin.

Hill hauled in 331 catches for 4,638 yards for 46 touchdowns in just 58 career games playing with Mahomes. The dynamic pair were integral members of two Super Bowl teams in Kansas City, including the club’s Super Bowl LIV 31–20 win over San Francisco.
