The Kansas City Chiefs have reached four of the last five Super Bowls, and fanbases of other teams around the league might be getting tired of all their success.

Patrick Mahomes discussed the concept of he and his team becoming villains with ESPN’s Jeff Darlington and recognized it happened previously with Tom Brady’s New England Patriots.

He also said he can play the role if that’s what other fanbases want:

“I can definitely sense it. I never felt like that because I’ve never been like that in my entire life. But it’s become a little bit funny. I don’t want to say you enjoy it. I know the Patriots had that for a while. I’m hoping we do it in a different way with a little bit more fun and personality with it. But as long as you keep winning, teams start to not like you, and I want to keep winning. So if that means some of the other teams and other fan bases aren’t going to like me, I’ll try to still have a smile on my face and not be a bad example, but I can be that villain for them if they need me to be.”

Whether other fans like it or not, Mahomes is the current face of the NFL.

The 28-year-old is in his sixth year of starting and already has a resume that features two Lombardi Trophies, two league MVPs, two Super Bowl MVPs, six Pro Bowl selections and four Super Bowl appearances.

In fact, he has never failed to reach at least the AFC Championship Game since taking over as the full-time starter in Kansas City.
