Patrick Mahomes says the team keeps him from getting a big head by imitating his voice and nobody does it better than Andy Reid

  • Patrick Mahomes is off to a record-setting start in his first season as the Kansas City Chiefs' starting quarterback.

  • So far, Mahomes has avoided getting a big head about his success thanks, in large part, to his teammates who keep him grounded by imitating his voice.

  • Some have described Mahomes' voice as sounding like Kermit the Frog.

  • There's a catch — Reid won't do the voice in front of other people.


Patrick Mahomes' career has included just four games started, but he has already shown that he could be the next great NFL quarterback.

The second-year quarterback has thrown 13 touchdown passes this season, breaking Peyton Manning's record for most touchdowns thrown in the first three games of a season.

With Mahomes breaking the record of a legend and all the praise that has come with his stellar play, he has managed to stay grounded and keep from getting a big head. In speaking with Lisa Salters of ESPN, Mahomes explained that he has done this with the help of his teammates who are not above making fun of his voice.

"If I have ever gotten too big of a head, they just kinda bring out the voice, you know, they try to mimic my voice," Mahomes said. "That's kinda gotten its thing in the locker room."

Some have described Mahomes' voice as sounding like Kermit the Frog, but we would never say that to his face.

But here is the real kicker. When Salters asked who imitates the voice the best, Mahomes had an eyebrow-raising answer.

"Coach [Andy] Reid does," Mahomes said. "He has the perfect imitation of the voice."

Unfortunately, Mahomes said Reid would never do the voice in front of other people, so we will have to be content imagining the coach doing the imitation.
