Troy Aikman faces scrutiny for 2019 Patrick Mahomes hot take after Chiefs QB wins 3rd Super Bowl title
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman learned the hard way Sunday night into Monday that time flies by real fast and that social media is forever.
A September 2019 post on X from Aikman attempted to tamp down on the hype around Patrick Mahomes as he came off a season in which he threw 50 touchdown passes. By the night of Sept. 29, 2019, Mahomes had the Chiefs at 4-0 with 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions.
The Athletic’s Kansas City X account wrote, “ICYMI: ‘Patrick Mahomes has thrown 36% of Troy Aikman’s career touchdowns, in about 8% of the games.’” They promoted one podcast interview.

Aikman fired back with, “iCYMI: Talk to me when he has 33% of my Super Bowl Titles.”
Nearly five years later, Mahomes has 100% of Aikman’s Super Bowl titles and then some.
The Chiefs quarterback solidified himself as one of the all-time great players as he led Kansas City to a Super Bowl championship on Sunday, 25-22, over the San Francisco 49ers in overtime.
Naturally, Aikman heard about it on social media.
