Ja’Marr Chase is throwing major shade at Patrick Mahomes.
Over the past few years, the Cincinnati Bengals have made a significant impact in the NFL, largely due to the impressive tandem of wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase and quarterback Joe Burrow.
Their outstanding connection and on-field chemistry have been pivotal factors in their team’s success, leading them to consecutive AFC Championship Game appearances in both the 2021 and 2022 seasons. During a media session, Ja’Marr Chase was asked about his thoughts on Patrick Mahomes, one of the league’s top quarterbacks.
In a humorous response, Chase asked, “Pat who?” which garnered attention from both the media and fans alike. When asked the same question, Burrow confidently declared Mahomes as the best NFL player, acknowledging his exceptional performances and stating that until someone surpasses his achievements, he will remain the one to beat.

Chase and Burrow’s success together has been nothing short of remarkable, as they led the Bengals to victory in the AFC Championship Game over the Chiefs in the 2021 season. This landed them a spot in the Super Bowl against the Los Angeles Rams, where despite falling short, their performance showed their immense potential as a dynamic duo.
Though they were not able to overcome the formidable challenge from the Chiefs in the following season’s AFC Championship Game, their places as elite players in the league were solidified.
While Chase’s exceptional speed, agility, and receiving skills make him a nightmare for opposing teams’ defenses, Burrow’s impressive accuracy, poise, and leadership have earned him the respect of his teammates and competitors alike. With Chase and Burrow leading the way, the Bengals’ future appears bright, and fans await their return to the field with anticipation of watching their electrifying performances once more.
