Has a black QB won MVP?

Posted on

In recent years, the National Football League (NFL) has seen a surge in the number of black quarterbacks leading their teams to success. From Russell Wilson to Lamar Jackson, these players have been able to break down barriers and prove that they can compete at the highest level. One of the most successful of these quarterbacks is Patrick Mahomes, who has been the MVP of the league in both 2018 and 2020.

Mahomes has had a remarkable career since entering the league in 2017. He has been selected to four Pro Bowls, won two MVP awards, and led the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Super Bowl victory in 50 years. His success has been nothing short of remarkable, and it has earned him the respect of his peers and fans alike.

However, despite all of his success, Mahomes has yet to achieve one of the most prestigious honors in the NFL: MVP of the Super Bowl. This is a feat that has only been accomplished by two quarterbacks in the history of the league: Joe Montana and Tom Brady. Both players won their first Super Bowl appearance, but lost their second. In 2023, Mahomes became the first to start three Super Bowls. With the Chiefs’ win, Mahomes became the first black quarterback to win two Super Bowls, as well as to win two MVP awards.

The question now is, can Mahomes become the first black quarterback to win the MVP of the Super Bowl? It is certainly possible, as Mahomes has already proven himself to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He has the talent and the drive to succeed, and if he can lead the Chiefs to another Super Bowl victory, he will have a great chance of being named MVP.

Only time will tell if Mahomes can make history and become the first black quarterback to win the MVP of the Super Bowl. But regardless of the outcome, his accomplishments have already made him one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history. He has broken down barriers and proven that black quarterbacks can compete at the highest level. And if he can add a Super Bowl MVP award to his list of accomplishments, it will be a fitting end to an already remarkable career.
