Who would make a better Ninja Warrior: Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady?

Seriously. We have no idea.

It’s the time of year where ANW Nation attempts to join its siblings in the SB Nation universe in discussing the Super Bowl, which will take place this Sunday, February 7. Yay!

But we think this could be fun, bear with us. The two teams heading to the big game are the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quarterbacks are obviously a big thing. Especially in this case when both teams have quarterbacks so well known that even I can nod along in vague recognition when someone talks sports at me.

Which means there’s only one thing to do. NINJA DEBATE.

Who would make the better Ninja Warrior? Patrick Mahomes II or Tom Brady?

We have actually discussed Tom Brady on this site in the past, and it seemed like people hated it. The general consensus was he would not make a good Ninja and you’d rather not talk about it.

Look, I was born and raised in New England. I, too, would rather not discuss Tom Brady. But, as any New Englander knows, you cannot avoid the Brady. He’s like mud season and leaf peepers. No matter what your opinion is, it’s going to happen anyway. So buckle up, here we go.

Let’s do a quick comparison of our Ninja Warrior contenders based on the information we have. They’re both great quarterbacks. They catch and throw things with ease. They are in shape. They work out. These are all strong baseline foundations for Ninja Warrior skills. Their physical stats aren’t that far apart either, except Patrick is the young buck.

Patrick Mahomes

  • 6’ 3”
  • 230 lbs
  • 25-years-old
  • Kansas City Chiefs

Tom Brady

  • 6’ 4”
  • 225 lbs
  • 43-years-old
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers

So what’s the difference between them? We scoured their Instagram accounts for evidence of Ninja-ness. And it wasn’t much help as they both share very similar content. Football, family, and looking fashionable as they walk into games. Okay.

After a lot of scrolling, here’s what we have.

Tom Brady was a Storm Trooper for Halloween.
