San Francisco 49ers safety Tashaun Gipson Sr. has praised Kansas City Chiefs MVP Patrick Mahomes ahead of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday – but some think Gipson is playing mind games.
Gipson Praises Mahomes
The two sides go head-to-head at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 11, with the tie set to be one for the ages.
One man whose name has been on everyone’s lips ahead of the ‘big game’ is Patrick Mahomes. The quarterback is the man to stop for the 49ers and San Francisco safety Tashaun Gipson Sr. was asked how they plan on doing that.

“He could make my mailman catch for 700 yards. All you’ve got to do is catch the ball!
“So it’s tough in itself because, like, he’s just a heck of a player.”
