Patrick Mahomes’ younger brother Jackson has noticeably tried to stay out of the headlines this season.
Whereas coverage of him was unavoidable last year, Jackson has kept a relatively low profile during the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2022-23 campaign. (In contrast with his sister-in-law, Brittany, who just this week blew up online for her Christmas outfit.)
That said, whenever he does show himself – it proves to be a cringey affair.
This week Jackson landed in the news cycle once more. And yet again, it proved to be for something unfortunate.
Patrick and Brittany recently had their second child, Patrick Lavon Mahomes III. Their first child, a daughter, was named Sterling Skye.
During a session with the media this week, Patrick revealed his brother Jackson’s contribution to the naming process. That contribution? Nicknaming his new nephew “Bronze.”

“My brother Jackson, whenever we were trying to find something that was a little unique and different, he said, ‘What about Bronze? It fits perfectly with Sterling,'” Patrick told reporters.
“So, we went with that,” Patrick continued. “It works out well. He can have his own thing now where he’s not Patrick, he’s Bronze, even though he’s Patrick. And Sterling and Bronze can have that connection moving forward.”
Patrick and Brittany have formed a beautiful family with two beautiful kids, but “Bronze” is a terrible nickname. Of course it came from Jackson, who never fails to find new and innovative ways to humiliate himself and those closely linked to him.
Whether he is weirdly calling out opposing fans in the most obnoxious way imaginable, causing humiliating scenes at bars or being uncomfortably forceful with random women – this guy is really hard to tolerate.
And he should be kept as far away as possible from naming or nicknaming kids.

One day Jackson may become less reviled by the general public. But it will require him staying out of the spotlight long-term in a way he has proven incapable of up to this point.
Will that change at some point in the foreseeable future?
Time will tell.
