  • Mahomes is not gonna last, you can't be a running QB and win consistently in the NFL, the history has shown this time and time again. It is better to become a pure pocket passer and only run to scramble or move away from pressure but always try to throw the ball down field or get down if you have to run, don't take unnecessary hits. Mahomes will be hard pressed to have a long career if he keeps taking injuries like this.

Wish there were more like you guys 🙌🏼 Hopefully he’s good to go next week, it’ll make for a fun game for sure if he is. And honestly if we lose I’m glad that it’s the Bills, their fan base is awesome and they’ve been waiting a long time for this moment like we did. I still want to win of course so hopefully we can get the dub but it’s most def going to be a tough game for sure 💪🏼

  • Looked like the arm around his neck cut off his circulation and he passed out for a bit. Didn't looked concussed rather woozy from being unconscious for second

    SamSamMonth ago
    • No way, in real time the play happened so quick and most of the contact was on the side of his neck and not his throat, thats not loss of circulation that quick and from that position of the defenders hand. Whiplash can cause a concussion, you don't need to smack your head off the ground. His head was going down fast and then stopped and snapped back.

    • @Jacob Chrisp So now you are telling me that Mahomes faked a perfect fencing response to a concussion??? Lmao, why would he do that? Why would he fake a concussion, not draw any penalty on the play, and then get himself sent into concussion protocol and miss the rest of the game? An action that could have cost his team the game, and could now mean he doesn't play in the next game when his team will probably need him to win? Why would he risk any of that just to get the refs to throw a penalty flag on the Cleveland Browns in a game they were easily winning at the time. Are you actually insane?

      Xavier MalcolmXavier MalcolmMonth ago
    • @Xavier Malcolm his concussion is so bad that we're probably going to see him next week LMFAO 😂😂 because his pinched nerve caused him to have a concussion.... Poor guy ....

      Jacob ChrispJacob ChrispMonth ago
    • @Xavier Malcolm first of all everyone has been doing the fencing response lately... Have you not watched the NBA have you not watched the NFL have you not watched the MLB... Literally everyone is trying to find ways to draw fouls today.. that was pure acting that's exactly why he passed the concussion test Andy Reid confirmed it....watching him do that reminded me of them basketball players that send themselves back when they barely get pushed just to draw the foul... Plus there was not enough Force to generate that kind of power... Watch a frame by frame dude even in slow motion you can tell it wasn't even a full horse collar... The worst he got was yanked around... I could literally fall to the ground and get up and display the same thing he did right now and I don't have a concussion??? LMFAO 😂😂😂 I find that funny that you think no one plays that card ....

      Jacob ChrispJacob ChrispMonth ago
    • @Jacob Chrisp Also I don't care what the Chiefs say, Mahomes was concussed. It's a travesty that they will attempt to claim he wasn't concussed so he can play this Sunday, they'll be putting their franchise QBs health at risk if they actually follow through with this course of action. The facts are simple. You simply DO NOT display the fencing response that is associated with mild to severe concussions if you haven't suffered a brain injury, it's that simple. The Chiefs can say whatever they like, they are clearly attempting to put their pursuit of a superbowl over the health of their best player. And that is highly disturbing to me.

  • I think it’s a stinger, we watched the highlights over and over and at no point does Mahomes head get stuck, or does his head strike the ground. Bad news is Mahomes head was twisted and it looked like a such an awkward head tackle. The tackler looked like he suddenly yanked Mahomes a foot just pulling on his neck. Such an awkward way his neck was jarred, really hope Mahomes is Ok.
