I think his take was… the chiefs lost a favored playoff game (in overtime), so what?

quit sensationalizing and accept it happens to the best of em. Even the dude who came after him echoed and articulated his point.
He was comparing the Chiefs collapse to the Patriots collapse in 06 against the Colts

im not sure he’s bashing anybody. He’s saying some of the greatest qbs ever had some **** mistakes (and sometimes their teams bailed them out of it), so why not mahommes?
This is why people like him don’t need to exist. We need a large sample to define most of these guys. Tell me that if Mahomes, Brady, or Mac Jones played identically his takes wouldn’t be drastically different. IMO Mahomes teammates bail him out all the time.

You are of course right. The problem here is that Nick Wright is a douche and always hates on others, so now it’s his turn.

This is hard to fathom.

Chiefs home playoff losses:

95 to Colts (As 1 seed)
97 to Denver (As 1 seed)
03 to Indy (As 2 seed)
10 to Baltimore (As 3 or 4 seed)
16 to Steelers (As 2 seed)
17 to Titans (As 3 seed)
18 to Patriots (As 1 seed)
21 to Bengals (As 1 seed)

They were the #2 seed this year, but still.

Youtube video breaking these down...

Hardman at the top of the screen. Designed play, wide open. Tucks, runs around, takes a sack.

It would have been a pretty tight throw to Kelce, but it was there. Tucks and runs for no apparent reason.

Pringle wide open cutting back to the front of the endzone...easy toss to get to the Super Bowl. Ends up holding and fumbling.

You have no way of knowing that. Burrow is in his second year and "those guys" also have more experience than Mac. We'll see what Mac might compare to if/when he gets an elite receiver to throw to.

LOL, Nick Wright is bashing Brady, Manning, and Montana today...

Who cares? This "sports talk" is the worst kind.
Professional clowns say outrageously stupid things for attention. Can't believe people still fall for this business model. An entire industry has been built around it. There are a hundred of these guys. It's perfect because no talent or insight is required. Pretty much anyone can do what these guys do.

Lots of crapping on the Chiefs for the play before the half. And I understand it cost them a FG. But in one of the most important plays in Patriots history - the Amendola 2 pointer vs ATL - the Pats ran a similar play, with a crucial difference. It was a “gotta have it play”. The Pats threw short of the EZ, Amendola caught it and got in by about a foot. The key difference was Amendola caught the ball going forward with a full head of steam. Hill caught is going sideways with his back to the EZ. He had to turn and accelerate. Too late.

So Jason Whitlock was a sportswriter in KC earlier in his career and played college FB at Kent State IIRC. In his podcast today he talks about why the most talented players aren't the best and why that is. First 10:30 of the show.


This BTW is why I have hope that a player like Mac can compete with Mahomes, Allen. Jackson and Herbert. IMO Mac is more like Burrows than the other players I listed.

He’s got an air of douchiness, but honestly I take it as bitterness in response to having to talk about Lebron and quarterbacks all day to feed his family when he actually cares about the minutia of sports…

The pti guys have a similar level but coming from a different side of that understanding where like… they’ve accepted it. And are like “we’re on top. We’re the best (or at least the most seasoned) at emotionally manipulating dumb masses”

Then you got ppl like skip bayless who are just ****in dogs chasing cars just shoveling the money in with their hands… playing into middle Americas internalized biases and such.

But I’m spitballin and projecting I don’t know these ppl.

They completely dominated the first half and had their way with the Bengals defense. Trying for the touchdown there seemed like a better than 50/50 bet, and they wanted to score as many points as they could while they were humming along. Missing out on 3 points while taking a solid risk/reward to try for 7 didn’t cost them the game. Poor execution/call happens.

They lost the game because their quarterback, considered “the best in the NFL” played one of the worst second halves in NFL history.

Nah, it was a completely different play. That was the play where they start with the receivers stacked. Effectively he had two guys right in front of him blocking and he just followed them in. Hill was out there all on his own.

I love that play the Patriots ran. It was one of those “life flashes before your eyes” slow down moments with the roller coaster of emotions in like two seconds of real time. First, all the fear of missing and losing the game. Then, Amendola gets in by like a milimeter. Then you’re jumping up and down and you see the yellow flag. Then the relief it was against Freeney.

Agreed, but the Pats play execution was so good. It wasn’t just the blocking. If Amendola was flat-footed when he caught the ball, he does not score. He was already moving forward when he caught it. KC’s play design was poor as Hill had no momentum. I also do not think Hill was the primary target on the play.
