The national media spotlight isn't as kind to Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes as the overwhelming love from Kansas City and so we start this news day by reviewing some of the negativity confronting the footballer on the brink of greatness . . .
Moreover, the question here is simple given irresponsible sports chat about "sending a message" and obvious frustration from progressives that Patrick Mahomes isn't taking up the mantle of Colin Kaepernick . . .
IS PATRICK MAHOMES UNDER ATTACK BECAUSE HE'S CLEARLY NOT A SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR AND HAS A LIKABLE MAINSTREAM PUBLIC PERSONA???
More importantly . . .
WILL THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QB PROVE THE HATERZ WRONG?!?!?
Just a bit more worthwhile than fanboy human interest stories . . . Check politics making its way onto the field of the big game:
Professional provocateur Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk opened up a can of worms on Thursday saying the San Francisco 49ers should "trade the risk of 15 yards" if they can send a message by laying late hits on Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been absolutely ridiculous thus far in the playoffs and all of Kansas City is hoping that he can continue that type of play when they face the 49ers in Super Bowl 54. How should a defense try to slow him down?
Patriots fans are used to what Chiefs fans are going through right now. When you have the best quarterback in the league and perhaps the best team, and you're threatening to win a Super Bowl and there's a chance you'll get there multiple times, people are going to root for you to lose.
Earning Qualified Praise
Jeff Chiu/Associated Press There will be no shortage of praise for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the days leading up to the Super Bowl. Consider San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh among those completely enamored with last season's MVP.
TKC TOLD YOU SO!!!DELETED TWEETS IRK ACTIVISTS!!!
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes came under fire on social media over his old tweets about the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case and his apparent support for law enforcement. The 2011 tweets surfaced prior to the AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and the Tennessee Titans and appeared to show Mahomes and his former high school football teammate talking back-and-forth about the case and the trial.
Certainly Worth The Hassle
In an ESPN In$ider article published on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler examined the situation in which the Kansas City Chiefs and their quarterback Patrick Mahomes will find themselves after Kansas City's season ends. Still on his rookie contract, Mahomes is tied to the Chiefs through the 2020 season.
Kansas City Fanboys Eat It Up
Hy-Vee, a chain of 265 supermarkets in eight Midwestern states, launched its exclusive Mahomes Magic Crunch cereal in August, prior to an NFL season that would end with dynamic quarterback Patrick Mahomes leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a very rare Super Bowl.
