You must remember that Brett Favre was a Green Bay Packer. He would rather not see his beloved team have to play Mahomes and the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, although they might win that game with Rodgers and his team playing so well.

Mahomie didn’t look good getting up off the ground. He looked like he wasn’t there. No matter the circumstances if a player has a concussion they should be forced to miss the next game at the very least for this very reason. After the first one, the rest come easier. You think the Bills aren’t going to put a little something extra on those hits if he plays? I can’t see how he could possibly play this week or possibly in the SB if KC wins.

^^and yet he didn't have a concussion moron. Who cares what YOU think? You don't understand football. Try to figure out what really happened and get back to us. Vegetable Lasagna.

We can bitch about Farve's intentions but, I'm not so sure that for long term health of 15 that he doesn't sit out.

That was a dirty player move that injured Mahomes. He was already on the ground and tackled and IN A DEFENSELESS POSITION when the defender intentionally squeezed and wrangled his neck.

Reviwed the video a few times and saw this was not a concussion event, but potentially worse. I saw it as a hit/grab that caused an impact and manipulation of the neck vertebrae. It has been watered down in some reports to a "nerve tweak". This "tweak" could have sent Patrick into a wheel chair. Another example of the brutality of the NFL, and the big hits many fans wait for in this "game". None of the Gladiators believe they will be the next one to pay the penalty of a career ending, life changing injury.
