He'll be back but he won't be 100%

And yet, Patrick Mahomes at 80% is still better than all of the other NFL quarterbacks. Weird.

^^^^^Oh STFU he isn't either. You idiots are so delusional.

I say golden boy does not play Sunday. This is second concussion. Lots of money riding on him and if he gets really hurt he's no good to anyone. I say the Chiefs try to win this weekend with out Mahomes in a gamble to have him 100% if they make the Super Bowl. When your brain gets scrambled so bad you can't even stand up on your own you got hurt. Look how long Dale Earnhardt Jr was out of a car with his concussion but he still went around doing just about anything else he wanted to do before he was cleared to drive again.

Give me a break, you mean mommy is interfering in Patty's ball game. What a puss. "Mommy mommy they hit me in the head on purpose." Funny!

and yet he never got a concussion. It was a brachial "stun". He starts on Sunday 100%. Plus he's tougher than you geriatric fucktards who break a bone every time you get out of bed. Weird.

Defenses have figured Mahomes out. He better get used to getting hit. It's a shame to have all that money and no health to enjoy it. His brain is going to be like swiss cheese by the time he retires.

^^and yet they haven't as he has just successfully lead his team to three straight AFC Championships, and led his team to a 14-1 record this year. Huh. Weird.
