It’s Super Bowl Sunday and the Kansas City Chiefs are playing in the game for the second year in a row. Wow, those are words I never thought I’d type or say out loud. While I’m waiting for the game to start I thought I’d do a Super Bowl edition of “From The Couch.” Enjoy!
“But, man. What’s crazy is, that Pat, he’s been on a roll. What’s crazy is, I haven’t seen Pat throw dots like this at practice. Like he’s been throwing crazy dots. Like he usually throws dots, but the dots he’s been throwing lately have been crazy. I ain’t even gonna cap. I mean, I’m pretty fired up. Wait and see, I’ve got to rub my hands together. I’m excited about that.”…Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, February 4th, 2021
JM: These comments would indicate we’re going to see quite a show from Patrick Mahomes today. Perfect practice makes perfect, so if Mahomes is throwing “dots” in practice, we’ll probably see that in the game. I ain’t even gonna cap.
“Oh, I’m taking me every day of the week. I’ll take me over anybody. Tyreek is unbelievable, super quick, unbelievable talent. But if we’re talking about a race, I’ve got all the confidence in myself going up against anybody.”…Buccaneers receiver Scotty Miller, January 27th, 2021
JM: I’m not sure anyone is faster than Tyreek Hill. Patrick Mahomes disagrees with Miller….
“It’s an interesting take, man. You’ve gotta have confidence in yourself, though, I’ll give him that. He is a fast dude, he is a great receiver, but I like my guy vs. anybody.”…Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, January 27th, 2021
JM: Maybe Miller and Hill can race at halftime. Or after the game. That would be fun!
“I think we’re as ready as we’ve ever been this week.”…Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, February 5th, 2021
JM: The Chiefs sound like a confident bunch going into this game.
“I want to retire with like six or seven rings.”…Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, February 1st, 2021
JM: If you were wondering if the Chiefs will be happy with two rings, it appears that they will not be.
Not everybody is impressed with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. “Random Twitter Guy” is plenty skeptical. Read on for a few examples….
JM: Brady did it with no weapons? He may not have had Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, but he’s always had some good to great defenses that helped him tremendously.
JM: This one doesn’t even deserve a response.
JM: This guy just mentioned Patrick Mahomes in the same sentence as Joe Flacco. And you wonder why many people choose to stay off of Twitter?
JM: The Mahomes hate is strong in some people. It’ll probably get worse if the Chiefs win the game today. The more he wins, the more people around the country will hate him. In Kansas City, the more he wins the more people will love him. My advice is to ignore the haters and enjoy watching this generational talent and this great Chiefs team. It’s a lot of fun to be a fan of the best team in the league!
Enjoy the game today. I think the Chiefs are going to win big. I’ll predict 42-20. What’s your prediction?
