A truly wild story came out about Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor today. After coming out and warming up for their game on Sunday against the Chiefs, Taylor did not start the game. Rookie Justin Herbert made his NFL debut against the defending Super Bowl champions. This absence was simply not explained, only with the Chargers releasing an injury report stating Taylor had a chest injury.
Well…today we found out exactly what went down:
This is point blank ridiculous. A real stab in the heart. How does this team doctor implant himself into the Chargers staff, insert his medical “skills,” and almost kill the team’s starting quarterback?!
This doctor seems like a real prick. He needled his way into the position, had his shot, and administered a total screw up into Taylor’s lung. His forced administration of medical malfeasance can not stand, the team must interject.
A real skin crawling, forced issue for the Chargers and NFL. I truly hope this issue isn’t pushed aside, and that it causes all of us to shoot up and realize the importance of legitimate medical professionals to ensure the safety of our athletes. Feel better, Tyrod, and don’t be afraid to inject yourself into righting this wrong.
In today’s “embrace debate” culture we live in, there’s hardly anything we can all universally agree on. One of those few things is this: Patrick Mahomes is good at football. Can we agree?
In his first two seasons in the NFL, he’s racked up an regular season MVP and and a Super Bowl win (while also being the Super Bowl MVP). He parlayed that into a nice little contract for half a billion dollars. Not too bad for a 24 year old.
Let’s look at the numbers from Mahomes two full seasons at Texas Tech (per Sports Reference):
Now, let’s check out his first two years as the starting QB for the Chiefs (per Sports Reference):
So, we’re looking at 163 touchdowns, 47 interceptions, and over 20,664 yards in the previous FOUR seasons. For all of you math majors out there, this is what we’re looking at average-wise for Patty Mahomes:
TD: 41 INT: 12 YDs: 5,166
Final chart here, let’s get an idea of the average season for an NFL quarterback the past 10 years (per Pro Football Reference):
You’re reading that right, Patrick Mahomes’ average season the past four season is 15 touchdowns, 1 INT, and 1265 yards better than the highest (by average) NFL season in the past 10 years. Simply mind blowing.
Therefore, with all of the aformentioned research and analytics; we are here to say…Patrick Mahomes is good at football.
