  • I don't think Patrick Mahomes will put himself out there to be if he's compromised.

  • I think he understands the magnitude of the game, you know, obviously, is that it's the championship game.

  • But if Patrick Mahomes is out there, I'm assuming that he's 100% ready to go.

  • And when you look at, it's not just Patrick Mahomes.

  • You also got to include the weapons that Patrick Mahomes have.

  • And Dominique knows this is, well, you know.

  • Tyreek Hill is basically unguardable.

  • Travis Kelsey is unguardable.

  • You know you're possibly gonna have clock Edwards the layer out there and your quarterback is really on.

  • Leah's good is the surrounding cast, and when I look at when I look at the Kansas City Chiefs and their surrounding cast, it's probably the best that you have in the National Football League.

  • And we know all the special attributes that Patrick home brings to the table to play, making ability not only from within the pocket but outside the pocket.

  • And when I look at the matchup against the Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Bills defense granted they they have been playing better.

  • But the last time they played, they had over 200 yards Russian.

  • So if you are able to bring that type of Russian attack to the game, Lord knows what Patrick Mahomes gonna be able to add on to that because it's gonna bring a level of balance to that offense.

  • So again, I'm going to say I'm gonna go with Patrick home when he steps on the field.

  • To me, he's the best player on the field.

  • Okay, so I'm not stupid.

  • So I'm not gonna say Patrick Mahomes is gonna have a bad game because that would just be flat stupid, because he doesn't do, especially in these big moments.

  • So I don't think he's gonna play poorly, but I don't think he's gonna have the best weekend.

  • I think that's gonna be Aaron Rodgers because Patrick Mahomes the last time they played the Bills, the bill is kind of contained Patrick Mahomes.

  • They had 200 plus yards rushing because they were playing a softer defense and their defense has gotten better.

  • So I think they try their best to make the Chiefs win with the Russian attack, and the Chiefs have shown they're willing and able to do that so Pat Mahomes will play fine.

  • He may throw for a couple touchdowns a couple 100 yards, but I don't see him having the best weekend for me.

  • That guy's Aaron Rodgers.

  • And I know last time Aaron Rodgers played against Tampa Bay, he had two interceptions and played pretty poorly.

  • They only scored 10 points, but I don't got Aaron Rodgers doing that and back to back weekends.

  • And I know Aaron Rodgers in this moment in that weather in this situation and coming off of which Aaron Rodgers had the best.

  • Q b r in the playoffs so far.

  • Of course, granted, it was one game, but he was playing against the best defense in the league, so he's gonna go from there.

  • To play against the Bucks was a good defense, but they're not as good as the ramps.

  • I think Aaron Rodgers steps up.

  • Patrick Mahomes is gonna go on, is gonna go into a game coming off of the Browns, who were probably the worst defense that was still left, and he has a toe injury and he's coming up of concussion protocol.

  • I'm again.

  • I'm not stupid.

  • I don't think he's gonna play poorly, but I don't think he's gonna have the best weekend.

  • That's a stretch to say that this man coming off the injury is gonna have a better weekend than a quarterback who is healthy is not coming off concussion protocol, has both his toes and came off of a dominating performance against the best defense in the league.

  • I think that Aaron Rodgers, at home in Lambeau in the inclement weather, is gonna show out against the Buccaneers Mawr than Patrick Mahomes is gonna against Leslie Frazier's much improved and pretty pretty did pretty well against them last time of Bills defense.

  • Well, let me, let me say a couple things.

  • Number one.

  • The last time the Bills and the and the Chiefs met that was up in Buffalo.

  • Inclement weather.

  • So I think the stats were skewed because of that.

  • And that's why the Chiefs ran the ball a lot.

  • Mawr, because of the weather conditions now spending spending it forward As far as Aaron Rodgers is concerned, your whole argument is predicated on well, Aaron Rodgers not gonna throw a couple interception.

  • I agree with you on that, but a big, big thing about why the Packers and Aaron Rodgers have been so successful, particularly later in the latter part of season, is because of their Russian attack.

  • They've altered their Russian attack.

  • They become more balanced.

  • Um, they've been they've been averaging, like 160 yards rushing per game, you know, over the last couple months.

  • I mean, that is huge.

  • That's huge and dominant.

  • You know this when you're able to run the football it allowed.

  • When you can get in the 2nd and 5 30 to your whole playbook is open.

  • You know, it puts a lot of stress on your defense.

  • Well, guess what?

  • Tampa Bay does well, actually better than anyone in the National Football League on defense stopping the run.

  • Okay, they did that the last time they played, uh, the Green Bay Packers.

  • And, you know, that was that enabled Tar balls and that defense to be able to throw a lot of exotic looks at Aaron Rodgers.

  • Well, guess what?

  • They still had the number one rush defense in the league, and we saw last week with the Green Bay Packers.

  • The reason they had so much success against the Los Angeles Rams is because they were so balanced they literally had 36 rushes and 36 passes.

  • When you have that type of balance, it's hard to be stopped.

  • I don't see.

  • I don't see the Green Bay Packers having that type of balance.

  • Going up against this Tampa Bay defense is gonna be a lot more pressure on Aaron Rodgers to deliver.

  • The question is, can he handle all the schemes that tar balls going through at him?

  • I'm not.

  • I'm not necessarily sure about that.

  • I mean, that's a good point.

  • Those linebackers, they have their David and White.

  • I think you said earlier on Get up, they might be the best, too, and the best combo in the league, You're right and they have a chance of getting beat of a back, the big guy inside to help slow down that rushing attack.

  • I agree with all of that.

  • It's gonna be much more difficult for them to run the ball.

  • But I do believe that if they're going to blitz Aaron Rodgers, he will make them pay.

  • I think they got away with some and they kind of tricked Aaron Rodgers in the last game and to believe and he was under pressure and moments when he wasn't and he threw some bad interceptions that we don't see out of Aaron Rodgers.

  • But I'm banking on him in this situation because it's in.

  • It's not as if I think that that defense can't slow him.

  • I think they can't.

  • But when you look around the league, who else has other opportunities?

  • Toe have these big games?

  • I think everyone has these limitations, and I think the limitations on Patrick Mahomes health in facing that defense, that has gotten better.

  • Uh, and Leslie Frazier, who seem to be calling almost perfect games right now.

  • That is too much, I think, for Patrick Mahomes toe overcome in part because they are gonna invite them to run the ball.

  • I don't think the same thing is gonna be true.

  • They're gonna invite them to run the ball.

  • They have success doing that.

  • Mahomes is not even gonna be asked to throw the ball nearly as much or Karius much weight as he normally would.

  • Maybe they try to go after him because they think he's injured and he he teaches them a lesson.

  • But I don't see that happening.

  • I don't see Aaron Rodgers being in a situation where if they take the run from.

  • He's not gonna find ways to connect on the pass in that game.

  • We both re watch that game where the Packers played the Buccaneers.

  • It wasn't like people weren't open.

  • It was just Aaron Rodgers making the wrong decisions.

  • There are weaknesses, toe every coverage and every blitz.

  • Aaron Rodgers overthrew some pastor.

  • People open.

  • Aaron Rodgers threw into a squat corner one time against the blitz.

  • These air mistakes that he just tends to not make, and I can't imagine him making them again facing this same defense in the conference championship.

I don't think Patrick Mahomes will put himself out there to be if he's compromised.
