Colin Cowherd: “I’m hearing all these different shows saying ‘BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL ABOUT RUSHING PATRICK MAHOMES BACK!’… If Mahomes can, he needs to play against Green Bay. Would you rather have healthy players sitting out games because of 'Load Management', or injured players fighting to get back on the field? I like the NFL over the NBA because of the urgency and the scarcity of games; guys play hurt and fight to get on the field like the rest of us in America who work when we're sick. We gotta pay the bills. Folks, Kansas City needs to get that number two seed. Buffalo has the second best defense in the NFL; you wanna go play at Buffalo?? Wanna play in Baltimore?? You gotta play hurt and win games.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks superstar Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes can’t just dilly dally his rehab back from a dislocated kneecap, as the reigning MVP’s timetable to return from the injury that he suffered on October 14th was originally three weeks.
Colin says the great thing about the NFL that fans love is the short length of the season where EVERY game matters. In sports like baseball and basketball the best players have weeks and months to fully heal themselves. However, in the NFL with only 16 games, players have to get back ASAP or watch their seasons disintegrate before their very eyes.
The Chiefs are currently the number two seed in the top heavy AFC but Colin says they can’t afford to just rest Mahomes another month to make sure he’s 100% while bad weather bullies like Baltimore and Buffalo improve their seeds to potentially host the Chiefs in the AFC playoffs.
