Here’s what I love about football when it is conducted at the highest and purest level. Or maybe, you know, any level.
You can get your ass humbled. No, you will get your ass humbled. That’s a good thing. We all need that. If there is no such thing as defeat, there can be no such thing as victory.
I love Mahomes, I love Andy. I very much admire and respect Chiefs’ DC Steve Spagnuolo and OC Eric Bienemy.
But all four of them got their asses handed to them Sunday at Arrowhead. That’s good for the game. And ultimately it will be good for the Chiefs.
As the wonderful Jim Hanifan once said about the also wonderful Bill Walsh, “Of course I respect Bill Walsh. But, goddammit, it’s not like Bill invented the goddammed forward pass.”
