With comments from Tyreek Hill’s Chiefs filling news cycles this week, Patrick Mahomes had a chance to fire back, but he got on the fast track. What should he have said?

Things have taken a turn since Tyreek Hill’s offseason departure from Kansas City that not many expected. hill last comments about the team that gave him a fifth-round chance — and the team he won a Super Bowl with — have recently been blown up in the NFL.

Comments like the Chiefs suppressed Hill’s stats to lower his value, Tua Tagovailoa’s more accurate than Mahomes, and more were made by the former Chief. For what reason? There’s a good chance it was just to build hype for his new podcast, It had to be said, but trying to burn bridges for a podcast sounds superficial.

Mahomes was too posh to say those things in response to Hill’s comments

3. Hill always got the majority of goals in an offensive full of talent

For years, the Chiefs’ offense has been considered one of them, if not the, best offense in the NFL. It’s no secret that Hill played a big part in that success. To try and suggest that a top AFC team battling for a Super Bowl every year would suppress their star-wide receiver’s stats to make them cheaper the following year is absurd. Just looking at Hill’s stats belies that.

2021: 159 goals – 111 receptions – 1,239 yards – 9 touchdowns

The goals and receptions were both career highlights for Hill. Suppress stats or have a career year? The numbers don’t lie. We can go even further back with Mahomes:

2020: 135 goals – 87 receptions – 1,276 yards – 15 touchdowns
2019: 89 goals – 59 receptions – 860 yards – 7 touchdowns (hurt)
2018: 137 goals – 87 receptions – 1,479 yards – 12 touchdowns

The claim that the Chiefs suppressed Hill’s stats can be immediately refuted by looking at the numbers. Hill was a key part of the NFL’s best offense and got more looks than fellow player Travis Kelce.
