[VIDEO] Who’s more likely to win 2020 MVP: Lamar or Mahomes? | NFL.com
NFL Network’s Steve Mariucci and LaDainian Tomlinson discuss who is more likely to win 2020 MVP between Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
This is like Superman (Mahomes) vs. Spider-Man (Jackson). Everyone really wants to find reasons to pick Spider-Man. He’s younger and cooler! He’s more fun to watch! He’s a plucky underdog! And if an army of evil robots were marching toward your town, who would it be a job for? You know it. At the end of the day, Spider-Man can bounce around slinging all the webs he wants. If Superman decides he wants to throw him into the sun, it’s over.
“There is nobody out in front right now. I like them both,” Toub said. “They’ve both got really strong legs, really powerful legs. They consistently hit over 5.0 (seconds) hang times, which is impressive. Tommy is a little more clean in his technique as far as consistency, whereas Tyler is a little more erratic. But the results are the same. They both bomb the ball.”
The newest pick – “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party)” – makes total sense, as it’s the song Travis Kelce screamed on the stage at the conclusion of the AFC Championship Game. Of course, he made it “You gotta fight for your right to Lombardi” rather than the traditional lyrics. Kelce also screamed this during the Chiefs Championship parade while on stage.

“I’m not sure about Hardman,” Toub said during a Zoom conference on Tuesday. “I don’t want to lose him. I think he’s just scratched the surface as a returner. He hasn’t reached his potential yet. He could be even better. I think he knows that and hopefully, we can keep him in those roles. It’s important. It’s important to get the ball in guys hands that can make plays and he’s one of them.”
“We were really fortunate last year when we got Emmanuel Ogbah. He surfaced in the system, played good football and now he’s at Miami. Emmanuel and I have talked about this a lot and a change of scenery for him was really good. So, I think the hope, certainly, is that maybe Taco can do the same thing,” Spagnuolo said, via the team’s website.
“We work with [General Manager Brett] Veach and if we have two players that are close, we’ll take the guy that has the higher special teams’ grade than the other. All of these guys had good special teams’ grades, so I’m real excited about every one of them,” Toub said. “They’ve all got speed and they’ve all got good height. Clyde’s not the tallest guy in the world, but he’s so elusive, I just picture him playing [personal protector] for us on the punt team where he could get a direct snap and take off and he can do a lot of things in that area. Plus, we’re also going to find out if he can tackle, too. He’s never done it before. We’ve talked a couple times virtually, he’s never done it, but he’s looking forward to it. They’re all excited and I’m excited to have all of them.”
