Being a Lakers fan, the dude was a nightmare. Being a human being, nothing but respect. The man represented his community well.

ANDY SIGN HIM AS A MENTOR. You know Greek freak II & ryan…are close. And Ryan mentored Greek freak II. Keep this bond rolling throughout this football season!!
.
Ryan Kerrigan is done playing, but he loves football too much to leave.
.
Though Kerrigan appears resigned to his decision to retire, he is hardly done with the game. His hope is to parlay his career into one as a coach so he can continue to be a mentor.
.
“I love football too much,” he said. “I just love football too much to not be involved in it in any capacity.”

1) pompano, love the “Non-Chiefs history, thank you – 5 StarZ just for that

2) it’s practice … PRACTICE! 😉

3) (and this is huge) … for years all I’ve seen of Chiefs fans is bashing on other players (ie, players on other teams, more or less because they’re on, you know, other teams) including (specifically) Lamar Jackson

now here we are with our very own Mahomes DEFENDING Jackson (and Murray) … is Mahomes lying? or are we (as fans) hypercritical hypocrites (we claim to love football, but then we badmouth anyone and any team that isn’t our own [see: Raiders)

I dunno, guess I’m jaded from years and years of “FUCK THE RAIDERS” shit, when we all know that as soon as the game ends these guys are all buddy-buddies and best friends, one huge Band of Brothers regardless of team

to be honest, I not only don’t hate Raiders players (why would I?) I don’t even hate Raiders fans (yes they dress up strangely for games, but then so do a whole lot of Chiefs fans, so there’s that) … I wouldn’t even hate Chargers fans, if there were any, and some of my best friends here in Colorado are MAJOR Broncos fans (neither they or myself take it all too seriously)

He is. I don’t understand the love for a QB who isn’t accurate but has great running moves.

As Rip points out, Saint Marty showed us the way. The raiders (never capitalized) are beneath contempt and have earned true, unfettered hatred. The only problem is, they love it so hating them just plays into their hands.
I don’t care. I will hate, HATE them as long as I breathe. All others who are the Chiefs I simply don’t like.
As for Jackson, I read what he said and Mahomes was simply asking why you never hear a white QB described as a “backyard” player. And honestly, I can’t think of any who were/are. Scramblers, mobile, playmaker yes. Backyard, unconventional, no.
And as a homer fan, Jackson and Murray can’t play on the same board as Mahomes, much less the same level.

Scratch “people”, insert “the raiders”.
Or maybe just add “the raiders”. Some days…

Maybe, I don’t follow the nfl or the National talking heads as much as I use too, but I know I’ve heard them use the term “backyard” when talking about Allen and Burrow. Maybe not to the same extent as with Mahomes and Jackson, but to be fair, both Jackson and Mahomes play unconventionally. People being stubborn to change isn’t anything new.

Bret Favre, was labeled a back yard QB I believe..

No, I think the predominate description for him was “Gunslinger”, which has a completely different connotation.
I don’t think Mahomes or I are saying that ONLY black qbs are described that way, but they are more often and in a more derogatory way. The most recent example with Mahomes was not meant to be flattering.
And fuck the raiders

Back yard – gunslinger…. Pretty much the same thing in my opinion. Can someone post his comments for me , maybe I’m missing something. Thought it was just one asshole making said statement…

I really should point out that I don’t believe Mahomes ever said “White”. I think he said “other” and the point was pretty clear to me, but others might read it different.
Backyard is a 9 year old, running in circles waiting for the one guy he can throw to to get to the Buick and turn around.
Gunslinger is take no prisoners, damn the odds, let’s do this.
Very different.

I agree here. Many people threw that gunslinger comment as insult, not a complement. Even when Patrick was coming out, the narrative was he would never be an elite QB only a gunslinger like Brett

True that the comment wasn’t meant to be flattering, but I don’t think it’s a racial thing like some are making it out to be. We take it as a mark of pride that Pat isn’t like the other QBs, but there are many out there that honestly believe that if you aren’t a pocket QB, you aren’t a “real” QB. That mentality will change with more and more QBs mimicking the styles of Mahomes and Allen (I leave Jackson out because he is just a more evolved form of Vick than the next evolution).

I only hate two teams; LV and Denver. LA I just strongly dislike. All others I’m meh about unless they are playing the chiefs. Then they enter the strongly dislike category for the week
