dul-Rauf refusing to stan

Patrick Mahomes II wants to get out of the huddle without any issues Jonathan Allen Jersey , call the right protections and limit his mistakes, all while leading the Chiefs to a couple of touchdowns when he plays the first quarter of their preseason opener against Houston on Thursday night.

If something doesn’t work according to plan? He’ll be in coach Andy Reid’s ear to stay out there.

“I mean, yes, kind of,” Mahomes said with a grin. “I know he’s going to keep it where he can try to let everyone play and get everyone. But if I don’t score I might say something to him.”

There are a few things to unpack from that statement.

First, the Chiefs’ new starting quarterback has high expectations for himself Jordan Reed Jersey , perhaps even higher than those of a fan base that is already fawning over him. Second, he is secure enough to lobby a coach who’s been at this for two decades to reconsider his plan. And third, he understands his job is to put up points, especially considering the myriad question marks surrounding the defense.

Oh, and fourth: There is a competitive streak in Mahomes that is nearly unrivaled.

“We are going to try to win. That is the first thing coach Reid said when we were game planning for this week is he doesn’t like losing,” Mahomes said. “We’re going to do whatever it takes. I am going to try to encourage those guys and help those guys on the sideline. We have a lot of competitors Authentic Josh Manson Jersey , so hopefully we can win the football game.”

The result doesn’t matter much, of course. It will likely be decided long after the starters exit following the first quarter, and probably after the backups hang up their helmets at halftime.

Still, the Chiefs hope to begin building some momentum for the regular season right away.

“You’re looking for assignment football. You’re looking, when the juices get going, how you handle that Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey ,” Reid said. “You’re in the stadium with the fans there. We’ve had a great turnout here (at camp), but it’s a little different with the lights on and it’s game time.

“It’s one more evaluation period that you have a chance to see these guys in.”

This will be Eric Bieniemy’s debut as offensive coordinator after the longtime running backs coach was promoted to replace current Bears coach Matt Nagy. He has worked closely with Mahomes throughout camp and will be wearing the headset to communicate with him on game day.

More than a week after the NFL clumsily changed its national anthem policy in a way that managed to take a bad situation and make it worse, the NBA won’t be changing its own rules and regulations regarding the anthem.

Via SportsBusiness Daily, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in an annual “state of the league ” press conference that there’s no reason to change the state of the league’s rule that players must stand for the anthem.

“The NFL is in a very different situation than the NBA,” Silver said. “Twenty-five percent of our league is comprised of players who aren鈥檛 American. So it鈥檚 hard to say in the case of the NBA it鈥檚 about patriotism, when a quarter of our players aren鈥檛 even American. But we鈥檝e collectively viewed it as a moment of unity in our arenas.”

That’s kind of a weird explanation Authentic Gustav Nyquist Jersey , frankly. The more accurate truth is that, in the aftermath of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf refusing to stand for the anthem more than 20 years ago, the NBA swooped in and negotiated an agreement with the NBA Players Association to make standing mandatory. End of problem.

Which is precisely what the NFL should have done. But the NFL doesn’t enjoy the kind of relationship with the NFL Players Association that would be conducive to a quick and easy win-win outcome, and the league surely didn’t want to get squeezed into making a concession to players in order to make the problem go away in August 2016.

As a result, the problem lingers. As does the NFL’s reluctance to negotiate the kind of conclusive resolution that would happen if the league and the union would agree that players will stand for the anthem. All because the NFL doesn’t want to give something up to get the outcome it so desperately needs.
