The NFL is a ‘what have you done for me lately’ league, but this is taking it way too far.
Patrick Mahomes fell in last season’s Super Bowl, and seems to not be the same player since. The Chiefs QB leads the league in interceptions and finds his team in third place in the division, up from last place a week ago.
Despite Mahomes being on track to literally be the greatest QB of all-time apparently Chiefs fans aren’t satisfied and are looking for a change.
One Chiefs fan even went as far as the create a Change.org petition in home of the team benching Mahomes in favor of backup Chad Henne. Yes, Chad Henne.
The petition reads –
The Kansas City Chiefs are 3-4 starting out the 2021 NFL season. This is the worst start that the Chiefs have had in their first 7 games since 2015 in which they went 1-6. Are we going to put all of the blame on Patrick Mahomes? Absolutely.
Through their first 7 games of this season Mahomes has 2093 passing yards and 18 passing touchdowns which isn’t bad, however his 9 interceptions are making him an average quarterback. How can you justify paying an average quarterback $500 million? He is not only stealing money from the Kansas City Chiefs organization, or stealing playing time from the greatest quarterback in the league; Chad Henne, but he is also stealing the dignity from the good people of Kansas City. Just the other week two Chiefs superfans were banned from Arrowhead Stadium for having a heated brawl in the stadium. We have to end this madness.
“What is the solution?” You might ask. The only solution that I see fit is to bench Patrick Mahomes. It’s time to look to the future: Chad Henne. He is more than able and can bring this team back to glory.
We need your help. Sign this petition to help get the attention of the Chiefs organization. We will not be silent. We will not stop until we see action.
Perhaps Hennething is possible.
