I want the rivalry between QB Jared Goff and QB Patrick Mahomes to be a thing. They’re both young QBs that have the potential to light the league on fire in the coming years. And last night at the ESPYs, their rivalry got a little bit of a attention shined in its direction. The Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs were honored with the Best Game Award at the ESPYs.
My boy Goff and Patrick Mahomes stepped up to the microphone and did some awkward yet charming banter. This speech was obviously written and rehearsed and was wooden because... well, football players are football players and not actors. Were either QBs effective in their effort to play as charismatic on camera? Well, they read their copy and that’s all they really needed to do — mission accomplished if you ask me.
The classic MNF game between the Rams and the Chiefs is already legend, but it’s always nice to get some hardware out of it.
This rivalry could end up being a Super Bowl matchup in the future, so the Rams can at least hang their hat on the fact that they drew first blood.
