Tom Brady’s terrifying admission echoes Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ criticism of NFL for upcoming 2023 season

The NFL being roasted by the veteran players is nothing new, with the seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady’s earlier shocking admission and now the Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes criticizing the league being the most recent example.

The NFL declared some changes to their rulebook last week after adjusting their scheduling process for the upcoming season. One of the revised rules included the team’s chance to play up to two Thursday night games after a previous Sunday game on two occasions during the season instead of one game on Thursday night after playing Sunday.

What did Patrick Mahomes say about the NFL’s new rule?

The NFL’s new rule definitely pissed off the Chiefs’ star QB Patrick Mahomes as he took to Twitter to vent his outrage by posting an emoji of someone facepalming. Well, it’s justified as it is already difficult for the football players and their bodies to have one Thursday night game per season.

Roger Goodell couldn’t halt back from responding to one league’s best player’s statement as he immediately responded to it by saying “I don’t think we’re putting Amazon (Thursday Night Football broadcasters) over our players. …The data doesn’t show higher injury rate. I hear from players who also love the 10 days after a Thursday Night game. We have to try to balance all of it.”

Tom Brady took a subtle jab at the league’s rule back then in 2018

Before Mahomes open statement, the NFL legend Tom Brady too took a dig at the league’s changing rules of extending the regular season to 17 matches in 2018 on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“It’s pointless, I thought it was a terrible decision. I think 16 is plenty. And, again, you’re eight games into the year and you’re not halfway through, so that’s kind of a little frustrating aspect. So whatever, I mean, we’ll play it. It’s there” Brady stated.

When asked about the physicality of the game, Brady compared NFL games with a ‘scheduled car crash’ citing “Worse than a car crash, because I was in a car crash and it wasn’t as bad as getting hit in the football field.”

Both Brady and Mahomes are among the most high-profile and successful quarterbacks in the NFL, and their statements highlight the growing concern over the long-term impact of continuously adopting new rules. As the 2023 NFL season approaches, it remains to be seen whether the league will take steps to address these concerns and prioritize the player’s opinions.
