A week ago Tyreek Hill debuted his first podcast named “It Needed To Be Said” and in it he talked about why he moved on from KC and how it all came about. He said he was not happy that he was not used as much as he felt he should have been last year, despite catching 111 passes for over 1,200 yards. He also said something that can be taken so many ways when asked his “Opinion” on who is better his former QB Patrick Mahomes or his current QB Tua Tagovailoa and he said that Mahomes had the stronger arm but as for Tua he was the more accurate QB and that he preferred the accurate ball where he can be hit in stride and take it 70 yards like he did against Buffalo last year.
Hill’s Actual Comment: “Obviously, like I’m gonna go with 15 (Patrick Mahomes) as the strongest arm,” said Hill. “But as far as accuracy-wise, I’m going with Tua (Tagovailoa) all day.”
As a Dolphins fan I see what he was saying and certain numbers actually support what he said…but did he need to actually say it?
He just released his second video “Get It Off Your Chest” and in it he divulged that he received Death Threats because of his comparing Tua to Mahomes, really? That is so crazy but unfortunately it’s a sign of the world we live in and that is why I titled this article Did He Really Need To Say It? Tyreek said in his video that he don’t mind the heat on him he just want people to keep his kids out of it.
It’s obvious that Tyreek wanted to create some controversy on his podcast to generate hits and boy did he accomplish that with his debut video as so many chimed in on it and as expected took his comments in so many directions. (Mostly Negative) Tyreek needs to understand he created this issue and brought attention to himself and he must live with the consequences if you seek attention you will draw it from all sorts of people even the crazy ones.
So be careful what you seek because you might not get what you expect……that needed to be said.

Keep in mind, the intelligence level of your typical athlete. These guys aren’t known for being the brightest people in the world. And unfortunately close to half of the fan base is barely intellectually superior. Even some of the guys who came into the NFL through ivy league schools are dumber than a box of rocks. Do I appreciate that he’s sticking up for Tua? Sure. Is it necessary? No.
