Brett Favre on Patrick Mahomes concussion: “This is a test for the NFL”

Divisional Round - Cleveland Browns v Kansas City Chiefs

Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre has some advice for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who suffered a concussion on Sunday.

Be careful.

Favre realizes that Mahomes will want to play. Favre spent almost all of his career in an era before the NFL took concussions seriously. For him, whether to play or not play due to a head injury was never a question. Now, Favre preaches caution for football players.

“I played 321 straight games, it kind of goes against everything I stood for when I played,” Favre told TMZ.com. “But you’ve gotta be smart. You’ve gotta be smart. I was never faced with the decision that he potentially will face this week. And ultimately the decision may fall on the doctors. And if they choose that he doesn’t play, then it’s the right move, because of the long-term damage.”

Essentially, the doctors may need to protect Mahomes from himself.

“When you’re in the moment, and you’re young, you’re bulletproof, man,” Favre said. “But I’m 51 years old, and I’m wondering what tomorrow will bring, because of concussions more than anything.”

The focus on concussions has subsided in recent years, now that everyone knows the risks — and now that extremely few pro football players choose to not play pro football over concussion. Regardless, the league has specific rules regarding the ability of a player to return after suffering a concussion. Will Mahomes be able to return after only seven days?

“This is a test for the NFL, right now,” Favre said. “To see a star player in a crucial, crucial game, what will happen with their decision. . . . The protocol’s in place. Let’s see if they follow it.”

It wouldn’t have been an issue in Favre’s time. Chiefs coach Andy Reid acknowledged that on Monday, when addressing the situation with reporters.

“There was a chance back in the day that Patrick comes back in [the game],” Reid said. “You saw him run up the tunnel. By the time he got to that point, he was feeling pretty good. But there’s a certain protocol you have to follow and that takes it out of the trainer’s hand and the player’s hand and the doctor’s hand.”

But there’s still influence that the player can exert over the process.

“Just say he has a headache on Friday, but [the] previous three or four days he’s fine,” Favre said regarding Mahomes. “Is he gonna tell them? I doubt it. He wants to play. . . . For years up until 10 years ago there was no protocol in place, and once you felt better — which could be three or four hours — you were back out playing. He will want to play.”

He definitely will want to play. The team will want him to play. That’s why, in 2009, the NFL took the decision out of the hands of team doctors (who at times were inclined to clear a player to play in order to continue to be the team’s doctor).

In this specific case, the league will want Mahomes to play. The question becomes whether that will impact in any way the judgment exercised by the neurologist who is independent of the team but not of the league.

  1. Mahommes didn’t look good getting up off the ground. He looked like he wasn’t there. I can’t see how he could possibly play this week or possibly in the SB if KC wins.

  2. 0% chance he sits out. League has never said he officially has a concussion and they will clear him.

  3. Why – did all of the other conscussed players that went through protocol and return for the next sunday not count and this will be the first one?

  4. No matter the circumstances of a player has a concussion they should be forced to miss the next game at the very least for this very reason. After the first one, the rest come easier. You think the Bills aren’t going to put a little something extra on those hits if he plays?

  5. It’s pretty simple if the Chiefs truly care about their 1/2 billion dollar investment he sits. If all they care about is winning he plays. It’s the same for every team in the league in this situation.

  6. It’s in the Chief’s and the NFL’s long term best interest to only have Mahomes play if he is healthy. I hope they realise that.

  7. If anyone thinks Mahomes is not playing, I’ll have what you’re on. The NFL will NOT be having him sit out. No matter what. No. Matter. What. What they do when he’s punch-drunk on the first hard hit is another story altogether.

  8. The NFL “Brain Trust” has very little credibility these days. I would be very surprised if the league neurologist paints anything but a rosy picture for Mahommes complete recovery in 1 week…

    Was he even concussed? Some are saying it was a nerve thing.

    **************************************************************
    This exactly is the problem here. Totally bogus narrative (likely created by a Chiefs Marketing exec) that maybe he was “choked out” and it was NOT a concussion.
    If you watched that play and the fact he needed to be helped to his feet, and his eyes, you could see VERY CLEARLY he was concussed.

    For Andy Reid to say “He passed all the deals” is not only likely misleading, it’s probably an outright lie. If he HAD, then he would have been back on the field.

    I guarantee that Mahomes will magically be “good to go” after “clearing the protocol” as nobody wants an SB without him.

    And if that happens it will show the COMPLETE hypocrisy of the NFL protocol. Nobody recovers from being almost out on their feet from a concussion in 1 week. Even if he “feels OK” the risk is still there, and if it were any OTHER QB in any OTHER regular season game, he’d be out for at LEAST two weeks.

    (See Andy Dalton)

  10. Maybe he will sit…but not for the concussion, but for his toe ( turf or otherwise)…

  11. Man…if they let him play, and he suffers another concussion??
    Is there anyone that doesn’t believe the officials will be briefed before the game?
    They will have the whistle in their mouths, and one hand on their flag when a rusher is 6 feet from Mahomes. The public relations nightmare of Mahomes getting hurt would be without equal.

  12. Seriously who is listening to pill popping womanizing Brett Farve on anything? This year he has ran his mouth way to much. Smart fans don’t care what he thinks. He ruined his chance to matter by sending junk pictures to everyone who cared to look and them that didn’t.

  13. Boy oh boy, this will be interesting. It isn’t a reach to be able to argue both sides of the decision if Mahomes plays.

  14. All the “fans” pretending to care are the same ones clamoring for old school football.

  15. If they follow the protocol then the decision isn’t in the hands of Mahomes or the team, but the doctors. It sure seems like him coming back this weekend would be off-protocol – if he has a concussion.

  16. The NFL is about to give Mahomes the “Patrick Rate” on his concussion.
    He’s gonna sail through the protoco’lol’!

    That PR team at NFL headquarters is gonna have some work ahead of them.
    “JUST SPIN, BABY!”

  17. the reason Mahomes didnt come back on the field is because its mandatory when you are showing visible dizziness and being unstable, you HAVE to sit out the rest of the game to get checked out. Thats why he didnt come back in.

    The reason Reid said what he said was because he most likely DID NOT HAVE a concussion but because of the dizziness, neck trauma, hes in the protocol.
    Friday he will most likely be cleared to play because he had a pinched nerve or got choked out or whatever.
    No concussion people, Reid said it after the game but then stopped saying because of league rules of the protocol, hes most likely playing and hes fine

  18. Mahomey looked bad when trying to get up, very dazed. BUT, look at the play over and over, he never really took any sort of direct shot to the head. It was more like his head got yanked down and pulled/pinched a nerve of some sort. That said, no matter what it looked like to someone sitting on the couch, that isn’t a measure of severity. You can pop a guy in the temple just right and they’d be out cold without some sort of massive trauma. Quit trying to judge how bad it was or wasn’t from the way he got up.

  19. First and foremost, none of us really know what happened to Mahomes on that play. Maybe it was a concussion, plain and simple. Maybe something else. I watched the replay several times trying to understand what kind of impact happened. Best I can see it may have been some kind of impact to the chin (either directly or via a sudden wrenching of the chin strap), which can potentially concuss.

    But unless we are examining him ourselves, or see the specific analysis of the neurologist, we’re not really qualified to judge.

  20. Social media was chiming in on the “choked out” narrative, minutes after the play. Don’t act like this is some Chief’s marketing ploy. His helmet was barely touched, contact or by the ground. But his neck was bent around the guys forearm on the tackle. There’s a large vein that runs there in case you’re not aware, so it’s a plausible reaction to think he was “choked out”. But being that it was for less than 1/2 a second creates some question to if “choked out” was even possible. But add 450 pounds of force to the equation and anything is possible.

  21. Patrick Mahomes could have the most symptomatic case of COVID-19 and undeniable concussion symptoms, on Sunday morning, and will still be out there with no controversy whatsoever.

  22. The NFL doesn’t care about head injuries and concussions, they just care about the optics. That’s why Seattle was able to knock out the opposing quarterback, Jamal Adams this year, JaDaveon Clowney last year, with no repercussions two years in a row. Why KC forced a fumble with a helmet to helmet hit in the divisional round this year with no penalty flag. The NFL doesn’t want to see Buffalo play against Chad Henne, so as long as Mahommes can walk he will play this weekend.

  23. In our conspiracy based society, the NFL is in a no-win situation. If he is cleared, the masses are going to all claim that the NFL did something underhanded. If he isn’t cleared, they will find a different conspiracy to spread.

  24. Stop the narrative that he clearly had a concussion because he was disoriented. That symptom is not exclusive to concussions. His head was not hit hard. Can you have non contact concussions? Yes, but they’re car accident level whiplash which didn’t happen here either. What DID happen is that his neck was turned awkwardly which likely resulted in a pinched nerve or blood vessel which can ALSO cause disorientation.

    He’s in the concussion protocol but only the media has actually diagnosed a concussion. I’ll wait to hear from a doctor but my eyes tell me this was not a concussion.

    Let’s stay open to that possibility before we all scream hypocrisy.

  25. The bills are in a no lose situation here, assuming he plays. They are expected to lose anyways. I wan him to play, If they lose, ok, it’s expected but if they win, they shock the world.
    The pressure really is on KC.

    However if he doesn’t play, they bills absolutely have to win against henne.

    But regardless if this game, qbs like he and Allen are fun to watch and I want them around for years and years

  26. Anyone who watched Favre play saw him get whacked, spit up blood, get concussed and go right back into the game. Multiple times.

    It is true the protocols were not in place when he played, but for him to suddenly be criticizing others for being willing to play when injured seems hypocritical.

    Although the points he makes are valid, he is not a person with credibility to speak out on this.

    Since the concussion protocol takes the decision away from the coaches, the hope is the medical people will make the appropriate call.

  27. This will be deleted because it will get a lot of thumbs down, but Favre is not a person who’s advice you want to follow.

  28. It’s the Chiefs, they’ll get a pass. The league turns a blind eye for them. Look at fans on Sunday doing tomahawk chop and chant. No name change?

  29. The Pack have a guy who has missed the last three games with a concussion and one week they didnt play so how does the QB all of a sudden in a few days bounce right back.
    I actually think they could win without him, this team is just dripping in talent on both sides the ball. The defense kicked the Browns arse when they needed too.
    All I know is once you get a concussion of significance, they come easier after that to the point they can ruin career depending on what position you play in sports.

    The crown of his helmet went straight into the ground, what are you talking about??

  31. Great to have all these doctors posting here with the diagnosis. Word is by actual doctors he did not have a concussion. There are lots of reasons someone can be out of it and whoozy. It is not possible to just say, yes look hes out of it thats a concussion! A full examination needs to be completed. Current word is it was some kind of nerve injury, which may actually be worse than a concussion.

  32. No, the real test for the NFL is changing head to head hits that are not called as penalties to be eligible for video review. If the NFL had guts, they would suspend Sorensen of KC for his blatant head to head hit on Rashard Higgins.

  33. Everyone talking about the lack of any contact to his head needs to stop thinking that way. It’s about the brain smashing against the inside of the skull. Whiplash can just as easily cause a concussion.

    Ask a neurologist about recovery from a TBI, and the answer will likely include two things. 1) Everybody is different, and 2) There is so much about the brain we don’t know.

    Don’t make assumptions or judgments.

  34. The concussion protocal for NFL players is a good thing to have but what about boxers and mma fighters who wear no head protection and are getting hit in the head with a fist all fight long not just one time like football players.are their skulls harder? I know the brain moves in the skull when tagged with a hard right hook.

  35. Two things. One, the chiefs, the league, they should do the right thing when it comes to his health. Two, I don’t think Mahommes being kept out would be bad for the league. Either the chiefs make it anyway, or they have a second super star in Allen to promote even further. Mahommes is young and the chiefs window is big so it’s really just about doing the right thing. Or it should be.

    ——————————————————-
    Come on, we all know the conspiracy will be that the NFL wants the Bills in the SB. Then competing conspiracies as to whether they want the Bucs or the Packers to play them.

  37. Favre is completely right. As much as I would love to see Mahomes play on Sunday, it’s just too risky. The protocol is there to protect everybody. You shouldn’t be able to pick and choose who to apply it to. But sadly, money talks…

  38. There is no way the nfl doesn’t clear the young star QB who is a defending champion to play against the up and coming young star qb of a resurgent team.

    This is the marquee match-up of the season , and potentially a preview of the battle for the afc for the next decade. There is no way the NFL sits Mahomes.

    Frankly – if the nfl wanted to REALLY show that they are taking it seriously, or at least look that way they could do it easily- make a policy that any player who gets concussed misses the next week automatically and then are evaluated regardless if playoffs or regular season. If a flagged hit caused the concussion- that player is suspended for the entire time the concussed player is out + one additional week. But, that makes too much sense so it will never happen.

  39. He was actually, not on purpose, choked out for 4.7 seconds. The tacklers arm was putting solid pressure on one of the primary veins which caused him to be light headed. No, I’m not an medical expert but really examine the replay, that is what I believe happened since he seemed much better in short order. If it was concussion, he will still play. There is a better chance that Trump and Biden will become best friends than Patrick not playing Sunday.

  40. Hopefully he plays….could have been on his way to his third SB win had it not been for Dee Ford lining up an inch offsides. ‘Game of inches’!!!!

  41. I train Brazilian jiu-jitsu. There is a similar choke called a “bow and arrow” choke. It’s basically the same as what happened to Mahomes. It’s a blood choke that stops flow to the brain, making you pass out. It can happen within 1-2 secs if it’s tight enough. He almost went out, came back but wasn’t fully recovered before he tried to stand up.

    He passed every test in the locker room. The footage doesn’t show a hit to the head. I’m convinced that’s what happened.

  42. It wasn’t the impact. The tackler had him in a strangle hold. Check the forearm across the windpipe. That likely accounts for the dizziness.

  43. What’s wrong with chiefs or the tomahawk chop? Are you familiar with CEO, or that the name was from the mayor of KC at the time who was referred to as “Chief”? How does a chant with an arm motion offend anyone? It’s a cheer, a way for fans to celebrate together, go try to cancel something that matters.. Arsenial Hall must’ve driven you crazy, he pumped his shoulder and arm repeatedly yelling “hoo-hoo-hoo”(not real sure in the spelling though).. I’m sure that offended someone, somewhere, by applying some nonsense that’s not based in reality.

  44. 90% of the people with an opinion on this issue are basing their stance on who they are rooting for. If this is a back up defensive end no one cares.

  45. We have not heard that he did not suffer a concussion which, to me, means that he did. I think I read where there was 1 player who played the next week after a concussion. With that, I seriously doubt that Mahomes will play. IDT the KC team neurologist will clear him; if he/she does, then the independent MD makes the call. I believe we will know before Friday.

  46. Whoa, hold up. Lemme see if I got this straight. So the chop in Arrowhead is an offensive appropriation of Native American culture, but the Skol (correctly spelled skål) chant at U.S. bank isn’t an offensive appropriation of Danish culture? Either that or, wait for it, neither are offensive. To sane people

  47. I read somewhere that Patrick didn’t have a concussion, but a nerve issue in his neck. I dunno, I guess we will find out eventually.

  48. It’s been reported by multiple reliable sources that Mahomes did not suffer from a concussion. If you watch the game, his head never touches the turf nor does the defender ever strike a blow to Mahomes helmet or head.

  49. If you watched that play and the fact he needed to be helped to his feet, and his eyes, you could see VERY CLEARLY he was concussed.
    ———————————————————————–
    Exactly which replay were you watching that you could VERY CLEARY see “his eyes”? Because I have watched it more times than you can count and there is NEVER a shot of his eyes.

    —————

    I did watch. Again, regardless of this particular circumstance: You do NOT need to hit your head to get a concussion

  51. He wasn’t concussed, there was no blow to the head. His neck got hit and he blacked out, big difference.

  52. You don’t have to hit your head to have a concussion. Any motion that slams your brain against the inside of your skull can do it. This is from UWHealth in Madison, WI.

    “Concussion refers to a mild traumatic injury to the brain without an associated structural abnormality such as bleeding. It may occur with or without loss of consciousness. While concussions can occur from direct impact, many occur without any contact to the head. A sudden abrupt stop, such as a fall to the ground or two players running directly into one another without hitting heads, can cause a concussion.”

  53. People here talking about concussions without even knowing what a fencing response is (which Mahomes clearly displayed) and what causes it

  54. I think it’s safe to the NFL is going to fail this test, as it has with so many others issues.

  55. I’ve got mixed feelings on this. I tend to think that somehow the NFL will get Mahomes to pass all the protocols in time to play because it’s a big game & he’a marquee player.
    On the other hand, the NFL did force the Broncos to play without a QB on their roster at all due to the virus. The circumstances and the stakes were vastly different.
    Will be surprised and disappointed if Mahomes plays.

  56. sportsfan7 says: “It is true the protocols were not in place when he played, but for him to suddenly be criticizing others for being willing to play when injured seems hypocritical.

    Although the points he makes are valid, he is not a person with credibility to speak out on this.”
    ————————

    Just stop. Science and knowledge have changed.

    We went skiing without helmets 30-40 years ago. Seatbelts were optional for us kids in the backseat. But don’t think for a second that I will let my kids do that today with what we know now.

  57. Despite all the alleged concussion protocols, most fans don’t trust the team or NFL to do what’s right when it comes to star players. Mahomes is arguably the top star in the league and they don’t want to lose their cash cow. He could be spouting concussion related nonsense or forgetting everything and they’ll still put him out there saying he “passed” all medical exams

  58. The arm-chair doctors on this thread are amazing! Nobody is making mention of the play in the 2nd quarter where he banged his head on the turf after a hit, but “bounced back up” and kept playing. But when you have multiple traumatic injuries to the head in a short period of time, the resulting effect is much worse. NFL is on clown mode if they rush him through the protocol. He is the future of the league.

  59. Translation… “Don’t play because my Packers may have to play you and we won’t win”

  60. Mahomes won’t be making the call. If the doctors clear him to play, he’s not going to go against their advice. He has no choice. Favre played before the long term health effects were clearly understood, just as many older Americans used to smoke cigarettes before the long term effects of smoking were well known. Today, people are carefree about the coronavirus because so many people are unaware of the long term effects from that. We can always look back 20 years and wonder why we didn’t know, or why nobody told us. Sometimes we really don’t want to know, and sometimes nobody is telling us. I mean, if we understood the long term effects of this virus, you wouldn’t have to beg people to wear masks, but nobody is talking about it. Do they just not know, or are they trying to cover something up? It’s always easy to point the finger at others, while we do the same exact thing. Look in the mirror once in a while.

    Agreed – our Judo community all seem to concur as submissions are how we finish off the opponents if ippon is not achieved via a throw. It feels like a hyperventilating sensation when you stand up too quick.

  62. Will he play? Almost definitely. Will he truly clear the protocol? I think he will.

    Is the protocol sufficient overall? I’m no doctor, but I don’t think it is. If they are serious about head injuries, they need some hard timelines on reentering. First concussion could be 1 week out (from the injury), potentially eligible to return on the next game day if the protocol is passed (so Mahomes would likely be good). Second concussion in a season=mandatory 4 weeks out and need to pass protocol to return. 3rd concussion in a season and you’re shut down for the year and must pass rigorous examination to return the following year. They might even consider a 12 month rolling period where if you get so many during it, you’re out for at least the rest of the season. Mandatory retirement after X numbers seems harsh, but they could always strongly recommend.

  63. We all saw that he was groggy and almost fell trying to get up. He will be playing the NFL doesnt care about that its just a marketing thing just like it takes all of us. Money solves a lot of issues.

  64. He will pass the protocol and there will be very little said about it after the game. That process will continue until something drastic happens. Hope that isn’t this time.

  65. The financial state of the League will compell league officials to strongly encourage KC to play Mahomes. The Super Bowl will be a major source of revenue in a cash-strapped year, and sponsors will pay record ad money for a potential Mahomes vs Brady/Rodgers Super Bowl. Look for KC to play Mahomes in the 1st half against Buffalo, attempt to get out to a sizable lead, and let the backup hold on for the Super Bowl berth. By limiting Mahomes to short drops and quick passes, KC can protect their QB from a disastrous 2nd concussion.

    Also, watch for refs to help bring the most marketable pairing, Brady vs Mahomes, to the big dance. One or two key controversial calls at critical moments can be the difference in a close game.

  66. Dr OLDGROUCH here and I read somewhere something that said what I already believe is undisputedly right, no matter what them neurologist say, I know better. real science is what suits my goals, fake science is what deprives me of what I want right now.

  67. He doesnt have a concussion! He did not take any kind of blow to his head. The way he was taken down caused the blood to be cut off from his brain causing him to blackout. Now I know a lot of you will believe whatever you want because that’s how our country is these days. Patrick is such an awesome person but because the media spent two years gushing over him people outside of KC now root for his downfall. It’s sad but that’s where we are at.

  68. AFC championship game = Mahomes cleared
    If it was week 4 Mahomes would be missing a week. Although the hit did not look that bad it was more of a mma choke out

  69. The NFL needs to shut Mahomes down until the Super Bowl if they’re really serious about concussions.

  70. From the replay, it doesnt look like Mahomes helmet hit the ground. Its pretty scary that Mahomes got a concussion without a violent hit to the head. It could have been much worse if the ground caused his helmet to stop.

  71. 49ersam says: “The financial state of the League will compell league officials to strongly encourage KC to play Mahomes. The Super Bowl will be a major source of revenue in a cash-strapped year, and sponsors will pay record ad money for a potential Mahomes vs Brady/Rodgers Super Bowl.”
    ———————-

    You do know they sold out ad rates MONTHS ago, right? Every second of the Super Bowl broadcast has already been paid for well in advance.

  72. We all saw Mahomes collapse on the field. There’s no way he’s not concussed. If he gets cleared it’s for money reasons only, and just proves, when the chips are down, the NFL doesn’t care one bit about it’s players.

    ———————————————————
    To you and the rest of the know-it-alls on this site: They only put you into the concussion protocol if, you know, you have a concussion. So stop with all the “But this or that didn’t happen”, if he’s in the concussion protocol it’s because he has a concussion.

  74. FENCING PEOPLE. FENCING. Mahomes’ free limbs were locked straight. We’ve all seen this. This means head trauma. He was blacked out. He could not stand up on his own. His head was on a swivel because he did not know where to go or what to do. His forehead hit the ground pretty hard. A one week turnaround would usually seem highly unlikely. But consider all the stakes & money involved & what we get is a league & a franchise that needs this player active against Buffalo. Regular season? Not so much. Buffalo will not be allowed within 6 feet of this guy & the referees will send an early message likely with multiple ticky-tack flags to not touch him.

  75. Imagine it was the UFC & Mahomes was laying on the mat unconscious with his limbs sticking straight out & locked. The referee then jumps in & stops the fight. BLACKED OUT. HEAD TRAUMA. CONCUSSION. It is what it is. As Alfred said in The Dark Knight Rises……”JUST LET THE TRUTH HAVE IT’S DAY”

    Not necessarily. It can happen from other things besides just a concussion.

  77. As someone that has had multiple concussions in his life from both Football and other things try being an epileptic that has no aura when and where your going to have a Massive Seizure that will put you on the ground. They diagnosed him with a concussion and the technology to do so is way better than it was 10 years ago. Also if the NFL allows him to play when he is not fully healed and he has another in the AFC championship game and it is worse than the 1st one heaven help the NFL then. Why Mahome is the MVP of last years Super Bowel and season. The doctors better get this one right. To many concussions lead to things like Dementia just ask Jim McMahan CTE is well documented. I personally developed epilepsy and Parkinson’s due to all my concussions.

    ________________________________________________

    This is completely false.

    His facemask contacted the ball which was on the ground, but the crown of helmet never touched the ground. Watch the replays.
