There have been some terrible opinions on sports debate shows over the years but Colin Cowherd’s Patrick Mahomes take on Tuesday’s edition of “The Herd” might be the dumbest hot take of all-time.
Mahomes is still currently in the concussion protocol and it’s still unclear if he’ll be cleared to play on Sunday.
Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes cleared certain steps Monday, “some big steps”, but he remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol with what is considered a concussion and it’s too early to say that he definitely will play in Sunday’s conference championship vs. the Bills, per sources.

During his show on Tuesday, Cowherd bizarrely suggested that the NFL postpone Chiefs-Bills game on Sunday until Mahomes was healthy enough to play.
Oh my……. Colin Cowherd believes the NFL should delay Sunday’s AFC Championship Game until Patrick Mahomes is cleared to play. pic.twitter.com/TUb0gWe7T1

We want Mahomes vs Josh Allen, I think that’s reasonable. I’m sitting here this morning thinking if I’m the NFL, Patrick Mahomes is going through the protocol, I find a day Patrick Mahomes can play and that’s when we’ll play. Why not?
Cowherd got immediately roasted by the NFL fans over his terrible take.

The 2008 season should have been postponed until Tom Brady’s ACL was back at full strength. https://t.co/yoZvz2Smre

"…WHY NOT!" We missing these takes guys? I didn't think so. Instead, I get to talk about Purdue, the B1G, and our local high school teams. Much better way to spend air time don't you think? https://t.co/8w8doddEHz

Cowherd just says stupid stuff to get attention. No way he believes half of what comes out of his mouth on air. https://t.co/d4CledgNfK
