Tyreek Hill was on the receiving end of the internet’s anger when he said a few weeks ago that current quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was a more accurate passer than the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes. Critics and fans alike were baffled as to why Hill said such a thing, but also for a man she didn’t play a single game with.
Launches Star Wideout podcast It Had To Be SaidOn June 10, he gave fans an inside look at his deal with the Miami Dolphins and talked about the bond he’s built with other athletes throughout his career. He recently revealed that he has received death threats since his first podcast aired.
“I have received death threats on every social media account I have” – on the backlash for Tyreek Hill comments
Tyreek Hill, 28, and his co-host, attorney Julius Collins, discussed Dolphins initiator Tua Tagovailoa during their podcast. “He’s the ‘it’ dude, bro. Like what many people don’t know. It’s like – I’m not just sitting here – I’m not sitting here saying this just because he’s my quarterback now!” said Hilal. “I’m not trying to target any more right now. But that’s the deal I’m trying to say, bro.”
“I will go with 15 as the strongest arm” Hill said when asked to compare Patrick Mahomes and Tua. “But for the sake of accuracy, I’ll go with Tua all day.” This statement drew heavy criticism from everyone in the league and fans around the world. Many critics have made their minds to Hill through talk shows. “It’s okay to accept the fact that Patrick Mahomes is the worst brother on the planet right now as a QB. And you’re going to try to tell me that a man you’ve never even played a friendly with is more accurate than Patrick Mahomes. If you’re really serious about this, I’m sorry, I’m going to put this on national television. I’ll say ‘stay away from weeeeeeeeeeed’.” Stephen A. Smith said he beat Hill for the ridiculous comparison.
“Tyreek, you got your money bro,” said Shannon Sharpe. “I don’t know why he felt the need to shoot Andy (Reid), why he needed to shoot Patrick Mahomes. … If you think Tua is as accurate as Patrick Mahomes, you are about to find out what it has been like historically to go from a great player to a very average playmaker.”
in the second part of the series It Had To Be Said Tyreek Hill revealed that he received vulgar messages and even death threats for his comments about Patrick Mahomes. “I have received death threats from every social media account I have” said Hilal. “This is ridiculous. That’s another thing my mom always told me, you never judge a book by its cover. You know, it’s not even finished yet. It’s true. You know? So be patient man. It’s just that a lot of people overreact for no reason.” I am feeling.”
Fans often took their freedom of expression too far by threatening players and their families. Baker Mayfield had to go through the same ordeal when he performed poorly in his Christmas Day game against the Green Bay Packers. Mayfield’s wife, Emily, shared the threats the QB has received since the game. Hill said what he said because he’s a Miami Dolphin now. He can’t get around the league admitting he traded one of the best QBs in the league for a man who hasn’t proven himself yet for money.
In fact, Pat McAfee praised Hill for supporting the quarterback. “I appreciate the fact that it all revolves around knocking Tua down and people stop talking nonsense about Tua, that’s exactly what a wide receiver would do for a quarterback.” said McAfee.
