Is Patrick Mahomes The Savior? We do two things on Sunday: worship God and cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs. These have become part of our family’s DNA. There’s nothing better than a good sermon and a Chiefs’ victory. Now THAT is a full day! . Recently, our beloved Chiefs traveled to Denver to face the Broncos for Thursday Night Football. As always, all eyes were on our beloved and endearing quarterback Patrick Mahomes at the goal line. Then it happened. He went to the ground and didn’t get up. . Suddenly an entire season of football without Patrick Mahomes flashed before me. I wondered if all our Super Bowl hopes were fleeting for yet another season. Social media and every sports program of every kind was asking the same questions. Because love him or hate him (if you’re from an opposing team), Patrick Mahomes makes the game of football better. . But Patrick Mahomes is, at the end of the day, just a normal guy who gets to showcase his God-given talents on a big stage. His job (as a self-proclaimed Christ follower) is to reflect God’s glory NOT to be God. He wasn’t made to be the source of our hope, rather the source of our entertainment. This week reminded me that it’s easy to get those confused. . Sports are great. Being devoted fans is fun. They are GOOD things, but they are not ULTIMATE things. But Patrick’s injury has once again reminded of my steadfast, unchanging source of joy. It’s reminded me that football can bring happiness, but it is not the source of our joy! Joy is internal and eternal. Thankfully, it can’t be taken away by an unforeseen injury or a win or a loss. . Are there good things in your life that could become ultimate things? Things that you find yourself putting your hope in rather than in the unchanging love of God?
#casualtyindex through the night games of Week 7: New additions: #chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, #falcons QB Matt Ryan. Welcome back Mitch Trubisky! Still on pace for every QB to miss at least one game. Except for Tom Brady because he lives on vampire blood.
With an embarrassing loss to the #saints, the #bears must re-evaluate their plans for the future. Instant analysis below: Against the #saints, The #bears managed only 252 yards, most of which came in the fourth quarter when the game was out of hand. Of Chicago’s seven running plays, two were fumbles. After a Bye week where this #bears team was supposed to “reset”, Nagy came up with no answers. After the season opening loss to the Green Bay #packers, coach Matt Nagy promised that the atrocious offensive showing poorly reflected the team’s identity. Trubisky called his performance uncharacteristic, but it seems like as the season has progressed, the season opener was a perfect reflection of the 2019 #bears offense. There has been no sign of growth from Trubisky, and little indication he can be the franchise quarterback the Bears hoped when they traded up to take him with the number 2 pick in the 2017 draft. With the invaluable contracts of Eddie Jackson and Tarik Cohen, the #bears can not afford to waste time trying to find a reliable quarterback. In a league where it is impossible to have a productive offense without a run game, Nagy’s play calling has resulted in the #bears organization having less rushing yards than #ravens quarterback Lamer Jackson. Not only this, but Chicago’s schedule gets harder as the season progresses. The #bears still have to play both Los Angeles teams and the Kansas City #chiefs, as well as four NFC North games one against Green Bay and Minnesota, and two against Detroit. With the trade deadline coming up this week, it would not be unexpected if the #bears were to make an attempt to trade for names like Josh Rosen, Cam Newton, or even Gardner Minshew. What do you think the #bears should do going forward?
