Cris Collinsworth told his Twitter haters he’s capable of talking about non-Patrick Mahomes players

Patrick Mahomes is the NFL’s best player. Heck, when all is said and done, he might be known as the best player in NFL history. Naturally, when he plays in a night game, announcers like Cris Collinsworth are going to focus on his wizardry. However, for some, there’s a reasonable limit on gushing about Mahomes compared to other players involved in the game.

Even Collinsworth himself seems to understand this.

Before the Kansas City Chiefs squared off against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, Mike Tirico asked Collinsworth to talk about Kansas City’s budding elite defense. Collinsworth hilariously offered up a disclaimer that he can, in fact, talk about non-Mahomes players and that he’s seen the tweets criticizing him for this.

The self-awareness levels are off the charts:

Kudos to Collinsworth for the great sense of humor. I can’t imagine he’ll keep his focus off him for long, given how good Mahomes is.
