There’s no doubting that with the advance in technology comes opportunities to sharpen up some otherwise dicey calls in the world of sports during games. That’s the case in the NFL too, and Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a suggestion.

Given all the pileups that happen on goal-to-go situations, the Chiefs signal caller believes a microchip should be put into footballs going forward and that it may only be a matter of time before it becomes a reality.

Via the WHOOP Podcast, Mahomes detailed the issue while providing a resolution for the Chiefs and the other 31 teams in the NFL.

“I’ve always thought the chip in the ball has to happen sometime, where if you cross the line, it just tells you a touchdown. But it’s also the human error thing. It’s kind of like baseball, balls and strikes. It’s just part of the game. The biggest thing to me is when they get in the pile by the end zone, there is literally no way to tell if he’s in the end zone or not. It’s like you said, it’s just whatever they call. … I’m sure it’ll happen soon enough.” Patrick Mahomes on the WHOOP Podcast.

The Chiefs’ franchise pillar makes the comparison to umpires in baseball who seem to be taking more and more heat as time goes on with many clamoring for an automated strike zone to be implemented into MLB.

Mahomes’ idea of the microchip has been brought up before and on the surface, it seems like it certainly wouldn’t do anything outside of help steer calls in the right direction.

Hearing a player with the following and influence that Patrick Mahomes has mention this holds more water than others who would bring the idea to the table. Who knows, maybe the Chiefs QB1 will help set in motion this move for the NFL.
