Tyreek Hill is generating a lot of buzz this season. But can a receiver lift the MVP trophy? Why is he still not considered a top contender for the award? Former footballer and GM, Michael Lombardi, asked the same question to the NFL on the Pat McAfee Show. The 3-time Super Bowl-winning NFL analyst brought in Christian McCaffrey to build a strong case.

As of Week 14, the Miami Dolphins lead the NFL in passing offense and are one of the two teams averaging over 400 yards per game (along with the Detroit Lions). Hill is having an exceptional season and, if he maintains this level of play, he could be recognized as one of the best wide receivers chosen in the later rounds in recent NFL history. So, why couldn’t he become the MVP this year? Ex-GM Lombardi shared some compelling points explaining why Hill should be a strong MVP candidate this year.

During the latest episode of Pat McAfee’s show, former football player Michael Lombardi shared a few pointers indicating why Tyreek Hill is one of the strong MVP contenders of the league this season. While the conversation began with why Brock Purdy is is being called “Mr. Irrelavant,” Lombardi also emphasised on the fact that “people don’t understand football” really well. The 64-year-old also highlighted Christian McCaffrey’s play, however, stopping fans from voting for him for MVP. Comparing the two, and bringing Brock Purdy in the competition, Lombardi then vouched for Hill, saying, “I don’t know why the two players I don’t understand why they’re not in the MVP conversation were Purdy and Tyreek Hill.

He continued, “I don’t understand how people like Tyreek Hill say “well you got to vote for McCaffrey no no no wait a minute the best offensive player in the game, the guy who tilts the field more than anybody is Tyreek Hill.” Although Lombardi said that he loves McCaffrey, he feels “he’s like a luxury part to a beautiful car…. and he fits perfectly in what they do.” But according to him, Hill “tilts the field like you’re scared to death, you’re breathing, you can’t call cover one your safety, can’t make a mistake, you can’t do anything.

There is no doubt why Hill is being referred to as the “Cheetah,” as his jaw-dropping speed and gameplay have been observed by football enthusiasts during the games. During his rushing attempts, rarely is a player seen blocking him or close to him when he rushes on the gridiron for a touchdown.

Furthermore, before the start of the season, Hill claimed that he was going to get those 2,000 yards. And now, he is living up to his promise.

The season of history for Tyreek Hill!

Tyreek Hill is dominating as the best wide receiver in the NFL this season. He’s leading in receiving yards (1,481) and touchdowns (12), ranking second in receptions (93). His per-game stats are phenomenal, with 123.4 racing yards per game, putting him in an elite category.

If he keeps up with this performance, Hill is on track to make one of the best seasons in the league’s wide receiver history. Only four players (including Wes Chandler, Charley Hennigan, Elroy Hirsch, and Calvin Johnson) in history averaged over 120 yards per game in a season, and Hill is surpassing that. With 17 games, he is likely to break Johnson’s 2012 record and be the first player to reach 2,000 yards.

I understand what it takes to be an athlete and perform at such a high level since I too have tasted small-time success in sports. As an athlete, I have bagged the coveted district-level championship in track events.
