Allen vs Mahomes Throw-Off Challenge Officially On?

I don’t care if they do it as the likelihood of them getting hurt is minimal.  Remember Rodgers Hail Mary for about 70 yards a couple of years ago.  It’s not like he threw out his shoulder. I don’t see it happening until they have fans to pay for attendance and that won’t happen for at least a year if they are trying to raise $ for charity.  Unless people are stupid enough to bet on it and give the winnings to charity.  Seems very Middle School.

I agree. Sure there is a minuscule opportunity for one or both to get hurt. But at the end of the day, it’s stupid. Like i said; if they do it for a good charity, fine. My money’s on Allen

Both of these guys need to spend an hour, sitting alone in a comfy arm chair in a quiet room, and contemplate this question:

 

"Why does it matter?"

 

It will likely matter to fans, not just of the two teams, but many NFL fans. It will likely matter to Madden fanboys and developers. And it will likely matter to the charities selected by each QB.

Mahomes has so many items written into his contract 

 

While Mahomes has now signed a contract containing the money he deserves, with his new deal come more restrictions about what he can and cannot due in his spare time. During a recent interview with 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City, Mahomes spoke about some of those physical activity prohibitions included in his new contract.

 

They have like everything from jet skiing to, I don't know what all the things are. I read a lot of them. It's pretty much every physical activity you could possibly do. I'll probably be sticking with football and video games for now." 

Sorry to burst the bubble.

This nonsense is like a HR derby at the MLB All Star Break. It proves nothing and mess's up what you normally do. Just look how many MLB players have crap 2nd halfs after participating and as @klos63 just said a way to injure your arm.

 

Mostly considered a myth at this point.  https://sabr.org/journal/article/home-run-derby-curse-fact-or-fiction/

Can they also do a fastball test?  Like - throwing the ball far has a lot of factors.  Just have them whip fastballs indoors and you don't even need to set anything up.  In fact... they already did this at the NFL combine

 

Allen threw 62, and Mahomes threw 60.

Can anyone cite an injury to a professional QB from throwing the ball as far as they can? 

 

I can believe average Joe 6 pack throwing out his rotator cuff trying to throw a football. I can't believe an NFL level professional athlete throwing out his rotator cuff by throwing a football. 

 

I think it would be a cool competition to have if they are raising $$ for charity

It’ll be something fun and I would hazard a guess that they will likely Use it as a way to make some money for some charity. With the way this year is going something like this would be awesome!

Somehow I doubt throwing a football is on that list.

Different types of stress

 

Baseball pitchers get Tommy John because their elbows get blown out. If anything this would blow out his rotator cuff

 

Humor eludes some, and some more than others.

Video games are known for causing issues in hands, wrists and elbows especially those who play extended periods.

Agree....can't see Andy & Sean signing off on this. But it would be cool to see.

Sean doesn't have to sign off on it. Josh doesn't have all those clauses in his contract

The difference between a homerun derby and a throw off, is a home run derby makes you adjust your swing to swing for the fences

 

that could potentially adjust your swing for a little bit.

 

Josh doesn't have to change his throwing mechanics for a one time throw off
