Mike Florio has been known for his controversial takes during his time with ProFootballTalk.
The latest example of Florio in hot water comes after he suggested the San Francisco 49ers should lay a hit on Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl, perhaps after the whistle. This is not necessarily a dirty hit, but one that sends a message. This simple suggestion has Kansas City Chiefs fans expressing outrage online.
Florio does start out saying he is not suggesting a dirty hit on Mahomes. What he is saying is something the 49ers will probably try to do so anyway. Instead of letting this die, Florio doubled down.
This article did nothing to help the situation and Chiefs fans were even angrier than before.
Florio should have known his words may have been taken this way. He may just not have cared because he is the one getting all the exposure from this situation.
Though Florio has no control over the game, Chiefs fans will surely find a way to blame him if Mahomes does take a big hit against the 49ers.
