This Damien Williams-Raheem Mostert Post-Game Interaction Is Beautiful...and Now There May a Take-Back Situation!
Not only was I just 4 points off from correctly guessing the score of Super Bowl LIV, but two guys I had on my fantasy team (at some point this season) showed tf out (one more than the other).
Damien Williams of the Kansas City Chiefs had 133 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns; both in the 4th quarter. Probably should've been MVP. The would be NFC Championship Game MVP, if such a thing existed, Raheem Mostert had a respectable 13 touches for 60 yards and touchdown in defeat.
After the Super Bowl the two undrafted running backs (who after Derrick Henry were the best backs in the playoffs) paid their respect to each other in this clip that just so happened to be captured by NFL Films.
While this was a beautiful moment of love and sportsmanship; it appears now both are realizing they might have let the moment get the best of them. Everybody is so caught up in the jersey swap and being the guy people talk about after the game they may have very well not realized the magnitude of the situation. I can only imagine the emotions both were feeling after the game. You're not thinking about how much the jersey is potentially worth. Each's story to how they got there is incredible; they're talking about that. How two undrafted running backs were the showcase, not top 5 guys like Zeke or SaQuadddd. While some may say it's just a shirt, I know if I played in the Super Bowl (especially if I won) I'd wanna keep that memento.
There's a documentary out now about the saga to get Tom Brady's jerseys from Super Bowl LI and XLIX back. In case you're unaware, the sports memorabilia market is quite lucrative (and shady!)It's pretty clear Mostert got the better deal out of this as Williams jersey is far more valuable. Sure these guys are in the NFL, but undrafted running backs don't exactly have fuck you money.
I just think it's really cool to see this moment, how these guys wanted to show love, then both were able to step back and make a decision that was beneficial for both. What a beautiful thing! Football is soooooooooooooooooOOOOooooooooooo much better than baseball! Damien the least you can do is reimburse me the $700 my league's dictator fucked me out of.
