Not even two weeks out from the Kansa City Chiefs Super Bowl win and new Las Vegas Raiders head coach (officially) Antonio Pierce has a plan to stop Patrick Mahomes. Per PFT...
quote:

Before Michael Jordan won the first of his six NBA championships, his Chicago Bulls were eliminated in the playoffs three straight years by the Detroit Pistons. Those Pistons teams were known for their “Jordan rules,” a game plan specifically designed for Jordan. Now Raiders head coach Antonio Pierce is taking inspiration for that as he prepares his team to face Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes two (or three) times a season, for years to come.

Pierce appeared on Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby’s podcast and talked about how the Raiders need to be as single-minded in their approach to shutting down Mahomes as the Pistons were in shutting down Jordan.

“We’ve got the Jordan rules and we’ve got what I’m calling now, from now on as long as I’m here, the Patrick Mahomes rules,” Pierce said. “You remember when Jordan was going through it with the Pistons, all those guys in the ’80s before he became Michael Jordan, Air Jordan, the Pistons used to whip his arse. Any time he came to the hole, elbows, feeling him, love taps. We’re in his head, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, I’m touching you. So I showed my guys Jordan getting his arse whooped.”

Pierce said he shows the Raiders clips from boxing and UFC fights to show them the kind of aggression he wants from his defense, and he said he needs his team to have a fighter’s mentality toward Mahomes and the Chiefs. “We’ve got to knock off the head of the snake. Fifteen. Hate the color red,” Pierce said. “There’s a hatred for the Chiefs.”

Why wouldn't you gameplan to neutralize a team's best player?

Shouldn't have publicized this. Roger will not approve. Bounty gate v2.0 in the making. Personally, I love it

Give up the first drive to penalties and destroy him on every play - I mean, it could work.

If I’m a Raiders fan, I’m wondering how we hired a coach stupid enough to broadcast this openly.

Until the chiefs get holding called against them they can make whatever rules they want it won’t matter. The chiefs held the shite out of SF. Worse than bama.

Yep, Jordan was the most "protected" player to ever play in any professional sport.

Wasn’t the first rule of “Jordan rules” you don’t talk about “Jordan rules”?

Jordan Rules only worked because Joe Dumars might have been the only player that knew how to defend Jordan.

You can’t touch QBs anymore so this won’t work. Lot easier to throw 5k yards when you know nobody can lay a finger on you.

LOL, first of all, the Chiefs Oline can tackle whoever they want and nothing will be called. Second, if they touch Mahomes the wrong way, they will be penalized and fined to oblivion. The NFL will step in and protect the $$$.

You want to see the difference in toughness compared to the QB's of today. Just watch the highlights of Joe Kapp. The only modern day QB close in toughness was Brett Farve.

NFL will create a new 25 yard penalty for any "Jordan Rules" love taps on PM.
