Tyreek Hill is no ordinary receiver, and when he had a monstrous performance last season, he called on Shannon Sharpe and a famous telephone call to celebrate.
Hill has quickly become into one of the best receivers in the NFL as his speed and ability to stretch an NFL defense vertically has given him some crazy performances.
Aside from his rookie season, Hill hasn’t a single year when he’s averaged fewer than 14 yards per catch. Paired with Mahomes’ rocket of an arm, Hill has truly found a special place within the Kansas City Chiefs offense. However, even Hill took it to another level in a regular season game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tyreek Hill Famously Imitated Shannon Sharpe After Torching The Buccaneers Defense
In a 1996 matchup between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, things were very one sided. The Broncos were routing the Patriots, and in the middle of it all, legendary tight end Shannon Sharpe decided that he would try and bring in a little support for New England by calling the President and asking for the national guard.
In honor of Shannon Sharpe’s birthday … 🤣

The Broncos ultimately won 34-8. Tyreek Hill felt that his performance in the first half of the Chiefs regular season game against the Buccaneers was equally worthy of the National Guard’s attention, and well he did have a case for it. Just look at these eye popping stats that Hill put up in just the first half of the game as Kansas City went on to win 27-24.
Tyreek Hill has 7 receptions for 203 yards & 2 TDs in the FIRST QTR 😳

That led to this incredible moment:
Don’t worry Bucs fans… “Help is on the way”… Or at least it better be!!!

Needless to say, Hill definitely did deserve a special kind of celebration after the way he was torching Buccaneers defenders left and right. Tampa Bay would come back with a far better game plan in the Super Bowl, shading Hill with two or three safeties always instead of playing the cover-one concepts they tried in that regular season bout.
