There’s a great new advertisement from Nike and Khalil Mack is featured in it.
Khalil Mack is arguably the best defensive player on the planet. Because of his dominance, he’s become one of the biggest stars in the NFL, and playing in a major market like Chicago certainly doesn’t hurt.
There’s plenty of hype surrounding the NFL’s 100th season and plenty of companies and organizations are going to want to ride that train for as long as possible.
Nike released their latest advertisement promoting their NFL athletes, and wouldn’t you know, Khalil Mack is one of three featured athletes.
The commercial is really well done and it’s absolutely worth watching. It features Odell Beckham Jr, Saquon Barkley and Mack. Arguably the league’s most dynamic wide receiver, running back and defensive player. If you want to get hyped check out the video in the embedded tweet.
If the Bears continue to remain among the elite teams in the NFL, Mack is going to continue to get more notoriety as a star and not just a great player.
When you have a work ethic like Mack, not to mention his insane skills, there’s no reason to think his abilities will be fading any time soon.
As great as Mack has been (4 Pro Bowls, 3 All-Pros), he isn’t satisfied and recently told the media he wants to become the greatest pass rusher to every play the game.
“I hold myself to that standard every single day,” Mack said. “I mean, you got LT [Lawrence Taylor], you got Derrick Thomas. You got special, special guys that have played this position and that’s all you can do is kind of chase. You can’t really compare those guys, the best of the best.”
As long as the Bears defense stays elite and offenses can’t continue to only key on Mack, there’s no question that 4 or 5 years from now, Mack’s name will be held in as high of regard as any pass rusher who’s ever played.
