NFL Player Tells Teammates They Need A Chevy To Get Through The Snow

Winter has settled in across the United States, at least for those that live in places that actually have winters. And the very first blizzard is bearing down on the New England area, which means travel woes for quite a few residents. This is especially true of those that are new to the area and maybe haven’t ever driven in snow or ice, as is the case with some New England Patriots players. So one of the team’s wide receivers, Gunner Olszewski, has a bit of advice for them – buy a Chevy.

“If you have a Chevy, you’re good. You going to make it practice,” Olszewski said during an afternoon video conference, according to Mass Live. “It’s them guys driving Fords and stuff that I worry about. That’s the only advice I give: Get a Chevy.”

It’s clear that Olszewski is a Chevy guy, so we get it. We’d obviously be telling our colleagues the opposite, as any true truck brand fanboy would. But what makes this comment even funnier is the fact that Olszewski is originally from Alvin, Texas, which isn’t exactly known for its annual snow totals. However, he did spend four years at Bemidji State in Minnesota, so we suppose he knows how to drive in the slick stuff.

Thankfully, some other Patriots players gave safety Adrian Phillips, who also grew up in Texas, some actual advice that might help him navigate the major storm. “They gave me some tips, they gave me a shovel and stuff to help me out, they told me about the sandbags and salt bags,” Phillips said. “So I’ve just got to do what I’ve got to do, if I’ve got to get out there and shovel I’m going to do it, just make sure my car is warmed up before I go.”

    What’s even funnier is that Mr Olszewski’s team is horrible. Here’s my hot take for him. If you want to be in the playoffs this year, and what appears to be many more bleak years in NE football wise, then go to another team.

    Yeah, this from a guy who”make it practice” can’t even talk right. His knowledge and intelligence comes into play and should not be taken seriously as to making a major purchase as a new chevy JUNK? REALLY? Thanks ,but no, I’ll just stick to my tried and true Ford F-150 and F250 trucks.

    Sorry Mr. Football player but my 17 year old F150 4×4 with limited slip has done well for me. But I do suggest a good set of tires…😆

    Does ANYONE give 2 shakes of a rats rear end what an NFL player says?
    He’ll most likely be found frozen stiff in the cab of his rusted out Chevy that’s stuck in a snow drift.

      Lee, apparently your comment answers your own question.

    The last thing anyone cares about is advice of any kind from an NFL player. The league is dead, viewership is half of what it used to be and the virtue signaling Social Justice warriors simply pissed so many people off that no one cares anymore. My suggestion for all the players is to STFU and start looking for another job. Kaepernick started the demise of the NFL and he succeeded. GM sells far less pickups then Ford does and they continue to struggle every refresh. The 2021 F150 will again be #1 in North America.

    Obviously, the NFL’s concussion protocol is not working as well as desired.

    I guess that’s why 80% of Police Organizations use the FORD as their primary transportation provider!

    @Bob
    Sales records are true.
    Viewership may be accurate.
    We only care about what we experience. So it sounds like you haven’t lived as a Black man. As Ford vs Chevy goes, Ford always wins even over the top selling cars.

      Yes you’re absolutely correct, I haven’t lived as a Black man, I also haven’t got a job through affirmative action even though my skill and ability did not qualify me for the job. No I haven’t tried to leverage what happened to people hundreds of years ago against another generation that had nothing to with it, and no I haven’t disrespected our veterans by kneeling when the Nation anthem is played, and no I haven’t lied about being attacked by Trump Supporters in MAGA hats then been found out be a liar, and no I haven’t demanded equality and fair representation in the workplace except for my NFL and NBA teams. Yes you are 100% correct.

        But you probably did benefit through white privilege. Most white people are racists or support or defend white supremacy.
        Why should people support evil people? Support white soldiers raping, pilaging, murdering, torturing, sabotaging governments, committing genocide and stealing land from a nonwhite people?
        But nonwhite people should kneel to an anthem produced during slavery and to a nation that has always been against them?

        How about white people start to care about nonwhites and more than a silly propagandic anthem?

        The constitution and freedoms only apply to white people. How dare nonwhites kneel to the white anthem when whites kill innocent blacks unjustly.

    Just how stupid do these has been NFL think we are? It not what you drive in the snow, it’s how you drive. My 15 year old f 150 2wd has never left me stranded. Put a little snow on the back and I’m good to go.

    Go by any construction site ,municipalities police public works or fire dept at anytime of the year you will see overwhelmingFord trucks,SUV’s or cars, i have plowed snow commercially
    For 30+ yrs had all 250 and 350’s other than expected repairs which were minimal considering conditions, current truck F250 with 130 000 miles,the key is pm and good fuel ,hiring older drivers helps to !

    Well, he may be on to something. Chevy has made available on their trucks in the northern climates a heated rear bumper so the owner’s hands won’t get frostbite when they have to push their trucks in the snow.

    The presidential motorcade actually used a ford F350 Super Duty six door conversion truck in 2018 at the tail end not sure if still used now.

    And our Military vehicles are GM, due to reliability. Sure the cheapest built truck will be the most purchased on the market. Who doesn’t like a cheap new vehicle? Ford’s still do not have the horsepower or torque of a Chevy or a dodge. Chevy has unleaded fuel engines more powerful than a Ford’s Diesel. Make sense? Officers drive Ford’s because they’re cheaper. Y’all need some Google in your live bashing Chevy’s because you’re a fanboy of a cheap brand. Your “Great Value” to my “Mrs. Bairds.”

    Also, any 4×4 vehicle our officers USE are Chevy Suburban or Chevy Tahoe, by the way.
