Chiefs OFFICIAL PATRICK MAHOMES Thread
#71
The moment Andy Reid knew he had something special in Patrick Mahomes.

https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2018/3/30...ck-mahomes

Story taken largely off of an interview with Big Red on the Around the NFL podcast, basically he talks about Chuckie returning to the NFL is good for the league and Mahomes doing the same amazing stuff he does in practice actually in a game against Denver being why he believes Mahomes is special, but it's still worth a read or listen.

An interesting little piece mostly about how crazy good the potential of Hill and Watkins together on the outside will be. They point out that Alex didn't really use the flanker opposite of Hill very much, mostly targeting Hill, Kelce, and then the slot receiver. Also, Reid took college concepts from Alex's Utah days to help him.

By that logic, we should expect to see some Air Raid elements in our offense this season, including more 4 wide looks. This is likely why Veach was still looking at receiving options including Benjamin Watson (who can line up in a slot) and Kendall Wright.


Obviously I'm excited about Mahomes, but seeing Mahomes comfortable early in his career in a way that Alex never was... it's a nice thought. I particularly like the idea of putting multiple TEs in the slot, forcing LBs and Safeties into coverage and out of the box. This could help Mahomes a lot, but it also would help Kareem.

Huh?  There's only one flanker on the field, and it's Tyreek Hill.  He's the one who lines up 1 yarr off the LOS.  

Isn't the guy playing opposite of hill the split end?

TBH, even though I knew Flanker specifically referred to one of the WR spots, I thought it was also an interchangeable more general term for either outside receiver. I guess I'm wrong, so yeah, I meant Split End.

I can never remember which one is the X and which one is the Z, so I always say Flanker and split end.  

It's so important to keep hill in that spot.  Putting him one yard back makes it nearly impossible to jam him with his speed and movement.  And a good press is the only way ANYONE in this NFL can run with him.

A couple Mahomes related articles. The first is Andy Reid on The Herd. Among the things he discusses is that Brett Veach was "responsibile" for Mahomes, that Dorsey turned Veach loose:

There's a link to the full interview here: https://foxsportsradio.iheart.com/conten...andy-reid/

The second is Patrick Mahomes the Second himself on ESPN's First Take saying that since the Chiefs have won the division two years in a row, "the next step is the Super Bowl":

Not that I really put much stock in riddick's opinion (or any one ESPN analyst), it's always nice to hear some confidence about a Chiefs player from way outside the organization.

It seems like most of the scouting and film guys like Mahomes with the occasional "he's too aggressive" thrown out there, it's the box score analysts and advanced metrics people that aren't that impressed yet, which is funny considering how much Mahomes lit up the scoreboard at Texas Tech. 284 passing yards in a debut is nothing to sneeze at either.

Alex Smith was throwing into enormous windows last season.  If Mahomes is doing the same next year, he's not going to be tossing picks as frequently like analysts suspect.  

KC's WR's separated better than any group in the NFL by an enormous margin.

Albert Wilson was actually tops in the league, which surprised me.. but he's not here anymore.

I seem to recall you saying Bert was a JAG. Big Grin

To be fair, there's a lot of holes in his game, so he isn't much more than a JAG. The Dolphins wanted him more than he was worth too.

I think his performance was better last season.  He made tough catches and competed harder for the ball, even taking some big hits he shied away from earlier.

He's still a JAG, even though Mahomes made him look like a stud.

I think him being so open out of the slot is related to the team speed and offensive system moreso than him being awesome.   

Now Tyreek was like #6 and he was doing it against opponents top CB most of the time.  He IS absolutely awesome.

Riddick just creamed his pants on the Will Cain Show when talking about Mahomes. He said that he will be the best QB come into the league in the last 5-10 years. And if Andy didn’t think he was going to be great, they would have never traded Smith.
