The Greatness of Patrick Mahomes
« on: December 11, 2018, 04:49:43 PM »
Its not often I use the G word for a guy in his first season, but this guy merits it.

I now know why Reid was willing to trade Smith.  I think Mahomes will win the MVP award.  43 TDs, over 4000 yards passing, and 11 interceptions. With three games left.  Has anyone ever thrown that many TDs in their first year?

This guy has just so much natural ability, that he does things you cannot teach, like flip the ball to your left hand to complete a pass since he knows the guy is grabbing his right. And wow what an arm.

Man did the Bears screw up or what?  They could have had the best defensive player and the best QB in the game, but they decided to TRADE UP for Trubisky, who looks about average.

That was a life saver for us. Because we would be looking at a dynasty.

mahones is having an outstanding first year. But it seems I've heard this sort of praise before, specifically about the Eagles Wentz. Remember Dak Prescott's first year? Also very good. Though neither is in the same level of excellence as Mahones in his first year. Now, compare him with Dan Marino, and see if there is some equivalance in their second years. Seems very similar. But a dynasty if he was on the Bears? Marino made it to one SB, lost, and never returned. So, although Mahones is probably the MVP frontrunner, lets see what happens once they hit the playoffs, and especially if they make the SB. Then, lets see what his second full year is like, and see what transpires once teams have more film on him, discover his tendencies, and make moves to counter his strenghs. It happens all the time, and expect it to happen again. It could well be that KC is this year's Philly, where the stars aligned perfectly and they won it all with a backup QB.

BTW, if Mahomes does what I think he will do, that is throw for  over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, he will be only the second QB in history to do so.

It took Peyton Manning about 15 years to achieve that feat.

If he does it, Mahomes will have achieved it in his first season.

Is Mahones having a season for the ages? Absolutely. Will he continue to play at that level for years to come? Ask me at the end of years to come.

If he does win the Super bowl he would have achieved what Favre and Rodgers have also done.  I agree that if he does not play at this crazy level then he might just average only 30 TD a year and only 4000 yards per year, but I think the Chiefs would still take those numbers for future years.

I watch Mahomes and I can't help but think that while everyone else is playing NFL football, Mahomes is playing Madden.
