The Big Gamble: Patrick Mahomes

RamAirVA

Curse and Damn You Spanos!
In all reality Reid did gamble on Mahomes.
A huge gamble...

And he won big like a pimp!
TBH, I'd put it more in the category of a Calculated Risk than a straight Gamble.

Just like counting cards in 21, raise or lower your bet based on a positive/negative tilt towards the number of high cards you estimate remaining in the deck. Can be very successful if done correctly... ;)

Reid knew the physical tools were present and that there was enough potential to raise his bet, figuring that eventually Mahomes would get it. He's just cashing in ahead of schedule, it appears.

Do you need to be rocked to sleep too?

Heck, I'll betcha that that stupid Andy Reid, with his lousy #1 scoring offense,
couldn't even accurately quote Alex Smith's 2017 passer (104.7, btw!!) rating! Big dummy!!

p.s.: Is it a bad time to point out that Smith's current passer rating (89.8)
is settling in quite close to his career passer rating (87.5)?

It's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster. Straight 8. Fireball 8. Only 8,985 production models. Dad lets me drive slow on the driveway. But not on Monday, definitely not on Monday.
 
King Arthur: “How can you throw a TD pass, you have no bloody arms?!?”

Black Knight: “‘Tis just a flesh wound. Plus, I’m the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, they have Tyreek Hill and their receivers get so wide open anybody could throw a TD pass. Besides, we play pushovers like the Cincinnati Bengals where anyone, even a guy with no arms, could pass for 300 yards and three TD passes.”

Mahomes is legit and deserves a ton of credit for what he's doing, I was hoping he'd be available late in the first and the Chargers trade up for him. I'm happy with Mike Will though and Hopefully the annual Chief meltdown game comes on TNF.

Don't like it, lump it!!!
This kid is playing great and no one can take that away from him. He's still gonna get his come upends and that will dictate the rest of his career, enjoy this ride as long as it last's, it will come to an end!!!

Pfft, nothing special. It's all just the system and wide-open receivers. :roflmao:
 
Congratulations to Patrick Mahomes for reaching Blake Bortles territory with FIVE turnovers in last night's game, two of which resulted in defensive TDs. It was really impressive to see him choke in the clutch TWICE with his team needing just a FG to tie the game as he threw INTs to kill his team's last two scoring chances. I am not sure which was funnier--seeing Ebukam running Mahomes over on his way to a pick 6 TD, seeing Mahomes miss wide open receivers in the clutch, or seeing Mahomes turtle for about 3 seconds for a pass rush that was not near him when he went into protect himself crouch mode. And just maybe somebody should teach Mahomes how to protect the ball when he is getting tackled. LMAO!

And let's not forget that the only reason why Mahomes did not have 6 turnovers is because he had a third defensive TD reversed by the refs.

As for the 6 TD passes, talk about putting the stat padding on a tee. It must be tough to have to throw to the fastest receiver in the NFL. There was the underthrown TD pass that Hill had to wait for in the end zone. There was the TD pass where the defender had fallen down and Hill was 30 yards in the clear. There were the crossing routes to Kelce and Conley where pick plays had left the receiver all alone, essentially uncovered. There was the dump off to an uncovered Hunt. Yeah, it really shows great QB play to throw to receivers that are basically not being defended at all.

And then there was the overthrown pass to Kelce that went right to Conley, which is at least the second time this season that the Chiefs/Mahomes scored a passing TD when Mahomes overthrew his receiver, but another one in the same zip code caught the pass. Sure, Patrick, you were trying to throw that pass to Conley. Sure.

Meanwhile, Mahomes is now 3rd in the NFL in INTs with 10.

As for the Rams, they are #21 in terms of yards allowed per game and #23 in terms of points allowed per game. Didn't you claim that their defense was good? If so, you must have a different definition of good than I do.

If six touchdowns and nearly 500 yards against an elite team was "Blake Bortles territory," the Jaguars would probably be the reigning Super Bowl champions right now.

Way to ignore the 5 turnovers. Seriously, every decent QB in the NFL makes the TD throws that Mahomes made in last night's game. 5 of those throws were as easy as it gets. The sixth was a little more difficult and Mahomes missed it, but missed it to one of his other open receivers.

The Rams have been elite in spite of their defense, not because of it. Again, way to ignore that the Rams are 21st in the league in yards allowed and 23rd in terms of points allowed. That is not elite.

Mahomes lost the game for the Chiefs last night, pure and simple just the way Bortles lost the game with his 5 turnovers when the Jags played the Chiefs. Bortles also had over 400 uards passing that day too.

You forgot to include Tyreek Hill in this latest manifesto.

Of course, the hater comes out to cherry pick in an overall incredible performance.

If you analyze the INTs, the first one was a fluke with a great catch by the defender. The second one he got hit when throwing and the third was thrown out of desperation with no time left.

No doubt! Let's just ignore all of the following. Obviously Mahomes is overrated:laugh: And let's not forget he's just 23 and in what is essentially his rookie year. Jeebus H. If this doesn't warrant superlatives all over the place I dont know what does :
» Patrick Mahomes joins Ben Roethlisberger (2014) and Y.A. Tittle (1962) as the only player since 1950 with two games with 6-plus pass TD in a single season. It was Mahomes' second game with 6-plus pass TD in his first 12 career games (no other player has even 1 such game since 1950).

» Mahomes had his sixth game of 4-plus pass TD this season (T-2nd most in a season since 1950; Peyton Manning, 9).

» Mahomes is the fifth QB since 1950 to throw six pass TD in a losing effort: Eli Manning (Week 8, 2015), Carson Palmer (Week 2, 2007), Dan Marino (Week 3, 1986), Charley Johnson (Week 7, 1969).

The only reason Mahomes didn't have 6 turnovers is because everyone but you and that stellar officiating crew could see it was a forward pass. The fact that you even brought it up shows how petty you are.
