    Patrick Mahomes just completed one of the most dominant seasons in NFL History, all in his first year as a starter. Just two years ago, Mahomes was the 10th overall pick in the NFL Draft, a selection by the Kansas City Chiefs that was thought to be a major risk at the time. But Andy Reid certainly had a plan, and two years later it's safe to say the risk has been averted and the future of the Chiefs is taking over the league. Watch this video to see why he wasn't taken even higher, as a dynamic talent who was viewed as a multi-year project when he left Texas Tech for the NFL Draft.

    He couldnt have sat behind a better QB or guy for that matter in Alex Smith. Plus he just has crazy arm talent in terms of being able to throw an accurate football regardless of arm angle, pressure, on the move. Just an uncanny ability to throw an accurate ball no matter what. Ravens fan btw, hate you Mahomes, i hate you!

    Although I am not a Tennessee Titans fan, I think Marriota would be successful in an offense like Andy Reids. Personally, I hope the Titan are stupid enough to let Marriota go so he can end up in Los Angeles playing for the Rams or the Patriots. I'm not a Rams fan or a Patriots fan either.

    Why wouldn't you run a offense that would show and help your Q.B talents and as he plays more and his talents get better and he even get better on his weak spot.

    Ryan leaf I watched him play in college and expert some say he was better then P.Manning I was no way to me he was a right handed Scott Mitchell who was made by his W.Rs and R.Bs just like leaf was in college he looked like the fat lazy rich kid in school I just knew he would flip like Johnny football was over rated he was good but not the god they made him out to be

    Put mahomes on the browns or dolphins and win. Until then, he joined a team that was always undefeated after 9 weeks.

    Oh please. You idiots gushed about Dak Prescott too and now see how he's doing. These guys do well for two years and you idiots think they're the best QBs ever lol. Let me know when they've won multiple rings. Until then they're not worth knowing.

    Remember Steve "Air" McNair RIP. Drafted by the Houston Oilers. Played under Warren Moon for years before he became the starter. Then he became the franchise QB for the Tennesee Titans after they left Houston.

    Mahomes vs Deshaun Watson might become the new Manning VS Brady. Mahomes=The Mad Scientist. Watson=The General.

    It's funny because all of the things that talent evaluators said that made him a tough grade, are what makes him special. I.e. throwing off platform -- I remember Todd McShay said on an episode of "NFL Live" that some of his throwing platforms are "disgusting" lol -- and throwing from unorthodox arm angles. I always knew he was Favre 2.0., once I thoroughly watched him his Junior season at Texas Tech. And that Oklahoma-Texas Tech 2016 game, was tech as S***! Lol. People really missed out on this brother.. especially, Da Bears. They drafted Mitch Trustinsky, when they could've got Patty Mahomes-boy, or Deshaun Watson, without giving up any draft capital.

    Bears could have had him but instead they passed and even traded up to get Mitchell Trubisky. Imagine the Bears w Mahomes. Best team ever. Fml 🤦‍♂️

  • brianminkc

    Somehow they overlooked the fact he can throw the ball 90 yards and hit a penny.

  • Dominick Blando
    Dominick Blando Month ago

    I understand the points about what scouts felt was concerning about him. But what I wish I could understand is why Andy Reid saw Mahomes as the guy he needed and the Bears and Texans felt Trubisky was the most NFL ready qb in that draft and the best long term option. Why didn't they see the same opportunity that Andy Reid did?!
    As a Bears fan, I cry every time Mahomes throws another TD and Mitch goes 3 and out missing his receivers by a mile. If the Bears had Mahomes under center last year, they cruise to a SB with that defense.

  • Denver Broncos Mile High View

    Your not "overlooked" when a playoff caliber team moves up to draft you. It will be KC's job to keep top players around Mahomes. When the patsies beat Mahomes in his own back yard one game out from the SB, O-line break downs were the key to making Mahomes look rather pedestrian

    I'm a Pat's fan and naturally a brady fan but mahomes is the best quarterback I've ever seen in my life. Hes got the talent (a little better) than Rodgers and the tenacious mentality of Brady. If he sustains his run for 10+ years, he will be the goat undisputed

    I don't care what happens from here on out. In my opinion he deserves to be in the hall of fame off of that 1 season alone. That was the best QB season we ever seen. This dude is different.
