  1. The Curse

    Sports Illustrated has PM II on the cover. What dire things will follow? Perhaps the Mexico City game is a sign. The field is so bad the NFL is considering canceling the reservation. Where is George Toma when you need him? https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2018/11/13/18091610/patrick-mahomes-to-appear-on-the-cover-of-sports-illustrated https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/report_nfl_could_move_rams_chiefs_game_out_of_mexico_city/s1_8061_27764084 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Toma
  2. It's time to get excited about the Chiefs D again!

    And, to put the Cleveland game in proper perspective, Baker Mayfield and Nick Chubb lit the Falcons up yesterday. Mayfield had 3 TD and 0 Int. Chubb had 176 yards rushing and a TD plus 33 yards receiving and another TD. J
  3. Week 10 GDT: AZ @ KC

    Who would have thought that 21/28, 75.0%, 249 yds, 2 TD, 0 Int, 125.4 rating would be disappointing? Mahomes has been spoiling us. J
  4. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    No. '07 really stands out in Brady's career. Of course, that was the Moss season, plus he had 100 catches and 1000 yards from Welker. The third receiver was Dante Stallworth, another WR. This week, Mahomes "only" throws two TD passes under a ton of pressure. The OL played well against Cleveland but gave up 5 sacks today. J
  5. Looking ahead - 2020 roster preview

    It's obvious in hindsight that this is exactly the situation that the FO intended. This whole off-season, draft, and season have been built around securing a core. Everything else has been chinking the cracks. J
  6. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    If you look at previous monster seasons--Marino 84, Manning 04 and 13, Brady 07--they all had two WR going off. Mahomes is the only one with a TE going ballistic. That said, some of Brees' best work was with Graham and Sproles combining for 1800 yards. Concerning player acquisition, for game 9, against Cleveland, the Chiefs' OL was Eric Fisher and four former Browns. They kept Mahomes clean against a very good pass rush. Some of it is talent and some is making the most of what you have. Mahomes is literally two days younger than Marino in 1984 by birthdate. However, Marino played the first game of the season on September 2nd while Mahomes did it on September 9th. You can cut it either way. The youngest MVP ever is Jim Brown at 21, more than 17 months younger. Walter Peyton was younger by about 6 weeks. Marino and Mahomes are by far the youngest QB. J
  7. Week 10 GDT: AZ @ KC

    You have to love it when a TV commentator refers to 375 yards and three TD as, "your basic Mahomes game." No one has ever averaged 375 yards and 3 TD/G has only been done four times. Ho hum, just another day at work. Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Kareem Hunt carved up a very good Cleveland defense for 499 yards and 4 TD. Speaking of Hunt, few have noticed that his season is tracking his breakout rookie year, a little less rushing, a little more receiving, about the same in toto. Well, he has twice as many TD per game, but that is usually acceptable. This week we get the Cardinals. Let's clip some wings.
  8. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    I did watch him in '13 and that is not a fair evaluation. The thing about '13 is that the magic faded as the year wore on. Still, you make a fair point. I am prepared to accept that PM was better in '04 but did not throw as often. As a footnote, I will point out that Mahomes sometimes goes by PM II. J
  9. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    You can make the case Manning had a better season in 2004, based on peripheral numbers like Y/A, but the record stats came from 2013. J
  10. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    Good catch. I think it's sick that as good as Brees has been, as good as Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have been, Mahomes 2018 season would be the best of (arguably) their respective careers. We will not even talk of about those that were before the offenses opened up. I will only say that in week 10 Mahomes may break a 54-year-old team record for TD passes in a season. J
  11. Pat Mahomes' Season in Perspective

    Through nine games PM II is on pace for 5154 yards passing and 52 TD. In history, there have bee nine 5000 yard seasons and two 50 TD seasons. To put that in perspective, Drew Brees is on pace for 4153 yards and 32 TD. Mahomes' pace would yield the best season of Brees' HoF career. It would be comparable to Brady's 4800 yard, 50 TD, 16-0 season. Only Peyton Manning's first year in Denver is clearly better, 5407 yards and 55 TD. This is one of the all-time seasons and most NFL followers are just starting to notice. J
  12. Week 9 GDT: KC @ Cle

    I love what one of the post-game shows said. They referred to 375 yds and 3 TD as, "your basic Pat Mahomes game." To save you the trouble of doing the math that figures out to 6000 yards and 48 TD. 5000 has been done nine times (five by Drew Brees). 5500 has never been done. 48 has been done four times. The record is 55. PM II is on pace for 5154 yds and 52 TD, seventh and second best respectively. J
  13. Week 9 GDT: KC @ Cle

    Another Cincinnati game works. J
  14. San Antonio attempting to land NFL team

    Don't be. The Raiders are more likely. Even that's not very likely. What I could see is Charlotte moving to Virginia. J
  15. It's time to get excited about the Chiefs D again!

    As bad as the results have been, look at who they played. Rivers, BenRoth, that NE guy, Dalton. I have no explanation for Keenum other than it's division play. The other weak QB, Bortles, they picked four times. Dalton is a good QB and they held him to 10 points. The next two weeks have rookie QBs, Mayfield and Rosen, before another elite, Goff. The Rams, unfortunately, also come with an elite ground game. Still, I look forward to the Mexico City game. That will be a real test of the whole team. Let's warm up with two sub-20 points allowed games. J
