To Mahomes' credit; he did do well overall in that game.
Dude, he missed a few throws because he was amped up. He then proceeded to lead the Chiefs to 31 points in the second half in Foxboro. He is still the number one QB in the league by QBR, is on pace for 48 touchdowns and right at 5000 yards. Please explain what you have seen in Mahomes that doesn't scream star?

He also finished the game with a higher QBR and rating than Brady who was going up against a terrible Chiefs defense that was minus 4 safeties and 2 All-Pros. He could fall off a cliff, I guess, but I don't see a Deshaun Watson-like regression coming.

Agree with bold, but part of his style is taking hits on his throws, which is admirable, but stupid. I see injuries in his future.

like many young and mobile QBs, hits are a concern.

he was fantastic against NE. and he left some throws out there and could have done more. Brady could have too. Might not have mattered. Maybe it would have ended 56-53 if they captured all the available stuff.

He doesn't look to run though and he doesn't get hit that often. Watson becomes a RB if he feels a little pressure. The comp for Mahomes on the mobility front is Rodgers. Sure he could get injured like Rodgers did on a sack, but I don't see RGIII/Watson/Newton/Prescott kind of risk of injury.

There is a company here in Louisville that does football data and they had a big write up in the NYT after the Super Bowl because they provided analytics to the Eagles. They do a website called footballoutsiders.com with all kinds of data and someone for their company does a segment on the local sports radio. Well the host of this show is from KC and loves the Chiefs so he was like give me a reason analytically to not be as excited as I am about Patrick Mahomes. He said tell em there is data or some kind of statistic you all calculate that tells me to be cautious or that he might not be everything that he seems to be. The guy said and I quote "there isn't analytics available that I know of anywhere that shows there is any reason to not think that Patrick Mahomes is the real deal". He said everything just jumps off the page, from efficiency, accuracy, deep accuracy, decision making, etc, etc, etc.
