ilm analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes. Part one here.It’s the midway point of the 2018 season and Clark Hunt was in town this week to deliver his state of the Chiefs address. Of course Darwin Thompson Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , he is clearly satisfied with what is happening currently in Kansas City. His 7-1 team has arguably the MVP of the league and best young asset in football, Patrick Mahomes.The proof of those two statements mounts every week. It’s an embarrassment of highlight riches for a fan base finally getting the taste of a franchise quarterback experience. Chiefs fans are wiping their nose with $100 bills. The standard for what amazes is higher than in any other city right now. You’re experiencing rare displays of arm talent each and every week. I hope we never get numb to them. This week is litmus test for that because there’s a throw that hasn’t made rounds yet that absolutely deserves to be.Something specialWe’ll start this week with something special. The situation and moment is not nearly as glamorous as some other throws Mahomes has delivered, but this should be up there with all the ones you’re thinking about right now.Denver is in a split safety look and the Chiefs are in a five-man protection with Spencer Ware free releasing on a swing route. Travis Kelce is running an out route and attacks safety Will Parks before breaking out. Mahomes is facing pressure from Shaquille Barrett, who is free on a twist. He doesn’t get a chance to step into this throw completely as he’s hit on the delivery. Regardless of the pressure, Mahomes shows some of the best anticipation he has all year, releasing the ball right as Kelce is getting out of his break. The arm talent to deliver this ball 20 air yards despite everything going on is rare. Even without following through on his throw, Mahomes places this ball perfectly to Kelce in stride and between a triangle of defenders. Denver had a great call on a pressure that got home and it didn’t matter. Mahomes flat out beat it with his rare abilities. We get moments like this every week. Panning for gold isn’t supposed to be this easy.It wasn’t the first time that game he delivered through pressure and contact.This is yet another fantastic throw. Mahomes delivers a strike in the red zone as he’s feeling backside pressure and is actually hit as he’s releasing it. It doesn’t affect the ball enough to be inaccurate—Mahomes arm talent gets the ball through the pressure. Lesser velocity might’ve forced this ball to be altered Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , but not with Mahomes here. Where the Chiefs were on the field is important to this too. The margin for error slims down the closer you get to the end zone.Something smartSpeaking of red zone efficiency...The Broncos are showing a middle field closed coverage shell with Kelce flanked out in the boundary in a 2x2 formation. He will be running a post. Mahomes is going to trust Kelce in this situation 100 times out of 100. He’s the best tight end in football.To maintain the window to throw this ball, Mahomes needs to keep the middle-field safety from driving on Kelce. In order to keep that window, Mahomes gives eyes and his shoulder to the field to hold the safety before whipping his eyes and hips around at the exact right time to deliver a strike to Kelce on the front line of the end zone. The safety is not able to close to contest the throw in time and the Chiefs score a touchdown.Decision making that close to the goal line has to be quick. Being able to process the information pre-snap, work his eyes and shoulders to maintain a window, and the timing to flip back to give Kelce a chance to score is exceptional work from a young quarterback. It’s becoming common, but these plays need to continue to be appreciated. Everything is on hold at the moment, as it pertains to Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill.But there’s a chance his future was going to be different Darwin Thompson Jersey nfl draft , even before reports of an investigation of allegations of battery of a child.In a mailbag column at , Jay Glazer mentions that he heard “rumblings” that Hill’s name was being mentioned in trade talks earlier this offseason.Again, the current investigation makes that a moot point for now, but it’s worth filing away for several reasons.For one, Glazer was ahead of the herd with his “bold prediction” that Giants wideout Odell Beckham could be traded this offseason, a prediction that came in when he was dealt to Cleveland.But at the time from which those Hill rumblings emanated, the Chiefs were talking to Hill about a contract extension Replica Darwin Thompson Jersey , which would have likely dwarfed any deals at the time. Perhaps if those talks weren’t going well, and the Chiefs weren’t confident about their ability to resign him, they might have taken the temperature of others to see what Hill’s value would be.The legal system and the NFL’s own investigation is taking center stage now, but it’s worth considering that Hill’s future in Kansas City might not have been as secure as some imagined.
