Most coaches assume good things will happen when their Antworten

defense generates enough pressure on an opposing quarterback that he must flee the pocket 鈥?a sack Authentic Rashad Fenton Jersey , an incomplete pass, a short run at worst.Broncos coach Vance Joseph has a very different feeling when Patrick Mahomes goes on the run.Just eight games into his professional career, the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback has already earned a reputation for being just as good outside the pocket as inside it.In fact, some of his biggest plays during the Chiefs' win in Denver a few weeks ago came when Von Miller and Co. forced him to scramble."Your plan has to trap and contain him and keep him where you want to be," Joseph said, "but you have no plan for when he breaks the pocket. That's going to be effort and want-to, and he outran most of our big guys and shook off most of our pass rushers. There's no exact plan when he's out of the pocket."That's because Mahomes has displayed a natural talent far beyond his years.You see, most young quarterbacks escape pressure and then immediately look to limit their losses. They may chuck the ball out of bounds or take off for a short gain and then slide to protect themselves.But what sets veterans such as Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady apart is that they have the uncanny ability to keep their eyes downfield, forcing defenses to continue covering even as they find open field. Then they have the arm strength and accuracy to deliver the ball from odd angles and off-balance positions.Joseph explained that Mahomes has those very same traits."It's very rare," he said. "He understands the pressures of when the pocket breaks, he can do damage. Most young quarterbacks are looking to gain 4 or 5 yards and slide and he is not. He's trying to make a play, and the problem with this guy is he can throw across his body left or right."So how can you combat that?" Joseph said. "You can't."The Broncos did a decent job of it in their meeting earlier this season, when they had the advantage of a home crowd. But Mahomes made some adjustments in the second half and began picking apart their secondary, helping the Chiefs rally for a 27-23 victory."As a quarterback you always feel more comfortable in the pocket," Mahomes said, "especially when I'm getting the protection I am now. But at the same time I like to get out of the pocket and give those wide receivers some time to make plays."That's because the Chiefs have some dangerous playmakers catching the ball.Whether it's tight end Travis Kelce causing matchup problems with linebackers, running back Kareem Hunt out of the backfield, or speedsters Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins on the outside Travis Kelce Jersey , Mahomes knows that if he's able to give them enough time that somebody is bound to come open."Mahomes, he can make all of the throws. I think with him you just try to pick and choose whether you can make your plays," Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said."I've been watching film on everybody else and everybody else playing these guys are scared. They're not challenging them. (Hill) is just running around free. That's not how we play. When we play them, we get up, we challenge them, put hands on them and that's how we come to play. We're not coming to be scared and let guys run for free all day."The Broncos acknowledge the difficulty in that, though. It's easy enough to cover several players for a few seconds, but it's much more difficult when Mahomes keeps a play alive three times that long."Listen, for anything he's doing right now, he's done a nice job of being such a young guy," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, "but to have that ability to keep your eyes downfield when you're outside the pocket is a big thing. Some of that comes natural to him and (our coaches) work with him on it, but a lot of it does come natural, keeping his eyes downfield and being able to throw with accuracy."That's a gift," Reid said. "Now, they work on it every day, but he does have a natural gift."Notes: Center Mitch Morse (concussion), linebacker Justin Houston (hamstring) and strong safety Eric Berry (heel) remained out of practice Thursday. Free safety Daniel Sorensen continued to work his way back onto the field after he rejoined the team from injured reserve earlier this week.Bob Sutton weighs in on David Amerson and Orlando Scandrick’s Saturday performances After Saturday’s 27-20 preseason loss to the Chicago Bears [url=www.]Tyreek Hill Jersey[/url] , Kansas City Chiefs fans weren’t yet carrying torches and pitchforks, but it would be safe to say that after the Chiefs defense appeared to play so poorly against the Bears second-team offense during the first half, they were at least putting them in their Amazon shopping carts.Head coach Andy Reid even offered some fairly mild criticism of the defense in his postgame remarks — which, for the low-key Reid, is roughly equivalent to a full-blown cray-cray rant from most of us.“So you’ve got to, you know, you can’t let your guard down at all you’ve got to continue to challenge, you’ve got to tackle. Those are the things I was looking for. We’ve got to do better on that.”In his weekly defensive trends and tabulations review, our own Craig Stout was blunter.But for a man who is likely on the hot seat in 2018, Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was remarkably serene during his appearance before the press on Monday.When asked if he had enough time to fix defensive issues to his satisfaction before the season opener against the Chargers, he was quite matter-of-fact about the whole thing.Bob being Bobsitive again.Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports“I don’t know that I can ever get it to my satisfaction,” he said. “But we have enough time to do it in. There’s a lot of things in there that from a coaching perspective I wouldn’t consider that difficult to fix. Some of our coverage has got to be a little tighter — ‘You’ve got to get a little closer to this guy on this coverage.’ Again, it’s not, ‘I didn’t know who to cover, I just have to move closer in this type of coverage. I need a better break when the ball is thrown.’ Or, ‘This is pure zone coverage, so I need to do that.’ Or, ‘It’s man-to-man coverage. I need to get my eyes out of the backfield and strictly on my man.’“Things that I know seem basic Darwin Thompson Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , but that’s usually what gets you in trouble. From a technique standpoint, I always think it’s your eyes and your feet that get you into trouble the fastest — you’re not looking at the right thing, or you can’t get your feet going where you want them to go, and then you have that third step that you have to make up all the time.That’s really hard.That’s all part of the technique thing that you just keep drilling on all the time.”Just another day at the office for Sutton — even when our own Pete Sweeney asked him directly about two players being vilified by Chiefs fans on social media after Saturday’s defeat: David Amerson and Orlando Scandrick.Amerson struggling against the Falcons.Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports“Obviously these are two different scenarios,” he replied. “David has been here for what seems like a long time — compared to some of the other guys — and Orlando just got here. I think David didn’t play as well as he is capable of playing on Saturday. But he’s still got the ability to do this thing and get it done — technique, good eyes, all that — that just has to keep going. He’s a player that’s played enough snaps that he can make that improvement and get that back.“Orlando is just learning the system,” Sutton continued.“He’s a veteran guy who has played in a lot of different systems. It’s terminology and those small adjustments. There’s nothing you can do but keep playing. There’s no way to get him past that without playing, and meeting with him. And keep doing that.”And while Sutton — like his head coach on Saturday — acknowledged poor tackling by his defense, he did think there were some positives on Saturday, including having Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland on the field together.“I liked the fact that we got a couple of these guys out there that hadn’t played a lot together. The organizational part of getting the calls, the checks and the alignments were good for the inside linebackers.“Obviously we didn’t play as well as we wanted to. We didn’t convert on third down, which was big in that game. We had some scrambles that got out that hurt us early in the game. On two of them we got into pretty good position to have a shot at a sack. On most scoring drives, you’ll usually find a big play and/or a penalty in the drive, and that played true in Chicago. Eliminating those will be big for us.”
