The Lounge>QB situation #25 - Mahomes is boom or bust
CrowbarMan 01:58 PM 05-03-2018
USA Today ranks the Chiefs' QB situation as #25, partially due to the backup situation but also Mahomes being "boom or bust".

I expect he'll have a few early wins then hit a wall in his first season while he learns how to adjust to NFL-speed defenses. 7-9.

I actually think he is a respectable b/u QB.

If you have a b/u that can go .500 over a 4 game stretch and keep you in the playoff hunt you've got one of the better b/u QB's in the NFL right now...

Henne isnít great but if he has the full stable of weapons out there with him, he can probably win you some games. Has a solid deep ball.

Hopefully we never have to find out about him in real game action.

Scariest thing is zero qb experience in Reid's system except the starter. Who has 1 year.

So the offense will be dumbed down for any games Pat is out.

I don't know that he'll really bust, Reid is too good at getting guys in good spots.

But he could not really develop into a consistent guy. Hot and cold etc.

I expect Mahomes to be a good one, which probably means y'all are screwed.

Eh, I don't know. Our offense has a ton of playmakers.

Just get the ball in the hands of the playmakers and sit back and eat a balogna sandwich.

Mahomes will Bust... bust balls of every team we play.

These dumb assessments will be fun to read a year from now after Mahomes kicks ass deep into the playoffs.

Exactly - IF he were drafted by some media darling team, he'd be all BOOM!

My hope is that the NFL will quickly see their future and turn the Chiefs into their media darling.
