    If I were Watson.....I'd fire a few passes off the back of my receivers helmets before taking a sack as a way to engrain in their heads about how far they can run before he doesn't have any time left in the pocket.

    They are doing what the coaches tell them to do.

    And there's the problem.

    They have them "running routes" to their conclusion , no variables , just run that route.

    They should be reading a defender and varying the route based off of that.

    And you have to know as a WR that if your QB is in trouble , you present your numbers - Head back towards him.

    As an NFL fan, I really enjoy Mahomes and look forward to his future. It's a blast watching him play. He's Neo in the football Matrix.

    As a Texans fan, I just wish he was in the NFC. . .

    Exciting is far different than better...

    I think Watson is more exciting but Mahomes is better to this point

    Exciting is kinda subjective. For some people it might just equal better.

    I found Barry Sanders exciting.

    I found Olajuwon exciting.

    I find the current Astros exciting.

    I find it exciting to watch something so spectacular.

    Watson.


    Mahomes or not, I probably couldn't care less about KC if you paid me.

    Man that Chiefs team is doing everything we wish ours was …. and their QB is doing everything we thought ours might and then some.

    KC has never put up fewer than 26 points with Mahomes starting - Our Texans didn't post 26 in the last two home games combined. We should call it the short bus offense.

    Mahomes just missed a wide open long ball TD. Scrub. Guess he’s not smart enough to grasp that WCO. Maybe it was his terrible footwork.

    Everybody misses passes.

    Not everybody has games like Watson had last week. He was inaccurate, (Why do you think he was throwing passes after the post game PC?

    Mahomes looked human last night. I like the guy, but I've always wondered how he would respond when he eventually gets injured (just a matter of time in the NFL) and lost some of his weapons.

    The Colts played a great game. Man coverage, kept the pressure on, and maybe most important, kept Mahomes off the field with long drives.

    Yesterday, Watson was 1000x "more exciting".

    I know the word stupid has been thrown around and there are even suggestions of racism. Call it what you will - racism is a hair trigger reaction and I think unwarranted. Stupid is a bit extreme. But Watson DID have a miserable game last week. I think it was a collective stupid honestly (to include schemes and play calling.)

    They made a 180 this week and if we give this effort every game its gonna be a good season.

    Plenty of QBs have terrible games or stretches, how they bounce back is what matters.

    Take Aaron Rogers for instance. Here are the worst statistical games of his career...prior to 2015

    https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl...rst-games-of-career/gzfy0854lrh21a39nk8d1uz6x

    What about Tom Brady? Has he ever had poor games?

    https://www.complex.com/sports/tom-bradys-worst-perfomances/10-12-03-giants

    I honestly could go on and on, but I think you get the point. Even in a "great" system (which ours is not) QBs have terrible games. It happens. The defenders get paid too. Watson strives for greatness. Him staying on the field to work on his issues are not an indicator of him being terrible, it was an indicator that he played a bad game and wanted to shake it off.

    None of that is the point though. Our EP system is consistently putting our guys at a disadvantage. OB has his own version of it and it requires a lot of things to be perfect, not simply the QB. It's not working, nor has it ever consistently worked. Your opinion cannot dispute that.

    I agree with this post except the last sentence. The EP system has and does still work.

    Definitely a heck of a coaching job by Reich. Brilliant game plan on both sides of the ball.

    Mahomes was looking human even before he got hurt. Like the Lions the Colts were able to get quick pressure on him every time he dropped back.

    He was throwing it away quick, granted there were some iffy non-calls that also prevented him getting in a rhythm.

    Can't wait to see what BO'b comes up with.

    I love that a guy throws for 300+, 8+ ypa, and a score and no turnovers, and still has a shot to take the lead late..

    and the big story is superman bleeds too..

    F*ck sake if that's not a concession.

    One of those guys are on this list. The other is Pat Mahomes.
