Watson or Mahomes? Who is more exciting?

I'm not even sure I'd take Mahomes at this point. Lets see how he does when he's lost many of his weapons, has injuries to overcome and has to win despite his defense. Not saying he won't do it but now we'll get to really see what Mahomes is made of. We've already seen what Watson is made of.
The Texans had a much better defense than the Chiefs do now when Watson was getting the he!! beat out of him on a regular basis.

I still say Watson reminds me of a young Steve Young. Just like Young, Watson needs to improve/speed up his decision making like he has the last 2 weeks and do it consistently.

Jimmy G and Wilson were found outside of the 1st rd and should count.

I understand how you set up the framework for this discussion and I agree.
Prescott and Bridgewater also. And they weren't patient, they panicked for osweiler.

But Watson is better than all of them

Not including 2019, too early. But out of ALL of those QBs, which guy would you rather have over Watson? IMO, only one guy is worthy of a debate, and that's Mahomes.
Still think Clowney at 1.1 & Bridgewater at 2.1 makes too much sense. & I didn't like Bridgewater, mainly because of his size.

Not that I'd rather Bridgewater over Mahomes/Watson.

I think it's the GMs job to keep stacking the roster with talent & so far they look like they're doing a fine job. Pringle & Williams, look good.

Depth on the OL is an issue, but how many teams have one legit tackle, much less two.

I hope Watson becomes as good as Wilson

I'm still a big Jimmy G fan, but he wont be as good as he can be this yr coming back from the ACL.

It's just incompetent and inexperienced officials.

I doubt they have any hidden agenda for specific teams. If that were to be exposed, the credibility of the league would disappear with the fan base.

They've got to fix it quick, though. The optics of blown and phantom calls can certainly lead to this type of speculation.

Leg being popped back in place is exciting.
I had the same injury when I was a kid (patellar dislocation). It is VERY painful from what I remember, and my knee took more than a year to fully restabilize. I could walk without a brace after 6 weeks or so, but it was constantly re-aggravated. The doc was testing my leg after the injury and he was able to dislocate my lower leg from the upper. Not sure if its because the ligaments and tendons were stretched (obviously Im not a doctor) but it was not fun.

Ive had off and on knee problems ever since, and Im in my 40s now.

Mahomes scored 3 tds with 2 turnovers vs this d and a Lost. Brissett just dropped 4 tds with a W. The real question is Mahomes better than Brissett.

What would either kid do with indi staff lol

That Indi coach setting his qb up to win. 4tds lol. Did anyone see that coming.

Brissett no where near the talent of DW4 and mahomes

2-0 against

Brisket like 5-0 v Texans

Do you have any examples?
The offense did well today, missed some open guys (It happens) and turned the ball over. The 2 weeks prior were pretty exciting. Today you were facing a much better defense so it's unrealistic to expect a 50 pt output.

Patrick Mahomes' ankle limiting mobility
Patrick Mahomes sprained his ankle in the first game of the season and has aggravated that injury each of the past two weeks, limiting his ability to escape pressure and extend plays. This has proven to be kryptonite to a QB who may be the closest thing we have to Superman in real life. In those three games, he has noticeably changed his playing style before and after the injury. Before the injury, Mahomes threw just 71.7 percent of his passes inside the tackle box and was able to escape pressure on 37.5 percent of his hurried dropbacks, leading to an average time to throw of 2.96 seconds. After the injury occurred (or was aggravated) in those three games, his time to throw dropped to 2.60 seconds, he was only able to evade 9.1 percent of hurried dropbacks and he threw 88.9 percent of his passes from inside the tackle box. Without his mobility, Mahomes' yards per attempt dropped from 12.7 to 5.6. Hopefully, Mahomes' ankle has time to heal after Thursday's matchup with the Broncos.

I've heard reports that Mahomes audibled to a QB sneak. Sometime you just can't protect these guys from themselves. I could see Watson making the same decision. These guys are ballers to their core.
If that is true then the Chiefs organization or their beat writers out there should be trashing the National Media on ESPN/Fox Sports that went on and on about what a bad coach Andy Reid was over night. I haven't heard that myself, but these hind sight reporters have become some of the worst in the business.
