Hometown Buffet used to have a massive Andy Reid problem, but I'm guessing the pandemic took care of that.

A massive Andy Reid lead the Chiefs to a Superb Owl win, so it depends on one's perspective.

Lamar is awesome but the evidence is really piling up that he easily unravels if the Ravens fall behind more than a score. His two playoff appearances have been disasters and the game was effectively over before halftime last night.

While I do agree that Andy Reid is massive I would say Mahomes is more of a problem.

brizzle365: same shiat they tried for week 1.

quit trying to create nonsense when there is none.

Kinda reminds me when the Astros moved to the AL all of the media was like, oh Houston and Arlington can finally deal with that budding rivalry. There was no rivalry, no one gave a shiat about the Rangers (or astros at the time). The stros, IMO were always going to be rivals with the Cardinals.

but that ship has now sailed.


Do you think that there always was a heated rivalry between the Colts and Pats before Manning/Brady?

ESPN wants nothing less than a Mahomes/Brady Owl matchup. That is the only 'rivalry' they will accept right now for Mahomes.

They were trying to get a Rodgers/Mahomes Super Bowl last year.

Yeah, yeah yeah, last night was an impressive performance but let's see them do it in the regular season when it counts against actual starters, pre-season play if fun and all but....wait, what? Those WERE the starters?

Jackson is 21-1 vs the rest of the NFL but 0-3 against the Chiefs.  I can think of 12-15 teams that would kill for that sort of problem.

How many Super Bowl victories?

You mean when you take away the threat of the run he becomes an average QB?  That can't be right, I've been assured he is an elite pocket passer.

The same as those 12-15 teams?

is there a team in the NFL that doesn't have a Reid/Mahomes/Chiefs problem right now?

"Pro football has finally embraced the obvious, more than a few decades too late( running QBs), allowing Jackson and Mahomes to turn Monday Night Football into a showcase for arguably the two most accomplished young quarterbacks ever."

This is said every few years and is always proven incorrect.  Look at RBs how long does a good one last nowadays?

Straight Outta Hate: While I do agree that Andy Reid is massive I would say Mahomes is more of a problem.


Mahomes is already dangerous as a QB with his freakish arm strength, his football IQ, his ability to improvise plays when things go bad. It's insane how well he analyzes a situation and can come up where he's seen it before on film. Add in Kelce, Hill, Watkins, and Hardmam for your TE and WRs; then toss in some competent and speedy RBs. Have Reid and Bieniemy come up with an offensive scheme that uses all that talent in creative ways.

No way a defensive coordinator can plan for all of that. The best you can do is hope that the Chiefs make a ton of mistakes and don't score.

Even worse for any team in the NFL is that the Chiefs defense is much better than before. It doesn't stand out much on paper; it's underrated. But it's pretty solid and gets the job done for all four quarters.

No doubt that Mahomes is a major problem for defenses and would be as a QB for any other team. But on the Chiefs with all the skill players on offense and the offensive genius of Reid and Bieniemy, he's even more so.

TLDR: Chiefs as a whole are a scary bunch.

I think his problem is more basic than that. He got his team close to the endzone in the beginning but they had to settle for a field goal. They knew that the Chiefs are a high scoring team. He was close enough that he should have led them to a touchdown. I think he lacks that ability. Elite QBs get the touchdown in those situations.

They'll never make me forget the Bert Jones/Matt Cavanaugh epic of '81.

I am certain that the biggest reason that Mahomes is such a threat to make that run is that he has such a great arm, can make so many unusual throws, and has so many great targets to hit.  Defenders are afraid to break off and go after them because they know he'll see something in the hole they just left opened and make a blind, leaping, double pump pass to a recurve who will get 40 yards.
