This is part three of a three-part weekly film analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes. Part one: something good and something bad here Sammy Watkins Jersey , part two: something smart and something special here.I tweeted out after the Chargers game that it was the most frustrated I’d been as a Chiefs fan. While I ultimately settled on 38-10, last Thursday was still close. Here’s why:The Chiefs have not taken the most important position in football seriously enough in my lifetime. They’ve always leaned on re-tread quarterbacks. The best chance at a real, sustained Super Bowl window is to have an elite quarterback. The Chiefs didn’t even try until they traded up for Patrick Mahomes.I was there as the Chiefs blew the insurmountable lead in Indianapolis. The playoff loss streak extended for a couple years beyond that. It was depressing. But the Chiefs’ chances to hoist a Lombardi Trophy are real now.The Chiefs went from a team that needed everything to go right for them to have a real shot at a Super Bowl to a team that can expect to be in the mix every year that Mahomes is on the field. Everything is different now. My expectations have changed, so anything getting in the way of attaining home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and an opportunity to use the next few weeks to get healthy was immensely frustrating. It’s not going to take as much to go right for Mahomes to lead this team deep into the playoffs as it was always going to be with Smith, Cassel, Green, Grbac. This is different. The expectations and optimism should be too.Something improvedMahomes has really come a long way in his time in Kansas City. This clip is rich in visible improvements.Early on, the decisions Mahomes made about how and when he would escape the pocket were sporadic. He still made phenomenal plays working out of structure but sometimes he would make it harder on himself than he needed too. He’s been making better decisions as time goes on about how he is escaping. This was a good example.Mahomes elects to spin out of pressure. Even his spin-outs look better than they have in the past. They are more direct and explosive. Believe it or not, I think that matters when you’re eluding pressure. What’s more he gets his eyes quickly back into the field. That looks better than it was last year too. The time he saved with his feet and eyes helped him find Kelce working his direction. He does an excellent job getting his shoulders in a position to deliver an athletic throw to Kelce in a very tight window.Mahomes is more refined. It’s so impressive and so encouraging. Needs improvementIt wasn’t all good this week, however. Mahomes had a rough stretch in the fourth quarter of a close game.I mentioned a few times on the radio this week that the final touchdown drive for the Chiefs was a struggle, and they’re lucky that they found pay dirt. That partially fell on Mahomes. With the fourth quarter starting and the Chiefs up seven Authentic Anthony Hitchens Jersey , Mahomes had one of his rougher sequences of the season. We talked this week about the throw that Mahomes tried to hold back in what looked like a moment of hesitancy. That kicked off four plays where it looked like he was trying a little too hard. After throwing a ball well short of Demarcus Robinson/Tyreek Hill, Mahomes attempted a risky left handed throw on a third and ten that ultimately resulted in a defensive holding to extend the drive. The very next play, Mahomes throws a swing to Damien Williams that carries him out of bounds for no gain. Finally, he tries to fit a ball to Chris Conley on a run-pass option with a high difficulty level. He could’ve hit Kelce in the flat for a positive gain. The stretch very easily could’ve cost the Chiefs points. The game seems to be slowing down immensely for Mahomes, but I’m not sure the moments always are. He’ll develop that over time.What’s encouraging is immediately after this stretch, Mahomes made a great play to extend the drive. We detailed this play and more in yesterday’s article. Just like all the improvements Mahomes has made with time, these kinds of stretches will be fewer and farther between. The expectations should be changing, and the immense of amount of positive indicators and production should bring hope that Chiefs fans aren’t long for the heartbreak they’ve grown accustomed to.

Punters have gotten better each year at placing their kicks in spots that make it harder and harder to run back.Despite all that’s stacked up against them Limited Kendall Fuller Jersey , there are still a few returners who can turn the sometimes mundane kicking plays into breathtaking ones.Miami’s Jakeem Grant beat out Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill as the NFL’s top returner in 2018 in voting released Friday by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press.Grant received the honor the same week he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a leg injury.“Grant has a touchdown on a punt return and a kickoff return. Such a distinction is almost extinct thanks to the rule changes,” said Dallas-based Schuyler Dixon.Grant has excelled as an all-around returner, ranking fourth in kick return average (29.7 yards) and first on punts (16.3) before his injury. Only six players have enough returns to qualify for the league leaders in both categories.The return game is growing less important by the year. Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of all kickoffs have resulted in touchbacks, the most in NFL history, and there have been fewer punt returns through 12 weeks than at any point since the merger. Grant has two of the league’s seven return touchdowns so far this season, the fewest through 12 weeks in a non-strike year and down from a high of 31 at this point just 11 years ago.Hill, who returned a punt for a score in Week 1, received five first-place votes to the four for Grant, even though he is not used on kicks and has just 17 punt returns as he plays a bigger role on offense.“Punts against the Chiefs are the wrong time for a bathroom break, with Hill and his five career return touchdowns in three NFL seasons waiting to catch them,” Minneapolis-based Dave Campbell said. “Wait until the commercial.”In all Chad Henne Jersey Salute to Service , 21 players received at least one vote, with only Grant, Hill, Andre Roberts of the Jets and New England’s Cordarrelle Patterson appearing on all 10 ballots.Like Grant, Roberts is one of the handful of players to excel at both kicks and punts and finished third, one spot ahead of Patterson.“Roberts has been one of the few bright spots this season for a struggling Jets team,” New York-based Dennis Waszak said. “He has re-established himself as a dangerous dual threat in the return game, highlighted by a 78-yard punt return for a TD. Roberts also leads the NFL with three punt returns of 40 or more yards.”The other first-place vote went to Tennessee’s kick return specialist Darius Jennings, who ranked fifth overall and also has a return for a score.“Who? Yes, someone who came into the NFL as a rookie free agent out of Virginia and now is with his fourth different team is leading the league, averaging 34.8 yards per kickoff return Authentic Jordan Lucas Jersey ,” said Nashville-based Teresa Walker, who voted Jennings first.Rounding out the top 10 were Chicago’s Tarik Cohen, Desmond King of the Chargers, Cincinnati’s Alex Erickson, Kansas City’s kick returner Tremon Smith, and JoJo Natson of the Rams.“Almost as exciting a player as Tyreek Hill, Cohen will get more touches on offense as his career moves along,” New York-based Barry Wilner said of Cohen, who was named on nine ballots. “That’s kind of disappointing because it means fewer opportunities to show his stuff on returns.”
