What a game!! Definitely one of the best I can remember. It seemed like the 49er’s rushing game was bordering on unstoppable then KC’s defense came up with big stops. (Kudos to Steve Spagnoulo who apparently made some great adjustments on the fly.) Mahomes showed amazing poise, discipline and leadership as he didn’t get too rattled after throwing 2 INTs and guided his offense down the field to take the lead. His post-game interview was classy and humble as expected. With that being said, people need to stop comparing him to Tom Brady because he isn’t, at least not at this point. Mahomes does have an incredibly bright future and I expect to see him with more than one ring on his hands. The scary part is KC has areas where they can improve. With the upcoming draft and free agency to bolster both sides of the ball, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if they are playing in the AFC championship game next season.
This morning some talking heads are calling for SF to get another QB. I don’t think you can hang it all on Garoppolo though I don’t think he’s even close to Mahomes caliber. They deified him after the 2017 season because he had a string of wins. I don’t think he’s a guy who can carry the team on his back like Rodgers, Brady, et al have done in the past, but he’s not Blake Bortles either.
The XFL starts up next weekend. I’ll be watching in hopes the play will be good enough to keep me entertained through the end of April.February 3, 2020 at 2:00 pm #56861PattiParticipant
in my ear….."If you can’t say something nice, Patsy (she always called me Patsy), keep your mouth shut."
I hear you granny. I love you, and you have a nice day up there!February 3, 2020 at 3:00 pm #56862caseyParticipant
with Coach Kyle’s approach. The Niners’ game all year was a pound em w/their terrific ground attack. They had 31 pass plays – I realize in the last 5 minutes they had to put it in the air but the writing was on the wall for me on that second and 5 with 6 minutes to go and Jimmy G passed the next two plays. Geesh, you get 5 on first down, why do that when you keep the clock moving as well?
By now everyone should know leads are nothing for Pat M and Co no matter how little time left! If this kid stays healthy you could be looking at another all time great.
Congrats to Andy Reid – he finally got one!February 4, 2020 at 1:18 pm #56866
It’s the old "dance with the one who brought you" approach. Since I was rooting for KC it didn’t bother me, otherwise I would have been yelling at the TV.February 4, 2020 at 1:19 pm #56867
