Reasons to not feel so bad about Patrick Mahomes

Recommended Posts

When Pat Mahomes was lighting the world on fire last year, I found myself extremely aggravated that we didn't pick him at #10 in the 2017 NFL draft.

This year, I've found peace with the idea that he's not on our team and here are the top 10 reasons why:

 

1. With the first pick in the 2017 draft, the Cleveland Browns (who needed a QB) didn't take Mahomes.

2. With the second pick in the draft, the Chicago Bears TRADED UP to take Mitch Trubisky.

3. With the fourth pick in the draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who needed a QB, took Leonard Fournette.

4. With the fifth pick in the draft, the Tennessee Titans stuck with Marcus Mariotta and took Corey Davis instead.

5. With the sixth pick in the draft, the Jets (lol), who needed a QB, took Jamal Adams

6. With the 7th pick in the draft, the Chargers took Mike Williams instead of an heir to Phil Rivers.

7. With the 9th pick in the draft, the Bengals picked John Ross instead of Patrick Mahomes.

8. All of these same teams ALSO passed on Deshaun Watson.

9. Yes, we traded down and didn't get Mahomes, but we DID get Tre White and a future first round pick.

10. That future first round pick (combined with others) turned into Josh Allen, who at the very least has more upside at QB than anyone we've had in a long time.

 

Hope this makes you all feel a little better as well.

I like me some Josh Allen, but he currently isn't the dime that P-M is. 

Josh is a fun "7" currently. I'll take a "10" all day and night (crazy dimes need not apply).

I've never felt bad about Patrick Mahomes.

 

I wanted the Bills to trade down in the Draft that year. Once they did, I was the loudest and happiest Bills fan in Philadelphia.

GO BILLS!!!

I’d say Allen is a crazy 7. You never know what you’ll get.

His mere existence rid us of Zerovolt AND Jeffysmagic.  All hail Mahomes!!!

 

Zerovoltz is still around.  Jeffismagic is gone; after the Bills passed on Mahomes, he couldn't take it any more and left after the draft.  I remember the non stop lobbying for Mahomes...just relentless.

You have given this a lot of thought.  I assume the is the final stage of grief, acceptance.

If Allen is great then passing on Mahomes won’t be a big deal. If not then it’ll be like passing on Russell Wilson for TJ Graham.

I quit thinking about Mahomes after we didn't draft him, and quite frankly I didn't think about him that much beforehand. Neither did most people or he would've been a consensus #1.

If the primary goal is to be better than the Browns, Bears, Jaguars. Titans, Jet, Chargers and Bengals, then I say Mission Accomplished.

Mahomes was an draft enigma.....plenty were in favor of drafting him because of his collegiate performance(s)......but there were plenty who said "an Air Raid QB NEVER makes it in the NFL" as if he was from a leper colony.....so his draft journey began......Andy gambles and he sits behind Smith for a year.....and in year 2 he lights the world "on fire", and good for him.....wasn't Mariota from a similar spread with differing nuances?....and he has worked out how?......so in year 2, Mahomes defied most odds....as did the 6th round Brady...OR....the 3rd round Montana....yet Whaley FAILED for blowing the Mahomes pick.....um right......needed Windex for his crystal ball I suppose....a few bumps 'n bruises in year 3?...as expected as opposing DC's get acclimated to his game...but he is still exciting to watch IMO.......

You started a thread about Patrick Mahomes on a Buffalo Bills fan site.

 

In the original post, you say, "I found myself extremely aggravated that we didn't pick him at #10 in the 2017 NFL draft."

 

And you don't want this to turn into a Mahomes vs. Allen thread.

 

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight ....

The only time I feel bad about Patrick Mahomes is when someone here feels the need to start a new Patrick Mahomes thread.....

I find this sort of rationalization highly irregular.

 

if you can’t hate the team missing drafting Patrick Mahomes, how can you possibly hate hate josh, the front office, the punter, the linebacker coach, the new free agents, the color rush jerseys, the kick off tee Haushka uses, the one buffalo app... and so on????

 

 

i find your lack of outrage.... outrageous 😎
