Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes says Kansas City has a chance to be a ‘really, really special offense’
The Kansas City Chiefs have made the decision this NFL offseason to change direction at the quarterback position by moving on from longtime starter Alex Smith to hand the reins over to Patrick Mahomes heading into his second campaign in the league.
Since then, there has been a tremendous amount of optimism that Mahomes can not only handle this huge responsibility but excel in this role next season. According to Nate Taylor of the Athletic, the former Texas Tech product echoed that confidence by stating that he believes that the Chiefs have an opportunity to be a “really special offense.”
Beyond Mahomes’ unique physical ability with his strong arm that could be a huge factor in helping him find success, the Chiefs have put together a highly talented group of players around him on offense. He has the reigning Offensive Rookie of Year in running back Kareem Hunt behind him along with explosive talents in the passing game in Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce, speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill, and offseason addition wideout Sammy Watkins.
There will be plenty of high-impact players around him that should only help him quickly become a productive quarterback throwing the ball. It is simply on him to take advantage of the talent that has been assembled on the offense that could see the Chiefs become one of the most potent scoring teams in the league next season.
The table is set for him to showcase that he can be the long-term answer under center while pushing Kansas City to another playoff berth and possibly further than that. It’s now on Mahomes to make the most out of the opportunity in front of him.
