    And then you wake up from your dream and start thinking about what we could realistically do...

    I never said it was realistic, but to compete with the buzzsaw we ran into yesterday it is what we need. If KC can put together an elite roster, we should be able to as well. If we want to have chance at the SB in this division, we better.

    it's not a knee jerk reaction if it's something I saw him do all year

    Pees acted like it was still Lamar out there, he rushed 3 and kept 1 back to "spy", aka watch Mahomes complete a 20 yard pass because he had eternity to sit back and wait for someone to get open. I guess he forgot KC has a passing attack. Is it so out of line to think that collapsing the pocket around him has a better chance at working than letting him take his precious time and pick us apart?

    weird concepts I know

    Then I guess we won’t be able to beat KC...because we can’t do that. But we improve where we can. They have a ton of free agents, have to extend Mahomes, and have little cap space. They will have injuries. Anything can happen.

    They are where they are because they hit on Mahomes big time. If we hit on MM in the same way we could do what they are doing. We have to work with what we have.

    It was a good idea to try spying Mahomes. Not sure if you saw he was KCs leading rusher and converted multiple 3rd downs with his legs.

    Peas didn’t coach that bad yesterday. Unfortunately KC was too good for the D to get off the field and the O couldn’t keep the ball away from Mahomes, particularly in the second half.

    I said it in another thread that I wish he would have gambled with more blitzes throughout the game, but that would have also led to some more big plays for KC. No way to know if the gambles would have paid off.

    When you commit more players to rushing the passer you have less players in coverage. Mahomes will pick it apart.

    This was probably one of the quieter games Mahomes, Kelce, and Hill has all year long. And they still put up 35 because their offense is that good.

    Go ahead show me a team who collapsed the picket on Mahomes and slowed down that offense.

    I dont watch much college football anymore but if we could get him in the 2nd or 3rd I would be all over that. Doubt he lasts that long. We would have go dp something like trade our 1st and 3rd for 2 second rounders to get him and the edge and cb we need

    because we only sent 3 to try and pressure him, and a 4th guy giving him 5+ yards of space taking bad angles

    if you put 3 guys to try and stop a RB it isn't going to work.. why do we think it'd work vs Mahomes if he's already showed you he'll run for 10+ every time

    But you just pointed it out right there, the spy failed. Not the idea of the spy, but the player either didn’t perform or was the wrong guy.

    Personally what I saw was a continuous approach of collapsing the pocket rather than the approach used against Jackson to spread it out to force a much further outside run or selecting the correct lane up the middle but a spy to avoid.

    The difference between stopping a RB and Mahomes is pretty obvious. Mahomes had maybe 1 designed run, every other run was a pass att turned scramble. His arm is much better than Jackson, peas attempted to keep more guys in coverage for that reason and the faster WR/better WR/TE.


    Edit: guess it doesn’t matter anymore anyway.
