Dan And Tony Discuss Hardman and the Future Offense with Mahomes

 18 replies

Dan and Tony discuss how the Chiefs might attempt to replace the production of Tyreek Hill.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Do you think Hardman is good? I’m not crazy right? The potential is clear I think.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: I think in Andy’s offense he’s going to be fine.  Andy’s not going to ask him to go across the middle and get lit up. He’s going to scheme him open, where he can use his speed to get behind the coverage and take the ball to the house.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Yeah that’s most likely what happens. And realistically 4-5 TD’s would be a great rookie year for him but some people think he’s going to carry the offensive load. I’m high on him but still can’t see that.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Its hard to project what he does IMO until we see how defenses prioritize coverage against the Chiefs’ offense. I could see him starting out hot because we know Andy’s gonna have some cute shit planned for him, and DC’s are going to be focused on Kelce & Watkins to start the year out. So he’s going have some opportunities to put fools…In Harms Way 😈😈😈

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Hahaha yeah you’re right about that. We are gonna see some ankle breaks for sure.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Especially if he’s getting single coverage early.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Teams can’t run zone or man coverage. They are screwed either way. Even with the receivers they have.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: I think we’ll be alright.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: I’m really hoping Pringle is everything I heard about. He’s got sub 4.5 speed and good hands. Over 6 feet, he’s he prototypical WR in size. Just want to see him in a real role.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: I think we’ll be fine even without Hill. If the defense is top 15 then we can afford some regression on passing offense in yards and TD’s. Its about situational football in my opinion.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Yeah Mahomes is going to get better at marching down the field, instead of launching down the field.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Agreed. I think he’ll do better taking what the defense gives him which will translate to fewer 3rd and longs. That should result in both sustaining more drives and having longer drives. I expect the offense and defense to play complementary football this year.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: I was about to say that. I agree.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Definitely going to be an interesting season…

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: Yeah. I do think the loss of Hill is going to hamper production but we could see more Time of Possession for sure like you said.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Oh it will be a noticeable decline in statistical production, but I don’t think it has much impact on the win/loss record due to complimentary football. But that is IF Watkins can stay healthy. And that’s a big IF.

Dan Harms (f16mech.dh@gmail.com)

Dan: I pray for that man lol.

Anthony S (ta2tony21@gmail.com)

Anthony: Need to get him a case of ‘tussin.

man oh man I hope we see long TIME CONSUMING drives … I mean, love the “quick strike” 70 yards in the air TD but like DUDE! seriously, the D has to have a chance to rest … and Hardman is gonna be just fine

Couple of things I see with Hardman, is how strong he is as a runner at his size, and how weak he looks when he’s trying to make a catch in any kind of contested situation.

So, I think he’s going to get a lot of screens and swing passes. Opportunities to make an open, easy catch and then outrun everybody. Of course we’ll send him downfield on fly routes, but I think his bread-n-butter is going to be as a significant upgrade over DAT and Bert on those designed YAC plays.

With Mahomes anything is possible.

I think it’s a mistake to expect a rookie to replace a Top-5 (or better) WR. I get it that’s he’s like the shiny new toy and all, but those are extremely high expectations and anything short of that becomes failure. Besides, I think Hill plays this year.

Back when we all assumed he was going to be cut.
