Patrick Mahomes Says He and Teammates “Have Been Back and We Have Been Working” | ArrowheadReport

Mahomes’ tweet a few hours later would indicate that he has gotten back to Kansas City from Texas and that some amount of on-field workouts have gotten back into the rotation for Mahomes and at least some of the pass-catchers.

Report: NFL Coaches Could Return to Team Facilities Next Week, Hold Minicamps in June |

A source told Yahoo Sports that the NFL is relying on California Gov. Gavin Newsom to allow to practice in order for the league to be fully functioning at minicamps. With Newsom’s permission, it would allow the NFL to hold minicamps in June, take a break and set the dates for training camps.

ESPN Computer Runs 20,000 Simulations & Predicts The Super Bowl LV Champion | TotalSports

“Buoyed by what FPI considers to be easily the best offense in football, the Chiefs are more than a touchdown better than an average NFL team and more than a point better than the second-best team in the league, the Baltimore Ravens. That strong rating fueled the Chiefs to a 21% chance to win the Super Bowl, which makes them the second-largest preseason favorite since we began projections in 2015, behind only the 2017 New England Patriots (32%). The Chiefs were our preseason favorite last season too, with a 15% chance to win it all.”

Five rookies who most need to succeed in Year 1: Heat on Chiefs LB |

As much as people touted all the things Kansas City’s first-round pick, running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, will do in Andy Reid’s high-octane offense, Gay is the player who will determine how successful this Chiefs draft class really is. The first thing to know is that the former Mississippi State product can flat-out fly. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine (second-best time among linebackers) and he plays just as fast when he’s on the field. It’s no secret that Kansas City’s major weakness on defense was at linebacker, where it lacked athleticism and dynamic playmaking ability. Gay can offset those troubles because he’s known for his range, blitzing and coverage potential.

Chiefs 2021 salary cap health projected among worst in NFL | ChiefsWire

Ultimately, Over The Cap’s average ranks K.C. with the second-worst salary cap health in the NFL for 2021 with the New Orleans Saints as the worst. Fitzgerald considers the Chiefs a “Tier 4” team in his rankings, but it seems like things can be easily rectified for Kansas City. They’ll have to make some tough cuts, part with some big named free agents and make progress in the draft and undrafted free agency. They likely won’t be active players in the free-agent market aside from some one-year deals like we saw in 2020.

What was Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ favorite memory from Super Bowl LIV? | ChiefsWire

“I think my favorite memory was, honestly, after the game — right after the game,” Mahomes said. “I mean, obviously there were so many big plays that happened. But getting to go to Coach Reid and celebrate with him — you could see the emotion and all of that hard work paying off. And he and his family were already on the field. Just taking in that moment right there, I think that is the memory that will last with me forever. Hopefully, we’ll get a few more of those memories.”

Why the NFL’s planning for fans in stadiums is the right move | FoxSports

“We’re planning for full stadiums,” Vincent told NBC Sports, “until the medical community tells us otherwise. Now, remember when we’re talking. We’re talking about September … August, September. So, there’s a lot that can happen here. So, we’re planning for full stadiums.”

@JamesPalmerTV @ArrowheadGuys The structure of the deal makes it pretty likely that he will never be the top paid QB in a given year. $500m is large, but understanding how the contract breaks down is important.

Local Chiefs Reporters:

If you are still seeking Patrick Mahomes content you need to listen to the podcast @ChiefsReporter did with @bobbystroupe today. One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. Insightful discussion on the work, training and techniques that go into making #15 great. #ChiefsKingdom

Really enjoyed @ChiefsReporter’s interview with Mahomes’ trainer @bobbystroupe on the latest podcast. Wonderful insight into Pat’s work ethic and drive

A special @PatrickMahomes’ edition of “In the Trenches” as we catch up with longtime trainer and friend, @bobbystroupe, who shares his perspective of watching Mahomes develop over the years as an athlete (and person).

I know that I'm going to write about Chris Jones for freak play Friday... I just don't know what play. There are so many that are absurd.

I keep seeing articles about how much Lamar Jackson is improving in his passing accuracy. They’re posting videos showing him passing.

A lot of people don’t know this about me, but I’m actually a really accurate passer too. Really really good.

Especially when I don’t have 3 or more 300lb guys breathing down my neck.

From the headline and blurb I can’t tell if that 20k is runs through the seasons or games, for KC vs the field the results feel about right. It’s the ’17 Pats that feels like the statistical outlier here. No doubt those models were naturally weighted in favor of them based on accumulated past performance to produce that outcome. Not dishonesty, really, just careless system design that lacked proper boundaries. Perfect storm, a lot of coincidence meets a little incompetence.

And this, class, is why we never blindly trust the numbers, statistical or otherwise. It’s also an example of why developing your estimation skills is important, because it helps you get a feel for relative scales and outcomes in such numbers. Meanwhile, good night, Kingdom community, I wish all of you a bright day going forward, especially any who are angry with me right now. Let the sun shine upon everyone today.
