Video: A detailed breakdown on how Patrick Mahomes might improve in 2020

New, comments

After acknowledging Patrick Mahomes is no doubt elite and went through injuries in 2019, The Athletic’s Samuel Gold broke down how the Chiefs quarterback might become even better in 2020.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has had the best start to his career in the history of the NFL, but when he and head coach Andy Reid are questioned about it, they consistently answer with humble responses.

Mahomes and Reid will consistently speak about how much room the 24-year-old has to improve, and that might be the most fascinating part of the 2018 MVP and 2019 Super Bowl MVP.

Enter Samuel Gold, who works for The Athletic Seattle and recently reached out to Arrowhead Pride to share his film review of the Chiefs quarterback. You can check out more of his videos on his YouTube channel.

Below is the Mahomes video — and what he had to say to preface it:

In my latest film breakdown, I took a deep dive into Patrick Mahomes’ 2019 season. Mahomes is an elite quarterback. He is incredible at creating under pressure and is objectively one of, if not the best quarterback in the entire NFL. While he’s insanely good, I wanted to look at where he can still improve to get even better. In this video, I primarily focused on I looked at accuracy due to his footwork, pocket awareness, and his decision-making to make big plays.

Note: I fully acknowledge that Mahomes dealt with injuries this season - talked about that in this video and how that realistically affected his game. I tried to purposely pick plays and concepts where the injuries were less likely to impact him. Hope you enjoy this video!
