Much like a Krauthammer into an empty pool, let’s dive straight in. TO THE GAME!
Boy oh boy. I wonder how everybody’s fave 2nd year phenom qb will do going into the confines of Denver for the first time. This should be a real test for him, right? Well, Johnny Football-Come-Lately’s, I’ll have you know that a certain Mr. Mahomes started a meaningless (KC had already clinched a playoff spot) game in week 17 last year in Denver and ended up winning 27-24 with a bunch of second-teamers. Oof! That sure ain’t bode well for tonight. After all, this kid is averaging 4.333333333 TDs per game and looks a wee bit unstoppable. Factor in that in the last five games vs. Denver, Andy Reid and company (led by Alex Smith) have averaged 30 points vs. dem Broncs.
The question is begged-how can the Broncs possibly pull this monkey out of the cage? Mahomes hasn’t seen the man coverage that Denver plays so perhaps there’ll be an adjustment phase. Chubbs and chicken-chaser Miller must force pressure from the edges so that Mahomes forces passes. But he’s already shown he can throw the short drop pass. Okay, now what? Perhaps rook rb’s Freeman and Lindsay slow down the pace of the game. Maybe the No Housefly Zone gets a pic or two or three. There’s always the possibility that qb Keenum racks up more yards than his counterpart. Just this year I’ve seen stranger things happen. See how I tied that all together in one big beautiful bow?
Get to doing the finger exercises.
