So why did the Kansas City Chiefs deal Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins? After all, Smith had just recorded his best statistical season to date leading the Chiefs into the playoffs in 2017. Yet Andy Reid and company felt confident in moving on to second year pro Patrick Mahomes. Now you and I and the entire NFL knows why.
The Texas tech product has made the league his personal playground through two weeks of the 2018 season. Mahomes has thrown TEN touchdown passes in two games, including SIX last weekend at Pittsburgh! He is doing to pro football what Tua is doing to the college game.
