Not excuses, just observations.
With the way Mahomes looks to escape the pocket and throw on the move, its pretty tough to gauge the competence of any one player on KCs oline, IMO.
IIRC, the dline had more impact on the game as a whole than usual because they all knew Mahomes couldn't move. I didn't see Turay stand out as an exceptional threat compared to who else was playing, so I don't know how to evaluate his performance individually.
We don't NEED an Andrew Luck talent to be a contender anymore, and honestly it feels good knowing that. We just need a guy that will throw the damn ball downfield to T.Y on the play-action! (shade intended). I've loved the idea of Carr for a while.
Lately though, I've been debating which I like more:
- Acquiring Rivers and drafting Love or Herbert to sit.
- Drafting Carr (and obviously being able to use that 1st rounder somewhere else)
I think I'm still leaning Carr. But again.. the way Chris and Frank have operated, we don't NEED elite. We'll be just fine It's still our division.
