As an aside to your point about hype:
Not saying that Mahomes doesn't possess the accuracy, but I see most of those backyard plays being the result of the receivers being wide open by finding an opening in the zone or running deep when he starts to scramble. He has to see them, yes, but they also help him out a lot.
Jimmy G was drafted pretty high, hes not a great argument for taking a QB late in the draft or not reaching for one. the 49s gave a high second for him
someone like jordan love could be better than him too
Trust me when I say that I am not trying to rile anyone up. I am simply making a comparison. Is JB the same and Jimmy G, no. But the teams could be built very similar and JB could do what the Niners are asking of Jimmy G, YES. That was my point.
That is what I feel too.
It seems like the early Pats years with the 49ers defensive talent going against an offensive minded Colts team. We know how it went, I am leaning towards the 49ers too unless Andy Reid surprises me and pulls a Sean Payton and gains a possession with an onside kick or something, unlikely.
