In the NFL season opener last Thursday night, after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans 34-20, quarterback Patrick Mahomes made only one deep ball in the game. Instead, the incumbent Super Bowl MVP (who left his spectacular 5,000 yards in his first year as a beginner, and only one season with 50 touchdowns) is more like a game manager in the game. The safety coverage in the short game where the Texans played was deep.
Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (Sammy Watkins) is very good. The latter leads the team by 82 yards and scores seven catches.
“What do we do [I’m] Ask, man,”
Watkins said that he believes that the coaching staff has been working with Mahomes to continue his development from an adventurous, budget-conscious rookie to a more careful veteran, and he can always maintain a chain operation.
Watkins said: “I just think he is growing.” “Being that elite quarterback.” Well… let me check it down and move on to the next game. “There is a special guy in our team.”
But Watkins also said that he believes that Mahomes is still a player and will be able to identify the right time to relax in that big game and stick to it.
Watkins said: “He is someone who knows the game now.” “He knows the coverage of the game and knows where the ball is going. If he sees something open, why not throw it away and take the ball away? You know Pat likes blockbusters.”
At the same time, Watkins will continue to practice every day to hone his craft-so that he can play anytime, anywhere.
He explained: “I think our coach has performed very well for us in training, as well as the details of the shots and the inside.” “We are like this. detailed. During practice, it becomes boring, but when you play the game, these little things will shock your mind, for example, “Hey, I need to do This one‘- Don’t worry about big problems and scoring touchdowns. I think that if we continue to do small things, we will continue to be successful. “
Watkins said that due to the way the Chiefs practiced, he was not worried about playing against the Los Angeles Chargers at the So-Fi Stadium on Sunday-fans there would be banned from participating.
“We practice so fast; [that’s] Our way of coaching. He said. “Yes, it is difficult to get there without a fan-but at the same time, we all feed each other. We create energy. We have been together for three years. We just go there to have fun and enjoy ourselves, not to do anything else, but to win and have fun. “
While answering questions from reporters, Watkins kept saying how important it is for him (and his teammates) to have fun-he said it was an important factor in his decision to restructure his contract so that he could return in 2020 team.
“[It was] Very special-not just back to the team, but the Super Bowl team,” he recalled. “Excellent staff-excellent organization. A group of people I already know-I am willing to accept. “
For Watkins, this seemed to be an important part of his decision to return.
He declared: “I think this is the most important thing in the team or any organization or anyone trying to win or become the best organization.” “I think this team is still young and we work well together. We love each other. We are not selfish-I think that is the biggest thing. Loving each other, being real, helping each other, kicking each other when needed-but at the same time we want each other to do our best.
“I have participated in many teams. This is one of the teams I can say, “Man, we love being together. “If I can dedicate my energy to everyone, man, I will do it. That is my job.”
