The offseason conversation was long (and frankly, boring). Will Patrick Mahomes regress? Can he keep up the MVP numbers? Every media outlet offered up their predictions and projections of what the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was expected to do in 2019, as if anyone had seen a player this blessed with skill surrounded by playmakers of this magnitude under a head coach with this creativity.
Last season, Mahomes had 50 touchdown passes and nearly 5,100 passing yards. He won the MVP by a considerable margin, picking up 41 of 50 votes in the end (the other 9 went to Drew Brees in some sort of “we feel for your MVP-less career” tribute).
