There's a video a couple of years old floating around the internet that shows Patrick Mahomes http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/ron-parker-jersey , then the quarterback at Texas Tech, dropping to his knees and flinging a football 65 yards on a dare.That answered any questions about his arm strength.What wasn't answered during all those years with the Red Raiders was whether that rocket arm could deliver the ball consistently on point.Yes, Mahomes threw far fewer interceptions than most folks recall, especially given the number of pass plays Texas Tech calls each game, but most cynics figured he would toss about as many picks as touchdown passes once he arrived in the NFL.He answered that question last week against the Chargers, when he threw for 256 yards and four TDs without an interception in his first game as the Chiefs' full-time starting quarterback."He did a nice job, and now you have to back it up," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday. "He understands that. He's wired that way. Plenty of room to improve and he knows it. He's working at it."Such as sliding when he's under pressure, rather than taking a big hit. Mahomes absorbed far too many of those against the Chargers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers' ferocious defense no doubt is licking its chops at the thought of delivering another crunching blow on Sunday.But when it comes to throwing passes into double coverage, or taking a gamble that results in a costly turnover, at least for one week Mahomes was perfect.And it's hard to get much better than perfect."Good and bad, you lean from both of those. But he made some nice decisions," Reid said. "There's some things he can go back and look at and say http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/mitchell-schwartz-jersey , 'I should have gone there.' That's in the memory bank and he's building that file. I thought he did a good job of not throwing it to them, but there are some things he could do better against certain looks."Reid wouldn't go into details, of course, lest he gives the Steelers any unnecessary advantage. But whether it was a quick-flip pass to Tyreek Hill that resulted in a long touchdown, or a touch throw down the sideline to Anthony Sherman for another score, Mahomes never put the ball in too much danger.More than all those throws he made, it was the throws he didn't make in the 38-28 victory that helped Mahomes win this season's first AFC offensive player of the week award."It helped that I had a lot of guys that played well for us in the offense," Mahomes said. "Tyreek had a great game, the offensive line played really well. I'm glad I got the honor, but it was kind of an offensive unit honor."It's hard to gauge the growth in Mahomes from last year to this year, given how little he played as a rookie. But offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz said it's evident in all aspects of his game, whether it was the way Mahomes approached offseason workouts or the way he operates in the classroom."There's definitely a comfortability with everything," Schwartz said. "There's been a huge progression from him and it's been cool to see."Just as Reid said, though http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/allen-bailey-jersey , now Mahomes needs to back up his Week 1 performance.The Steelers present a much more complex test for Mahomes with a variety of disguised blitzes that have frustrated Chiefs quarterbacks for years.Even the cerebral Alex Smith, the consummate game-manager quarterback, struggled to have much success against Pittsburgh during his years in Kansas City."I feel like I get better and better with blitz protections every week. It helps that we have good game plans," Mahomes said. "I know Pittsburgh does a ton of that stuff, that's kind of their thing, but we've played them a lot the last few years, so we kind of know what to expect."Notes: Eric Berry remained out of practice Wednesday. The team had described his injury as a heel issue in training camp, but Reid clarified that it is Berry's Achilles tendon causing issues. The star safety tore his Achilles tendon last season. "Just being cautious with it," Reid said. "We have full trust in him. He's always very honest with us. We want him there for the long haul. We're trying to make sure everything is right there." ... LB Ben Niemann (hamstring) also did not practice Wednesday. KANSAS CITY, Mo.聽 鈥?Patrick Mahomes walked off the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday with another record on his resume and the Kansas City Chiefs another win toward earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs.He didn’t have much chance to savor any of it.Mahomes quickly learned that the stepfather of his longtime girlfriend, Brittany Matthews, had died after a medical emergency during the game. Mahomes quickly skipped out on the postgame celebration and joined Matthews, who posted the sobering news on her social media accounts that evening.“Today is a day I will never forget,” she wrote in the caption of a photo. “Directly after this picture I sprinted to the front entrance to see my stepdad passed out! He did not come back from this and he was called to heaven today! I KNOW 100 (percent) he is so happy up there with his kids looking down on us Authentic Tyreek Hill Jersey , cheering loud that his Chiefs won today!”Mahomes is not expected to miss any preparation for Monday night’s showdown with the Rams in Los Angeles, though Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he would be fine if it happens.The Chiefs were off Tuesday and Wednesday, giving Mahomes and his family time to cope.“We’re sorry to hear about what took place,” Reid said. “Prayers and blessings are with the family. I talked to Patrick and they’re doing well for the circumstances that took place. As they go through this mourning period our thoughts and prayers are with them.”This season has already been a whirlwind for Mahomes, who was thrust into the starting job after the trade of Alex Smith to Washington and whose ability was justifiably questioned.He was a product of the Texas Tech offensive system. His big arm was tempered by problems with his accuracy. He had leadership abilities, but could they translate from college to the NFL?Mahomes has answered all those questions every week.He threw six touchdown passes in a game. He led the Chiefs to tough road wins over the Chargers and Steelers, and went toe-to-toe with Tom Brady in New England. He has thrown so few interceptions that any questions about his decision-making have been left in September.With two more TD passes against the Cardinals, he broke the franchise single-season record of 30 that Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson set during the 1964 season 鈥?with six games to go.“Pat is just a competitor,” Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt said, “and a great guy and he’s always trying to win. We needed all 31 of those touchdowns and he got them.”Well, the Chiefs probably didn’t need all of them.The Chiefs have scored 353 points through their first 10 games, the most in club history, and have been held to fewer than 30 only twice. Three times they’ve scored more than 40, including their 43-40 loss to the Patriots that remains the only blemish on their record.To put into perspective just how good Mahomes has been this season Womens Eric Murray Jersey , consider this: He threw for 249 yards against the Cardinals for a passer rating of 125.4, the eighth time this season he’s been over 100.0 鈥?the third most in a single season in franchise history.Yet some people considered the end of his streak of eight consecutive 300-yard passing games to be a relative disappointment, as if he failed to live up to some otherworldly expectation.His teammates certainly weren’t in that camp.“That’s something I’d do on ‘Madden,'” wide receiver Tyreek Hill said of Mahomes’ TD record. “For him to come in and do that, that’s amazing. A lot of people doubted him, saying he wasn’t going to do this or wasn’t going to do that. He’s shutting a lot of people up right now and I’m proud of him. He’s just got to continue to move forward and stay humble. He’ll be all right.”He’s been far better than that this season.Oddsmakers in Las Vegas have made the 23-year-old Mahomes the front-runner to win the league’s MVP award, ahead of Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Rams running back Todd Gurley. And if he keeps going at his current rate, he will no doubt continue to rewrite the Chiefs record book.Maybe even the page that lists the Chiefs’ rather unimpressive postseason history.“Listen, he’s had a heck of a year,” Reid said. “Comes out every day bringing energy and he makes sure that he has his things in order. When he does that, and he’s got a lot on his plate as far as responsibility goes to run that offense, and he takes care of that. He’s in a position where he can make everyone better around him, and he’s doing that. I’m proud of him.”
