***OFFICIAL Patrick Mahomes GIF thread***

AKA GIF'D UP: Franchise QB Edition.

Complete with smooth, clean, CP-exclusive GIFs and bullshit analysis from the guy who stroked off Cassel.

Play 1: A beautiful strike, albeit slightly underthrown, that got called back.

Spoiler!


What I like about this play: The All-22 shows no one really open, and a pass rusher right in Mahomes face. He still made the throw.

Spoiler!



Play 2: A fine intermediate throw, thrown with incredible anticipation.

Spoiler!


What I like about this play: the anticipation on this throw is something we don't even see from he-who-shall-not-be-named-in-this-thread. This is the frame right before Mahomes begins his throwing motion. He waits any longer and it might be picked.

Spoiler!


Play 3: Mahomes escapes pressure and comes 6 inches from a TD pass.

Spoiler!


What I like about this play: Mahomes shows great pocket presence, but he isn't running just to run like you-know-who. He's running to throw, and attempting a throw certain quarterbacks would never even think of. Additionally, the fact he avoids a sack here sets up a TD later.

Look how close this was to a TD:

Spoiler!


Play 4: Mahomes throws with incredible anticipation again, almost comes up with a TD, gets a flag anyway.

Spoiler!


What I like about this play: This is even better anticipation than the intermediate throw we saw earlier. The WR hasn't even cleared coverage when Mahomes starts his throwing motion. I'm fairly floored a rookie QB in his first game attempted this throw.

Spoiler!


Play 5: TOUCHDOWN KANSAS CITY

Spoiler!


What I like about this play: Mahomes is running to throw all the way. He's manipulating the defense into giving him a crack to throw. And it's just a crack, because as people have pointed out, if he doesn't throw it high it's probably a pick. Sir-not-appearing-in-this-thread hasn't made a throw like this into the end zone in four years.

The frame where Mahomes decides to release:

Spoiler!


You know what you need to throw TDs in the NFL? BRASS BALLS.

Go and do likewise, starter. The touchdown's out there, you pick it up, it's yours. You don't--I have no sympathy for you. You wanna go out on those plays tonight and score, score, it's yours. If not you're going to be shining my pads.
