hen their defense generates enough pressure on an opposing quarterback that he must flee the pocket 鈥?a sack http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-mitch-morse-jersey , an incomplete pass, a short run at worst.Broncos coach Vance Joseph has a very different feeling when Patrick Mahomes goes on the run.Just eight games into his professional career, the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback has already earned a reputation for being just as good outside the pocket as inside it.In fact, some of his biggest plays during the Chiefs' win in Denver a few weeks ago came when Von Miller and Co. forced him to scramble."Your plan has to trap and contain him and keep him where you want to be," Joseph said, "but you have no plan for when he breaks the pocket. That's going to be effort and want-to, and he outran most of our big guys and shook off most of our pass rushers. There's no exact plan when he's out of the pocket."That's because Mahomes has displayed a natural talent far beyond his years.You see, most young quarterbacks escape pressure and then immediately look to limit their losses. They may chuck the ball out of bounds or take off for a short gain and then slide to protect themselves.But what sets veterans such as Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady apart is that they have the uncanny ability to keep their eyes downfield Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , forcing defenses to continue covering even as they find open field. Then they have the arm strength and accuracy to deliver the ball from odd angles and off-balance positions.Joseph explained that Mahomes has those very same traits."It's very rare," he said. "He understands the pressures of when the pocket breaks, he can do damage. Most young quarterbacks are looking to gain 4 or 5 yards and slide and he is not. He's trying to make a play, and the problem with this guy is he can throw across his body left or right."So how can you combat that?" Joseph said. "You can't."The Broncos did a decent job of it in their meeting earlier this season, when they had the advantage of a home crowd. But Mahomes made some adjustments in the second half and began picking apart their secondary, helping the Chiefs rally for a 27-23 victory."As a quarterback you always feel more comfortable in the pocket," Mahomes said, "especially when I'm getting the protection I am now. But at the same time I like to get out of the pocket and give those wide receivers some time to make plays."That's because the Chiefs have some dangerous playmakers catching the ball.Whether it's tight end Travis Kelce causing matchup problems with linebackers Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , running back Kareem Hunt out of the backfield, or speedsters Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins on the outside, Mahomes knows that if he's able to give them enough time that somebody is bound to come open."Mahomes, he can make all of the throws. I think with him you just try to pick and choose whether you can make your plays," Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said."I've been watching film on everybody else and everybody else playing these guys are scared. They're not challenging them. (Hill) is just running around free. That's not how we play. When we play them, we get up, we challenge them, put hands on them and that's how we come to play. We're not coming to be scared and let guys run for free all day."The Broncos acknowledge the difficulty in that http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-anthony-sherman-jersey , though. It's easy enough to cover several players for a few seconds, but it's much more difficult when Mahomes keeps a play alive three times that long."Listen, for anything he's doing right now, he's done a nice job of being such a young guy," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, "but to have that ability to keep your eyes downfield when you're outside the pocket is a big thing. Some of that comes natural to him and (our coaches) work with him on it, but a lot of it does come natural, keeping his eyes downfield and being able to throw with accuracy."That's a gift Womens Harrison Butker Jersey ," Reid said. "Now, they work on it every day, but he does have a natural gift."Notes: Center Mitch Morse (concussion), linebacker Justin Houston (hamstring) and strong safety Eric Berry (heel) remained out of practice Thursday. Free safety Daniel Sorensen continued to work his way back onto the field after he rejoined the team from injured reserve earlier this week. Defensive changes have been the theme of the Chiefs offseason thus far.They hired a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo and signed safety Tyrann Mathieu to make an early splash in free agency. They also said farewell to three players who had played prominent roles for them in the past.Safety Eric Berry and linebacker Justin Houston were released while linebacker Dee Ford was traded to the 49ers shortly after Kansas City used the franchise tag on him. Head coach Andy Reid told Steve Wyche of NFL Media that he is “forever grateful” to the three players for what they brought to the organization, but that the moves were necessary to build a team that has a long run of success.“That’s the name of this game right now,” Reid said. “I mean, the NFL now … it’s hard to hold on to players for as long as you’d like to. I mean these are three of my favorite guys and good football players who can still do this thing. But, you have this influx of young guys Daniel Sorensen Jersey , you have this whole salary cap thing that you’ve got to try to juggle. You have to be half-a-genius to put this thing together and make it sustained.”The Chiefs had the league’s best offense in 2018 and having a less impressive defense didn’t stop them from landing the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. They fell short of a title, though, and their plan to remedy that in 2019 and beyond is to remake the defense.
