Former Chiefs teammate disrespects Patrick Mahomes with ridiculous comparison
Juan Thornhill received two Tremendous Bowls with the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes earlier than cashing in with the Cleveland Browns this offseason. Now, he is already gassing up his new quarterback.
Deshaun Watson and the Browns have excessive expectations heading into this season. But, Watson hasn’t performed a lot aggressive soccer the previous few years, and regardless of what his contract may counsel, there are certain to be some rising pains. Watson didn’t look productive in simply six video games final yr after his suspension, main the Browns to a 3-3 report with a 7;5 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
The final time Watson has performed something near a full slate of video games is 2020, when he made the Professional Bowl. He nonetheless has that expertise in him, certainly, however the early coaching camp critiques have not been optimistic. With that in thoughts, forgive me for being just a little callous at options he is something near the participant Patrick Mahomes is.
Exhausting move. In 2020, Mahomes and Watson have been arguably on the identical tier, however the latter took himself off the NFL’s quarterback Mount Rushmore when he missed the higher a part of two seasons, and was accused of sexual assault.
Watson is anticipated to begin in opposition to the Chiefs within the Browns remaining preseason recreation, the place he’ll play a drive or two earlier than being eliminated for Josh Dobbs and others. Watson believes Cleveland has made nice strides in camp, and going through off in opposition to the Eagles in joint practices has solely helped issues.
“We maintain including on and taking a step ahead day by day,” Watson mentioned. “We all know we aren’t all the way in which there but, and we should not be. It is small particulars within the offense we want to work on. Particularly going in opposition to a superb Philadelphia protection.”
Watson will not be Mahomes. He solely must be himself. Contemplating what the Browns are used to at QB, that’ll be greater than sufficient.
