Re: Mahomes went off 


So we have QB depth and our defense is forcing turnovers?

Good news all around.

Re: Mahomes went off 


Welp....not sure what to think here. If Mahomes had 5 TDs against 1st String D...and Webb struggled. Yikes. We all know for a fact that Webb will start week 1..but hopefully this means that Mahomes can get his own package. Maybe run a little zone read?

Re: Mahomes went off 


I imagine our defense playing against Webb would be easier for them because Webb gets more reps, and therefore the defense knows him better.

Mahomes went against 1st or 2nd team defense?

Defense is always the problem at Tech not O.

Re: Mahomes went off 


This is why I'm not worried so much about this. Around this time last year, weren't people going off about how much "better" Mayfield was in fall camp? Webb had been here since January (still talking 2013) and looked amazing in the spring game when he was still new in the eyes of the defenders.

#TexasTech DC Matt Wallerstedt said his unit had 6 good series to start Sun scrimmage, then faded. But "liked the energy, liked the effort."

Webb isn't struggling. Mahomes has looked great, the defense has played well, especially the 1's. More later.

Re: Mahomes went off 


I love how Webb throwing a pick 6 means that he struggled.  How much different if that tweet was  "Webb 24/25 for 278yds 4 TD's and a pick 6." 

Context is important...

Re: Mahomes went off 


So our 2nd string D is terrible, 1st string D is great, Mahomes is making a push, while Webb is sliding? Or are we just getting part of the picture? I guess we'll find out Aug 30th.

Got to love only finding about what happened in a scrimmage by asking the HC what happened.

Yeah, Webb is a freak as far as I'm concerned, but it won't be the last time he throws an int, I'll bet. I would hardly characterize it as struggling.

Re: Mahomes went off 


It's no secret that I wasn't sold on Webb as the starting QB before last season. I had just seen too many boneheaded moments from his senior season to believe he could compete at Tech. As the season went on, he started to sway me. The first half of the Holiday Bowl was fantastic (2nd half was meh)  and almost put me over the edge with him, but I still have a little voice in my head that casts doubt on him being the man. I see him doing great things, and I hear KK talk about him, so I really want to be wrong about him. I'm almost there, but if Mahomes wants to be the man, I'm ok with that too. biggrin

Extending plays, Kliff loves that stuff. Webb's the man though. He's got to be, I can't do another year like last year...
