Patrick Mahomes Calling Wrong Plays In Practice, Throws 7 INTs In 6 Days Including 3 In 15 Minute Span

The Chiefs decided to go all-in on Patrick Mahomes earlier this offseason, trading Alex Smith to the Redskins in favor of the youngster.

Early play of training camp is worrying fans though, with Mahomes tossing seven interceptions in six practices, including 3 in a 15 minute span.

“He had a few hiccups today,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said referring to the three he tossed on Wednesday.

Head coach Andy Reid came to Mahome’s defense though, saying “I want him to test the offense. If you don’t have the intestinal fortitude you’ll end up being one of those QBs that checks it down all the time,” in what sounds like a clear shot at Alex Smith.

If Mahomes’ mistakes don’t get hashed out during the preseason and continue into the regular season, the Chiefs could miss losing in the first round of the playoffs this year.
