The Quarterback Whisperer

 -  -  1


For the past thirteen years, I have been building up my knowledge about what it takes to be an Elite Quarterback. I watch every second of every professional football game so you don’t have to, making me your personal Quarterback Whisperer.

Tom Brady and the Undefeated Patriots

In a league where the Patriots have been on top for over a decade, football fans everywhere beg for a new team to dethrone the Patriot Dynasty. The Buffalo Bills came into this week with a chip on their shoulders, attempting to knock the Patriots down a peg. Both teams arrived in Orchard Park, New York with defense on the mind, and without a loss on the season.

The game between Tom Brady’s Patriots and Josh Allen’s Bills was a slow, defensive-oriented game. When two of the best defenses are matched up, the Quarterback’s job is to control the clock and avoid turnovers, which Josh Allen struggled with. Allen had three interceptions, and when the game was on the line, he was knocked out with a concussion. The Patriots squeaked out a win, staying undefeated and on top of the AFC.

Minshew Mania is Running Wild

It is official, I think, that Gardner Minshew is a legit Starting Quarterback in the NFL. The Jaguars are going to have a decision to make following the massive contract that they gave Nick Foles in the offseason, $88 Million over the next four years. Minshew is now 2-1 as the Starting Quarterback, with his one loss on a failed Two-Point-Conversion following a clutch drive by Minshew and the Jaguars in the final seconds of the game. If Minshew can continue to win, he will force the hand of Coach Marone and have to bench their “$88 Million Dollar Man.”

Minshew went 19 for 33 for 213 yards and two touchdowns, along with a late game drive to set up Josh Lambo for the Game Winning Field Goal. I am a big believer in the Jacksonville Defense, making for Minshew to possess a great opportunity to succeed if he can limit turnovers and dominate the play clock. With Nick Foles out with his broken collarbone, don’t be surprised when Gardner Minshew becomes a Dark Horse in winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

MVP through Week 4 is…

Patrick Mahomes really showed that he is ready to challenge for the Super Bowl against the Detroit Lions. Although Mahomes did not throw for a touchdown tonight, he managed the game without any interceptions and racked up 340 total yards. Mahomes and the Chiefs are undefeated with a 4-0 record. In an exciting late Fourth Quarter Comeback, Mahomes led his team to a win against the now 2-1-1 Detroit Lions. Mahomes showed poise in his first game in a dome, but according to Patrick Mahomes on Chiefs.com, “It’s still not where I want to be.” Patrick Mahomes is not satisfied with a turnover-free game, rather he wants to improve. Mahomes is coming off of an MVP season in his first season as a starter, but coming up one play short of a Super Bowl has Mahomes and the Chiefs playing at a level that only the Patriots can compete with.
