It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true , then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!So in that spirit, some of the Canal Street Chronicles writers were asked to share with me a bold prediction or two for the Week 11 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: a battle in the dome against the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. This is their chance to look brilliant!Here are a few of the bold predictions provided by some of the contributors at Canal Street Chronicles:22 Goes Ham Again - Mark Ingram has second 100 yard game of the season and scores two TDs. (Bob)Pick City - Marshon Lattimore records his first interception of the year. (Brenden)Secondary Holds - Saints defense keeps all Eagles WRs under 100 yards as a unit. (Butler) AK-41 to the House- Alvin Kamara scores on a punt return. (Bob)New Orleans Special - Teddy Bridgewater passes for a TD. (Chad)Dez Who? - Brandon Marshall scores a touchdown. (Bob)Here are my three bold predictions for the game:Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty ImagesDrew Brees catches a pass.Michael Thomas is not the Saints-leading receiver.Saints defense sacks Wentz four times.As a fun aside, I have an Eagles (@mcmillaneli on Twitter) fan chime in with his own bold predictions:Eagles sack Brees four times in the game, quadrupling their total from the previous four weeks combined.Golden Tate goes for 100+ yards and a TD.Eagles win.So there are some of our bold predictions for the game. What are yours? Friday’s PFT Live featured renewed praise for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who had the best statistical performance of his career on Thursday night. Which quickly became a question of whether which quarterback a team should prefer: Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes.Mahomes was the no-brainer choice in a Twitter poll. And he also was the no-brainer choice for the Chiefs on draft day 2017.Input received from multiple sources makes it clear that the pre-draft work led to the inescapable conclusion that Mahomes was the far better prospect. As one source put it, Mahomes was viewed as a once-in-20-years prospect.The most obvious difference between Mahomes and Watson, as another source put it, came from Mahomes’ accuracy on deep throws and overall arm velocity demonstrated by Mahomes. Another big factor was Mahomes’ ability to make so-called “funny body” throws, finding a way to deliver the ball with the desired oomph and accuracy even when on the run or otherwise not able to use his legs or core to generate force on the throw.“He can make any throw off platform or without generating lower body force,” another source said. “Freaky.”That’s not a knock on Watson. He was regarded as a “fantastic kid” with a good skill set and good college game film. But the thinking was that Mahomes is a rare talent Cameron Meredith Jersey , the best player in the draft, possessing everything the Chiefs wanted in a quarterback: Arm strength, awareness, accuracy, mobility, playmaking, intelligence, etc.Mahomes also demonstrated a significant gap over Watson by the way he quickly absorbed and regurgitated information regarding plays and concepts.It’s unclear why none of the quarterback-needy teams in picking in the first nine that year (or the Bills, who traded out of the tenth spot) came to that same conclusion, or why the media never caught on to the perception that Mahomes was regarded by multiple coaches who know a thing or two about quarterbacks as the best player in the draft. The West Coast cabal was all over Mahomes, with men like Chiefs coach Andy Reid Rick Leonard Color Rush Jersey , Saints coach Sean Payton, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy keenly aware of the things Mahomes could do at the next level.And it would have been very interesting to see how things would have played out in New Orleans if the Chiefs hadn’t made the move up to No. 10, one spot ahead of the Saints. Per a source who was present at the time, Saints starting quarterback Drew Brees and a couple of guests showed up unexpectedly in the Saints draft room not long before the Saints were due to be on the clock, and while Mahomes was still on the board. According to the source, the situation prompted Payton to give Brees a head’s up that the pick could indeed be a quarterback.If the pick had been Mahomes, it’s entirely possible that he would be getting ready to play for the Saints tonight at Minnesota, and that Brees would have been playing for someone else this year.Possibly, Brees would have been playing the Vikings.
