If we've learned anything about the last 20 years of Andy Reid as a play caller, it's that he loves to chuck the ball downfield. If we've learned anything about Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and 2018 MVP Patrick Mahomes, it's that he has a howitzer for right arm and loves the go route.
Now that Tyreek Hill will no longer face legal charges in his child abuse case, it seems he will soon pair with equally speedy Georgia rookie Mecole Hardman out wide, the man once thought to be his immediate replacement.
The 1st time the @Chiefs new WR/KR Mecole Hardman has reminded me of Tyreek Hill (on the field): speed and twitchiness.— Ladner Morse (@Laddiemorse) May 2, 2019

Buckle up, folks. This is going to be fun.
With Travis Kelce now firmly the best tight end in the league, the trio of him, Hardman, and Hill presents the deepest group of skill position players in the gme. With Sammy Watkins also able to blow by corners out wide and Damian Williams a steady presence in the backfield, there is no glaring weakness in this offense, even without Chris Conley and Kareem Hunt.
Pair that with the evil genius that is Reid on the sidelines and a quarterback in Mahomes who can throw a ball 80 yards with the effortlessness of a javelin thrower, and you can expect a lot of prevent defenses against this group of stallions the Chiefs have.
While the defense will determine how far this team will go, Kansas City will have NO problem putting points on the board in the 2019 season, and will quickly regroup after receiving the likely news of Hill's return.
