    I feel like if you switch the two on teams Watson would be considered better. Mahomes really is great but he has playmakers everywhere on the offensive end.

    mahomes, alex smith couldn’t make those weapons work. mahomes can.

    Sas. Shut up. What Patrick does, outside the pocket is not design. The throws he makes, Across his body. Running in the opposite direction. No look That is not coaching.

    Here's a kicker:If the QBs in question switched teams, would Mahomes have such great numbers? Would Watson blow the roof off the stats? If the answer to either is "no", then you have your answer as to who is more valuable. IJS

    Deshaun Watson has to coach as well as play so I give it to #4

    Stephan A and marcus argument is all predicated on replacing pat Mahomes with Alex smith and the chiefs would still be in the playoffs, so the same with Watson and so would the Texans. Smith is still a amazing QB and can carry any team

    We all arguing about Watson vs Mahomes but as a Texans fan let me tell you some 😂😂 aren’t we and the Chiefs happy that the fucking Bears passed up on these 2 monsters to take a dude that played one good season. I know today they were pulling out their hair while we were watching the next Brady vs Manning 2.0.

    Every case they made for watson is the same for mahomes. Hes way better than alex smith. If he missed the year then the chiefs wouldn’t make the playoffs

    Today, Magic Mahomes showed that when the Chiefs are down 21-0, the chiefs can explode and put up 50 points!! What I hate is when they r like Oo Mahomes has this or that player, Mahomes is still special and stop making reasons why u ( Stephen A or skippy doe I day skip bay less) can’t except that Mahomes is a badddddddd dude.

    Both of these guys are good but I don’t particularly like Mahomes. I had the unpleasant experience of meeting his girlfriend. I was at an event of mostly Princeton Alumni as well as current students, and his girlfriend was at a different event in the same building. She actually tried to have security make everyone get off an elevator and clear a lobby because some kids heckled her. She was nasty, and she made disparaging comments to the students calling them poor, and then bragged about her car.

    It’s crazy how max did not even answer the question or comprehend it. The question was which quarter black is more valuable to their team! Not which qb is better or which one you rather have! 🤦🏽‍♂️ it’s clearly Watson. Mahomes is better but not more valuable to his team then Watson is to his.

    IMO Watson not as good a runner as Lamar not as good a thrower as Mahomes but he’s great at both

    Also max srsly needs to stop shifting the topic. This isn't bout stats idiot. ITS bout who is MORE valuable. Meaning which QB carries the most weight for the team.

    This rivalry is soon to be the greatest of all time. But for now it still belongs to Peyton vs Brady.
