On Tuesday, former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marc Boerigter joined the Arrowhead Addict podcast and showcased his favorite quality in Patrick Mahomes.
Patrick Mahomes does the left-handed highlight reels and no-look passes. But it’s the ones we see more often, the mind-blowing arm angles, that have caught the attention of at least one former player.
On Tuesday afternoon, former Kansas City Chiefs receiver Marc Boerigter joined the Arrowhead Addict Podcast and covered a wide range of topics, including his infamous 99-yard touchdown catch as a rookie, his Canadian Football League days and how teams in his opinion will try to defend the Chiefs in the new look and more.
Perhaps the more telling response from Boerigter, however, was when he spoke about Mahomes from a former player’s perspective. When asked what Mahomes’ most impressive trait is through this lens, Boerigter went straight to accuracy.

“I think his marksmanship,” Boerigter said when asked to name Mahome’s best skill. “If I say that, it’s because he’s throwing from all those crazy arm angles that he’s doing. … The most impressive throws for me are the ones where he throws a defender around and it looks like he’s going to make a normal throwing motion and then it comes out sideways.
“It’s a sidearm shot around the defensive end that takes its receiver about twenty yards and it ends right in his hands or right in his chest. That’s the part that I think is underestimated.”
While Mahomes’ accuracy often takes a backseat to conversations about his size, it’s also apparent when looking at his numbers. In four seasons as Kansas City’s starting quarterback, the former Texas Tech first-round pick has thrown 66.1 percent of his shots, including a career-best 66.3 percent in both 2020 and 21.
