Eric Bieniemy not worried about spat with Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes didn’t have an awesome Week 3 by his personal requirements, throwing for 262 yards, just one landing and an interception within the Chiefs’ 20-17 loss to the Colts.

It was what occurred on the sidelines, although, that caught peoples’ consideration.

The celebrity QB bought into an obvious shouting match between Mahomes and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on the finish of the primary half.

Mahomes appeared irritated that the Chiefs didn’t go for extra factors earlier than heading into halftime, a choice that performed a job of their eventual loss.

“At that particular time, as a staff, we decided, ‘You know what? We’re getting the ball to start the second half off, so we just want to take a knee,’” Bieniemy instructed reporters Thursday. “So obviously, Pat, being the competitor that he is, wasn’t ready to hear that.”

Mahomes mentioned Sunday he “wanted to go try to score” and that the altercation was blown up on-line. Days later, Bieniemy agreed with the QB’s evaluation.

Patrick Mahomes and Eric Bienemy bought into it throughout Week 3’s matchup, however the offensive coordinator doesn’t see any lasting results.

“You guys have seen me erupt,” Bienemy mentioned. “If it had been a true eruption, I think you guys would have recognized it.”

It’s time for anybody involved about the Mahomes-Bieniemy relationship to maneuver on, he mentioned.

“So the exchange that we had,” Bieniemy mentioned. “Who cares? It really doesn’t matter. Because when it’s all said and done with, we’re going to talk a minute or two later, and talk about exactly what we need to do. So there is no personal issue. You just keep it moving forward.”

Kansas City will look to bounce again from its loss in opposition to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night time.
