Chiefs parade a bloody mess. Blog King, Mass Appeal KANSAS CITY -- It's a Valentine's…
Former players rip Chiefs coaches.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
KANSAS CITY — First, Kansas City Chiefs legend Nick Lowery called ’em “undisciplined.” Then, on “Sunday Night Football,” NBC broadcaster Chris Collinsworth called our Chiefs “unprofessional.” Now this. A viral video shows former Chiefs tight end Jason Dunn lambasting Andy Reid, Matt Nagy and the Chiefs coaching staff for not filling the disciplinarian role left vacate by former offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. The Chiefs lead the NFL in penalties and dropped passes. Wide receivers routinely run the wrong route and Patrick Mahomes concocted an “OMG” meme by putting his hands on his head after every damn mistake. Also, reporters caught tight end Travis Kelce ordering food for his mother during a game while he was standing on the sideline. Ain’t that a bitch? And that came on the heels of Travis attending a World Series game 24 hours before the Chiefs played the Denver Broncos on the road.
Thanks to Travis, his mother Donna, Coach Reid and Patrick, the Chiefs have more than a dozen television commercials airing. Chris Jones has a few too. Very unusual for active players and coaches. They usually wait until retirement to do a plethora of advertisements. The inmates are certainly running the asylum at One Arrowhead Drive. Players, coaches and media members have taken notice.
“There was an element that [Eric Bieniemy] gave to that room that he wasn’t gonna allow certain things to happen,” Jason said on his Chief Concerns podcast. “So if he had to get in a coach’s ass about something, he was gonna do it. I don’t know if Nagy and them are doing those things. I don’t know if it’s just soft coaching… doing pats on the back. Something has to change. Somebody needs to turn over a table. Point somebody out on film and say, ‘This right here is not going to get it done. We’re not going to win a championship with this performance.’ And I don’t care who it is. And I don’t give a damn if you’re making $50 million or $500,000. I don’t care because this is embarrassing.”
Tell ’em Jason.
Former Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, now with the Miami Dolphins, echoed a homogeneous sentiment.
“A lot of people probably won’t say it, Kansas City has a lot of great players, but [Eric Bieniemy] has a certain standard,” the Cheetah said on his podcast.
“He’ll never let you get comfortable, no matter how great you think you are.”
Tyreek is right.
The Chiefs have become arrogant.
There’s no accountability.
Patrick, Big Red and Travis prance around like rock stars.
They think they’re Taylor Swift.
Because of that, the team lacks cynosure and humility.
What’s sad is nothin’ is going to change. Coach Reid is not a disciplinarian. His two sons ran over him for years, and he put both on the NFL payroll despite the fact they were junkies. Coach Reid is nice. He’s supportive. He’s a good man. But he ain’t no disciplinarian. Not to mention Big Red, 65, is old and paunchy. He’s physically incapable of confronting players.
He’ll f*ck around and have a heart attack.
And losing weight ain’t an option.
Big Red manducates cheeseburgers daily and he has TV commercials that show him consuming all types of greasy-ass fast food. Doesn’t have to be that way. Big Red is a multimillionaire with a mansion equipped with a fitness center and a personal chef who’s capable of preparing delicious, low-calorie entrées. He could lose all that weight in 6 months if he wanted to.
There’s no excuse for being corpulent.
If Big Red was smaller, there’s no question he’d be in everybody’s ass.
But, right now, he’s simply not in a position to do so.
Anyway, do you think the Chiefs miss Bieniemy?
Watch Jason and Tyreek keep it 💯.
