Stephen A. Smith calls out Travis Kelce for not demanding more from Chiefs’ wide receivers

The Kansas City Chiefs have been dropping too many passes this season

The Kansas City Chiefs are a far cry from the championship team they were last season and there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for that. Over the course of all the games, the team’s wide receivers have dropped a grand total of 33 passes combined. Patrick Mahomes’ frustrations were aired last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills but he is not ony angry at the referees. His own wide receivers have been letting him down all season. The likes of Kadarius Toney, Skyy More, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have not been on the level they are required. For the most recent Super Bowl champions, the level of performance that is required should always be at the highest level you can imagine.

Stephen A. Smith doesn’t want Travis Kelce to defend WRs
As the team’s tight end and one of the most important players on the team, Travis Kelce has been doing his best to be a leader all the other players can rely on. People want to blame his relationship with Taylor Swift for what’s happening this season but the reality is that the wide receivers are to blame. Kelce has always backed his teammates and would never throw them under the bus, but that stuff won’t fly with Stephen A. Smith. The ESPN analyst calls it like it is and he wants Travis Kelce to call out his teammates as well. This is what he said on his Youtube show: “Travis Kelce you need to stop, respectfully bro stop that. Your receivers have dropped 33 passes this year 33 dawg, and all the covid vaccine commercials with that smile on your face go hide that.”

He continued: “Hell, rather than getting the vaccine shot they need to get some velcro or something attached to their damn hand so they’ll catch the damn football, come on bro. It ain’t like it’s Stephen A. out there trying to catch a damn touchdown, these are professionals, I mean come on y’all are the reigning defending Super Bowl champions. There’s no Tyreek Hill there just like there wasn’t one last year, the only thing y’all missing is Juju Smith-Schuster, what’s the problem? You got receivers dropping passes, dropping first down passes, on third downs failing to convert third downs, you got them dropping touchdown passes, and then you got cats lining off offsides.”
