Chiefs Need Changes After Frustrating Game Exposes Weaknesses

Written by Bruce McCuistion

Kansas City, MO – Frustration and disappointment permeated Arrowhead Stadium as the Kansas City Chiefs faced a disheartening loss that encapsulated the struggles plaguing the team throughout the year. The game showcased a litany of issues, from drops and turnovers to questionable offensive play calls, prompting fans to voice their concerns about the team's performance and future.

This game encapsulates everything that has not been good with the Chiefs this year. Drops, turnovers, bad route running by wide receivers', turnovers for TDs, bad offensive line play, and questionable offensive play calls.

So, what do we do in the off-season? I say we fire the WRs coach, fire the OL Coach, get two new tackles, draft the next great TE, and clean house in the WR room. The laundry list of problems includes drops, turnovers, poor route running by wide receivers, turnovers resulting in touchdowns, subpar offensive line play, and questionable offensive play calls. Chiefs faithful are now contemplating the necessary steps to remedy these woes during the upcoming off-season.

The spotlight also falls on star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has faced criticism for two consecutive turnovers resulting in touchdowns during the game. I can only express frustration at Mahomes for consistently targeting tight end Travis Kelce and called for a more diverse passing strategy. My thought is that Mahomes needs to broaden his field of vision and take advantage of open receivers.

The call for change extends to the special teams unit, and I express dismay over a missed 36-yard field goal kick that further compounded the team's struggles. My sentiment is that improvements are needed across various facets of the Chiefs' gameplay to regain their competitive edge.

General Manager Brett Veach, has found himself under scrutiny for the team's performance this season. Fans are demanding accountability and changes to ensure a more successful campaign in the future.

As the Chiefs lick their wounds and look toward the off-season, the calls for restructuring and improvements will resonate within the fan base. The organization now faces the challenging task of addressing these concerns and making strategic moves to restore the team's championship aspirations in the seasons to come.
