After back-to-back appearances in the Super Bowl and winning in 2020, Kansas City sits third in the AFC West with a 3-4 record. The team’s performance has left some fans frustrated.

Fans took to social media to voice their displeasure, and Tyrann Mathieu and Anthony Hitchens wrote comments on an Instagram post from a Chiefs fan account saying fans need to be more appreciative given what the team has accomplished in recent seasons.

The post called for fans to rank three contract moves from Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach “in terms of how bad they were”—Frank Clark, Hitchens and “passing on Jonathan Taylor, D’Andre Swift, Cam Akers, J.K Dobbins, and Antonio Gibson for Clyde Edwards-Helaire.”
