3. Matt Nagy

I truthfully have no idea how much blame to attribute to Nagy vs. Andy Reid for the Chiefs' continued short-yardage woes. They've been an issue for years, so it seems likely Reid deserves more ire than Nagy.

That being said, Reid is a made man with this organization and Nagy is receiving a chunk of blame from the fan base regardless. A casual search of "Matt Nagy" on the platform formerly known as Twitter will show you what I mean.

Between the frequent, failed trick plays with Kadarius Toney or the creative yet unsuccessful fake field goal attempt, fans are upset with the offense. Patrick Mahomes hasn't looked comfortable all season and some wonder if the Chiefs miss Eric Bienemy's presence.

It's too early in my opinion to call for Nagy's job or anything like that. Kansas City still ranks in the top 10 in points per game, for crying out loud. However, it's obvious the offense isn't as explosive as previous year and the repeated mistakes deserve criticism.

How many times do we have to try a trick play when we need two yards instead of just running with Isiah Pacheco or letting Mahomes work his magic? Can we treat Kadarius Toney like a normal receiver instead of insisting every target comes with some sort of funky gadget thrown in?

You don't always have to reinvent the wheel. When you have better players, sometimes you just need to run around the wheel faster than everyone else.
