With just two games left in the regular season, the Kansas City Chiefs are facing challenges, and former Chiefs player Dante Hall, recently inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor, has shared some valuable insights.
Speaking on Good Morning Football on December 27, Hall directed his advice at quarterback Patrick Mahomes, urging him to embrace a different approach for offensive success.
Addressing Mahomes, Hall emphasized, “Fall in love with the swing route, the checkdowns. These plays have been there for the taking, and that’s pretty much what we need to get back to, right?”
Hall also didn’t shy away from criticizing Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce’s recent sideline behavior, comparing it to “spoiled little brats.”
Expressing concern, Hall stated, “This is not a good look. I’m watching the game with my kids, my daughter loves Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, and you’re acting like that? C’mon, guys! Be better, and I think the team will be better.”
Despite the coaching staff’s efforts to encourage quicker plays near the line of scrimmage, the Chiefs faced challenges in their recent game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Hall acknowledged the strategy but highlighted that cleaning up turnover issues is crucial for its effectiveness moving forward.
Hall also directed advice towards Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, questioning whether the team’s offensive issues stem from coaching changes.
“Is it Nagy? Is it Bieniemy? I don’t know. But I would like to start there — it starts at the top, right?” he remarked.
Lastly, Hall emphasized the importance of positive body language on game day, encouraging the team to return to the positivity seen in Mahomes’ first five years.
With the Chiefs set to face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17, Hall’s insights provide a roadmap for addressing challenges and reclaiming success on the field.
