the Kansas City Chiefs are having a disappointing second half of the season. After a dazzling start, in which they accumulated six wins and only one loss, the team has been in trouble, and some analysts believe they have found the cause: Taylor Swift.
Specialists such as OutKick’s Armando Salguero and Clay Travis, and Fox Sports 1’s Skip Bayless and Craig Carton have not hesitated to point to the pop sensation as the biggest distraction currently facing head coach Andy Reid’s pupils.
Since the “Bad Blood” singer began her well-known romance with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, she has attended eight of the team’s games, where she has become the center of attention, even above what’s going on on the gridiron.
Taylor’s most recent visit to a stadium resulted in a 20-14 Chiefs loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, a supposedly “easy” opponent for the defending NFL champion. The defeat unleashed the anger of fans and criticism from analysts.
What do the pundits say?
After the setback, Salguero was quick to point out in an article for OutKick: “The Kansas City Chiefs were a big disappointment on Christmas afternoon – to the degree one has to wonder if they have any chance in the upcoming playoffs.”The analyst pointed the finger directly at Reid, Kelce, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Regarding Travis and Taylor’s relationship, he recalled that the tight end has made long trips to be present at his girlfriend’s concerts, including one in Argentina during the team’s bye week.
However, he also acknowledged that Reid and Mahomes have had their own set of distractions, in the form of multiple appearances in all kinds of commercials. Although those were filmed months ago, these footages continue to be a distraction.
Bayless, for his part, was more direct, saying, “Feels like it’s about time to call Taylor Swift a distraction. What do you think, Patrick? Andy? How about you, Travis?”Clay Travis was more scathing and even compared Swift to Yoko Ono, John Lennon’s widow, and criticized Kelce’s promotion of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer.
“The Chiefs are not a good football team, and Travis Kelce looks like he should retire. He’s been worthless the last seven or eight weeks. The double worthless Pfizer shots may have caught up with him. Either that or Taylor Swift is the Chief’s Yoko Ono. Maybe both,” he said in a post on X.
“Kelce is not the Kelce he’s been for the last 20 years of his career, and I’m not sure if it’s because he’s distracted by the off-the-field stuff, which is very public, or for a guy in his mid-30s, who has talked about ‘my body doesn’t want to take any more’ that maybe the mind has followed,” said Carton, for his part.
