home on Monday, Travis Kelce has been warned that he faces a fan backlash if the team’s season starts to slide.
The defending champions were expected to dominate the regular season once again this term, but Kelce’s romance with Taylor Swift is threatening his focus according to Jon ‘Stugotz’ Weiner.On the show, Weiner expressed a warning for Kelce, cautioning him that doubts might surface if the team continues to lose games and if Kelce makes critical mistakes, such as a drop or a significant fumble, as witnessed in the loss to the Eagles.
“I’ve got a message for Travis Kelce, Dan, because he’s a friend of mine, and I am telling you right now, he doesn’t know this is going to happen but it’s about to happen,” Stugotz told The Dan Le Batard show.
“They lose more games, OK, he has a drop, he has a big fumble in that game last night, big turnover … and Chiefs fans, they’re going to start doubting Travis Kelce.”Despite still being a top-two seed in the AFC playoff race, Stugotz warned Kelce that passionate fans might soon turn on him through sports radio discussions and expressed his concern for Kelce, noting that he might be unprepared for the scrutiny.
How did Travis Kelce respond?
Kelce, who acknowledged his subpar performance in a recent episode of his “New Heights” podcast, admitted to his frustration.
“I’m not playing my best football right now. It’s pissing me off every fuc*ing time I go out there,” Kelce admitted.
The eight-time Pro Bowler managed to score one touchdown in the first half against the Eagles, finishing the game with seven catches for 44 yards.
