Tinesha Mahomes, aunt of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes from his father's side, blamed general manager Brett Veach for her nephew's recent struggles on the field.
She said on the latest episode of her "2 Gems and a Mic" podcast that Veach had plenty of opportunities to equip the team with better wide receivers ahead of the 2023 NFL season.
"This is on Veach," Tinesha said. "He's not on the field but he damn sure could have went and got some help. I think Stevie Wonder could have seen that this is a problem. ...
"Now, them same receivers is out there dropping balls left and right and Pat is out there looking a little crazy himself."
Is Patrick Mahomes' aunt right?
Chiefs lead the league in dropped passes this season and once again lost a game when Marquez Valdes-Scantling failed to catch a long pass near the end zone down the final stretch against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
"A lot of these burdens could have been lifted if the GM would have just been out of his own head and let his ego go a little bit and went out there and got some help," Tinesha said. "He had ample opportunity to do that, but for some reason, he thought he saw something that everybody else didn't see!"
Mahomes' aunt is echoing what many Chiefs fans believe to be true, though the players, such as tight end Travis Kelce, refuse to point fingers.
