The calls for rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes have grown louder.
While Chiefs coach Andy Reid on Sunday said he has no plans to make a change at quarterback in the wake of his team’s fifth loss in six games, former NFL receiver Cris Carter believes a change is coming.
Cris Carter, the Pro Football Hall of Famer, tweeted after the Chiefs’ 16-10 loss to the Bills at Arrowhead Stadium that Alex Smith’s time as a starter is coming to an end.
Carter tweeted: “Alex Smith has thrown his last pass as a KC Chiefs”
Carter is on Fox Sports’ “First Things First” with Nick Wright, the former Kansas City radio personality. Wright also thinks the Chiefs should give Mahomes a shot.
“For my KC folks: It’s time for Patrick Mahomes. Enough is enough,” Wright wrote.
ESPN’s Louis Riddick also said the Chiefs should give Mahomes a chance.
Riddick tweeted: “Time to take the car cover off of the Ferrari. #Mahomes”
