Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was asked about the play of Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland on Thursday October 18, 2018, and instead of singling out the two players, said that everyone has to elevate their game.

Well, this is interesting.

Just minutes after the Chiefs announced defensive coordinator Bob Sutton had been fired on Tuesday, cornerback Steven Nelson tweeted a famous meme.

The meme is of Kermit the Frog sipping tea, which is seen as a clever way of silently commenting on something while at the same time saying, “But that’s none of my business.”

Was Nelson, who had four interceptions and 15 passes defended, agreeing with the Chiefs’ decision?

It sure seemed that way with this tweet from Nelson, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Tuesday:

Was there a rift among the Chiefs defensive players? Or was Nelson just playing with fans? Fans will undoubtedly be wondering.
