On Thursday night, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney had a pretty brutal game where he had multiple drops, including one that turned into a pivotal pick-six. And as he attempts to move on from the performance, it sounds like he’s taking ownership of his mistakes.
During a press conference this week, Kadarius Toney made it very clear that he thinks he can play better and wants the team to be able to count on him to make plays.
“I told coach, I told Pat, all the guys — that’s on me,” Toney said in his press conference according to Pro Football Talk. “At the end of the day, y’all count on me and rely on me to make certain plays, and I’ve got to be there to do that. There’s really no excuse, nothing you can blame it on — none of that.
“I know I could have made those plays.”
Despite his struggles in the season opener, Toney said that quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid still believe in him.
“Both of those guys, they’ve got trust, they’ve got faith in me,” Toney said. “And I appreciate those guys for that. Like I said, just have to go put the work in. There isn’t too much talking with me left.”
We’ll have to see whether or not Toney can bounce back with a strong performance this week.
