The Kansas City Chiefs winning streak came to an end at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts this past Sunday. Plenty of the blame can be placed on the poor performance of the offensive line, particularly of left guard Ryan Hunter. On Tuesday, the Chiefs released Hunter, and for good reason. Take a look at the plays that were likely the last straw for the coaching staff and front office.
Hunter got burned by Colts defensive lineman Denico Autry three times. All of those plays looked equally horrendous.
The backup left guard played 14 snaps on Sunday, with 11 of them being pass blocking plays. Analytics website Pro Football Focus gave Hunter an overall grade of...0.0. His time on the field was as if nobody was playing his position.
Hunter's performance against Indianapolis made the decision easier for the Chiefs' front office, who cut ties with him in favor of veteran defensive tackle Terrell McClain and newcomer Stefen Wisniewski.
