Twitter reacts to Dan Sorensen’s frustrating performance vs. Giants

The Kansas City Chiefs came away with a narrow 20-17 win over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. If you read the reactions from Chiefs fans on social media, many are unimpressed. If you did not watch the game but read the reactions, you would have thought that the Chiefs lost.

It was an ugly win, and there were a lot of negatives from Monday night. One big issue was the play of Chiefs safety Dan Sorensen, and everyone was talking about it. Hall of Famers, reporters, bloggers and avid fans all criticized Sorensen and even cracked a few jokes during Monday night’s game.

NFL fans on Twitter took note of Dan Sorensen’s poor coverage on Monday night.

Sorensen is having the worst season of his career and it is not even close. According to Pro Football Reference, Sorensen has missed more than 20 percent of his tackles, and that has been an issue all year long prior to the Chiefs benching him for Juan Thornhill. However, it was his poor coverage that got Twitter talking.

When Giants quarterback Daniel Jones tried to connect with John Ross in the first quarter, Sorensen heavily interfered on the play. The worst part: Ross still caught it. Needless to say, the Giants declined the penalty and earned a 50-yard completion. The Giants went on to score a touchdown on the drive to tie the game at seven.

Twitter reacted to Sorensen again after he allowed Evan Engram to pass through for a touchdown. Sorensen attempted to dive to bat down the pass, but missed.

It is hard to explain why the Chiefs still keep playing Sorensen. Any time he is on the field, bad things happen to the Chiefs defense. Sorensen has allowed 18 completions off 22 attempts for 295 yards, per Pro Football Reference. He’s allowing a completion on almost 82 percent of the passes thrown at his direction while allowing 16.4 yards per completion.

The entire world can see it.

I did not see the Manning Cast on ESPN2. I did DVR it and will watch later today because I want to hear Peyton and Eli discuss the Chiefs woes this year. According to social media, Peyton heavily criticized Sorensen for his poor play.

Whether you are a fan or a Hall of Famer, everyone can see Sorensen is a massive liability.

Well, almost everyone.
