The Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is a legend. He is truly one of the greatest coaches of all time, and easily the best coach of the remaining teams, and maybe in the league overall, after the season Bill Belichick had.
There is one thing that Reid did this last week that most of these coaches may never get the opportunity to do. He made history, yet again, but this time he is in a class of his own. He has done something that no other coach has, in the history of the league. Big red just keeps doing big red things.
Chiefs’ HC sets postseason record after win over Jaguars
We all know about the career Reid had in Philadelphia before he came to Kansas City, and it just so happens he has a chance to coach against them in the Super Bowl, which would probably be a rollercoaster of emotions.
But, when he was in Philly he had a pretty good career. He was also questioned though because he couldn’t get over the hump. He just couldn’t win that Super Bowl ring. Now he has.
He won 10 playoff games with the Eagles, something that is hard to do by itself. Then, he won 10 playoff games with the Chiefs after their win over the Jaguars. That is hard, very hard, especially doing it for two different teams. It’s so incredibly hard that he is the only guy to do that in the history of the league.
No one has ever had 10 playoff wins with two different teams. Reid also has five more playoff wins than Hank Stram (1960-74), the next most in Chiefs postseason history. This guy is a legend, as I said before. What he did is something most coaches will never get the opportunity to do.
