On the second day of the second month and in his second Super Bowl as a head coach, Andy Reid won his 222nd game and in doing so clinched his first Lombardi Trophy. Turns out that second time's a charm for Big Red.
Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup between Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers sees a matchup between two head coaches who are regarded amongst the most innovative and exciting offensive play callers in the league.
With the San Francisco 49ers facing the Kansas City Chiefs, this year's Super Bowl should prove to be one to remember. It may not be the Super Bowl I rematch that many were expecting, but nonetheless NFL fans should be in for a classic. Let's talk about how both teams got to this point.
Ranking the top 10 coaches in the league is no easy task and inevitably those at the top of the profession tend to be those who have been in it the longest. Tenure indicates success.
After a spectacular 2018 where Andy Reid’s wonderfully entertaining offence was driven by the brilliant Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs fell to a heartbreaking overtime loss in the AFC Championship game to perennial winners New England.
The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the NFL's most exciting and dangerous teams last season. Why haven't they built on that this offseason?
The main mark against Reid, though, would be the pretty porous Chiefs defence, which despite stellar individual performances from outside linebacker Dee Ford and defensive lineman Chris Jones, forced Kansas City to outscore opponents consistently.
