When I first heard this is was confused. Why would Andy Reid want to coach the Chiefs? Why would any coach want to coach a team who had the worst record in the league? Especially Andy Reid. I would’ve thought he would’ve went to a better team like the Bears or Chargers.
But then I thought about it. The Chiefs don’t have a bad roster. They one of the best Linebacker duos in the league, solid Cornerbacks and Safeties, a great running back, a good offensive line and decent receivers. Maybe a good coach is what this team really needs to propel itself to a playoff spot.
They do get the number 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft. That could be very interesting depending on who they choose to go with. I would think defense. I would go with Manti Te’o out of Notreo Dame. I like him a lot and I think he can be a huge piece to a defense. They can also go with Star Lotulelei out of Utah.
I wouldn’t go with a Quarterback. You can grab one from free agency. Geno Smith and Matt Barkley are the top quarterbacks coming out of the draft, but they are no Andrew Luck or RG3 or Russell Wilson. Free agency is where I’d go for a Quarterback or maybe just stick with Matt Cassel. Maybe he needs a good coach to propel him into a top 10 Quarterback. I think it could be.
In fact…I LOVE Andy Reid going to the Chiefs. I think he can really turn that organization around. If Lombardi can turn the Packers around into an elite team, then why can’t Andy Reid do that to the Chiefs? Anything’s possible, but time will tell. I can’t wait to see where this team goes next season.
