Philadelphia Eagles players ready to see new KC Chiefs head coach Andy Reid

New, comments

The KC Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles this year, which means it's a homecoming for Andy Reid, the new Chiefs coach and former Eagles coach.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Much of the current Philadelphia Eagles roster was put together by Andy Reid, who is now the Kansas City Chiefs head coach. With the Chiefs playing the Eagles in Philadelphia this year -- Thursday Night Football in Week 3 -- there's going to be a lot of homecoming talk this offseason.

LeSean McCoy is one such Eagles player who was asked about Reid's homecoming on NFL Network.

Bleeding Green Nation: More from McCoy

"He means a lot to me and a lot of other players," McCoy said, via Bleeding Green Nation. "We'll give each other a big hug, and then once the game starts, I know how coach Reid is. He's so focused. All in all, we always know it's always love and mutual respect between each other, but we have a job to do."

Reid had a lot of success there and his firing wasn't a surprise so I would think that Eagles fans wouldn't have it out for him the same way a group of Chiefs fans might with a kicker who couldn't make a freakin' field goal in January 1996 against the Colts. Then again, these are Eagles fans. I'm sure we'll hear plenty of booing.

The Eagles game has to be high up there on the list of notable notable games on the Chiefs 2013 schedule. The best one? See the full schedule here.

I also have a feeling that by the time September 19 comes, we're going to be sick and tired of talking about Andy Reid's time with the Eagles...
