Chiefs' Chris Conley says Andy Reid is like an older Yoda

New, comments

I have a confession. I have never seen Star Wars. Not the old ones and not the new(-ish) ones and not the ones that came out this week. I need to know, I know. I just haven't seen any of them.

So I can't say I fully appreciate Robert Klemko's Star Wars interview with Chiefs WR Chris Conley. Remember that Conley came into the league with a Star Wars fan film called Retribution, which you can watch above.

Despite my lack of Star Wars knowledge I enjoyed this MMQB interview with Conley, who calls Andy Reid an older Yoda.

"I would probably say that [Georgia] coach [Mark] Richt and coach [Andy] Reid have a bit of Yoda in them—the person who is always there overseeing, not too overbearing, but always has words of wisdom," Conley said, per the MMQB. "More so coach Reid, because he always has jokes he'll throw in here and there, so he reminds me of an older Yoda."

Travis Kelce is Han Solo. Eric Berry is Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Go read the interview over at the MMQB.
