Andy Reid went full Belichick after Chiefs loss to Packers: 'We're onto Cincinnati'

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Andy Reid gave a very, very weird press conference after the Kansas City Chiefs loss to the Green Bay Packers. Reid never really says much of anything but this one was particularly terse. He repeatedly said some version of "It's my responsibility" when he was asked anything about the game. There were some heavy sighs and perhaps an eye roll or two. He obviously did not want to be there. I'm not even sure why the Chiefs trotted him out there (well, because the league requires it).

This reminded me very much of Bill Belichick's press conference after the Chiefs game last year. The Patriots had just been blasted at Arrowhead and Belichick repeatedly said, "We're onto Cincinnati." That became a rallying call for the Patriots, who went onto win the Super Bowl.

Here is the Q&A with Reid. Video here.

On whether they considered a change at QB:

We're gonna move on here quickly.

On the penalties:

That's my fault, that's my fault. Too many penalties. Not disciplined enough.

On what he saw from the players:

That's my responsibility to make sure they do that right.

On a question I couldn't hear but doesn't even really matter:

Again that's my responsibility to make sure we do a better job as a team. And it starts with me.

On whether Rodgers was targeting specific cornerbacks:

I gotta make sure everything is taken care of on that front there. That's my responsibility.

On the Packers defense:

Green Bay did a nice job.

On the sequence at the end of the first half:

We're moving on. We're moving onto Cincinnati. We'll fix all that. I'll make sure I look at the tape.
