I’m not surprised that Chiefs nose tackle Dontari Poe would say the best thing the Chiefs have going for them is the guy that just gave him a week off.
Poe thinks the biggest thing the Chiefs have going for them entering this postseason is “Big Red,” aka Andy Reid.— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) January 3, 2017
Chiefs players love Andy Reid. They loved Herm Edwards and Romeo Crennel but they didn’t win. Andy Reid is the right combination. He has the respect of the players, he respects them back and the Chiefs win.
Reid said earlier in the day that the best part of this team is that there isn’t a bunch of griping and the leaders set the right tone. There’s some coach speak there but it’s also true. Eric Berry, Justin Houston, Alex Smith ... these are the Chiefs leaders and they’re not the rah-rah type.
On the field, Reid is indeed an advantage. I can count on one hand the number of coaches that could’ve gotten this much out of Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce.
