He's made quite a few in his last fourteen years in Philadelphia, and I don't expect him to suddenly become Mr. Perfect. In fact, I expect him to be quite the opposite. If Andy is as smart as I think he is, he is not going to come into KC and simply try to resurrect the staff, player personnel etc. that he had in Philly during his best years there. KC is a different place, with different players and coaches, and he needs to adjust his style to his new job. Period.
If Andy comes here and does nothing but chase the past, he will fail very quickly. That's the last thing I want to see happen. I want Andy to finally get that Lombardi trophy as a Chief. There is much about Andy to like, but there is also some to dislike. In fourteen years, he only made the Super Bowl one time, and he lost. Reports are that he is not only bad at in game adjustments, he doesn't make them at all. Folks, if there is one single reason that he hasn't made more than one Super Bowl appearance, this could definitely be it. Not being able to adjust is probably the biggest reason that Brian Daboll looks like and amateur and has a losing record in the NFL.
How often do we hear of the coaching in the NFL being likened to playing a chess match? Chess changes with every move made and football seemingly would be very similar. If the opposing defense is rolling coverage on your number one receiver, you don't just shrug your shoulders and say, "Oh well, we'll try again next time we play". The fact that Reid seems to do this during the games that count the most is even more disconcerting.
I am glad that Clark went after Andy Reid. I just hope that Andy Reid is still excited about being a football coach. If that is the case, we should see some much better football around here sooner than later.
Welcome to KC Andy Reid. If you hadn't heard, this is the showme state. You got a lot of work to do. Let's get it started!
