What I REID Into It: September 7, 2013

What I REID Into It: September 7, 2013

8-8 or 7-9 are just some of the numbers you are hearing from Kansas City Chiefs fans as the 2013 football season approaches. Lots of Chiefs fans along with many national media members predict these numbers to be the team’s final record in 2013.

This writer agrees that first-year head coach Andy Reid can get the team to improve that much from last year’s disaster that ended at 2-14. The new head coach is just one reason why I feel this way. In fact I see winning records and playoff appearances under Coach Reid. Long-time KC Chiefs fans will recall back in 1989 the team hired a veteran head coach named Marty Schottenheimer. Division titles and playoff appearances soon followed. Twelve years later in 2001 the team brought in veteran coach Dick Vermeil who had similar results. Now 12 years later in 2013 new General Manager John Dorsey hires veteran coach Andy Reid. I look forward to seeing the team thrive under another veteran head coach and hope the time is real soon.

Another number that makes me feel better about the team’s chances this season is seeing 30 new names on the team’s active roster of 53 players. With 3 new quarterbacks and 3 new tight ends it’s clear that not everyone can play for coach Reid and his 20 member coaching staff. I do admit I have concerns about the team’s offensive line and wide receiver positions as we begin the new season. While I agree a lot of numbers were used in this inaugural edition, my main focus Sunday will be watching the Chiefs have a higher number than Jacksonville on the scoreboard. Both teams finished 2-14 a year ago and have hired new coaches to lead them into 2013.

No matter the season opener’s outcome I hope you will agree with me that we are all glad to have Coach Reid directing our beloved franchise. That’s what I REID into it.
