Andy Reid: “Humbled” by support, but it’s about the team

There have been several Chiefs players who said that part of their motivation for winning the Super Bowl is to fill in the remaining blank spot on Andy Reid’s coaching record and there have been plenty of others outside the organization who have expressed their own desire to see Reid win the big one on Sunday.

Reid was asked about that support during his Thursday press conference in Miami. He said he was “humbled” by what people have had to say, but that it was “a team effort” to get to this point and that he’s not thinking about himself as he finishes preparations for the 49ers.

“My complete focus is on making sure that we as coaches do a good job and that the players do a good job in the Super Bowl,” Reid said.

It’s no surprise that Reid resists the notion of making the game about him as that’s part of the reason why so many people would like to see him finally get the ring.

  1. Been a big Reid fan ever since he came from nothing to lead the Eagles back to relevance. He already should have at least one from that time, but now is the time to do it. Defense is playing well, a QB that is more athletic than McNabb (and I loved watching McNabb play) and a frightening offense. Got to take the same chance Pederson did—go for everything.

  2. It’s kind of sad that either of these teams has to lose on Sunday. They’re both great stories of teams and individuals overcoming challenges and doing what needs to be done to get to this level. Both of these teams have fully earned being where they are.

    The 49ers seem more consistent end to end and have been heavily battle-tested this year. The Chiefs have the most electrifying playmakers who can turn the game around in a moment.

    When thinking about these Chiefs, I keep thinking about the ’90s Bills. Seemingly-irresistible force, until they run into a completely balanced team with solid defense. But it’s hard to believe that anyone could fully contain Mahomes right now. Going to be very interesting.

  3. That horrible morning team on 94.1 WIP just absolutely trashed him this morning and a former player of his Hollies Thomas just shredded Andy ,totally classless !

  4. Hollis Thomas should be ashamed of himself how he trashed Andy on Philly Sports Talk this morning an absolute disgrace !

  5. All teams have a few bad actors but since Andy embraces a player like Hill, have to root against him. Hunt would still be there if they didn’t have the camera footage. Easy to rot against KC.

    Yeah, don’t bother learning the entire Hill story, when developing your opinion, just go with what you got. There is a reason Hill was not arrested, released from the team, nor punished by the NFL.
