The Chiefs have arrived in Tampa

USA TODAY Sports

In pre-pandemic times, the Chiefs would have been in Tampa for the last week to practice, fulfill media obligations, and otherwise prepare for the Super Bowl.

This year brought big changes to Super Bowl week, including the Chiefs remaining in Kansas City and traveling to the game on Saturday as if it were a regular season road game. One of those road games was to face the Buccaneers in Tampa in Week 12 and head coach Andy Reid said they’ll be staying in the same hotel that they were in the night before that 27-24 win.

“You know where the meeting rooms are, most of the guys are in the same room,” Reid said, via pool reporter Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star. “So, they kind of know where they are there and how to get where they need to go.”

Reid’s son Britt, the Chiefs’ outside linebackers coach, did not make the trip after his involvement in a car crash in Kansas City on Thursday night. Two children were hospitalized with injuries sustained in the crash. Reid, who told police he had two or three drinks, was also taken to the hospital by police.

  1. If Britt Reid was in Tampa this past week, he most likely would have been in an Uber while he was drunk & high on Adderall instead of feeling comfortable enough to drive his own car.

  2. Police apparently drew blood from Britt Reid to test his blood alcohol level. Everyone will know soon enough if he was drunk or not

    It doesn't matter. Booze and Adderall will get you a DUI. Particulary, when you fail a field test. Ask a certain famous golfer.

    Don’t count your trophies until they are actually in your hands when it is the Super Bowl and you are against Tom Brady without Eli Manning on your team.

    A still bitter Falcons fan.

  5. Bucs all the way now. Andy won’t be able to concentrate and will opt to kick a field goal on 4th and goal down by 8 with 3 minutes left to play.

  6. I am glad they left him behind. He should be fired. On another note I am curious how arriving the day before the big game changes practice and such. They are a little lucky that the media is tuned down and not in your face for a week straight.

  7. I got $10 bucks sayin if the Chiefs win, Britt Reid will find his way to the locker room “celebration”

  8. If TB doesn’t throw an interception early watch out. In big games TB has a history of throwing high over the middle from being too amped up. In the Giants losses I blame game planning as they tried to go deep against a defense that could get pressure with 4. They should try to run, throw short and play action to keep KC offense off the field as long as possible.

  9. Andy is basically running Bill Walsh’s old 49ers offense. Instead of Young or Montana he has the 500 million dollar arm and he will thrash the Bucs again.

  10. Overconfident Chiefs fans forget that the Chiefs barely beat the Browns just a couple weeks ago in Kansas City.

    The officer already stated that he had bloodshot eyes, could smell alcohol on him and did poorly on the field sobriety test. That is enough to convict people. Not to mention the fact that he got into an accident, admitted to drinking “2-3” beers and taking Adderall.

    Means nothing. t’s not like the charge will get dropped if it comes back under the limit. I learned this one the hard way. Currently serving probation for a DUI. And I was under the legal limit

  13. The AFCCG tells us what’s coming – Bills did not show up and it was an easy win for the Chiefs.

    Chiefs will not be able to match the Bucs intensity & confidence.

    Bucs 43 Chef boys 34
