The first season with the quarterback he waited his whole life for ended in an instant, literally by inches, a years worth of work flushed away by a wicked combination of randomness and luck and execution.
Andy Reid might be in the Hall of Fame someday, and if so itll be largely because of his constant thirst for improvement and belief in day-to-day routine. Those things can be at odds at times, like on Sunday night, in the wake of one of the most disappointing defeats of his career 37-31, in overtime against the New England Patriots, at home in the AFC Championship Game.
There is much for the Chiefs coach to evaluate. Much to improve. After the game, with an organization to lead, Reid watched film and organized people and paperwork in preparation for baggie day when lockers are emptied into trash bags, players take their exit physicals, and everyone meets with the head coach before going their separate ways.
