Andy Reid interviewing with KC, flying to AZ

24 posts in this topic

Chris Mortensen just reported A. Reid is interviewing in Philly with KC officials, and will fly to Arizona tonight.  Reid has made QB's look better than they probably really were, I wonder if he could it in KC or AZ?

He's a good coach. I think he could improve Brady Quinn's game in Kansas City, and Kolb has previous experience in Reid's version of the WCO. Kolb was lost in Whisenhunt's offense and I didn't see the skill set to run it. Kolb should look much better if Reid is his coach.

 

That is one of the beauties of the WCO, it often amplifies a quarterback, and it's much easier for a replacement to come in and run compared to some other schemes.

I guess Reid never actually made it out to AZ as planned.  It sounds like the talks with KC went quite well for Andy.  :)

Hope he signs with AZ as I dont wanna see KC become a force to threat Manning and the Broncos.

I don't see the infatuation with Reid. He's an alright coach, but if not for Reid's terrible playcalling over the yrs. Philly would probably have a couple SB rings by now.

I think it's lining up more and more for SD to land Arians.

 

 

I'm thinking the same thing.

damn it I know this team is more talented than the Chargers and could give Manning some tough games next yr.

My sentiment exactly.

KC has more potentials, they just need the right leadership.

They have the pieces on defense and offense to make them great, but it will require them to change their play calling and fix their QB issues.

And if Arians goes to the Bolts...   :woah:

I hope Arians goes to Chicago as that's probably the best job out there. I wouldn't recommend San Diego.

Why did Andy Reid agree to go to Kansas City? That team is like the Cleveland Browns of the NFC. High drafts picks every year, a rich organizational history in the NFL, & a constant disappointment.

 

It really boils down to who Andy selects as his DC. Is Romeo Crennel going to agree to stay on teaching the defense? Romeo was darn good serving in that capacity in NE.

 

A horrible move for Andy Reid IMO. I don't like this fit at all. If he chooses the wrong DC candidate, Andy will be fired in 4 years...

Chicago would have been a much better fit for Andy. Yes, he didn't exactly cater to the running game with bubble screens & slant routes but with Forte & Bush Andy would learn to appreciate the ground game IMO.

The only thing that might save Andy Reid's caboose in KC is if Mike Nolan doesn't get a HC job & he agrees to join Reid's coaching staff for a lucrative salary as a DC. Beyond that, I don't see too many other Jim Johnson  masterminds out there right now.

I don't think the Cards should have fired Whisenhunt. Watch that defense drastically regress now. They went from being a QB away from a playoff team to now a total disaster. Go ahead and hire a washed up Ried who made his offensive line coach a defensive coordinator back in Philly.

Has any coach ever had moderate success with one team over a prolonged period of time like Reid, then went to another team and had success there?

 

I'm not that big a Reid fan to begin with, but I think it's going to be difficult for him to live up to expectations anywhere else. Especially if he goes and takes over all football operations in KC like he did in Philly. I don't believe in that kind of structure in the NFL.

Cheifs should take Barkley. Geno is not going to pan out in the NFL. Andy get yourself the conventional QB in Matt.

Reports are that Reid is very close to signing with KC.  I thought I read somewhere that he told everyone that he and Tom Heckert are a package deal.  I thought Reid would go to either San Diego or Arizona, where he would be reunited with Kolb

    • Hey /m/COLTS/m/.......  What is the meaning of the badge?  Is it firefighter?
    • Good question.  The answer is the NFL changes its substance abuse policy to follow society and Federal law.  The NFL and NFLPA recently  collectively bargained just this issue to reduce punishments and include more 'chances'. So, the punishments on THC have been made more lenient to keep pace with changing societal views.  But until it is legal for recreational or medicinal use in every state and decriminalized in Federal law, it will not be off the banned substance list.  But the NFL will adjust rules/punishment over time until such point.  That  point is not here yet. Here's Herm Edwards take as of now-   “I think our league is trying to have a set of rules and regulations that an athlete has to live up to, and in order to be part of the league, you have to live up to them,’’ said former head coach Herm Edwards, now an ESPN studio analyst. “You may not like the rules, but there are consequences to violating them. Right now, in our league, it’s on the list of banned substances."   It seems the substance abuse test at the combine and in the off season between April 20 and August 9 is almost a player I.Q. test of sorts, and there is a penalty to 'not study' and 'flunk' it.   The players know, and make career decisions when ingesting items that are not allowed.  They can't plead ignorance as a defense. They know.   Do teams / NFL outright oppose using MJ?  Not really it seems, and it may well be a better alternative to binge drinking. But they both do oppose testing positive for it.    Similar to do I oppose my wife (only hypothetical here!) trying to make it through a yellow light and actually catch the red?  As long as there are no accidents, not really.  What I do oppose is getting a $260 citation in the mail for her catching that Red and captured by a red light photo camera.   During the season use, the player will regulate it or lose his job. In the narrow off season testing window, they want to see who can man up and get/stay clean until their test is completed.  Nothing more. And they usually test at a team event or by position groups on a team (for all players not in the Drug Program), so there is ample warning signs of when the test may well occur.   We will see if it gets change again at the next CBA negotiations.  Or even earlier... as recently happened.  but no change on the horizon as of now.
    • perhaps but I felt big Art needed a little help. i have a weakness to help those with "broken wings". this forum has a tendency to over-react sometimes. Well, maybe more than sometimes. but yea, maybe so but if teams cut players for every infraction and every time fans wanted them cut, Blue would have to suit up.
    • He was "let go" mostly because he retired.      Got a good paying gig with ESPN.     That is his long-term future.   As to any other reasons......    his body was breaking down as he got punished last season,  so his performance couldn't hold up.      I'm sure you noticed no other NFL team made him an offer to be their back-up.     They found a back-up (Tolszein) who the Colts think can do roughly the same for less $$.       It was just time for the change.    Hasselbeck had to move on.
    • So do you guys think he was let go because of age or cap hit ($)? i know he's as old as Moses, but I thought he played as well (probably better) than we could hope to get from either Backup on current roster. granted, he's a "manager", but there's no way either of these two on roster give Luck off the field what Hasselbeck did. or perhaps the team is looking for a younger backup?  As a backup QB behind a franchise QB, Experience is bigger than talent in my view.  Assuming you don't expect to lose your guy for 9 games which hopefully was an anomaly. i know he looked a lil slow out there but more than made up for it with game smarts.
