For weeks now — OK, years — fans of the Kansas City Chiefs have been attacking me for what they see as a lack of respect given to their team.
Some go as far as to say I hate the city of Kansas City, and especially the Chiefs.
Here’s the truth: I enjoy going to Kansas City (love the barbecue), the passion of their stadium setting is as good as any in the league, and their team, under Andy Reid, has been one of the best in the league the past few years.
So what if I was stupid enough to pick them to finish last in the AFC West this year?
I am the knucklehead who lost sight of the most important thing about this team: Reid is a hell of a coach.
I know the Philadelphia Eagles fans got tired of his long tenure with the team, and especially hated his clock management skills, but Reid has proven in Kansas City that, like with the Eagles, he can coach up a team.
