Reid, Chiefs Have 'Taken Everyone's Best Shot' and are 'Stepping Up' in Repeat Quest

In his 25th season as a head coach, Andy Reid has led the Kansas City Chiefs to within one win of becoming the first NFL team in 19 years to win back-to-back Super Bowls. Reid's masterful performance this season has been praised as his best coaching job yet. Despite a midseason slump that threatened to ruin their repeat hopes, Reid kept the team steady.

Reid attributed the team's resiliency to Mahomes and Kelce's leadership and the general attitude fostered in the locker room and on the sideline. He also praised general manager Brett Veach for bringing in the right players. After a difficult stretch in which they lost five of eight games, the Chiefs have won eight straight games, including the playoffs.

Reid attributed the team's midseason turnaround to a "wakeup call" and the realization that they needed to "step things up." He noted that the Chiefs were taking everyone's best shot and that the team was learning from adversity and moving on.

Reid, who has already won two Super Bowls and more games than any coach in Chiefs history, will likely be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame regardless of the outcome of the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. But, a win would make it even more difficult to argue that the 65-year-old Reid isn't getting better with age.
