Let me start off by saying every AFC team should be afraid of Kansas City once the playoffs begin. They are one of the most balanced teams in the NFL, and have the ability to score at any moment during a game. All the credit in the world to the players going out each and every week making these plays happen, but it would simply not be possible without their head coach Andy Reid. This season we have seen the walrus be both conservative and aggresive with the playcalls, creating the perfect combo to confuse opposing teams. Whether it is going for it on fourth down, faking a punt, or throwing a touchdown with a 300 pound defense lineman, Andy Reid has shown he is willing to pull out all of the stops to make it to the grand stage.
Andy and the boys solidified their realness by spanking the reigning Superbowl champion Broncos last night on primetime television. The reason behind this beatdown is due to the fact Reid had his players kept on bringing it each drive and would not give Denver any mercy until the game had ended. Between his stellar defense making big stops against the pitiful Trevor Siemien and the Travis Kelce/Tyreek Hill combo lighting up the "best defense in the NFL" there was no room for the Broncos to even smell a comeback. Tyreek Hill has turned into a star quickly in this league thanks to his quick feet, and he will 100% be the X factor two weeks from now. Although the Chiefs have the talent all-around to compete with the likes of New England it will all come down to how Reid calls his plays. If he goes out with a firey IDGAF attitude and makes creative playcalls like he did last night, I can picture this team playing in in February. However, if Reid sticks to a conservative type of playcalling like he did against the Titans last week then there is quite the possibility they will give up a lead in the fourth quarter and piss their entire season down the drain. I know Andy might prefer playing conservative, especially with Alex Smith under center; but it is far better to have confidence with your other units to make the big plays and shift the momentum of a game. I hope we get to see more fat lineman touchdowns Andy Reid, and you have my full support in the AFC if you continue with those bold choices.
