Andy Reid is the best coach in the AFC West.

If you don’t believe that, you can’t be helped.

Of course nearly everything can be argued, and there is always that pesky “matter of opinion” everyone possesses, but here is some indisputable info that shows Reid’s experience cannot be matched.

  • Leads the division in coaching wins
  • Has been to more conference championship games than the other three coaches combined
  • Is the only coach in the division to lead his team to a Super Bowl
  • Has the best mustache

While the mustache may be the biggest contributing factor to his success, the other attributes are important as well.

He’s certainly taken some heat for not winning a playoff game (and choking one away), but he took over a team that hadn’t won one in 19 seasons prior.

He came as close as anyone in his first season with a team that won two games just one year before he arrived.

In the six seasons before Reid came to Kansas City, the Chiefs averaged less than five wins per year — and that included a 10-win, division championship season.

That means the five other were so bad the thought of a playoff win was gone about six weeks in to the season.

Reid might not be Bill Belichick, but he’s also thankfully no David Shula.
