3. Andy Reid
Andy Reid is one of the best coaches to ever live, but GEEZ LOUISE can we stop with this ridiculous nonsense on short-yardage situations please!?
For years, Chiefs fans have expressed frustration with Reid’s “cute” decisions on third or fourth-and-short. The best player in the world is your quarterback, so just let him do his thing. Instead, Reid continually draws up funky jet sweeps or misdirections that fall flat.
Matt Nagy is getting some blame, and he deserves it, but we’ve seen this play concepts under Reid far too often for him to not shoulder most of our frustration.
Reid’s insistence in using Clyde Edwards-Helaire between the tackles on second downs was frustrating as well. It seems Kansas City is better off in third-and-long than third-and-one, because at least then Reid won’t be tempted to take the ball out of Mahomes’ hands.
Please, for the love of football, let Patrick be Patrick. You call trick plays when you don’t trust your quarterback. Andy, you can trust this quarterback!
Toney and Moore were significant problems, yes, but Reid’s stubbornness in these spots cannot be overlooked.
