Reid coached tight ends and was an assistant offensive line coach in his first five seasons at Green Bay before taking over the unlikely role as quarterbacks coach in 1997, tutoring Brett Favre for two years. Holmgren had his reasons for making Reid his quarterbacks coach after Marty Mornhinweg left to become offensive coordinator at San Francisco.

“Line coaches live in their little worlds,” Holmgren said. “I said this is going to expand your horizons and you will thank me for it someday. It allowed him to understand the passing game more and have a feel for the entire offense.”

One of Favre’s backups was Matt Hasselbeck, who was taken by the Packers in the sixth round of the 1998 draft on the recommendation of Reid, who was the only coach to attend Hasselbeck’s pro day at Boston College, mainly because Koetter was the quarterbacks coach.

The first lesson Reid taught Hasselbeck was to avoid watching Favre’s poor fundaments and daring decision making, which only Favre could get away with because of his talent.

“But he wanted me to pay attention to the intangibles,” said Hasselbeck, who would be traded to Seattle and help Holmgren to a Super Bowl, “Brett’s leadership style, the way he handles criticism from coaches, the way he motivates the huddle.”

Reid was not a clone of Holmgren’s but a buffer.

“He’s not a yeller or screamer, but he’ll get on you,” Hasselbeck said. “There were times he got on me or Brett for sure, but he was very creative in how he did it.

“Mike Holmgren would be ripping Brett Favre or screaming at me in training camp. Andy would get between the two of us and would have body language like he was ripping me, and he would say quietly, ‘Listen, I know what happened on that play, the receiver ran the wrong route, we’ll see it on film. … I need to look like I’m yelling at you right now.’

“Andy was really big picture. Everything he ever told me was spot on. I wouldn’t even be in the NFL if it wasn’t for Andy Reid. I’d take a bullet for this guy. I’d do anything for him. I trust him. He builds a relationship and loyalty.”
