Andy Reid with Peter King

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl...ng-peter-king/

Four questions with Andy Reid ...


Not long before the end of the season, I wanted to ask Andy Reid whether he'd be interested in writing something around the time of the Super Bowl for Sports Illustrated. He said no -- even though in his youth he wanted to be a sportswriter. He thought he might be otherwise occupied. I'd felt he wouldn't take a year off from coaching up to that point, but then I knew if there was a job out there, he'd want it.

Q: So, since you've been named the Chiefs' coach, many people wonder: 'With everything you've been through -- your son Garrett's death by overdose, the turbulent year on and off the field you just went through -- why not take a year off to recharge and get your life back in order?

Reid: "Because I love what I do. Garrett loved what I did. It doesn't feel like work. I didn't want to sit home and not coach. What was I going to do? There was nothing I wanted to do as much as coach football. The thing with Garrett ... it was not very sudden; this was a long, long process. Unfortunately, [drug addiction] is so rampant in America, and people who have gone through it realize that you don't just -- as in my case -- lose a son; you lose a great friend. Now I'm able to bring my other son here. [Reid hired Britt Reid, who also had drug-addiction issues, to be a Chiefs quality-control coach.] Remember, he lost his best friend. But I am so proud of how far he's come. And it says something about him that the three coaches he worked for at Temple wanted him to come with them. The other side of this is working to move on like a man and handle what life throws at you. We're doing that.''

Q: Why the Chiefs? Why not, say, Arizona, or the other places you were linked to?

Reid: "The Hunt family is one of four or five bedrock families in the NFL that I always thought, 'If I'm ever released [by the Eagles], if one of those families calls, I'd listen.' The history here is so rich, the tradition is so rich, the fan base is so strong.''

Q: What's the one overriding thing you take from Philadelphia into this job?

Reid: "I learned to embrace a city in Philadelphia. They'll take you from boyhood to manhood, which they did with me, and that's okay. It's a results business. I got that. As far as the team goes, it's imperative that everybody's pulling in the same direction. That's the only way you can succeed."

Q: What's your take on the talent you inherit?

Reid: "Before I interviewed with the Chiefs, I looked at every snap from every [Kansas City] game this year. Special teams were average. The talent overall, it looked to me like they were transitioning from an older team to a younger one. And I thought, 'With a couple, three drafts, very good things can happen here."

three drafts

give or take 21 players total, aka almost an entire overhaul of potential talent, essentially a 3 year vision/rebuild

So he's almost admitting Scooter left him garbage besides the players that were here before Scooter, who Scooter wasted four years of their primes. Andy will right that ship thank goodness.

Q: How do you feel about coming to a city that gave Scott Pioli such a raw deal? Do fans like that really deserve a winner?

I think it's interesting that Reid thinks it'll take two to three drafts before this team has a chance to be good.

even if half of them make the roster, that's still a lot of talent.

he said THREE drafts. That sounds like a rebuild to me. You saw what Pioli did with four drafts, completely able to ruin a team, the opposite can happen 3 or 4 drafts can turn a team around, which is rebuilding the bare cupboard.

Used to be standard about the time a young quarterback matures.

I'll venture to guess there will be 14-17 new players on the Chiefs squad in 2013, minimum.

Reid is either stupid, incorrect, or purposefully obtuse when he states that the Chiefs were transitioning from an older to a younger team.

While this was true when ***** came on board and began shitting all over the franchise, it is not true today.

Oh, we have a lot of young players. Unfortunately, most of them are pretty average.

Sure, but so does any other team. The ones who actually play and contribute, the foundational pieces, are Carl leftovers.

If anything, we're getting old in our positions of greatest strength.

Being one who definitely ranted that he just HAS to take some time off, i enjoyed his response to that question... for a guy like him, not having something intense to do would probably be worse for him, this isnt just his career, its his hobby and passion all rolled into one. The fact that he has is son with him should be a major plus, glad my team can facilitate some good old fashioned bonding.

Also loved his feeling about the Hunts and KC tradition in general, thats why i've never understood why this team was completely ignored so bad for so long, why it took a major fan revolt to get the media talking about whats going on here... the Hunts ARE a bedrock NFL family and their team is in a football MAD city.

Ah well, its really starting to feel like our irrelevance is about to come to a screeching halt.
