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."

I'm hopeful this means we may actually spend some $$$ in Free Agency.

IMO most FAs are over-rated. They have given their best ball already to get to that point. You used FA's to fill holes and bring in that last piece of the puzzle.

I think it's mostly on the defensive side of the ball, where Herm/Carl and Pioli spent most of their top draft picks.

The offensive line is young, but talented. A line needs to build continuity. Hudson's return and an off-season with a real coach is going to help these guys tremendously. Asamoah should break out. Allen and Stephenson got their feet wet guarding retards. There is depth at the WR position. Charles is as good as it gets.

Unfortunately, the entire defensive line, where all those #1's were spent, is the big question mark. Linebackers are solid with DJ being very good, as it Hali and Houston. Flowers is a stud. Berry is an excellent run defender, but needs to make a big jump in pass protection. No depth at S or CB with Brown looking like a special teams ace at best and Lewis perpetually injured.

If they make the right picks, I think they could get starters at the key positions (QB, CB, FS, ILB, DE) in the first four rounds of this next draft (assuming a third comp for Carr).

1. Geno Smith at QB
2. David Amerson, Xavier Rhodes or Jon Banks at CB
3. Phillip Thomas at Safety
3. Jon Bostic at MLB
4. Joe Kruger at DE

Based on the Packer's model, no. We won't be spending any money in free agency, outside of the selective pickup here or there...

Yep, 3 years is the average NFL career so essentially he's saying we have nothing but shit at many positions.

Well, yeah, I mean we were 2-14. 22 guys off the street, right?

I think, however, that in three decent drafts you're really talking about 5 or 6 starters and maybe twice that many depth players. Which I'd say's about right, wouldn't you?

I don't think that good teams go into the season looking to replace 17 players.

Sure, you might lose a couple to free agency and maybe you've drafted 4-5 guys that are immediately ready for the 53 man roster.

But 17? 1/3 of your roster?

That's quite a bit of turnover for a "good" team.

Is Cullen Jenkins a free agent again?

God I hope we could convince him to come to Kansas City. We need to find a LEGITIMATE starter on the defensive line for the first ****ing time since the 90s. Jenkins played for Reid and was a HUGE part of the Packers' success in their Super Bowl run a few years ago. He would go so far to improving our defensive line.

EDIT: "Jenkins agreed to a five-year deal with the Eagles last July, but reportedly was to be paid over $7 million in 2012, including the $5 million roster bonus due next month. So his future with the team wasn't guaranteed unless the sides could agree to rework his contract."

****.

Combine that with bad coaching and you get 2-14...

He is not stupid, he is not going to say one draft and we are there, geez.

He has to give himself room when he can, or he would be raising expectations to a point like they were this year for the team.

If it gets done in one year, great, he is the hero.

There will be roster turnover. We were 2-14. We have some good players like Charles, Bowe, Albert, Winston, Hali, Houston, DJ, Flowers, Berry, etc. but overall depth is awful. There will be turnover especially because Pioli was a shit talent evaluator.
