Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.
Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.
Welcome to The Morning (Afternoon) Fix.
–Thursday night will be a memorable one for the Kansas City Chiefs and Chiefs’ Kingdom in general, as the team takes on Andy Reid’s former employer of 14 years, the Philadelphia Eagles. Chip Kelly is the Eagles’ new head coach and he’s installed his famous up-tempo Oregon-esque offense. Here’s what Reid had to say about that offense, per a recent press release on KCChiefs.com:
“It’s exciting; it’s an exciting offense. Chip (Kelly) has done a heck of a job with installing it and getting a lot done in a short period of time there. The obvious is the production. The numbers there are great, so you know it carries over from the college level. You see high schools and colleges doing it now, really predominantly, throughout the country. It made that transition into the National Football League and it looks like he’s done that very well.”
Reid also talked about his homecoming of sorts:
“Honestly, I haven’t gone there. That’s not how my mind works. I’m pretty simple with that. They don’t care whether I think about them or don’t think about them; as a matter of fact, they’d probably be happy if I was thinking about them and getting caught up in the emotions as opposed to thinking about them as a good football team. I don’t want to go there. That’s not what I’m going to do. This is about our football team, it’s not about me, it’s not a one-man show. It has nothing to do with that; that was demonstrated when we had the opportunity to play the Cowboys. That was a team effort. This will take a team effort, when we play the Philadelphia Eagles. That’s what I believe in and I know.”
It’s great to see Kansas City’s coach focusing on what’s best for the team and not getting caught up in the moment.
