Well, if you listened to Kansas City’s detractors, then of course, the Chiefs can do many things to get better. After all, they’re not even that good, right?
With that said, even Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid understands that his team still has room to improve.
“You give me every phase and there’s going to be a phase that we need to get better at within that phase, whether it’s as a group collectively or if it’s as an individual,” Reid said in a recent press conference.
“That’s how this thing goes. I’ve said this before, it’s like being a farmer because you’re never, never, never done. It might be an individual player stepping with the right foot, the proper foot, going in whatever direction and not under stepping himself, whether it’s an offensive lineman or defensive lineman,” he said.
“It’s that detailed and yet very broad. That’s a loaded question, a good question, but those are all of the things that we’re working on. You can’t stand up here publicly, that’s for the other coach to try to discover and has to work on. It’s like an artist, only the artist knows where the mistakes are and you look at it from a non-artistic eye.””
For Chiefs fans, this answer should be exciting. Extremely exciting.
The Chiefs are the best team in the NFL right now, by record at least, and they’re on top of the AFC West. This is after going 2-14 a year ago, mind you, so getting content here or feeling on top of the world could almost be tolerated, and at least understood.
That’s not the mindset Reid is taking though, and at the end of the day, that’s what’s going to make this team great.
No matter how good they have been, they’re always looking to get better. That type of mentality starts at the top, so credit the head coach.
Because of that mindset, weaknesses will improve, the team will grow, and ultimately, a contender will be born.
