Andy Reid “Boxes Out” Philip Rivers on Chiefs’ Sideline (GIF)

Philip Rivers is known for his brash on-field personality, and apparently Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid wanted nothing to do with it.

In the second half of Kansas City’s 38-41 loss to the Chargers, Rivers found himself near the Chiefs’ sideline and was apparently running his mouth to Reid.

To be fair, he could have been saying something funny or he could have been talking trash. I don’t know what he said, so let’s not get on his case for that—it could have been all in good fun.

What I do know is that Reid wanted nothing to do with what Rivers was saying, and he gave him the old cold shoulder, kind of.

Here’s the GIF, via



Okay, so perhaps it was more so of a box-out or “butt bump” as GIFDSports called it, but either way, it was arguably one of the bright spots of Kansas City’s loss today.

Sure, Alex Smith’s 294 yards and three touchdowns probably make the list, as would Jamaal Charles’ 115 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, but coming off such a heartbreaking loss—I prefer to focus on this powerful move by the Chiefs’ head man.

Unfortunately, despite Reid’s best efforts, Rivers was able to lead the Chargers to the win, throwing for 392 yards and three touchdowns in the process.

    Yeah, he also boxed out the Chiefs from a win with that stupid timeout with 82 seconds left. We had this game won. I am sick that he gave the Chargers just they needed most……..more time.

      Doesn’t matter – defense lost this game, not clock mismanagement. Or did you not watch the whole game?

        Damn right, I watched the game. Yeah, the defense was gassed and we were without H2, but the fact remains, if Reid does not call that timeout, and the Chargers have to spend a t.o. then Rivers just does not have enough time to complete that last TD pass.

    look for that tomorrow night on ESPN C’mon Man, along with the punt pass and kick of Andy Reid weve seen a thousand times

  • Erik Hild

    Secondary looked bad today

    I laughed SOOOOOOOO hard when I saw this in real time. I told my people I was watching the game that by the way Reid turned around and the way Rivers thru his hands up that it appeared Reid said “Hey man, get off my ass!” and Rivers responded “I didn’t mean it, I thought you were someone else or I didnt mean it!” Andy Reid is hilarious!! Not happy about losing at home, still pissed beyond belief but this did give me some comic relief…
