Andy Reid Makes Strengths Of Weaknesses

When the Chiefs were facing a fourth-quarter 4th-and-1, hope looked like it had left the building.

Five seconds later, Charles was brushing his shoulders off in the end zone.

Obviously, the ankle-breaking assassin deserves the lion’s share of credit, but Andy Reid is one of a handful of coaches who would dare call said play.

The Bills were expecting an inside handoff, but Kansas City’s coach knew the offensive line wasn’t about to bully Dareus. That being the case, the Chiefs baited Buffalo with an inside fake and shovel-passed to the weak side.

When I try this in Madden, it ends with four letters and calling Phil Simms a country bumpkin. When Reid dials it up in reality, it goes for seven.

Translation: Artificial intelligence is the only thing that predicts Reid’s brand of crazy, and every form of Phil Simms is annoying.
