The folks at Pro Football Focus believe that Andy Reid is the NFL’s third-best head coach coming into the 2022 season.

In an offseason of significant turmoil on the Kansas City Chiefs roster, one area that is going to help a youth movement lock into place sooner than later is the presence of a veteran head coach and a stable support staff. In short, the Chiefs are quite fortunate to have Andy Reid.

In their latest round of offseason rankings, Pro Football Focus has turned its attention to the various head coaches of the National Football League in an attempt to rank them all from top to bottom. When it comes to Chiefs concerns (pun intended), Reid comes in early at No. 3 overall.

The league’s best head coach, per PFF, should be no secret as Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots has long earned that title after helping his franchise win six Super Bowl titles in his tenure with the team. From there it is interesting to see John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens come in at No. 2 overall when the Ravens haven’t won anything big for quite some time.

Longevity and a Super Bowl victory are key facets of being ranked so highly, but the Chiefs’ run of sustained success in their own division and Reid’s part in helping the ship move along makes it surprising that he’s not in second place here.  Maybe another strong season from the Chiefs even after trading away Tyreek Hill and letting Charvarius Ward, Anthony Hitchens, and Tyrann Mathieu walk in free agency will be enough to put him over Harbaugh on a similar list next offseason.

As for the rest of the list, it comes with plenty of other questions, including the placement of Kliff Kingsbury at No. 4 overall.
