Andy Reid apparently believes Mozart was a painter
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid may know his football, but when it comes to legendary musical composers, well, let’s just say his knowledge is lacking.
Earlier this season, in a video no making the rounds all over again, Reid referenced Mozart following his team’s 4-0 start, but he was telling his players about Mozart’s “paintings”:

Well, I guess it has “art” in the name?
The good news is that Reid’s musical/art knowledge does not matter to the Chiefs. They just want him to go out there and lead the club to its first Super Bowl since the 1969-70 campaign.
Kansas City won 12 games this season and captured its fourth straight AFC West division title, locking up a first-round bye in the process.
The Chiefs then went on to rally from a 24-0 deficit to beat the Houston Texans by a score of 51-31 in their Divisional Round playoff matchup last week, setting up an AFC Championship Game showdown with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Kansas City also made it to the conference title game last year, where it ultimately fell to the New England Patriots in overtime.
Prior to this year, the Chiefs had never made it to the AFC Championship Game in consecutive years, so Reid already has this franchise in uncharted territory.
However, throughout Reid’s long NFL career that also included a 14-year run as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, he has only made it to one Super Bowl, which came back during the 2004-05 campaign when the Eagles lost to the Patriots.
Reid is looking to not only make it to another Super Bowl, but to win his first one.
Mozart would be proud.
