Reid is now among names like Bill Belichick and Don Shula. Of all the coaches with 200 or more wins, only Reid and Marty Schottenheimer are without a championship ring. The difference between the two is that Reid still has a shot at the ever-elusive Super Bowl.
The Kansas City Chiefs currently sit at 5-2, and atop the AFC West. His crew, led by reigning MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes is pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Even better, the Chiefs will likely clinch a top two seed, meaning home field advantage at least until the AFC championship game (assuming the team makes it that far). It’s hard to envision any team but the New England Patriots cutting down Reid’s team in the playoffs. If Reid can finally coach his team past the buzzsaw that is New England, there’s a great shot at a ring. Currently, there isn’t a single NFC team that looks better than Kansas City. Both the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers carry a certain level of inexperience that usually translates into an early playoff exit.
