4 hopeful headlines: can Andy Reid win coach of the year?


The 2014 NFL season is exactly six weeks away and we’re ramping up our speculation machine to full throttle here at cover32. If you’re curious to find out what will happen this year and don’t want to go through that whole messy business of waiting to find out, we’ve got you covered.

So dim the lights, turn your fog machine on and gaze into the crystal ball. Yoda said it best – the future is always in motion. Things could go well, and they could break bad. For now let’s take a look at the brighter side: here’s four hopeful headlines for the Kansas City Chiefs 2014 season.

1. Andy Reid wins coach of the year

In my mind it was a total travesty that Ron Rivera won this award last year and not Andy Reid. The coach of the year is supposed to go to the guy who does the most with what he’s given.

Rivera had a Pro Bowl quarterback and one of the top defenses in the NFL at his disposal.

Meanwhile Andy Reid came in to a floundering Kansas City franchise that lost 14 games and turned them into a playoff team in one of the more competitive divisions in football. He installed a new offense, a new quarterback and finally brought respectability to town.

If the Chiefs can improve on last year’s 11-5 mark then he should be a shoe-in for coach of the year.
