Andy Reid seems like a likable guy, unless you’re a Chargers fan.
He’s only been the coach of the Chiefs since 2013, but in that time, he’s owned the Chargers. After losing the first two against them, Reid and his team have managed to win eight in a row over their division rival and directly prevented them from making the playoffs last year with a key December victory at Arrowhead Stadium.
Reid always has his team ready to play and though Chargers fans may be celebrating the fact that a young, inexperienced quarterback will get the ball for the Chiefs in 2018, they can’t be overconfident because Reid always finds a way to beat them.
Prior to Reid coming to Kansas City, the Chargers were enjoying great success within the rivalry. Between 2007 and 2012, the Chargers won nine out of 12 games between the teams.
Reid was brought in to succeed Romeo Crennel and everything changed. If you include his time as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Reid holds a 10-3 career record against the Chargers.
The Chargers know that if they want to make a deep postseason run in 2018, the Chiefs are going to be the big hurdle they’ll have to prove they can get over. Reid will be prepared to make sure that doesn’t happen.
