The Kansas City Chiefs will play in the Super Bowl for the third time in the past five years.
Ever since Patrick Mahomes took over as a starter, they haven’t gone home earlier than the AFC Championship Game.
So, a win on Sunday might as well give them dynasty status, all things considered.
And, of course, as much as Mahomes should be credited for their surge, head coach Andy Reid also deserves all the flowers he could get.
Reid has put together one of the strongest rosters in the NFL, talent-wise.
But more than that, he’s also become quite close to his players, a father figure in most cases, and that’s why they’re all willing to go to war and run through a wall for him every day of the week.
At least, that’s how Chiefs star Frank Clark feels, as he claimed during a heartfelt speech explaining what made Reid so special:
“I’ve actually been fortunate enough to see the other side of him where I’ve had a lot of conversations with him from that standpoint and just helping me become a better father, helping me understand life a little bit more and some of my tougher situations that I’ve had to endure over the last two years,” Clark said.

Of course, Reid is one of the greatest offensive masterminds in NFL history, and he’s a lock to be inducted into the Hall of Fame once his coaching days are over.
But it’s not the personal records, the résumé, or even the teams he’s led to a victory that will make people remember him long after he’s gone from this plane.
It’ll be his personality and how much he cared for his players, his staff members, and everybody within the organizations he worked with that will make people praise coach Reid until the end of the time.NEXT: Key Chiefs WR Is Trying To Play In Upcoming Super Bowl
