Another NFL Black Monday has come and gone. Let the rumor and debate begin. Andy Reid’s resume speaks for itself; 14 years as a head coach with 7 division championships, a conference championship and now the unemployment line although not for long. Where will he coach next? Speaking of unemployment, what will come of Michael Vick? I have an idea. The logical landing points for Andy Reid are the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. To me this is a no brainer, it is Kansas City and here is why.
The Chiefs have the 8th youngest team in the NFL while the Arizona Cardinals are 29th out of 32 on that same list. Kansas City has 2x Pro Bowl RB Jamal Charles while Arizona has a committee of would be arena league or CFL players at RB. Kansas City had 5 players selected to this year’s Pro Bowl while Arizona sends less. Let’s face it; the current state of the AFC West is far worse than the NFC West. Sure there is the Denver Payton Manning’s but other than that are a hapless Oakland and San Diego respectively.
Then there is Michael Vick. Andy take Vick with you to Kansas City! It goes like this (hypothetically of course), “Michael come with me to Kansas City. I will line up Jamal Charles behind you and give you McCluster, Baldwin, Moleki and Bowe to throw to and I will even through in a decent offensive line. You know that thing you did not have in Philly; sorry about that again.” Rotoworld ranked the Chiefs O-Line at 4th going into this season and the Cardinals O-Line at 30. That’s right 30 out of 32. Did you see the QB shuffle in Arizona as starter after starter ran for their lives? I know I did.
Andy takes Vick with him and then has the number one pick in this year’s draft to pick up his heir apparent and let him sit for two or three years grooming him. Someone like a Geno Smith out of West Virginia or Matt Barkley from USC would fit the bill and the Chiefs could even trade down a bit and still get either one of them while increasing the “future crop” through the draft.
Is it a perfect fit? Given the situation, I do not see any place for Andy to go other than Kansas City but Andy, don’t forget Vick! Please don’t forget Vick!
