2) He doesn't emphasize the run game and it always bites him in the ass when they struggle in the red zone. Ever watch his teams try to punch it in from one or two yards out? It's pretty pathetic.
3) For whatever reason he hitched his wagon to Vick and that was his downfall in Philly. He drafted Kolb but he turned out to be a bust. The only good thing that came out of that was that he fleeced the Cardinals in that trade but that left him without a quarterback to groom. Vick should have been a band aid for a real quarterback to step in. Now he's seemingly making the same mistake with Alex Smith. History repeats itself and that's why you see so many people who are ultra critical of Reid's short tenure in KC already.
I agree, he had Lashaun McCoy in Philly and he continually just ignored him. Instead having Vick throw the ball 30-40 times a game. If I remember correctly in one of Philly's close loses Vick threw the ball 57 times.
If he brings this philosophy to KC they won't win 5 games this year.
