    Yes, but if anybody looked past just the number of wins and losses, they would see a team that had 6 pro-bowlers last year despite their league-worst record (clearly underperforming to their talent level). This year they would see that they only beat the Eagles and a bunch of garbage teams. That's with the benefit of an amazingly favorable schedule, including an outrageous number of games with teams playing 2nd and 3rd string QBs (including 2 rookie UDFAs in their first NFL games). As soon as they actually faced some adversity they dropped every game against any team that wasn't in the bottom 5% of the league.
    All of that is true. Although I would add that KC didn't deserve 6 Pro Bowlers last year. They have talent, but almost all of their best defensive players took a nose dive production wise once the Chiefs played better teams. Sure, there was more to work with then a typical 2-14 team and KC did upgrade the most important position (went from God awful to average/above average at QB).

    Still, when you go from the complete embarrassment of the NFL, to a team that was competitive with the majority of games and have a 9 game improvement, you're going to win some awards.

    When you coach the greatest defense in the history of the NFL you deserve coach of the year.

    Although that doesn't explain how Reid got it...

    same with reid. he will transform one of the leagues top 3 RBs into just another receiver.
    buy stock in twinkies and catsup and stay tuned.

    Reid assembled a team that could execute a limited game plan and stay in games late. If they upgrade their WR's and OL they can improve on the dink and dunk success Smith is still too inaccurate down field to do it consistently. They need too much on the Defensive side of the ball to be much more than 8-8 next year especially with SD improving.

    Kind of odd that Chip Kelly was able to come in and get Reid's old team just as far. I would have given it to Belly or Rico but kFc was a media favorite all year.

    and once again, Chiefs will be able to enjoy their Super Bowl from Honolulu.

    Their record last year was not indicative of their talent level and their record this year would have been closer to 9-7 had they not lucked into maybe the easiest schedule ever put together, when key injuries are taken into account for the opposition. You can't fault Reid, but he didn't deserve that award. They should have been a middling team last year and they should have been a slightly better middling team this year. Epically poor coaching last year and luck this year made Reid's impact seem more impressive than it was.

    I would share that award with Tom Brady then as he did a pretty good job with nobody to throw to this season. BB does deserve some mention but Reid took a 2-14 team and got them into the playoffs to rip out the hearts, once again, for those fans.

    Gifted a 9-0 start with cupcakes and back-ups, then goes 2-5 down the stretch when playoff position is on the line. 2nd worst playoff choke in recorded history.

    Chiefs record against playoff teams 1-7.

    Yeah, coach of the year.

    I agree that McCoy should be AFC Coach of the Year as the SD team had many injuries and they beat KC twice and won a playoff game.

    McCoy should have got it, not Reid.
