The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a heart-breaking loss in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs last weekend, when Andrew Luck led the Indianapolis Colts on an epic comeback that was the second-largest in NFL postseason history.
Unfortunately, the loss left a sour taste in the mouths of Chiefs fans across the world, but it doesn’t take away from all that they were able to accomplish in 2013.
While the loss may still sting, the good news for Chiefs fans is that head coach Andy Reid plans to keep his coaching staff intact for next season as the team looks to build on the momentum they gained this season during their improbably turnaround.
“One advantage I have is I’m with these guys all day, every day, so I get to evaluate them every day and watch them work every day,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “If I’ve got my mind made up on something like that, I can kind of give it to you now.
“Do we need to improve? Absolutely. Starting with me, we’ve got to get better. But we did make good strides … my thing is, people need to know that this year, we were shooting to win it all. Obviously, we weren’t good enough, so we’ve got to improve as players and coaches. Hopefully, we’ve learned from this so we can take that next step.”
Kansas City will now focus on their offseason plan and look to continue improving their roster, but the fact that their coaching staff will be remaining together cannot be understated.
Being a cohesive unit is just as important as anything in the NFL and the Chiefs coaching staff will be able to continue building their chemistry and working together.
