While Super Bowl LIV is approaching, Andy Reid and Kyle Shanahan have a lot to think about. One thing is how to rewrite their legacy during the big game. Reid, who is the 61-year old head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, along with Shanahan, the 40-year-old head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, have yet to win a Super Bowl ring. However, they both sure know how to lose one. This is something that both coaches will be reminded of until the big game on February 2nd, 2020.
Andy Reid is returning to the big game for the 2nd time in his career as a head coach and for the 1st time in 15 years. He failed to get the Philadelphia Eagles ready to play against the New England Patriots during his one-and-done season. Shanahan, on the other hand, was Atlanta’s offensive coordinator and was one of the reasons for their big meltdown during the Super Bowl three years ago. He helped give Bill Belichick another ring, and his play calling in the 4th quarter also angered his quarterback, Matt Ryan.
Over the years, Mike Shanahan has been quite honest and accountable when assessing his role in the disaster. Andy Reid has also been those things when questioned about his inability to get a ring. Only six men in professional NFL history have won more games than Andy Reid has. From the outside looking in, Reid has never been bitter about his situation.
There’s only one way to settle the curse or haunting of both NFL coaches, along with the
thoughts and questions from peers talking football. This time, both Andy Reid and Kyle
Shanahan should be doing the haunting this time around come Super Bowl LIV.
The big game, Super Bowl LIV, is scheduled for February 2nd, 2020 and will be played at Miami Gardens, Florida.
