Big Red has his ring.
Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions after defeating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Super Bowl LIV, 31-20. The victory gives Reid his first Super Bowl win since he became a head coach 21 years ago in 1999.
Reid's first Super Bowl win came in epic fashion, as the Chiefs were down 10 points going into the fourth quarter, only to score three touchdowns to secure the championship.
The moment has to be a bittersweet one for Eagles fans. On one hand, plenty of fans were rooting for Reid to win on Sunday, and have to be happy to see a coach that gave so much to organization finally win a ring. Some fans, however, likely feel upset it never happened in Philadelphia.
Reid coached for the Eagles for 14 seasons, totaling 224 regular season wins, 10 playoff wins and one NFC Championship. Despite all of his success on the Eagles’ sideline as head coach, many fans still only remember Reid for his shortcomings, like his four losses in NFC title games and his 2004 loss to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Speaking earlier in the week on 94WIP with Jon Marks and Ike Reese, Reid spoke glowingly of his time in Philadelphia.
"I loved my time in Philadelphia," Reid said. "I mean I was there 14 years, that's a long time versus life. We had some great times. The support was phenomenal, always phenomenal, and I appreciated that.”
