All-Time Andy Reid Team
I love Andy Reid. One of the top coaches in NFL history. Feel like he's the Marty Schottenheimer of this generation -- a guy who could take over just about any team in the NFL and win. But that shouldn't take away from the fact that he has had some damn good players. In compiling this team, I'm putting it together for a one-year run -- not judging somebody's entire career. And you can probably tell where that statement is leading us.
Note 1: Yes, I cheated (per usual) and selected 12 defenders. That's because Reid is a genius who makes the most of his talent and isn't so rigid that he can't move from a 4-3 in Philly to a 3-4 in K.C. That's why he's successful. Unlike offensive coordinators who think that their precious unit can't handle a tight end, so you TRADE AWAY GREG OLSEN. ARE YOU LISTENING, MIKE MARTZ? Long story short, I've supplied personnel for a 4-3 and a 3-4.
Note 2: The time each player spent under Reid is listed parenthetically.
