Reid's return happens on a short week so the coverage is condensed into four days but it is no secret that Reid will be back roaming the sidelines of the Linc but not the one we are used to him roaming. The players on both teams realize the moment at hand and seem genuinely in good spirits about the event.
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was very supportive and understanding of Reid's return to the city he called home for 14 seasons when speaking with ESPN this weekend. What was interesting was what Charles said about Reid's connection with the area and that he believes Reid "wishes he was still coaching" the Eagles.
When you sit back and think about it, it does make sense and it isn't a slap in the face to Kansas City. If he were still in Philadelphia, that would mean the Eagles A) won a Super Bowl or B) had enough success without a Super Bowl that it was impossible for Jeffrey Lurie to get rid of Reid.
He had a ton of success in his 14 years as head coach of the Eagles. His resume in Philadelphia includes one Super Bowl, five NFC Championship appearances, six NFC East division titles, nine playoff appearances, and 130 regular season wins.
Reid should be cheered for what he did in Philadelphia, not booed for what he didn't do. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, the fact remains that fans are behind Chip Kelly 100% and would love to send Reid back to Kansas City with a 2-1 record.
