4. Reid was also asked about how the team determines its game plan from week to week without giving too much away for later rounds.
“It’s single elimination and you know that. There is no next week. That’s not how this thing works,” Reid explained. “You don’t hold a whole lot back. You’re going to give it your best shot. Does everything work? Well, that’s not always the case, but you’re going to try to make everything the right thing. That’s how you go about it, whether it’s new, old, bland – whatever it is. Give your guys an opportunity to perform at a high level. As a coach, that’s what you want to do.”
5. Finally, Reid spoke about what he believes a victory on Saturday would mean to Kansas City.
“I haven’t got that far ahead, but I know how passionate the fans are. I know how passionate our players, coaches [and everyone in] the building is. I know it’s important to a lot of folks,” Reid said. “The guys here are busting their tails to get ready to play a good football team and to do the best we possibly can. I know our fans are going to be there doing the same thing, so they’re going to be fired up and ready to go. That to me is a beautiful thing. You prepare, you prepare, you prepare, and then you put your best out there and go play and that’s what this thing is all about. We look forward to that challenge.”
