While Andy Reid seems to be really happy as the new head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, he undoubtedly has mixed emotions going into Thursday night's contest against his old team the Philadelphia Eagles. And at least one of his new players has his back. Running back Jamaal Charles told Ed Werder of ESPN that the Chiefs badly want to help Reid rule in Philly.
"It means a lot, so I hope we go out there and play for our coach," Charles told Werder following Sunday's victory over the Dallas Cowboys. "You know what I'm saying? I know he has a lot of love for his Eagles, he worked there a lot of years and he probably wishes he was still coaching there." Reid, the winningest coach in Eagles history, posted a 130-93-1 record with Philadelphia, guiding the team to five NFC Championship games, eight division titles and an appearance in Super Bowl XXXIX.
