Andy Reid compares his talent at a buffet to Peyton Manning’s talent on a football field
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spent most of his press conference on Wednesday discussing the situation with wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who was arrested and charged for possession of marijuana on Sunday after being caught speeding. But Big Red did maintain a sense of humor and even made a hilarious comparison later in the presser.
After moving on from the Bowe subject, Reid was asked about the Denver Broncos’ offense, which the Chiefs will face on Sunday night.
Reid, of course, praised Peyton Manning, who has been stellar this season and leads the NFL with 3,249 passing yards and 33 touchdown passes. Reid praised Manning for his smarts as much as his physical ability. That led someone (supposedly another heavy-set gentleman) to ask if Manning’s mind and brain are responsible for his success as much as anything else. That’s when Reid busted out his crowd-pleasing line.
“I would tell you he’s talented. There’s talent there. You and I could do this at a buffet, but he does it on the football field. There’s some athletic ability that takes place there. He’s got that figured out.”
I dunno, Reid’s in that upper-echelon of elite eaters. He might actually be better in a buffet than Manning is on a football field. That’s a close call.
