Andy Reid says Chiefs had headset problems against Patriots
The Patriots advanced to yet another AFC Championship Game with a win over the Chiefs Saturday night. As usual, the conspiracy theories have been rolling in.
Kansas City coach Andy Reid said after the game that his team experienced some issues with their electronic communications in the first half. Apparently quarterback Alex Smith was unable to hear the calls from the coaching staff, though Reid noted that the headsets were working fine after that.
As The Associated Press notes, Reid said the headsets malfunctioned “just a little bit, not much,” and that he did not think there was anything unusual about it.
Before people start bringing up the allegations the Steelers hurled at the Patriots when the two teams met in Week 1, keep in mind that the Seahawks also had problems with their electronic communications in their playoff game against the Vikings last week. Rex Ryan said the same thing happened earlier this season at the place where he used to coach.
Headset issues are quite common, but everything involving the Patriots gets magnified. Although, we still aren’t quite sure what the deal was with the fire alarm going off at the Chiefs’ team hotel. Bill Belichick always keeps us guessing.
