CNN: Andy Reid Laughs Off Super Bowl Spat with Travis Kelce

‘He tested that hip out’: Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid laughs off Super Bowl spat with Travis Kelce

It was footage that quickly became a meme, but Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid laughed off his spat with tight end Travis Kelce during the team’s 25-22 Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Angered that Reid had taken him out of the game during the first half, Kelce pushed the 65-year-old so hard on the sideline that the Chiefs head coach momentarily lost his balance, while the tight end continued to shout in his face.

Kelce was eventually pulled away by teammate Jerick McKinnon.

“He keeps me young,” Reid laughed on CBS’ post-game show. “He tested that hip out. He caught me off balance – normally, I’d give him a little bit, but I didn’t have any feet under me.”

Reid later reiterated in his post-match press conference that he only stumbled because Kelce caught him off balance, adding that it just shows the tight end’s desire to win.

“The part I love is that he loves to play the game and he wants to help his team win,” Reid told reporters. “It’s not a selfish thing, that’s not what it is, and I understand that.

“So as much as he bumps into me, I get after him and we understand that.”

Kelce told ESPN after the game that he was going to keep what was said “between us” and joked that he was just telling Reid “how much I love him.”

“I got the greatest coach this game has ever seen,” Kelce told reporters after the game. “He’s unbelievable at not only dialing up plays and having everybody prepared, but he’s one of the best leaders of men I’ve ever seen in my life.

“He’s helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion and I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to kind of control how emotional I get.

“I just love him, man.”

Speed_Kills69February 12, 2024 05:41AM

Speed_Kills58February 12, 2024 06:01AM

  Most people are riled up when they lose control. Hell, Corad Dobler had more self control

  I don't know why, but I wasn't bothered by it at all.

alyoshamucci53February 12, 2024 09:26AM

  EXACTLY why it's a problem. Acceptance. Was it a hard core physical act? NO WAY!

Ramgator27February 12, 2024 10:06AM

  My take

waterfield56February 12, 2024 09:28AM

  Not an excuse for lack of self control

Ramgator42February 12, 2024 10:09AM

  Self control ?

waterfield31February 12, 2024 11:24AM

  Boxing is violent. FOOTBALL is violent!

Ramgator31February 12, 2024 11:38AM

  He did not push him

headslapper29February 12, 2024 11:46AM

  You're right. As I watched closer. But still zero need to get in his face that aggressively.

Ramgator20February 12, 2024 11:53AM

  I'm with you on this one, Gator....

JamesJM31February 12, 2024 12:00PM

  You guys are conflating issues

waterfield33February 12, 2024 01:18PM

  Not really...

JamesJM26February 12, 2024 01:41PM

  Re: Not really...

waterfield30February 12, 2024 02:36PM

  I don 't think he meant to bump him.

RockRam33February 12, 2024 12:32PM

  Yup, the bump is irrelevant...

  Reid Srugged it off after the game like it was nothing and probably nothing to him

BerendsenRam18February 12, 2024 01:44PM

  That's what this board is about. Discussion and different opinions.

Ramgator22February 12, 2024 01:54PM

  His post game speech was worse

headslapper35February 12, 2024 02:24PM

  Not the SB but the greatest post game display from a player...
