So, Andy Reid is off to Kansas City to coach the Chiefs, which just so happens to be the official second-favorite NFL team of the staff here at BoopStats. So much so, in fact, I'm wearing a Kansas City Chiefs golf shirt (right) as we type this.
Personally, after suffering through the end of the Eagles' Reid era, I'm not quite as anxious as you'd think I'd be as he heads to KC. For one thing, I won't be able to watch every game and monitor every play as I do the Eagles, since I'll still be in Philly helping to shed statistical light on our No. 1 team. Secondly, I've never seen a Chiefs Monday head coach press conference on television and I don't anticipate that I'm going to start seeing them anytime soon. And third — and you may not agree with me on this one — he's going to end up winning out there. And when he does, I'll be a happy camper.
Now, if only my life-long dream of an Eagles-Chiefs Super Bowl would come to light ...
All that being said, below are how the two franchises compare in various won-loss records through the seasons. Notice that in the Super Bowl era (since 1966), the teams are within two regular seasom wins of each other, and are 14th (Chiefs, .506) and 15th (Eagles, .504) in winning percentage.
