After a 14-year term as the head coach of the Eagles, Andy Reid left Philadelphia (well, he was fired) this offseason with more wins against the hated Dallas Cowboys than any other head coach in history. Asked to explain the success he’s had against “America’s Team” in a conference call, the Chiefs’ new head coach joked that it was simply a matter of avoiding being fired for so long.
“Probably because I survived in the NFC East so long,” Reid joked, per the Dallas Morning News. “It was probably just by chance, just having been in that division so long.”
For a former Eagles fixture, Reid has plenty of good things to say about the Cowboys, doling out praise for Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and, not at least, owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
“They got a great owner in Jerry Jones,” Reid said. “Jason [Garrett], I have a ton of respect for and not just because he’s a red head. I’ve got a ton of respect for him as a football coach and as a person. They do it the right way.”
