Travis Kelce Formally Apologize to Coach Andy Reid and Chiefs fans On New Podcast Over Shoved Attitude to Reid and for Throwing his helmet in Super Bowl meltdown
During the second quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs win over the San Francisco 49ers, Travis Kelce’s frustrations got the better of him and head coach Andy Reid bore the brunt.
Kelce was visibly annoyed at being taken out of the game after Isiah Pacheco fumbled the ball in the red zone.
He proceeded to scream in 65-year-old Reid’s face on the sidelines and barge into his coach, who was taken by surprise and stumbled.
A raging Kelce had to led away by teammate Jerrod McKinnon and told to calm down.
Analysing the incident at half-time, CBS’ Boomer Esiason said it showed the frustration the Chiefs were under.
But by the end, all was forgotten as the Chiefs closed out a thrilling victory – with Kelce and Reid both laughing off the incident.
Speaking of Reid following the Chiefs’ victory, Kelce told reporters: “I got the greatest coach this game has ever seen, he’s unbelievable.
“He’s unbelievable at not only dialing up plays and having everybody prepared, but he’s one of the best leaders of men I have ever seen in my life.
“He’s helped me a lot with that. With channelling that emotion, channelling that passion.
