Colin Cowherd is known for his controversial and often nonsensical takes while hosting The Herd on Fox Sports.
Cowherd’s most recent controversial take came earlier this week when he suggested that Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid could be remembered one day as a better coach than New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
Here’s Cowherd’s take:
Andy Reid in last 3 years: 38-11
Bill Belichick in last 3 years: 29-20
“Don’t be surprised if you look at Andy’s last 10 years and Belichick’s and there aren’t arguments to be made on who we’re calling the greatest coach of all time.” — @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/FD9Mu246Kt

Look, I think Reid is a great coach. One of the greatest of all time. He’s 203-135 in his career as a head coach with a Super Bowl ring and two other Super Bowl appearances. Reid has only missed the playoffs six times in his 23-year career as a head coach.
It’s an impressive resumé and there’s no doubt that Reid is a Hall of Famer.
But Belichick is on another level.
Belichick has the NFL record for most Super Bowl wins by a head coach (6), most Super Bowl appearances (9), and most playoff wins (31). His consistency over his 22 years in New England has been remarkable (only missing the playoffs three times — and one of those years the Patriots were 11-5).
Reid is elite. And it has to be flattering to be compared to Belichick. But this isn’t even a debate. Like him or not, Belichick is the goat when it comes to NFL head coaches. Numbers don’t lie.
