The “N” in NFL often stands for nepotism, a fact of football life for as long as ownership of franchises has passed from one generation to the next.

:sign0094:. Not so sure about this move. It's a great opportunity for his son, but I'm surprised there wasn't a more qualified candidate than a kid who has spent 1 year as an assistant DL coach.

Yeah....not much fond of this move either. But let's face facts. Head coaches are human. And humans try to look out for their kids. Same deal his last year in Philly when his son killed himself with drugs. Reid tries to help his kids. Wouldn't you?

Andy Reid is human and therefore by definition has faults. Like clock management. And kid management.

So long as this does not affect the cap then who cares? Here is an idea for you...maybe this is just Hunt's way of paying Reid's $75,000 tampering fee. I actually kind of like that idea. :)

I'm all about the Chiefs and I really don't much care if some of Clark Hunt's money gets wasted taking care of Andy Reid's kids so long as it doesn't hurt the Chiefs. A hundred grand one way or the other won't hurt Clark Hunt.

I've given my brother and sister jobs many times that they were not qualified for. But I will tell you for certain sure...I worked them to death. OJT. Sometimes those are the best employees you ever get. They know they weren't qualified and so they work twice as hard.

Meah....that is my take.

It really doesn't come as a huge shock, this sort of thing happens a LOT in the nfl. With Reid, can't see him putting him in that position unless he expected big things from him down the road.

Thanks Eydugstr. I think you "got" what I was trying to say.
