- Amid the postgame celebrations following the Chiefs’ 25-22 victory over the 49ers, Reid said Kelce simply told him, “I’m sorry.”
Super Bowl-winning coach Andy Reid revealed that star tight end Travis Kelce apologized for his midgame rant that nearly saw him take down the 65-year-old Chiefs coach.
Amid the postgame celebrations following the Chiefs’ 25-22 victory over the 49ers, Reid said Kelce simply told him, “I’m sorry.”
‘He came up and gave me a hug… He just wants to be on the field and wants to play. There’s no one I get better than him. He is a competitive child and loves to play. He makes me feel young,” Reid told ESPN.
The couple’s interaction sparked a meme storm on social media as viewers speculated about what was said. At one point it looked as if Kelce almost took down Reid.
He is one of the best male leaders I have ever seen. And he has helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion. “I owe my whole career to that guy and being able to control how emotional I get and just love him,” Kelce said.
Reid spoke with CBS alongside his wife Tammy after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers.
Kelce yelled in his coach’s face after Reid pulled him off a play in the first half.
For his part, Reid also downplayed the altercation.
“He caught me off balance. I wasn’t looking. He actually came up (and said), ‘Just put me in and I’ll score.’ I’ll score.’ So, that’s really what it was. I love that. It’s not the first time. I appreciate that.’
It was one of the first cases where Kelce went viral and it didn’t involve his girlfriend.
One night after Swift won the fourth Grammy of her career for album of the year last week, Kelce said he told her “I’d have to hold up my end of the deal and bring home some hardware too.”
Swift flew halfway around the world to see her boyfriend, who also said during opening night of Super Bowl week on Monday, “I want this more than I’ve ever wanted a Super Bowl in my life.”
“I’m going to move forward and enjoy this and everything that just happened,” he said. ‘This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I have already been able to take advantage of it three times. It keeps getting sweeter and sweeter.
‘You know the goal has always been to get three. “But we couldn’t get here without getting those two and without having that goal on our back all year.”
This was the second bench incident involving Kelce and Reid this season.
During a game against the Raiders on Christmas Day, an angry Kelce stabbed Kelce’s helmet into the sideline, and when a staff member tried to give it back to the tight end so he could take the field, Reid grabbed the helmet and refused to give it to him. back.
