Justin Reid recently appeared on the Jim Rome show and discussed a variety of issues.
Justin Reid understands that he hasn’t been around long enough to be a prominent voice in the events surrounding Eric Bieniemy.
The dearth of head coaching opportunities that have come his way in the last four or five years.
Nevertheless, the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs safety has seen enough of Bieniemy’s leadership to speak out against it, and he told Jim Rome all about it in a recent interview.

Reid was a recent guest on the Jim Rome Show
Reid was on the Jim Rome Show recently and discussed a variety of topics, including winning Super Bowl LVII, and joining the Chiefs last year. Then Rome inquired about Bieniemy.
Bieniemy has accepted a new position with the Washington Commanders as offensive coordinator under head coach Ron Rivera, after interviewing for that position himself a few years ago.
It was one of roughly 20 head coaching opportunities that went unfilled for Bieniemy. He is significantly more competent on paper than many of those who have gotten the gigs over the years.
Moreover, with Bieniemy making what appears to be a lateral move away from Kansas City. Many questions have been raised in NFL circles regarding the hiring process, specifically its impartiality.

Here’s what Reid had to say about the whole situation
“I’ve only been here a year, so it’s tough for me to be able to explain the full scope of it, but my limited experience with EB… I mean, I adore him. He is an ardent leader.
“One of the things that I respect the greatest about him. Shady was talking about it like a downfall. I thought it was like one of the greatest things that a leader can do is that he holds every player, no matter who you are, to the same standard.
It makes no difference what you did last week. We play to a standard every time. He only wants the best for you. He’ll bring out the best in you, high and tight with the ball, and execution on the details. He doesn’t care who you are; he simply wants us to succeed.
“I think that a little bit of what’s happened is he’s kind of been tucked away under coach Andy Reid, a Hall of Fame coach yourself, and that’s a big shadow to be under. ‘Hey dude, can he do it himself?’ I believe there is some belief.
Therefore, I believe it was vital for him to make this trip to Washington. I’m delighted for him. I know Washington is going to be excited about it. They’re going to be able to have a lot more productive with him there.”
