IRVING Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is obviously very familiar with the Dallas Cowboys. Reid has more victories coaching against the Cowboys than any other head coach in the history of the game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Reid was 17-12 against the Cowboys during his 14 seasons as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
So what's his secret to having so much success against the Cowboys?
"Probably because I survived in the NFC East so long," Reid said before breaking out into laughter during a Wednesday conference call with reporters at Valley Ranch. "It was probably just by chance, just having been in that division so long."
Reid, who said he was humbled by having the record for wins against the Cowboys, had a lot of praise for the Dallas organization.
"They got a great owner in Jerry Jones," Reid said. "Jason Garrett, I have a ton of respect for and not just because he's a red head. I've got a ton of respect for him as a football coach and as a person. They do it the right way."
Here are a few other highlights from Reid's conference call.
On the Cowboys coaching staff: "Before Monte got into the college game, there weren't a lot of people in this league that were better than Monte Kiffin. I think the players down there probably feel that. They know that. And Rod Marinelli, I would tell you the same thing. You're talking about a defensive coordinator that's phenomenal. That coaching staff, Billy Callahan, too. I'm very familiar with him. He's a tremendous coach. Listen, they've got good people right there, and Monte Kiffin is top notch."
On Tony Romo: "People in the profession have a ton of respect for him and how he plays the game. He's playing good football. He was playing good football in the preseason. He's playing good football now."
On Dez Bryant: "He's a real good player. Listen, these are young men, so they go through their growing phase and people have to understand the wide receiver position in the National Football League takes a little time to get used to playing in, and they develop over time there. He's there and he's at that point now and he's just taken off. He's a talented kid and loves to play the game."
On Miles Austin: "I've never looked at him as a No. 2. If you say you're going to cover him less than another guy, he's going to gash you. I don't know what a No. 1 or a No. 2 is, but I know you better honor his abilities and make sure you know where he is."

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, even though Jamaal Charles (quad) was held out of today’s practice, head coach Andy Reid believes he’ll be OK to play this week against the Cowboys.
Reid said Charles will be held out of practice this afternoon: "We're just taking it slow. I think he'll be OK for the game.''

The topic of Tony Romo is always a touchy subject with local fans, and one met with exceeding hostility. There are those who believe Romo will never win the “big one”, or even get to the big one for that matter. To them, it doesn’t matter how many times he puts the team on his back and turns in a brilliant performance. It doesn’t even matter...
Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles did not practice yesterday, but he is expected to play this week when the Chiefs host the Dallas Cowboys. Andy Reid said holding Charles out of practice was just precautionary. Charles did do individual trills, but no team activities to keep from taking any shots to the leg. Charles also acknowledged that he will play this weekend...
The Cowboys offense is looking solid but the Chiefs aren't the same push over they were last season.
After going 13-3 week 1, I've started out 1-0 with the Patriot sneaking past the Jets.

New York Giants defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins says Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones needs to “clean his glasses” for saying he faked an injury during Sunday’s season opener. “Maybe he should get his son-in-law to clean his glasses a little better,” Jenkins said of Jones, via ESPN.com, referring to a video clip of Jones having his glasses wiped by his son-in-law. “I...

So, let's talk about the Chiefs briefly. I readily admit that I would like to spend 2,000 words on the upcoming opponents like I used to, but the way we are doing the blog these days has put far more emphasis on the game behind than the game ahead and most seem to enjoy the Tuesday-Thursday breakdowns...
The Cowboys accused players of faking injuries to slow down their no huddle, but it turns out one of the players was not faking it at all. Dan Connor went down and it turns out he was diagnosed with a season ending neck injury.
Tony Romo and Jerry Jones thought it was pretty funny after the game with the comments below. I’m sure they wish they could take back now. See...
