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." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
