Andy Reid claims there are things he still doesn't know about his Kansas City Chiefs.
That claim seems more farfetched by the day.
The former longtime Eagles coach has pulled all the right strings and orchestrated all the right moves in getting the Chiefs off to a 4-0 start. Their resounding 31-7 rout of the winless New York Giants on Sunday proved just how far Kansas City has come from a 2-14 finish a year ago.
Alex Smith was savvy and efficient at quarterback. Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe made the kind of big plays befitting his big new contract. Dexter McCluster returned a punt 89 yards for a touchdown. And a hard-hitting defense allowed just one long touchdown reception.
''There are a lot of things that I don't know, but I do know this: We're a tough bunch and we'll keep battling,'' said Reid, whose team joined the 1980 Detroit Lions as the only ones in modern NFL history to win their first four games after two or fewer wins the previous season.
