HOPEFULLY this is the first and LAST TIME anyone has to wear one of these during a Superb Bowl. Still wondering why Coach Arians was not used? Maybe he didn't want to part with it? Maybe his kids wanted it as a strange souvenir of the past? Who knows....
Here is what the NFL Hall of Fame sire says:
New to arrive in Canton and to be put on display in the Hall’s Pro Football Today Gallery are the game-worn hat and face shield of Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. He wore both of these items much of the 2020 season as a part of the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols.
In Week 9 (Nov. 8, 2020), the Chiefs defeated the Carolina Panthers 33-31. The victory was the 230th of Reid’s career. He surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer Curly Lambeau for most wins in NFL history, moving into fifth place.
