Reid is a great coach and doing what he’s done at two different franchises is proof of it. I think Mahomes is what puts the team over the top though, his arm strength and improvisation/raw playmaking ability are pretty much unparalleled. He’d immediately raise the ceiling on almost any other team out there like he did succeeding Alex Smith (who was not a bad QB at all).
Patrick Mahomes is the most talented QB in the NFL ... no contest.
But I agree that Andy Reid is more impactful. Even before Mahomes, the Chiefs were in the playoffs every year. Reid is a hell of a coach. He did a great job with Alex Smith, and he's got a system where the Chiefs could win playoff games with Chad Henne, who is 18-36 as a starter.
You also have to credit the front office. They manage to find ways to keep a strong supporting cast around Mahomes without being in salary cap hell despite the massive contract they've given him.
