Look out Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Andy Reid has some moves
Andy Reid belongs on ''Dancing with the Stars.''
Did you catch Reid ''dabbing'' after the Chiefs won their ninth straight game to clinch a playoff spot? It wasn't the first time ''Big Red'' celebrated a win with a victory dance. He did it earlier this month and also last season.
Several NFL stars have competed on the dance show and Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward and Donald Driver won it all. It's time for an overweight, not-so-nimble coach to show his moves.
OK, maybe not.
Reid is a big boy and far too awkward to strut his stuff for the world. That's better within the confines of a locker room.
Here are other overreactions from Week 16:
OVERREACTION: Bill Belichick turned into Marty Mornhinweg. He kicked off after winning the coin toss in overtime and the Patriots lost to the Jets.
REALISTIC REACTION: He still has those four rings. Kicking off to start OT isn't as egregious as the time Mornhinweg did it in Detroit because the OT rules changed years ago.
OVERREACTION: Kirk Cousins is the best QB in the NFC East. Cousins has been outstanding while leading the Redskins to the division title.
REALISTIC REACTION: If Tony Romo wasn't hurt … And don't forget Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls. Cousins is the flavor of the year.
OVERREACTION: The Panthers are a fraud. Carolina's perfect season ended with a loss to a team that had lost six of its previous seven games.
REALISTIC REACTION: They're 14-1. End of discussion.
OVERREACTION: Brock Osweiler is the man in Denver. Osweiler rallied the Broncos from a 14-0 deficit to beat the Bengals in overtime Monday night.
REALISTIC REACTION: Denver's defense is the reason the team is going to the playoffs. Osweiler has played well, but Peyton Manning is getting healthy.
OVERREACTION: The Seahawks are no longer the ''team-nobody-wants-to-play'' in the playoffs following another loss to the Rams.
REALISTIC REACTION: Marshawn Lynch is coming back, boss.
OVERREACTION: Ryan Mallett earned a starting job somewhere in 2016. Mallett was excellent in Baltimore's upset over Pittsburgh.
REALISTIC REACTION: He was unemployed a month ago. Mallett deserves a roster spot, but he has much more to prove to win a starting job in the NFL.
