This is real life and this is their real job and that’s affecting their well-being.

“What a heck of a game,” said Andy Reid, head coach of the league’s only 4-0 team. “A tribute to the National Football League and what they’re trying to do with giving each city an opportunity to be successful.”

Parity can be a beautiful thing, especially in the smaller markets. Everyone in the NFL has an equal-opportunity shot at winning a Super Bowl, so you can imagine what it would mean to Reid, who has been a head coach for 19 years, and to Smith, who has won only two postseason games as a former No. 1 overall pick, to finally win one. And to finally win one together.

But Smith is not Tom Brady, nor is he Aaron Rodgers — the otherworldly franchise maker who was picked 23 spots after Smith in the 2005 NFL draft. Smith needs a special player by his side, someone who can carry the Chiefs when he can’t manage the load. The good news is it appears he has found that special teammate in rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who hasn’t slowed down since his record-breaking performance against the defending champion New England Patriots on opening night in Foxborough. As the late, great coach Hank Stram might’ve said, Hunt knows how to matriculate the ball down the field.

Now, your fantasy team may not win, and hey, guess what, you’ll live the next day. This is their well-being. They may not ever get another shot. They may never get another down, another play.”
