Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has gotten the better of the San Francisco 49ers as of late. He has beaten them in two Super Bowls in the past four years.

However, he had nothing but kind words to say about Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Brock Purdy.

Andy Reid says Brock Purdy, Kyle Shanahan combination makes 49ers 'deadly'

If you are unable to watch the video, Reid said the following when he was asked about Purdy:

"Yeah, a lot of respect for Brock [Purdy]. He does a nice job...I don't really care where he got picked, it doesn't matter to me. He's just a good player. He sees the field, he's got good accuracy, great timing with his receivers. And he's calm. You feel like he's got everything under control there."

It is not in the clip, but apparently, Reid also made the comment that Purdy and Shanahan together make for a pretty deadly combination, according to The Athletic's David Lombardi.

This is not anything new. Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has made numerous positive comments about Purdy and the way he has played in his young career.

It is clear that while many still question Purdy and whether he can deliver a Super Bowl title back to San Francisco, those who have had to coach against him have nothing but praise to share about him.

Many have made the comparison between the careers of Shanahan and Reid. Both coaches were regarded as very good football coaches who could just not get over the hump.

Of course, Reid is now considered a great head coach because he has won two Super Bowls since he got fortunate and drafted one of the most gifted quarterbacks of all time.

Shanahan also got lucky to draft Purdy, especially with the last pick in the draft. He is not on the same talent level as KC's MVP quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, but he has proven that he has the talent and intangibles to win a Super Bowl. He was just one or two plays away from being one of only three quarterbacks to beat Mahomes in the playoffs.

Only time will tell whether the Purdy-Shanahan partnership will result in a Super Bowl ring for the Niners.

However, Reid's comments make it clear that Purdy commands the respect of many of the most decorated coaches in the NFL.
