Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has long been one of the more beloved figures in the league. Not just for his incredible success as head coach of two franchises, but a general gregariousness overall. Also his willingness to share his love of food. Oh, so much food.

Which is why when the Kansas City Chiefs decided to get Big Red a gift following KC’s 24-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, it could not have been more appropriate.

Everyone in the NFL gets free Nike shoes, but does everyone get a perfect medium-rare cheeseburger??

Reid’s love of lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes goes back generations, from his 14-year tenure in Philly where he passed on the signature dish of cheesesteaks for cheeseburgers often.

Reid has been serving up cheeseburgers with the night-before team meal for over two decades, and is a true connoisseur of any combination of ground beef, bread, and a slice of dairy.

During this holiday season, may this be a reminder that gift giving can be so simple: Just get your loved ones something they’ll enjoy. Well done, KC Chiefs. It’s the thoughtfulness that counts.
