Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith revealed the worst kept secret in the NFL recently when he explained that his coach Andy Reid has a huge love of cheeseburgers.

It's hardly the biggest surprise, but the fact that he's always offering his own players them is quite unique in the modern day sporting world.

"He's a big cheeseburger guy. He's always treating us to cheeseburgers. You've just got to be one the team," Smith told NFL Network.

21st century sports teams tend to want their players on the best diets in the world, quite the polar opposite of Reid's cheeseburger philosophy.

Now it's understood that the cheeseburger is a symbol of winning. Meaning if you win for Reid it's cheeseburgers for everyone, just like Philadelphia Eagles players did in the video on this link.

But who gets them isn't singled out on one particular individual. Not at all. Reid's philosophy is that if you're on the team you entitled to a cheeseburger.

The Chiefs will be looking to consume as many cheeseburgers as they did during the 2013 NFL season when they went 11-5 to make the post-season.
