The NFL has announced its all-time Super Bowl 50 Golden Team, "celebrating the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl." As you would expect, the roster is dominated by Steelers -- seven Pittsburgh players made the list, followed by five Cowboys, four 49ers, three Raiders, and three Packers. (Though that tally gets complicated by Deion Sanders and Charles Haley, each of whom played in a Super Bowl with both Dallas and San Francisco. I just counted one as a 49er, one as a Cowboy.) Only one Patriot makes the list: kicker Adam Vinatieri.

Benjamin Morris at 538.com points out that in all the madness of Andy Reid's clock mutilation and Aaron Rodgers' Hails of Mary, few noticed that both the Chiefs and Packers kicked extra points when basic math and league-wide averages said they should have gone for two. This is actually a few days old, but hey, Morris used my Tweet, so it's only fair to mention his piece here.

Usually, when an NFL team names a new head coach, they want all the attention they can get. Tennessee is apparently not so proud of their new hire, because they announced that Mike Mularkey was their new head coach during the Chiefs-Patriots playoff game, when nobody was watching.
Hey, if you were hiring a guy with an 18-39 head coaching record, you'd be sneaky about it too.

Two teams hired new head coaches on Thursday.
The Philadelphia Eagles hired Kansas City offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. The move cannot be formally announced until the Chiefs are eliminated from the postseason, but the Eagles did not deny the report: "We have concluded our search for a head coach," a team spokesman said. "No further interviews are scheduled."
