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."

Well, let's hope that he can improve his relationship with players, because the 49ers don't need any more good players trying to leave. Still, I think this makes sense as a hire. I think Kelly made some personnel mistakes this year, but I still think he's a good game coach. And if they can keep Colin Kaepernick around, that seems like the perfect quarterback for Kelly's offensive scheme.

Hey folks! Sorry I have not been posting my weekly previews/Hangovers lately. The playoffs bring travel days and odd schedules that throw me off my routine. Anyway, here's my annual festival of chalk for the divisional round.

We've got players and coaches who are cranky about losses, commentators who are cranky about players, and middle-aged men cranky at these damn millenials, and yes, Bill Belichick cranky about tablets.
