NFL Coaches Are Getting Away With Crimes Against Middle-School Math

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.

Titans Name Mike Mularkey Head Coach

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.

San Francisco Hires Chip Kelly as Head Coach

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.
