NFL players often are hyper-focused on a single opponent each week, and that seemed to be clear when Travis Kelce tried to name every head coach in the league.
The league held its annual meeting this week, where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick gained attention with news on Lamar Jackson and the state of New England, respectively.
Also, nearly all of the coaches were in attendance for a group photo. Philadelphia Eagles’ Nick Sirianni, Tennessee Titans’ Mike Vrabel and Carolina Panthers’ Frank Reich were not at the meetings for undisclosed reasons.
Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce played a game Wednesday on their “New Heights” podcast. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end had to name every head coach on the group photo, and the results were hilarious.
Travis admitted he was bad with names but could name the team the individual coached. After three correct guesses, he immediately stumbled and said, “Who the (expletive) is that guy?” Despite playing him twice last season, Kelce didn’t seem to recognize Las Vegas Raiders coach Josh McDaniels.
Jason had to correct his brother on former Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, who is the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, and former Philadelphia defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, who is the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Travis claimed to have “never seen this (expletive) guy in my life,” so he apparently wasn’t paying close attention to the coaches in Super Bowl LVII.
The Pro Bowl tight end also didn’t recognize Bengals head coach Zac Taylor, despite Cincinnati and Kansas City being rivals, with the 33-year-old asking, “Who the (expletive) is that one?” Jason, again, had to correct his younger brother.
The Kelce brothers hilariously called Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy “Matt Foley,” a “Saturday Night Live” character played by Chris Farley. One can only hope Travis knew who the person was.
When they reached Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, Travis said, “There’s no way that guy coaches in the NFL, man.” The divisional-round game in the 2020 season must have been a blur for the All-Pro.
Thankfully, Travis recognized his own head coach, Andy Reid, and Belichick, when he said, “Obviously, you know the next (expletive).”
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay was referred to as “Gordon Bombay,” and Jason admitted he might have fared much better.
Fans now have something to look forward to when the Chiefs and the Raiders match up in 2023.
