The 2017 NFL owners’ meetings are underway, and one of the highlights is the annual coaches’ breakfast. It is a rare bit of coach media in between free agency and the draft. This year, AFC coaches are doing breakfast and media on Tuesday, with NFC coaches scheduled for Wednesday. Jennifer Chan will be there on Wednesday to chat with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan.
In the meantime, the coaches did their annual Monday photo. The league tweets out an official photo, with everybody looking at the camera. However, there is always a someone who tweets out a photo taken when the coaches aren’t all paying attention. Cardinals VP of media relations Mark Dalton posted this photo of all the coaches.
Each year, SB Nation takes a look at some of the oddities that come with the unofficial picture. This year, Kyle Shanahan gets the treatment.
If you look to the far left of the picture, Kyle Shanahan is sitting on the end, and new Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay is next to him. Shanahan is sitting there just sort of hanging out, but McVay appears to be staring intently at Shanahan’s watch. I have no idea why, but it’s randomly interesting. I suppose when they do post-game handshakes this year, Shanahan needs to make sure McVay doesn’t make a play for his watch.
