A popular prop bet for the Harbaugh vs. Harbaugh championship matchup a couple of years ago was which brother would be cut to on the sideline more often. I’m not sure who the winner of that proposition was that night, but overall that title belongs to Jim, the more … uh … animated one. In fact, Jim Harbaugh is cut to 45.5 times per game on average, making him the NFL’s most cut-to head coach, one cut in front of Bill Belichick and one-and-a-half in front of the third place coach, Chip Kelly.
Coach Kelly’s 44 cuts-per-game rounds out the top-tier of coaches, as the Giants’ Tom Coughlin finishes 4th, a full five fewer cuts per game on average. On the quarterback side of things, even though Nick Foles’ offense has the second-lowest time of possession (and therefore second highest time-on-sideline), the QB is cut to an average of 10 times per game, good enough for 25th place. Peyton Manning, as he often does, claims the top spot here, with 31 cuts per game. Then again, maybe they just can’t find Foles on the sideline since — if the NFL films videos are any indication — he’s just chatting with Mark Sanchez all the time.
