Ouch. Dennis Allen can do everything right and still catch a loafer. Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce attempted to name every head coach in the NFL during an episode of his “New Heights” podcast, but the New Orleans Saints head coach was just one of a dozen or so coaches he wanted to list in the lineup. Could not recognize from An annual group photo at the NFL owners’ meetings in Phoenix.
He could identify former Saints coach Sean Payton at first glance, sure — “Broncos country, let’s ride,” he quipped in passing — but he was stunned when it came to Dennis Allen.
“And then,” said Kelce, pausing in thought, “no clue.”
It certainly doesn’t help that Allen is one of the only coaches in the photo wearing his event credential lanyard for league meetings. It’s probably hard to read in a grainy, zoomed-in photo, but still: ouch. Hopefully Allen can lead the Saints back to the playoffs this year and put himself on the radar of more people.
