What are the odds, that two brothers would coach against each other in the Super Bowl? I'm thinking somewhere in the trillions:1. This is historic, basically similar odds to winning the lottery more than once or twice.

Well seeing as there's two sets of brothers in the NFL (granted Rob Ryan was a coord and is not currently employed), long but not impossible.

Yea if you narrow down to who is already in the NFL, the odds go way up. But in general, you have two brothers say they are still just little kids and you had to put odds that both would be coaching each other in a future super bowl. Dumb thought but the odds are that crazy.

2/32 = 1/16 = 6.25%


But yeah, it is pretty crazy that they both ended up with head-coaching jobs in the NFL and now they're both SB bound. But they do come from a big football family if I'm not mistaken, so the odds were significantly raised in their favor as opposed to just any other Average Joe.

I'd probably have to keep my TV turned off in the weeks leading up to the SB or risk having to buy a new one due to the media circus that would cover that story.
