Almost like this is Bill Belichick's JoBu to whom he leaves small offerings of rum every now and then.
This position, I think, is the first ever created for the NFL.
Chip Kelly has 22
total assistants/coaches on his staff, the biggest, currently in the NFL.

"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
