Add up your correct answers. How did you do?
To coach for the 49ers, you have to get ALL questions correct.
Since the 49ers organization wants the crème de la crème, I decided to throw in a rather heady and mathematically intensive problem at the end to separate the wheat from the shaft. Football is not just complex game theory and Xs and Os, but it involves some physics as well as mathematics.
Don't feel bad if you didn't get all the questions correct. Remember, NFL coaches are highly trained and skilled professionals. They spend many hours going over such difficult scenarios and questions in their head.
It's true that some of the answers seem counterintuitive to logic and/or reason, but that is the “reason,” pun intended (ha ha), that they do what they do, and you do ... well, let's just say you're not going to quit your day job anytime soon!
Although Mike Singletary passed the 49ers coach IQ test with flying colors, I think what Jim Mora said many years ago, ironically, after facing the 49ers, is the only true way to describe the season the 49ers have had up to this point.
