Behold: The 2018 NFL head coaches class photo

The NFL's annual spring meetings are underway in Orlando, which means it's time for all the 32 head coaches to gather for a class photo.

Well, almost all of them.

Twenty-nine of the 32 coaches made the photo this year, with Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll and John Harbaugh abstaining on personal and/or religious grounds. (Probably.) All three of the missing coaches have won Super Bowls with their current teams. Coincidence? Me thinks no... okay, fine, it's a coincidence.

A few other observations:

Kyle Shanahan, seated fourth from the left, has apparently taken on the mantle as the NFL's Kliff Kingsbury, while Andy Reid, second from the left, remains the most under-dressed head coach.

Doug Pederson, one spot to the right of Reid, and Mike Vrabel, second from the right on the second row, look like they could still play.

Sean McDermott and Dan Quinn, seated around Todd Bowles in the middle of the first row, look more like brothers than actual brothers Jon and Jay Gruden, who are sandwiching Mike Tomlin on the left side of the second row. In fact, Tomlin looks like he had to step in and separate the slap-fighting Gruden brothers, and Jon is pissed because Jay got in the last blow.

While we're at it, here's the class photo of the NFL general managers as well.
