Grantland says there is no such thing as the red zone, which is right and wrong at the same time. (Click to read more.)

Myth making, and such.

It looks like the last piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, as the Arizona Cardinals will hire Bruce Arians away from the Indianapolis Colts to be their new head coach. You know, the guy who was interim coach this year with a 9-3 record, and led the Pittsburgh offense to top 10 rankings in DVOA the three previous years. Wait... why did the Steelers get rid of him again?
No, I'm serious, I'm not sure why they did it.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will get the call as the first head coach of the David Caldwell era, and Jacksonville thanks Chip Kelly for his help.

This story is nothing short of astonishing. You may have heard earlier in the year about the terrible burden that Manti Te'o had to bear this season, playing even after both his grandmother Annette Santiago and his girlfriend Lennay Marie Kekua died in September. Well, Te'o's grandmother did die in September. But Deadspin has done extensive research and has found no evidence that there ever was any such person named Lennay Marie Kekua. There is no obituary, no report of an auto accident, no mention in the Stanford student newspaper where she was supposed to be a student.

This is making the rounds the last couple of days. Why won't Andy Dalton accept a Mai Tai?

Per Chris Mortensen, Chip Kelly is the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Jay Glazer and Ian Rapoport are both reporting the same thing, so it might actually be true. Until, you know, he backs out of the job in two days after Phil Knight unloads his dump truck in front of Kelly's house again or something.

Well, this is an interesting move. The Chicago Bears have chosen Marc Trestman, head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, as their new head coach. Trestman went 64-34 as head coach of the Alouettes, including back-to-back Grey Cups. He last coached in the NFL eight years ago. His background includes work with Steve Young and Rich Gannon, plus he trained Cutler before the 2006 draft.

New England's 41-28 win over Houston didn't look spectacular, but it was remarkably efficient, coming out as one of the ten best games since 1991 by offensive DVOA. (Click to read more.)
