Chuck Noll Passes Away

The legendary Steelers head coach passed away Friday at 82. Noll, who turned around a Pittsburgh franchise that had been pathetic for virtually its entire history until his hiring in 1969, is the only head coach to win four Super Bowls. He had a career record of 193-148-1 in the regular season. RIP, and condolences to his family and friends.

Mandatory Monday: Front Seven Ratings

The defensive DVOA ratings against running backs and tight ends makes a fascinating indicator of the "shape" of a front seven's performance: maybe they are forcing tight ends and backs to block all the time, or covering them well, or abandoning too much in the name of pass rush (the Browns), leaving the screen and hot read game wide open.

Colin Kaepernick Signs Six-Year, $110 Million Extension

Russell Wilson licks his lips...

Reportedly there's $61 million in guaranteed money. That's kind of unbelievable, so some of it is probably guaranteed only for injury. Full terms not out yet.
