No surprise here, but doctors examining Junior Seau's brain found that he had suffered from the same type of chronic brain damage that had affected many other deceased football players.

This is a little bit of a sneak peak at what's coming in Friday's Texans-Patriots preview: my contribution to Steph Stradley's TexansChick blog on the scenario it would take for Houston to beat New England.

He's sure to show up as somebody's offensive coordinator next year, but it basically comes down to "new GM wants his own guys." Moral of the story: No matter how badly you want a head coaching job, maybe it is best not to take one from a GM who is clearly on questionable footing under brand new ownership.

The official verdict on RG III's knee: Griffin underwent surgery this morning to repair torn ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee. Team sources say that they expect him to be ready to play by Week 1 of the 2013 season. But will he be his usual self? It's hard to tell, with recovery time for ACL surgery getting shorter and shorter.

Major loss for the Seattle pass rush as the Seahawks try to win the Super Bowl. Chris Clemons tore his ACL on that awful D.C. turf yesterday and is done for the year, and probably part of next year as well. Unless he's secretly Adrian Peterson.

Mr. King looks at the events that transpired over Saturday and Sunday, adds some color to the hirings of Doug Marrone and Andy Reid, and goes over Chip Kelly's decision to stay.

Notes from my trip to Balmer to see Ray Lewis' final home game. A reminder of why option plays have limited NFL usefulness, as if we needed a reminder after watching RG3 double over. There is also a Saturday article over at Sports on Earth with a goofy Dragnet parody.

I'll buy this one because it comes from "team sources." Doug Marrone will leave Syracuse to become the new head coach of the Buffalo Bills. Marrone previously was offensive coordinator for Sean Payton and the Saints from 2006-2008; working for Payton suggests that Marrone may be open to a more analytical perspective that would match team president Russ Brandon's recent announcement that he plans to form an analytics department in the front office.

OK, so, apparently Chip Kelly is staying at Oregon now. Never mind.

I did a "Google+ hangout" video chat last night with two guys from Field Gulls, a Seahawks fan site on SB Nation. I was apparently in a jaunty mood and wouldn't shut up, so this thing goes on a long time, an hour and a half. We get into how FO started, where DVOA comes from and how it has developed over time, and we talk a lot about the Seahawks and this weekend's game as well. Lots of good FO stuff for non-Seahawks fans too, and you get to see what the back of my office looks like. Enjoy.

Lane Johnson and D.J. Fluker were selected high in the draft, but both have troubling flaws in pass protection according to Word of Muth.
