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.

Matt Waldman and Chase Stuart contextualize the history of recent NFL receiver heights. How much does being tall actually mean for NFL success at the position?

Lots of FO analysis weaved into these ratings. After years working here in various capacities, I still discover new things hidden right under my nose, in plain sight. 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.

What does your city need to do to bring the Super Bowl to town? Oh, not much. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune got hold of the NFL's requests.

Will the NFL have to accede to some discovery in Missouri state court? Patrick Hruby has a primer.

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.

Brady-Manning XVI: the biggest game in the AFC this year. Denver has juggernaut potential as a complete team, but the Patriots have the crucial home-field advantage in Week 9.
