New Super Bowl Stat: Jobless Rate from Philly.com
RiseSmart, an outplacement technology company in California, posits that the results of the Super Bowl game can readily be predicted by looking at the jobless rates of the two competing cities. The one with the lowest rate usually wins the title...
...It doesn't look as if fired head coach Andy Reid needed much outplacement help. The Kansas City Chiefs snatched him up. If Sathe's theory is correct, Reid should be super successful there. In December, the Kansas City metro area had an unemployment rate of 6.4 percent.
Looking for an early Super Bowl favorite for next season? Wait until April and find out who will play the Philadelphia Eagles in their home opener in 2013.
Baltimore's win over San Francisco made them the fourth straight team to win the Super Bowl after playing Philly in its Lincoln Financial Field season opener.

AFC West Franchise Tag Options from ESPN
Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs will probably end up giving somebody the tag. Their top free agents are receiver, Dwayne Bowe, left tackle Branden Albert and punter Dustin Colquitt. Albert and Colquitt are major priorities. Bowe could be as well. New Kansas City coach Andy Reid has money to spend and I doubt he'd want a weapon like Bowe, who was franchised last year, to leave town. If the former brass was kept, I bet Bowe would leave. He is, by far, the Chiefs' most reliable receiver and I can see Reid wanting him back. If Bowe is franchised, it would be at more than $11 million.

10 NFL Story Lines To Monitor This Offseason from USA Today
5. Who is the No. 1 draft pick?
This is what happens when there isn't a top-flight quarterback available. Teams can suddenly go in a bunch of different directions. It doesn't happen often. Twelve of the last 15 No. 1 picks have been quarterbacks. Long (2008) was the last non-quarterback taken in the top spot. Williams (2006) was the last defensive player to come off the board first.
It's not easy to project non-quarterbacks, so look for a lengthy debate on whether offensive tackle Luke Joeckel (Texas A&M) defensive end Bjoern Werner (Florida State), nose tackle Star Lotulelei (Utah) or other candidates deserve to be first pick of Andy Reid's tenure with the Kansas City Chiefs. That's of course, if Reid keeps the pick.
Galaxy Of Stars Turn Out For Super Bowl Weekend from The Las Vegas Review-Journal
Football: Moorestown's Pederson Shows Resilience from PhillyBurbs.com
As far as adjusting to a move from New Jersey to Alabama, well, that's a whole different story.
You see, Pederson's father, Doug, worked on the Philadelphia Eagles' coaching staff the past four seasons. When Andy Reid became the Kansas City Chiefs' head coach, he appointed Doug Pederson as the Chiefs' new offensive coordinator.
Because of the job change, the Pederson family will be moving to Kansas City while Drew heads off to college.
"I'm excited for my dad because he's wanted to be an offensive coordinator since he started coaching in the NFL," Drew said. "I'm not quite sure how the move is going to work out, but I think we're going to be living in Kansas. We have a weekend planned in the spring to go out there and get everything squared away."
