I have heard that as well. IIRC, it was while he was official scorer for the Broncos many years ago.
According to this, Joe Gibbs originally coined the term "red zone."
From his CU bio:
"He has worked 321 Bronco games through the 2010 season, and among the many innovative numbers he is credited with first charting was “scoring percentage inside-the-20,” which is now commonly known as the red zone."
Looks like Plati was the one to first start tracking the statistic. I belive ther term "red zone" originates from the military's use of red zone as being within firing range.
This is from his bio on cubufs.com

It was George Allen while working an NFL game with Vin Scully. I went something like this, "Hey Vinny, that linebacker is red-dogging in the red zone!"
As Moses said, I will wade in the Red Sea, but I will not drink from it.
In Phyllis George's red zone....
