Which NFL Teams Really Have the Toughest And Easiest Schedules in 2014? - Neil Paine
In cases like this, a better tactic is to make regressive predictions. We can use a regression formula to predict each team’s 2014 Simple Rating from its ratings over the previous two seasons, while building in plenty of regression to the mean to reflect our limited knowledge.

Manti Te’o: "One Year Makes a Whole Lot of Difference" - Ricky Henne

Ryan Mathews: Teaming with Donald Brown will be fun - Kevin Patra
"I (want to) make it more than 16 games," Mathews said, per U-T San Diego. "That was a big goal last year: 'Alright, let's get him through 16 games.' We did that. Now the goal is to keep me healthy, keep running after 16 games. The coaches did a good job of getting another guy like Donald to help me out. It's going to be fun."

It confirms his ability to continue to perform surgery and practice medicine. It puts an end to the speculation about a possible interruption to his orthopedic/sports medicine practice."
