You may remember Andreas Shepard's article with estimated DVOA ratings going back to 1950. Over on Chase Stuart's Football Perspective site, they've put together a couple of tables with all of the estimated ratings for all 1,638 teams. Note these are all estimated ratings, rather than a mix of estimated and actual ratings like we ran here at Football Outsiders; therefore the 1962 Packers are on top, not the 1991 Redskins.

During the offseason, we'll continue to be choosing star players for special Football Outsiders elite cards in Madden 25 Ultimate Team, based on strong performances in our various stats in 2013.

PK talks more fallout from Sam, the Wells Report, and, for some reason, T.J. Oshie.

A little Michael Sam, a little Incognito, a lot of Blake Bortles, and an effort to help you get through the next two weeks with your sanity in check.

Well, so much for all that vindication Richie Incognito was claiming he'd have on Twitter a few days ago. Deadspin has a roundup of the worst of the worst from the 144-page report. John Jerry and Mike Pouncey apparently aren't angels either.

It's defense overhaul time in New Orleans, as the Saints today cut veteran defensive end Will Smith, cornerback Jabari Greer, and safety Roman Harper. Actually... that's not so much of a defensive overhaul. Smith missed last season with a torn ACL. Greer was demoted to nickelback and Harper to third safety. While Greer used to be an FO binky, I think Smith is really the name here. He could be a really nice veteran addition if there's a team out there that needs a situational pass rusher and wants to get jiggy with it.

Time for one of our occasional calls looking for videotapes of old games so we can complete past seasons of play-by-play and do DVOA/DYAR ratings. (Click to read more.)

During the offseason, we'll continue to be choosing star players for special Football Outsiders elite cards in Madden 25 Ultimate Team, based on strong performances in our various stats in 2013. This week, we're starting with a whole offensive line representing the top five teams in Adjusted Line Yards, our stat which breaks down runs of different lengths to get an idea of which teams get the best run blocking.
Sam I Am, Hot Takes on Johnny Manziel, and a subtle Wade Phillips takedown of Jason Garrett highlight this month's best quotes.
