Not quite ready to make one of these for #2. But articles like these make me want to scream and/or hysterically sob the football universe into submission. Or something like that.

With that in mind, yours truly spent some time perusing Matty Ice's regular-season stats (2008-2010). Here's an interesting tidbit/talking point:

35.7 attempts/game in 2010 (9th in the league)

32.2 attempts/game in 2009 (17th in the league)

27.1 attempts/game in 2008 (25th in the league)

9 interceptions/571 attempts or 1.6 percent interception percentage in 2010

14 interceptions/451 attempts or 3.1 percent interception percentage in 2009

11 interceptions/434 attempts or 2.5 percent interception percentage in 2008

Bottom line: Matty might have struggled with the increase in attempts/game during his 2009 campaign. Got over that handily in 2010 though. Granted, none of this is defense-adjusted. Still though ... I'm convinced.
