Interesting new tool

Post by dead_poet » Thu Aug 30, 2012 12:40 pm

Pro-Football-Reference is proud to introduce the PI Play Finder, which allows you to query play-by-play data from every NFL game since 2000. Here are a few of the things you can use this tool for:

Event Searches. Example: Find all playoff plays (2000-11) on 3rd/4th down and 11+ yds to go that ended in 1st downs
Team Play Searches. Example: Find every 3rd-and-short run by the Eagles in 2004
Aggregate Stat Searches. Example: Eli Manning had the most yards of any QB in the 4th quarter last season
Team Aggregate Searches. Example: Tennessee had a league-high 194 pass attempts on 3rd down last year
...You get the idea. With this feature, you can find events and calculate splits where the only limit is your imagination.

That's pretty cool. Thanks for the link. I'm probably going to waste a lot of time there now. I'm sure my work won't mind.....
