Many readers have asked about plans to chart games to gather stats not available from standard play-by-play. We've been experimenting in the preseason, we have a system that takes about four hours per game, and if we get enough volunteers we may split it by half so we would just be asking for two hours a week of your time. Everyone will get access to all the charting data from all 32 teams, plus access to game-by-game DVOA and other FO stuff. But we need more volunteers to make this work. If you are interested, please email Aaron using the contact form.
