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.
Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
