Cool, looks nice!

One thing though... I did not use red. The color is brown, same color as a football. I thought it fit with the theme. :)

Hi Seth! Really dig your analysis. Compiling all of this data and visualizing it is hard work.

I've been playing around with Tableau at home and downloaded your viz to mess with it. Can I humbly recommend a couple of changes to improve your chart?

  • Add transparent boxplot overlays to emphasize the distribution
  • Sort your Past/Present/Future metric to put the former players at the back. On your viz we seem to have lost track of the current WRs. I think they are sorted under the former players.
  • Disperse the color range and sizes more so that it's easier to distinguish between the three categories.

Just some minor changes, but I think they greatly improve the readability of the chart. 2018 Recruiting Data.png

I got heated during the game when #72 jumped on Chase. I feel kind of dirty afterwards seeing him step on #72's ankle prior to that.

Do you think it would be possible to total the dropbacks and calculate a (pass-pro minus/per dropback) statistic?

It was McSorely that threw the second interception and HOLY JESUS Gary got tackled on the last play of the 6th drive, otherwise he would have sacked McSorely before Glasgow.

More importantly, I always appreciate the UFRs. I've learned so much about football from going through the play by plays and I look forward to them every week. Keep it up!

What do you mean "ceiling will again be limited." They went to the championship game last year.

That camera is the one on top of the backboard, so the shaking is actually the ball going in. I think that makes it cooler...

The train play turned into a rugby MAUL not a SCRUM. A small point in otherwise great analysis.

08/05/2016 - 4:50pm Moment of horror

I felt so strongly about your "moment of zen" that I abandoned my lurker status and created an account.
That video displayed a much larger player lifting and driving a smaller player headfirst into the turf. That play is incredibly risky towards the smaller player's spinal health and carries an increased risk of concussion. Let's not forget that the smaller player in question was his own teammate. In rugby, this play would have likely resulted in a yellow or red card for dangerous play, for good reason.

If we want to take player safety seriously, as fans we do carry some responsibility. I don't think that we should be celebrating dangerous play, especially not when it's carried out in practice against a teammate. Let's do the right thing here gentlemen and ladies.
