Player Penalty Logs

Posted by Mike on September 11, 2013

Using the play-by-play data we've added player penalty logs for each season from 1999 to the current season. Look for it in the header just below the ad, next to Splits:

penalties

You can click "Hide declined and offsetting" next to the header to hide declined or offsetting penalties, and you can click on the penalty description to be taken to the play in question in the game's box score.

The three most-penalized players since 1999 in our database? Flozell Adams, Charles Woodson, and Al Harris.

P-F-R Team Offensive & Defensive Schemes Added

Posted by Neil on September 11, 2013

In case you missed it over the offseason, we now have team offensive schemes & defensive alignments on team pages going back as far as 1957. We've even added team and opponent offense and defense as options on the team game finder tool, if for instance you want to find how teams performed against the 3-4 defense in 2012. Think we have a team's scheme wrong? Help us fix it!

Add Your Blog Posts to P-F-R Player Pages

Posted by Neil on September 9, 2013

PFR Player Name Linker / Add your Site to our Player Newsfeeds

With the season kicking off, it's time to showcase our newsfeeds on PFR player pages, showing the latest player news from KFFL, injury reports and links to relevant blog posts. If you have a blog or website with an RSS feed you can add your site to relevant player pages as well. Our Player Linker Tool will take your blog posts as you've written them and run them through a program and add links to PFR player pages where appropriate. So while you don't have the resource to create your own player pages for your site, you can treat us as your site's statistics partner, linking Eli Manning's name to our stats or any player all the way back to Y.A. Tittle and Otto Graham.

If the links then appear in your rss feed and you let us know to look for them, we'll pull them out of your feed and then link back to you from Eli's page, or Otto Graham's or whomever you link to.

If you help your users find our great content, we'll help our users find yours. And best of all it is all automated except for one click of an easy-to-install bookmarklet. Check the Player Newsfeeds page for details. This link share will also work for tables you share using the SHARE tooltip found above every stats table on the site.
