2011 Play-By-Play Data Now Available

I remember working so hard to get access to NFL play-by-play data, at least in a format I could use for analysis. I always knew if I could only get the data, I could do some cool stuff with it. 

PBP data through week 4 is now available here. As in previous years, I plan on updating it throughout the season, around each quarter-mark. Previous seasons can be found here. The first download of the year is always the most troublesome, so future updates should be quicker.

    That is very cool, but wouldn't one also need a large set of data from previous seasons to train new models? How would somebody get their hands on that?

    Didn't mean to be snarky, sorry about that, but Brian's provided years of NFL PbP data in the past.
