With the 2012 NFL Football season kicking off in just 41 days, my thoughts have been turning towards football, and the great data site for the sport at pro-football-reference.com . I’ve spent some time trawling through there to get some rich data for future visualization projects, but wanted to start with a simple overview of the historical win/loss records for the active NFL teams. The results are pretty gratifying to see for a life-long Dallas Cowboys fan who adopted the Chicago Bears as his #2 team when he moved to the area some 11 years ago. I just wish those historical records could be transformed into a Super Bowl in the near future! ToDo: find an easy way to display this data within wordpress in vector SVG/PDF format in a way that is reasonably cross-browser compatible.
