This season, Buccaneers.com wants to help you see what the numbers are saying.
Welcome back to Data Crunch, our weekly foray into data visualization that will help tell the story of Tampa Bay Buccaneers football and the 2013 NFL season as a whole. Here, we will not only dive deep into the statistics generated each week by the Buccaneers but we'll present it to you in graphical form to better convey what the numbers are telling us. These interactive graphs allow the user to identify trends, gaining a better understanding of how wins and losses are generated and where the team is headed.
Our third data visualization exercise of 2013 rides a very timely concern for the Buccaneers: the need to replace
Of course, no team would expect to get the exact same production from a reserve as the Pro Bowler he's replacing; coming anywhere close would be a success for James. Here, you can take a look at exactly the type of production the Bucs have gotten from Martin through his impressive first 22 games as a professional. Martin's runs, rushing yards, receptions and receiving yards are broken down by game and by down on which they were achieved. Near the end, you'll find Martin's graphics overlaid by those of James, who has only just began to take on a bigger role in the Bucs' offense.
