Wouldn't rushes + pass attempts + sacks + penalties = the number of snaps?

Yes, but not the snaps played by a specific player. I think we can easily figure out the total number of snaps the QB was on the field for if he wasn't injured, but figuring out how many snaps the nickel corner played is harder.

I'm also working on building in a .cfg file to hold various configuration data....stuff which doesn't need to go into the Madden-type database format, and which won't regularly be changed through normal use of the app.

If there are numeric values which we're trying to get right, such as percentages and factors to fit into formulas, they would be able to be pulled from this file. Other examples would be the names of the divisions and conferences... by default will be NFC North, AFC, etc. In my custom league I have different names for my divisions so this is where I would change them.

So you're saying we can just leave a lot of things as variables when we're writing these formulas and than have the values pulled from the .cfg

Again sorry that I haven't been able to do much lately, school ends in a week and I should be able to help out more then.

Yeah, I'd say we would want to get something which makes sense and seems to basically fit, then if there were some numbers in a cfg file, we could adjust as we go...

I have a bunch of ideas for this once we agree on standardized settings my plan is to sim a season and plug the stats into a spread sheet. Then I'll see what correlates strongly with ovr and other areas. Is there a faster way than writing stuff down by hand and typing it in to move game stats into a spread sheet or is that the only option?

You can have the game export the game log. I believe that is either a .txt or .csv file.

Is the game log only just one game, because I would prefer the entire seasons worth of stats.

Tell me what you need and I can write an app to grab the stats. See my other post; I wrote an app which grabs a lot of this stuff and it's probably just a matter of tweaking it.

There is a team file which will have an entire season of stats for particular players on a team. Please post more detail about what stats we're looking for.
