Everyday during the month of October, I'll be marking the re-launch of AFA by highlighting a feature here at the site. To help re-build the AFA community, please spread the word. Tell your friends and follow AFA on Twitter, Facebook, or via RSS.
This is another one of my personal favorites. If you go to the QB Viz and click on the Career Total WPA tab and Nth Best EPA tab, you'll see a unique way of comparing QB careers. It takes a little more explaining than I can do in a quick Feature of the Day post, but here is the full explanation. In short, the Career Total WPA graph plots the cumulative WPA produced by each selected QB starting from his first season. And the Nth Best EPA graph plots each selected QB's cumulative EPA production, sorted from his best season to his worst. The QBs with the most 'area under the curve' have enjoyed the more productive careers.
If these plots look familiar to baseball sabermetric guys, it's because they are direct imitations of Fangraphs' very cool WAR graphs.
