Pre-snap alignment & motion

At snap

Mesh point

At throw or handoff

At catch or interception

Or when RB reaches line of scrimmage

Our Football Data includes

Line battles

Objective information on who blocks who and when for every play to help understand where penetration, pressure, holes and movement are made on passing and running plays

Route patterns

Isolate the moment the ball was thrown and look at who was open. Is a QB conservative, rarely trying to fit passes into tight coverage, or is he prone to taking risks, trusting his arm and his target to keep the ball away from defenders and the chains moving forward?

Snap alignment

Captured both at the initial set and at the snap to account for motion, shifts & other pre-snap movements. Includes the full formation width with positional splits and the distances of corners, safety and linebackers from the line of scrimmage

QB throw accuracy

Our Football Data moves beyond buckets. We accurately record where on the receiver’s body the throw arrived. When combined with route pattern vectors, it provides unprecedented detail on QB accuracy.

Analysis - offence

Identify formation IDs, conduct play and drive analysis and unearth down and distance tendency profiles

Analysis - defence

Defensive back depth from the line of scrimmage, and ball relative width of safeties, linebackers

Pass placement

By recording exactly where on the receiver’s body each throw arrives we can evaluate the accuracy of every pass. In IQ filters make it easy to visualize overall catch success, completions by pass distance an catch radius

Receiver alignments and routes

Shows the alignment at snap of a single receiver for every play he was on the field. This can be filtered by: down and distance run or pass, explosive gains and field position. By selecting an alignment zone you can see a breakdown of the routes run by the receiver

Tables and box scores

Our easy-to-read tables make it simple to filter to the information you want to see and export data to be used elsewhere
