Yeah, but you could do it using this model, but it would probably be a bit more of a pain.
I think I'm going to be making some tweaks to the formula, though.
What's your guys opinion on this one:
If a runner gains yards OVER the necessary yardage, I give them bonus points (.2 on 1st/2nd down and .5 on 3rd/4th down) for every extra yard gained. But for every yard UNDER what's needed, they only receive the fail negative point.
I think, for example, I should change it to this:
1st and 10, Gain of 3, Fail (-1 pt), 1 yard under (-.2) Total Loss: 1.2 points
3rd and 3, Loss of 5, Fail (-1 pt), 8 yards under necessary yardage (-4.0) Total Loss: -5 points
Currently it would work like this:
1st and 10, Gain of 3, Fail (-1 pt) Total Loss: 1 points
3rd and 3, Loss of 5, Fail (-1 pt), 2 yard loss or more (-2) Total Loss: -3 points
Opinions? It's not that difficult a change to make, just recalculating points. I just don't know how beneficial it would be.
