More postseason data added to the site

Posted by Doug on February 6, 2007

For a long while, the site only had postseason game stats from 1975 to the present. Now I've got it back to 1967 so you can see, e.g., Roger's Staubach's complete playoff history:

About a month ago I posted this look at the all-time great playoff performers, but the metric I used didn't properly adjust for the differing conditions of each era. Doing so will be fairly complicated, and I need to give it a bit more thought before I have something that I'm happy with, but for now I'll just post some of the best performances of the 1967--1977 period.

These lists are only very roughly in order of impressiveness. Extra credit is giving for winning, and also for winning in the later rounds (i.e. Super Bowls get more weight than Championship games, which get more weight than divisional games)
