I remember seeing this (maybe in a RB thread in the preseason) but can't seem to find it using the search. Anyone remember the title?

I am guessing they have that data or someone else does for the 1st 2 weeks of 2013. I did a cursory search but did not find any of that open source.

I did come across a few other nice links though. So will add those too.

Frank Gore has faced the most 8 in the box so far this season according to this http://www.ninersnation.com/2013/5/8/4312556/frank-gore-49ers-rushing-game-eight-men-in-the-box and this


Article pertaining to its relevance (somewhat, what I would like to see is yards/carry data for each play that 8 or more defenders are deployed to stop the run) http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/content/nfl-myth-busting-elite-running-backs-battle-eight-in-the-box-defenses/23392/
