This would be fun.  I may not be able to hack yet,  but I know football.

All fired up about the football playoffs? Think you can out-coach Belichick's hoodie?

We may have the event for you -- a proposed football hackathon.

AdvancedNLFStats has released every play in the NFL since 2002. What can that tell us about Belichick's 3rd down mentality? Help find out at a hackathon focused on NFL data: We'll work on visualizations, interactives, and any other creative ideas you come up with.

Very important note -- this is still proposed. If we get a good response, the event will be scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19 (don't worry -- no playoffs that day), all day, at the Boston Globe.

Examples for inspiration might be the Pat's play predictor:

Or the Bill Belichick Press Conference Simulator:
