Where do you guys go for current info?

Postby Shark1225 » Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:23 pm

Say, if you want to know how a certain rookie is doing in camp(in most years) where do you turn? NFL.com, ESPN.com, Foxsports.com are the basics I want some of the inside sites the pros use? ;-)

I use profootballtalk.com for somethings...there morning one-liners are the best thing they provide, reading the articles is dreadful other than the information though.

Since I've been around the cafe a while, I guess this might be shameless self promotion, but in all honesty, the cafe is one of the best places I have found for keeping up with prospects and young players or guys who might break out. I have found in all the time I have been a sports fan (be it hockey, baseball, or football) that the best way to find out about how the young guys on a team are doing is to talk to the avid fans of that team. I know I've helped guys do this in the past with the Eagles and helped people have some success. So really, one of the best things you can do is to get ingrained in the community here, find out who people like, and then start asking them questions. Really. It works. Failing that, I tend to just stay on top of nfl.com and espn. I'm not a heavy personal scout. I also keep eyes on how they play against my team in real life. That's generally a good indicator as well.

Shameless plug? Yes. Absolutely true, across the board? Yes. ;-D

As much as I tought Twitter was ridiculous back when it first arrived, I have to admit that followng some of the teams' beat writers on twitter gives you quick access to info on players that might only arrive on an internet board or a news site hours or days later.

For instance, Mary Kay Cabot for the Browns:

I use twitter, the cafe, rotoworld routinely, and if all else fails I will resort to a "<insert player name> news" google search.
