Thanks for helping us set a single-day record

We’re happy to announce that, on the first day after the completion of the 2009 regular season, we’ve set an all-time, single-day PFT traffic record, with more than 2.125 million page views.

The new high-water mark surpasses our prior record of 1.947 million from October 20.

We’ve got a feeling that the new mark won’t last for long, and we appreciate the fact that you keep spending some of your time every day checking out the latest developments in the NFL.

With the commencement of our NBC partnership, 2009 was a great year.  We’ve got a feeling 2010 will be even better. 

So thanks again for giving us the ability to work hard at something that, like coaching, really isn’t working.

    Unlike a lot of people who post here, I actually like this site, anf think you guys do a great job. Congrats on the success.

    Urban Meyer would love to have your job. It requires much less hard work than his current job, and requires a lot less heart as well.
    Yeah, I went there.

    I like this site too. Better than the stuff they serve at ESPN. Keep up the great work.

    You’re welcome.

    Of course, this represents 2125 unique visitors and 1000 auto-refreshes each. Nothing like an auto-refresh to pump up the stats.

    Grats.
    Can add my 15 page views to that, just signed on at 8:55 pm PST.

    Yes, many thanks to Michael David Smith, Gregg Rosenthal, and Josh Alper for providing content worth reading.

    The NFL football here is as good as it gets. When they resort to politics it’s about as bad as it gets.

    Love the work you and your staff to Florio. Keep up the good work, and I’ll keep mashin’ F5!!

    Congrats!! You would get more hits if all links worked on the site. Also, why not have page numbers/dates so we can reference back? You could also try and post some of the comments that “knock” on you/your site. You can dish it out but you can’t take it.

    Keep up the good work

  12. Zoology says: Jan 5, 2010 1:08 AM

    might have been a few of us redskins fans helping you out there

  13. Brohamma says: Jan 5, 2010 1:31 AM

    Congrats on the new single-day record.
    Keep up the good work that you guys usually produce and stop writing articles so late in the evening Florio.
    You tend to get a bit “punchy” and slip.
    Also, Happy New Year to all! It’s been four days without anyone landing on the Turd Watch… but I’m betting it won’t make it past six.

  14. DGB says: Jan 5, 2010 1:33 AM

    Congrats, Florio and crew. To the detriment of my career and the shagrin of my employer, I’ll continue to do my small part to help keep those view totals climbing.

  15. El Colon says: Jan 5, 2010 1:34 AM

    Hey Mike, can there be a contest where a reader gets to watch a Sunday of football with you? I’d love it if you came to my house and watched the games with my friends and me.

  16. stnmmc says: Jan 5, 2010 2:07 AM

    My friend turned me onto this site a little over a year ago. I don’t think Ive missed a day since. Thx guys.

  17. JaggedMark says: Jan 5, 2010 2:15 AM

    Did you miss Brad Childress on Mad Dog radio Monday?
    Chris Russo ask him what the plan is this week. Childress said everyone is off until Sunday. He said they have the whole week to do what they want, just stay out of trouble. He added, I don’t even care if they do the Tony Romo thing and take a vacation.
    Russo, questioned that, and Brad said, “no, I really don’t care. Just be ready Sunday.”

    This site is great. Good thing NBC sprung for more hamsters. Or gerbils.

  19. Dave The Dude says: Jan 5, 2010 3:19 AM

    Congrats, Florio. I’ve enjoyed reading the site, even though you’re a Stealer fan.

  20. tommyjcaps says: Jan 5, 2010 5:45 AM

    Can you stop the site from auto-refreshing?
    Is there anyone out there that actually likes this feature???

  21. mlegue810 says: Jan 5, 2010 5:49 AM

    I hit F5 at least 400,000 times yesterday hoping to see that the Lions were being shipped out to Los Angeles.
    Congrats on the achievement!

  22. gazretired says: Jan 5, 2010 6:44 AM

    I appreciate your efforts, although your work may be unappreciated by some. Thanks, and keep it up.

  23. Bob S. says: Jan 5, 2010 9:50 AM

    The new high-water mark surpasses our prior record of 1947 … October 20.

    wow!
    broke a 62 year old record of yours!

  24. footballrulz says: Jan 5, 2010 9:55 AM

    Thanks for helping the day go by faster. Most people should keep in mind that this is the Rumor Mill and not based on facts all the time. Can’t understand all the Florio bashing–wish I had thought of this first actually.
    Also can’t understand the complaints about auto refresh. Fortunately I don’t seem to have that problem. Only refreshes when I hit refresh. Could it be some sort of preset on individual systems?

  25. Profootballtalk Rocks says: Jan 5, 2010 9:55 AM

    Congrats 2 your diligence work efforts which have paid off. Continue the good work

    Don’t pat yourself on the back too much – most of the traffic was Vox coming back out of hiding.

    “Hey Mike, can there be a contest where a reader gets to watch a Sunday of football with you? I’d love it if you came to my house and watched the games with my friends and me.”
    Beware of invitations from anyone that uses the word “colon” in his name, Florio.

  28. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 5, 2010 10:41 AM

    Hey look, Kevin from Philly is back and it’s only Tuesday. Where’s EskinSux? Probably “working out of town” for a month, again. Or maybe he’s commiserating with Rickah1999, RevSkip and east96st, three more shmoes that constantly accuse me of “hiding”, the last two of whom can only be seen on milk cartons and reruns of “To Catch a Predator” for the past month or so.

  29. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 5, 2010 12:11 PM

    “Russo, questioned that, and Brad said, “no, I really don’t care. Just be ready Sunday.””
    Maybe they’ll do the Viking thing and import some hookers from Wisconsin and stick ‘em on a BOAT, BITCH, YEAH ON A BOAT BITCH! They drinkin Santana champ cause it’s so crisp! They got they swim trunks, and they flippy-floppies, they flippin burgers you at Kinko’s straight flippin copies!

    “Thanks for helping the day go by faster. Most people should keep in mind that this is the Rumor Mill and not based on facts all the time.”
    True enough, but rather than just reporting rumors, this site is increasingly getting into the business of starting rumors that have little or no basis in logic or fact.
