Football season is a blur for me personally, featuring seven full days per week of work, none of which is really work. So it’s important every once in a while to press the pause button and say thanks to the folks who deserve to be thanked.
First and foremost, I want to thank you. Every year, the traffic goes up, on every platform from web to tablet to mobile. There’s surely a ceiling out there somewhere; hopefully, we’ll never hit it.
I also need to thank the guys who crank out the content. We now have a posting window that goes from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. ET every weekday — barring fits of insomnia like the one I had last night after getting home from Stamford, Connecticut.
We’re getting high quality, timely, and insightful work from MDS, Darin Gantt, Josh Alper, Curtis Crabtree, and Evan Silva. The operation really has gotten to the point where I could drop dead and it will continue indefinitely. And those of you who want me to drop dead are now rooting even harder for it.
We’re also still cranking away beyond the written word. PFT Live has been going strong every weekday for nearly two years, and Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network has quickly found an audience, the size of which continues to expand. So thanks to producers Matt Casey and Michael Kane, cohost Erik Kuselias, and a great group of analysts and contributors including Rodney Harrison, Peter King, Hines Ward, Doug Flutie, Ross Tucker, Shaun King, Pete Najarian, Amani Toomer, and Bob Glauber.
The best is still yet to come — for the season and for this operation that started in 2001 with maybe three items per day and now routinely cranks out more than 50 or 60 different articles each and every day of the year.
We wouldn’t be here without you, and we hope you’ll be here for as long as we are.
