Re: Best Twitter Follows

I like @ProFootbalFocus (spelt wrong purposely)

They're not spectacular, but the articles they publish are interesting at worst and very informative at best. Definitely a site, if not a twitter follower that you might want to check out.

@CBSFantasyFB (Injury and Player Updates)

Heard about Foster pulling a hammy with this, Chris Ivory's surgery, etc. Seems like it will be helpful.

Re: Best Twitter Follows

Thanks, everybody -- keep 'em coming and I'll keep our list growing.

I'm going to sticky this thread until the beginning of the season, for quick reference.

Don't call it a comeback.

Re: Best Twitter Follows

There was a thread like this last season containing beat writers for each team, but it never got the attention it deserved.

Bye-bye, Li'l Sebastian

This one? I'm happy to keep it updated if anyone has more suggestions...

Don't call it a comeback.

Re: Best Twitter Follows

Nope, it was put up by a different member with beat writer's Twitter accounts.  That one's nice, but I'd prefer a list with specific people's accounts.

Bye-bye, Li'l Sebastian

Re: Best Twitter Follows

This one? We can keep working on it...

Don't call it a comeback.

Re: Best Twitter Follows

I really like Andy Behrens. He's another guy that has the same sort of draft mentality that Kevin and Lyle do. The Yahoo! Podcast, while I don't listen to it every week, is better than ESPN's and is far better than the piece of crap CBS puts out there.

Re: Best Twitter Follows

I see you found Empulses post.  While far from complete I found it helpful.  Greg Bedard is now for the Patriots not the Packers.

Bye-bye, Li'l Sebastian

"I checked in at Applebee's Restaurant" -- LOL.

You're on the list because I assume you're going to start Tweeting about football. Make us proud.

[Edit: I gave you a +1 for contributing, and because you got lit up with negs last night. If you see things going downhill like that again, maybe step away for a few hours to let things cool down.]

Don't call it a comeback.
