All-pro information upgraded

Posted by Doug on April 13, 2008

When the site re-launched in December, a player was declared an an all-pro if he made first- or second-team on any of the various all-pro teams that were named in a given year. So a second-team all-NFC player and a unanimous first-team all-NFL guy were both simply called "all-pro." You may have noticed that, a few days ago, we essentially switched the meaning of "all-pro" to "first team AP all-pro." We've left that definition intact, but have now added a great deal more info.

The all-pro pages --- like this one, for example --- now provide you with a lot more information on which players were named to which teams. Also, the player pages have a list of all-pro honors, right below their leaderboard appearances. Jerry Rice made a lot of all-pro teams.

And a bit of unrelated news....

Prepare yourself for a site announcement tomorrow (Monday) night that some percentage of you will be very, very excited about. I really don't know what that percentage is, but if you're in it, you won't want to miss this announcement. UPDATE: announcement postponed until Tuesday morning. Sorry for the delay.
