    Most online buzz in the NFL

    Not that it helps win a SB but it certainly does help in attracting and maintaining FA at reasonable prices to manage a cap and not overpay like the also rans(which we were for many years).

    NFL Fans Generate Online Buzz in Run-up to the Football Season
    August 22, 2011

    As NFL fans gear up for the season ahead and prepare the rosters for their fantasy football teams, they head online for news and buzz about their favorite teams and players.

    Among NFL teams, the NY Jets generated the most online buzz during the off-season from blogs, message boards/groups, Twitter, Facebook, and online news posts. “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys continue to generate national interest in online discussions, although they were topped by their rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, who led NFC teams and were second in overall pre-season buzz. The NY Giants, and their regional rival, the New England Patriots, round out the top five teams with the most pre-season buzz.

    Pre-season buzz about NFL Teams
    Rank NFL Team Share of Total NFL Team Buzz
    1 New York Jets 11.9%
    2 Philadelphia Eagles 8.3%
    3 New York Giants 6.0%
    4 Dallas Cowboys 5.9%
    5 New England Patriots 4.3%

    Source: Nielsen, July 31 – August 6

    An abbreviated off-season due to the NFL lockout sparked a flurry of free-agent signings and trades of popular players, and generated considerable online buzz among sports fans. Looking at players who have changed teams ahead of the 2011 season, Reggie Bush received the most buzz during the off-season with 194k mentions. Comparing buzz about NFL players who joined new teams through free-agency or trade in recent weeks, Plaxico Burress led this group of players with more than 13k mentions during the week of July 31 – August 6, followed by Reggie Bush, Nnamdi Asomugha, Chad Ochocinco, and Donovan McNabb.
