Morning Pixels: Mike Shanahan and his ‘web prominence’

Yesterday I mentioned Comcast SportsNet’s list of the best young athletes in D.C., and as expected, readers had a few issues with some of the names included. So, here are more fun lists to pick apart. 

SI.com asked 180 NFL players who the most overrated player in the league is, and DeAngelo Hall came in a No. 19. Tim Tebow was No. 1, Tony Romo No. 3, and Tom Brady at No. 9, so Hall is in interesting company. 

In other arbitrary rankings, a company called PeekScore has ranked NFL coaches based on their web presence. The rankings are based on, according to the company’s website,  ”including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.” Pfffft. 

 Mike Shanahan came in at No. 28 on this list. Looks like Shanny needs to participate in more social networks. 

 

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER

* Pierre Garcon has a torn ligament in his foot. Fun times. 

* Rick Maese has an awesome profile on Emeka Okafor, who is  a very interesting guy.

* Feinstein on the NHL lockout.

* Boz says history tells us that being down two games to none in the World Series is going to be tough for Detroit to come.
