Are You Ready for Some Football?

For the past few weeks, Major League Baseball has been the only game in town — and the only Sports Shortcut on Yahoo! Search. But all that has changed. The National Football League is on the horizon, putting an end to the preseason speculation, the glory of last year’s Fantasy Football championships and the “Who’s now” segments on SportsCenter. To celebrate, we’re launching the NFL Sports Shortcuts at Yahoo! Search. For instance, searching for Randy Moss (happy to be a Patriot) or Steven Jackson (sporting a decent pirate mustache) will display the same vital information and quick links you’ve come to expect. I plan on using the shortcuts to do some quick checks on this year’s “sleepers” — players who surprise everyone with unexpectedly good performances. My pick is…


D.J. Hackett. He isn’t an unknown by any means, but I think he’ll do better than his #90 Yahoo! Fantasy suggests.

Please try the NFL Sports Shortcut for yourself and let me know what you think. We have shortcuts for nearly all NFL players and you’ll also see a News shortcut when appropriate (is it Tom Brady’s kid or not?!).

What’s next for Sports shortcuts on Yahoo! Search? I’ll give you a hint… it’s a chant that has been heard at the Detroit Lions’ home games: “LET’S GO RED-WINGS!!!”
