When I'm drafting, there's typically three things that I want to know about a player:
Typically I go to these sources to answer those questions:
Whether it's a slow email draft or a live draft, I want to get the information as fast as possible. Since I use Firefox, I wanted a way to put the first two sites as custom search engines in the Firefox toolbar.
After some searching, I found the Add to Search Bar add-on. It's really easy to use, and here is how I used it to add PFR and FBG to my search toolbar:
Then edit the name or just hit enter and you should see PFR in the search box! Go ahead and search for a player and you're taken directly to their career stats page.
Then you can go to Football Guys News and do the same. My search bar now looks like this:
Obviously, if you have other sites you prefer to use this will work for any of them that have search boxes. I'm not associated with PFR or FBG at all. Just sharing a tip that I've found useful.
For Internet Explorer users, this link should help you do the same thing: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx. It only works for IE7 though; IE6 doesn't have a search bar. I don't use IE7 so I haven't tried it myself.
Give it a try! I think you'll find it easier to look up player information during those precious few moments during a draft.
