Sample 2010 player preview

Granted, this is an extreme example, but here’s a benefit to not doing the print magazine this year: we no longer have space limitations. This is a hardcore example, but check out Aaron Rodgers’ massive player preview. I almost think this can be expanded, but this is nearly 1000-words, which is out of control. We’re going to have all the player previews up in early-t0-mid June. As you can see from this sample, they’re going to take a little while.

Note: This has not really been edited for grammar, spelling, etc.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
