Pre-season is like giving a person who hasn't eaten in food in 8 months a few grains of rice.

It really doesn't give us much... but we'll savor every bit of it.

I don't like it as much as the old site lol, I can't find the articles that the NFL.com writers like Adam Schefter, Pat Kirwan, Clark Judge, etc. usually do. And yes, i'm so fargin happy that in two short hours I will get to see some live action football featuring the Washington Redskins again.

it's pretty to look at. Their code is clean and they're using CSS for their layout which is always desired. The only thing they need to do now is:

1. Strip the empty lines in the html and send the browser compressed content.
2. Load content on-demand and use ajax calls for the tabs. As it stands the site loads everything and is almost 1MB (ouch).

it is an excess page load (i don't have a 15mbit connection for the next 3 months, and at <2mbit, it takes a while).

looks pretty nice though.

Quick Question - (to Sadden or anyone) I was wondering if you could give a brief description of the benefits of AJAX (looking into incorporating into a private website). I've already checked Wikipedia, etc. Please keep in mind - I am very cpu savvy, but not a programmer. If you had a link to any good info on the topic, that would be great. thanks for any assistance.

Annnnd thread hijacked.

In a nutshell AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript And XML) lets you update content on a webpage without refreshing / reloading the entire page.

Case in point, the tabs on NFL.com When you click between "Fantasy, "Spotlight" and "Voices" the content is changed instantly without reloading the entire page.

As far as the benefits as a user interface element it makes for faster, cleaner, more efficient browsing for the end user. It's the new hotness in the past year or two, what with Google pushing it like mad. It's nothing really that new, however, just a new way of using technologies that have been around for a while.

I am of the opinion that you need a good reason to actually incorporate AJAX, not just for the sake of using the latest techno-buzzword. The most useful implementation is if you have a lot of data in different categories that you would like your user to view without waiting for a page refresh. NFL.com has actually implemented it quite well, and the ultimate AJAX use in my opinion is pretty much anything Google does (Gmail, iGoogle, etc.)
