Greetings and salutations from beautiful Cleveland, Ohio. I recently asked Chris Thorman if it would be okay to write a FanPost introducing myself to the excellent AP community, and he was gracious enough to grant his blessing to the idea. Considering that I sent a similar note to every team blogger, and got his yes, one no, and 29 ignores, I appreciate it immensely.
You may have seen me around, but if not, I am a proud SB Nation alumnus, from MileHighReport.com, and yes, that does make me a Broncos fan. I work really hard to be an objective analyst, but I'd always like to see the Broncos win. I was a front page poster at MHR for about a year, and wrote a column called Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations.
I recently launched my own site, SmarterFans.com, and it's intended to be an NFL-wide enterprise, focusing on dual goals of detailed analysis and interesting writing. I've been doing much better work than national guys like Peter King for a long time, and I finally decided that I should take steps to really compete with him, and ProFootballTalk, and other national sites. Writing for a strictly Broncos-centric site limited my audience, even if I was focused on the whole league. With a non-specific national platform, I hope to reach a very wide audience.
I have a great deal of respect for your community here, and I'd be happy if some of you checked out my site, and considered becoming regular readers. You guys have the Chiefs beat covered exceptionally well here, and I hope that I can impress you enough to become your go-to guy for national coverage. Thanks for checking out SmarterFans.com, and happy football watching today.
