The Digital Footprints of the 10 Highest-Paid Coaches in American Sports

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.

Here again we’re grouping folks together based on the sizes of their paydays. This time, it’s the The Highest-Paid Head Coaches in American Sports.

Below are eight coaches from the NFL and only two from NBA, but it is one those latter two who is the most impactful here on the web.

Remember, the PeekScore is not an assessment and/or critique of skill or value, or even necessarily fame in the flesh and blood world. It is an at-a-glance snapshot of an individual’s current impact and presence in cyberspace (or their “digital footprints,” as it were, a concept explained in brief in this entry’s header, and more in-depth here).

Folks in these here United States do love our American rules football, as played at the highest professional level by the NFL. The 2012 season is well underway, and it’s time for us to give the good people of this fine nation a bit more of what they want.

With this entry we’ve decided to pay tribute to all 32 of the noble field generals who have been leading, weekend after weekend, these estimable battle torn ensembles into the arena of graceful combat (to employ a bit of wretchedly purple prose, in the style of those amazing 70s NFL highlight films). Or, in simpler terms, we’re taking a look at the digital footprints (a concept you will find explained in the disclaimer above or more in depth by clicking through here) of the NFL’s head coaches.

Super Bowl XLVI: The PeekScores of the New York Giants’ Top Players (and Head Coach)

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.

This here is one of a pair of entries, assessing the online impacts of the most prominent individuals comprising the two teams who will be facing off against each other in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on February 5, for Super Bowl XLVI. In this entry we look at Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin, and the current top players for the New York Giants.

In keeping with the sorts of things we often disclaim, we stress that this is not a commentary on the athletic prowess, wealth, generosity, or manliness of any of the fellows listed here. This is a measurement and comparison of their digital footprints, as quantified on our PeekScore scale (an explanation of which can be found above, or in more detail by clicking here).

We’ll leave it to the sports experts – both armchair and actual – to opine who who’s better or stronger, or who wants it more. We’re a New York company, with a CEO from New England, so it’s best that we just stay out of talk of winners or losers. We can say with some authority, though, that when it comes to digital footprints these two teams are frightfully, evenly matched. If you’d like to see how evenly, you can click through here to see how the Patriots’ top players measure up.

The PeekScores of the 2011-2012 NFL Playoffs’ Head Coaches

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

The holiday season has come and gone and a new year is underway, which means – to a terrifically large number of Americans – that another precious season is upon us; the NFL playoffs. With the wild card games now behind, eight teams remain hoping to find themselves as one of the two who will be in Indianapolis on February 5, for Super Bowl XLVI.

With this entry we’ve decided to pay tribute to all twelve of the noble field generals who have been leading, weekend after weekend, these estimable battle torn ensembles into the arena of graceful combat, and now have marched their loyal men triumphantly into the post-season (to employ a bit of wretchedly purple prose, in the style of those amazing 70s NFL highlight films). Or, in simpler terms, we’re taking a look at the digital footprints of the twelve playoff teams’ head coaches.

A couple of these gentlemen have Twitter accounts, some have personal websites, but for the most part this group unsurprisingly steers clear of social media. Right now especially, however, given the playoff heat on their teams, each finds their name repeatedly mentioned in the ether and throughout the news media and blogosphere. All PeekScores are present and healthy.

Do any of these results surprise you? Who are you rooting for and/or against in the playoffs? Let us know in the comments.
