You've landed on our site...maybe you are a TMW veteran wondering about some of the particulars of our history or future plans, or maybe you're a newcomer trying to sort the wheat from the chaff in the NFL predictions oriented world.
TwoMinuteWarning.com was founded in 1997, when a bunch of NFL fanatics with different interests (stat geeks, fantasy players, those with an interest in becoming consultants to NFL teams, and yes...gamblers) got together to start charting drives to provide additional insight into what really matters in pro football.
Year by Year notes
1997 - private site with no public access
1998 - completely free public access, weekly predictions posted based on drive chart stats
1999 - free access, new emphasis on play by play level data, as well as contrarian indicators, straight up office pool picks
2000 - still free, U.P.M debuts with resounding success, monster season for the overlays
2001 - first season with some Subscriber-only content, Trends column debuts
2002 - "Best Bets" feature, Injury Report column, Summary Sheet debut
2003 - another solid season, Scott taking on more responsibilities as site founder Roland focuses on basketball, Full Story debuts
2004 - 70% year for the Red Zone column, another powerful overlays campaign
2005 - Roland leaves for NBA work, Scott in charge..."year of the favorite" produces poor gambling results, Barrington Henry shines
2006 - reverts to free access for all tools, but pay for Staff Picks, fabulous season, including 60% Station's Contest record
2007 - site's tone/mantra changed to "Dead Serious"...return of full fledged subscriber-only content area, but still with a vast array of free features, including office pool picks, weekly best bet freebie, research articles & more
