when(hypothetically speaking) this website succeeds in the future and when ever time is allowed... I think it'd be awesome if there was a viewable database attached to the website with the ratings you use for the simulations. So we know exactly the value of who we draft.
Also i got a question... is there contracts? if not could it be possible to put them in there as well?
On the player ratings, they are not completely known. Our first season will be based on the performances of players during the 2011 season. So you need to project how good the players will be in 2011 and beyond. For past seasons, Rain Man is correct, there isn't a simple player rating, it is a complex formula based on what makes real NFL teams win, as closely as I can simulate it. In the future, we may have a "hint" function. But you will be best off doing your own research. This makes the game very realistic in that you have to use your knowledge of NFL players and the game of football to succeed.
