PowerHouse is launching December 1st. We’ve been in development technically for a year, and as a business for twice that (literally, to the day.) We saw a sudden jump in members over the past couple of days, and we’re psyched to have you on board.
It turns out that accurately modeling all the rules that NFL GMs follow is pretty complicated. So, if you see some things that aren’t exactly right, rest assured that we’re hard at work on them (but definitely let us know when you see something that doesn’t work properly.)
You’re part of a very exclusive group. I’ve been running a team, based on these rules, on an Excel spreadsheet, since 1995 (my first-ever draft pick was Luther Ellis, DT/Det, at 1/19.) For 15 years, I did this just to entertain myself, as I always wanted to see how I could do as an NFL GM.
I’ve learned a ton about running an NFL team over all this time. Maybe the hardest lesson has been how hard it is to find a QB. I haven’t missed out on so many opportunities to find a franchise QB. It’s more like there aren’t that many.
More on that in the future.
We’re glad you’re here. We hope you like what we’re doing. We hope you’ll be patient as we continue to improve things. We hope you’ll share lots and lots of feedback to help us make PowerHouse and iGM the best that it can be.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Your interest in what we’re doing is one of the things I’m thankful for this year!
