We’ve been following the players and teams. Let’s take a step back and tally up the numbers so far. How many articles have been written, who was the most covered person?
September is still tops. Since the start of the season, there have been 185,683 news articles published; with a single-month high of 171,117 articles in September; a single-week high of 53,438 articles September 15-21; and a one-day high of 9,431 articles on September 19.
People with the Most Buzz
Running down the list of most talked about people in the NFL shows Roger Goodell, Ray Rice, and Adrian Peterson leading the way. As mentioned earlier, this is not for good reasons. After the top three, six of the remaining seven slots are dominated by quarterbacks. Manning received a large amount of coverage due to his historic touchdown pass. Brady has received a large amount of coverage due to his ups and downs in performance this year.
AMEC Measurement Week took place in September across five continents and 49 countries, with 80 hours of learning and discussion. The goal, according to the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC), was to create a better understanding around the latest thinking in measurement and analytics. Following on the heels of Measurement Week, the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) conference last month featured a pre-conference PRSA/AMEC Measurement Symposium.
There’s tremendous pressure from all sides for PR and marketing to demonstrate value to the business in terms that the business can understand. That means showing impact on business outcomes versus AVEs (advertising value equivalency).
The question is how, not why
Everyone agrees that measuring impact would help communications professionals hone their efforts and justify PR strategies to stakeholders. The problem is that many PR professionals and communications leaders are still challenged with exactly how to measure the effect of their efforts on outcomes (Barcelona Principle #2) such as customer sentiment or share price.

Quarterbacks are dominating the NFL media coverage, as shown below in the pie chart of the top 10 most mentioned people. Only one player, DeMarco Murray, is not a quarterback. Tony Romo leads the coverage with his injury, and Peyton Manning and Tom Brady round out the top three after their matchup Sunday night.
With the NFL looking to expand its reach to a worldwide audience, let’s see how many NFL stories are showing up around the globe. The US had over 100,000 articles published in the past 31 days, and the UK figures reflect about 3% as much coverage. Another interesting fact is the expansion of NFL articles into Africa and Asia. The quantity of articles are still low in other countries, but the NFL may be making progress tapping into new markets.
