I do, I get the mag, access to all the bs on the site and access to their fantasy match-up analyzer which is actually somewhat decent. $4.95 a month or something like that... it's really not that bad!

It is free for 30 days. Try it and see if you like it. The only stats I can not find hardly anywhere are the Red Zone ones. I had to get the Gamelogs and do them Myself. Check out the QB ratings formula:
Step 1: Complete passes divided by pass attempts. Subtract 0.3, then divide by 0.2
Step 2: Passing yards divided by pass attempts. Subtract 3, then divide by 4.
Step 3: Touchdown passes divided by pass attempts, then divide by .05.
Step 4: Start with .095, and subtract interceptions divided by attempts. Divide the difference by.04.
The sum of each step cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero. Add the sum of the Steps 1 through 4, multiply by 100 and divide by 6.
Good thing I just took My Stats Class last year!

Given that their NFL shows are crap and don't really reveal anything new, I doubt that their insider package is all that much better. ESPN sucks--as evident by their unvieling of their MNF broadcast team.
Sportscenter and Poker are about the only things bearable to watch on that network and ESPNews is about to replace Sportscenter on my list.

yeah ESPN insider normally doesn't tell you anymore than what you can find in team papers.
i've had it before & i'm not impressed
