I'm a husband, father of three, full time Bleacher Report writer and member of the Pro Football Writers of America. A lover of food, drink, song, words, and infographics, I've been obsessed with the NFL since before I can remember. A lifelong Lions fan, I'm also into hockey, soccer (especially USMNT and Liverpool FC) and all things Michigan State.
Besides covering the NFL for Bleacher Report, I keep my own Lions blog, The Lions in Winter. You probably shouldn't follow me on Twitter (@tyschalter) unless you share some of my passions, because I Tweet about them constantly—so if you do, you probably should.
Just read that Redskins article (a little late I know). Please stop reaching with this Redskins thing. Do us all a favor.
seriously, how does this guy remain gainfully employed as a NFL writer for Bleacher Report?...obviously missed your 'calling'.
sick and tired of bleacher report writers and their compulsion for social commentary. STFU!! Note to Ty - Redskins are private property. You and your other asshole PC writers don't get a say.
I live in DC. You obviously don't. Us in DC have generations of people who feel a special connection to the Redskins. While the name may be racist we are not trying to offend native americans. Our logo is not offensive. Look at the Cleveland Indians logo. Thats offensive. There is also a freedom of speech law in this country. Its right there in the Constitution. Dan Snyder owns the team, and, unlike George Preston Marshall, is most definitely not a racist, so that makes your integration argument obsolete. I strongly disagree with your article and feel that you should stick to matters that you understand fully.
Wow, you have the Dolphins as last in the league. they lost one legitimate starter on Defense, 2 Tackles & Guard that gave up 58 sacks on the Offense. Did you watch the draft? have you reviewed any of the transaction in free agency. Apparently there is a prize for given for your 200 article and your trying to up your numbers. The Dolphins finished 8-8 last season and you Lions 7-9 you have them ranked 12th on your list LOL. Is Calvin Johnson going to play CB? I say we let them work it out on the field in November this year. Homer!
So i just wrote a response here & decided to delete it. I did not use any bad language in it but I told you what I thought about your attempt at power rankings. Lets just say if i see your name as the writer of an article I will not waste my time ever again. I will just leave at that.
Horrible analysis regarding the power rankings.
Miami is the worst team in the league because they lost quality defenders and gutted their OL? Really??
They were supposed to keep a line that gave up 58 sacks? I know the perception was James was a reach but a major, major reach is another exaggeration on your part in an effort to make a bad point. 49 starts in the SEC
SI, Kiper, NFL Network had him as a second rounder. PFT had him as a first rounder.
Billy Turner was another highly regarded prospect.
The line now has young talent and a new OL coach along with 2 Pro Bowlers in Pouncey and Albert. I feel a lot better about the line this year but then again I watch this team more than you apparently do.
As for the defense who did they lose of consequence? Soliai who was replaced by Earl Mitchell. Are you going to tell us that Chris Clemons and the awful Nolan Carroll are major losses?
You are delusional like the GM who takes a TE when he doesn't have a corner who can cover.
Why can't we leave comments on the michael sam story? Probably for the same reason that we can't leave comments on the brittney griner story on the wnba page. It's because you journalist just want to throw your agenda in our face without us being able to comment. That's crap man.

It's because you journalist know that the overwhelming majority of the population are against these perverts and you just want to be able to throw your agenda in our face without us being able to comment.
Disappointed that your latest article--about Michael Sam, the inspirational story of the 2014 NFL draft--did not allow for comments, for some reason. Perhaps yours is the only opinion we need on the subject? Nah, that's a bunch of crap.
