About

My name is Mike and I write Greg Schiano jokes for food. Long ago, I taught mathematics in suburban South Jersey. During standardized test sessions, I wrote articles for Football Outsiders and the New York Times. Eventually, schools began giving so many standardized tests that I was a full-time writer who proctored tests as a side job. So I quit proctoring tests. I covered the NFL for Sports on Earth for two years. Now I am at Bleacher Report, sharing statistical nuggets and offbeat observations while waiting for Congress to appoint a Poet Laureate in the category of Johnny Manziel Tweets. 'Cuz I like my odds.

    One of the things I'm just now learning, from people like you, is that the definition of race is not what I thought. People like you (and Cam Newton) equate race with behavior. Ergo, if you disapprove of someone's behavior, you are racist.

    That's what Cam meant. By "some people may not be comfortable with black quarterback," he said "This is how a black quarterback behaves."

    And then you come along and say "Yeah. So be comfortable with his behavior or you're a West Virginia tap room racist."

    Mike, re to your grade of C+ for Oakland.... I think you lack over all knowledge of the team/players. Especially defense and special teams. With that said were close.. I would have given them a B / B+. I don't base that on record alone but they should have won couple of those close games as you said.. They didn't finish and they lacked consistency. I think they are about 3-4 players from making the playoffs. With the room they have in the salary cap, continued development of the good players on the roster, another solid draft and the image of the team improved/free agency, I believe they will get those players this year. They did more than doubled there win total from last year. Their in good hands now. Definitely headed in the right direction.. FINALLY!! Its been a living hell!!! Dante

    Really. seems like you got both your teaching degree and journalism credentials from Sears. Why do you hate the Panthers, they have a 60% win record since 2012 which I would imagine is near the top of the NFL. I guess haters will hate
