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.

    I'd love it if Bleacher Report offered a "subscribe to Mike Tanier" feature.

    EXCELLENT column on the Eagles' Pederson. Wish one of the locals (Philly writers) had managed as much. The Eagles had virtually no competition for Pederson's services as a head coach ... little wonder why. Thanks Mike.

    The fewer facts some commenters have, the stronger their opinions become. Hey, it sure beats thinking.

    No comment section for the Greg Hardy article today? Weak

    Also, it's cute that this site's "delete comment" feature apparently operates on placebo power. Oh, and no edit button, which is a basic feature even YouTube bothers with.

    What a wonderful publication I've discovered.

    It would be okay to be "skeptical" of the allegations against Peyton Manning if there weren't 74 pages of verifiable court documents detailing the allegations, as well as witnesses that agree that his version of events has been consistently false, for the past 20 years.

    You're being willfully ignorant about known things and calling it skepticism. That's skeevy.

    I won't call you a sexist because I don't know why you are a bad journalist. If anything, I would assume money is what makes you tick, not rabid hate or ideology.
