I am a football-obsessed NFL writer currently residing in Chicago, Illinois charged with managing Bleacher Report's AFC North Blog (http://bleacherreport.com/afcnorthblog) five glorious days a week. Born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, football is in my blood. It's all I do, and I'm proud to be doing it here.
You can follow me on Twitter (@FBALL_Andrea) for around-the-clock NFL news and musings, as well as fantasy football ranting and the ever-important advice. It's a guaranteed good time!
I can't believe that you don't have Chuck Noll's name on your list of favorite coaches.
Like your articles. I'm a Ravens fan but in the interest of high competition that we have come to rely on in the AFC North, I am disturbed by an article. I was reading an article on NFL.com by Matt Sessler (I think) about AFC North needs. He goes on to list, not only the major needs for each team, but other needs for the team as well. Example, for the Ravens he had our major need at ILB. Other needs listed for us were S, OT, so on and so forth. I read through all of the other teams needs, too. What surprised me and the reason that I am writing to you is because for every team except Cleveland, he listed WR as a need to be filled. Does Cleveland have a A.J. Green/Calvin Johnson/Andre Johnson attack that I am not aware of? I know that they keep jettisoning QB's and blaming them for their shortcomings but never seem to realize that they have no wide receivers to throw to. Massoquoi and Little? And they don't have a need for WR? Please help me on this. This guy was writing for NFL.com.
I recently read your "Studs and Duds of the Bengals' last five draft classes" and truly enjoyed it.
I was wondering if you planned on doing a similar piece with the Browns last five drafts. They'd be plenty of duds to chose from at least.
Keep up the good work.
She is a Steelers fan @ripper
which football team is your fave since you are from pa?
and another thing...do you think mat barkley is going to the browns....
i think he will ........when the smoke clears be the best QB in this draft...
keep up the good work.......you are one of the better writers online
You're one of my favorite writers on here, keep it up!
Damn I didn't know there was so much profuse comments about Ms. Hangst. I like your articles. I see them as informative and are as objective as possible. Obviously in the sports writing world you have to formulate an opinion.
-Keep up the good work....
I really think you're a terrible sports analyst. You really only point out the obvious things and never truly go in-depth. The fact that you have your own blog on B/R is laughable. This does not mean you can not become an average, or even good, sports writer, but you should think with some more common sense when writing things and perhaps learn how to better break down game film/ watch it at all.
I read an article that you wrote with an extremely misleading title. In this past weeks Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh game, the Bengals defense WON the game, please out of callused ignorance and disappointment, don't "spin" a headline to take something away from a team who played a gritty game and DESERVED to win!
I'm sorry but both offenses struggled mightily, both QBs threw 2 INTs both coaches gambled on long field goals and missed. Let's not forget a fumble by A.J. Green late as well. The difference in the end was Cincinnati capitalizing off of turnovers whereas the Squeelers failed to do so time and time again. SO DON'T WRITE BIASED CRAP THAT ATTEMPTS TO TAKE CREDIT AWAY FROM ONE TEAM WHOSE DEFENSE WAS DOMINATE DESPITE AN INEPT OFFENSE AND SAY THAT THE OTHER TEAM JUST "GAVE" IT TO THEM! Seriously where is the objective integrity in that? Oh wait... there is none. Had the Steelers won the game, I'm sure the headline would of read something to the effect of - "Steelers defense tightens in tough fought contest to stay alive for playoffs."
HELLO HOW MANY TIMES DID GENO ATKINS FORCE HIS WAY TO BIG CRY BABY BEN AND KNOCK HIS FAT BUTT DOWN? THE BENGALS PRESSURED THE BIG BOY ALL DAY, WHICH IN TURN FORCED TURNOVERS AND THEIR DEFENSE PUT THEM IN POSITION TO WIN IN THE END! IF THE STEELERS HAD DONE IT YOU'D BE GIVING THEM ALL THE CREDIT IN THE WORLD, AND WOULDN'T WRITE AN ARTICLE ENTITLED - "BENGALS GIVE GAME AWAY, AND GIVE STEELERS PLAYOFF HOPE!" QUITE FRANKLY BIASED HACKS LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON BLEACHER REPORT SUCKS!
A COWARD IS SOMEONE WHO REFUSES TO GIVE CREDIT, EVEN WHEN THEY'VE BEEN BESTED! YOU ARE THE DEFINITION OF A BIASED, GUTLESS, CRY-BABY, SORE-LOSER, COWARD!
... AND AS A JOURNALIST YOU ARE THE DEFINITION OF AN OPINIONATED HACK!
Hey Andrea! I liked your giftwrap article. I don't know why Bengals fans, which I am, aren't being more critical of the absolutely terrible offense. even if you and I are wrong about that being a "big deal" or not...it is a point worth bringing up. Anyways, just wanted to put out a positive comment there. I made a response to some guys misogynist comment and got hit back with his racism. The life of writing online I suppose..
