Oh, I know who you are, reading Monday Morning QB on the sly, afraid to mention one thing you enjoyed because the enlightened hammer wielding local media police will crush you as a dunce and a nave foolish enough to believe something you didn't first hear on Fox News. Don Banks? Idiot. Albert Breer? Self-involved money grubbing sellout. Mike Reiss? Likely a closet Jets fan, etc. But here you go. I've got a safe, funny, talented (though you'd never know such a thing exists in the media if you believe the ever growing bunch that apparently writes "Patriots Good" on a dirty napkin, reads it over and over during breakfast, then smiles since they feel so good after reading the 'sports page') writer you may not have read. He even teases those who waste time believing the NFL is biased toward the Pats. His name is Mike Tanier. He writes a great weekly column on Friday afternoon (a Thursday game appears by itself the day before) for New York Times 5th Down Blog previewing each of that week's games. Don't miss anymore. How could you not like a guy who says about this week's game in Pitt, "The Jets, who are suffering through a never-ending adolescence, should take some impulse-control lessons from the Steelers"? He's also featured at Football Outsiders in a column called the Walkthrough. To endear him to any willing heart, I quote an excerpt from his latest piece noting that the Giants played a nearly invisible game Monday night. Describing the scroll running on ESPN..."Breaking News: Brett Favre on the sidelines in street clothes. Favre's consecutive game streak snapped at 297.
