Tanier's NFL Game Riffs: Week 2

Oh brother, another Brother Bowl. Plus an Eyebrow Bowl. But also: regression analysis of Ndamukong Suh's fines, a breakdown of the Colts and Dolphins new acquisitions, some ABBA, Gerald Riggs, and the geography of Revis Island.

"Mathematics fans and Suh's accountants should take note that Suh's fines can be modeled by this equation: $ = 2634(2.03)^t, where t is the number of years since Suh's 2009 debut. According to the model, if Suh wails Carson Palmer in the knee with a hydrant wrench during pregame introductions, he will be fined $104,615. More interestingly, if Suh does something horrible in the year 2022, his 13th season, he will incur a fine of $26 million dollars. By that point, of course, he will either have retired, cleaned up his act, or become Bane."

Very nice, Tanier, to read something that makes you literally laugh out loud. And look-- all that math background helped you make a joke!

If Suh would transform into Bane, would Evan Dietrich-Smith transform into Batman?
