Football Outsiders Staff Writer Mike Tanier

MIKE TANIER has been writing Football Outsiders Almanac chapters for so long that he feels like Ringo making yet another special guest appearance during a Paul McCartney show. Mike recently wrapped up a six-year run as the NFL Lead Columnist for Bleacher Report; his popular Monday Morning Digest feature will presumably be replaced by TikTok videos, cartoon GIFs of Lamar Jackson, and long apologies. A father of two with almost 20 years of experience as an NFL writer, Mike is proof positive that we all get by with a little help from our friends. You can find his work at Fansided.com, Pro Football Network, the New York Times, and here at Football Outsiders.

Thanksgiving Proclamation: Hope, Healing, Unity, Acceptance ... and Football

Whenever possible, I try to assemble something special for Thanksgiving. Longtime readers know that our family celebrates not just Thanksgiving, but my oldest son's (and my) birthday. The holiday has always taken on a special significance to me, as I have always been a firm believer in our nation's civic spirit, a belief that has gotten rather rickety in the last few weeks.
