Love the section on the Saints/Bills game:

The Saints’ offense has had the football for roughly 67 minutes this season. That means the Saints average 1.39 points and 13.97 yards per minute. With a no-huddle offense and a defense that blitzes about 60 percent of the time, the Bills also strive to play at a tempo of allegro assai. It’s a matter of degree: the Bills are “Bald Mountain”-era Mussorgsky, the Saints are Slayer’s Seasons in the Abyss, and they’re primed to hand out a third-straight thrashing.

The New York Times and pro football, (all sports coverage, really), are a dicey mix. While I certainly agree with the highlighted portion of that analysis, I can't help but wish that its author had finished college before he or she went to work for Dad at the NYT.

Tanier doesn't work for the NYT. It's a blog on the NYT. And what, exactly, is your criticism?
