I'm a husband, father of three, full time Bleacher Report writer and member of the Pro Football Writers of America. A lover of food, drink, song, words, and infographics, I've been obsessed with the NFL since before I can remember. A lifelong Lions fan, I'm also into hockey, soccer (especially USMNT and Liverpool FC) and all things Michigan State.

Besides covering the NFL for Bleacher Report, I keep my own Lions blog, The Lions in Winter. You probably shouldn't follow me on Twitter (@tyschalter) unless you share some of my passions, because I Tweet about them constantly—so if you do, you probably should.

    Ty just read your article on fans energy impacting game - I have two concrete examples: Seahawks blowing the Super Bowl and Minnesota Missing the field goal in playoff. In both cases the fans energy helped the teams get into position to win, but in each case the fans let their energy lapse because when their teams finally got in position to easily win (SEA 1st and goal - MIN easy FG) the fans let out a collective sigh of relief thinking "we got this" and the energy dissipated and then each team failed to accomplish the seemingly easy play.

    Regarding the Colts secondary getting shredded by Fitzpatrick of the NYJ, did you even know that 3 of the Colts' top CBs were out with injures? Did you even watch the game?

    your power rankings are a complete joke. KC at 2, and the Pats at 14? if you think there are 13 better teams in the NFL you're higher than hell. steelers in the late teens? Seattle not in the top 10? i guess it just goes to show anyone can be an 'expert' at bleacher report. do you watch football? either you don't or you're basically just a paid troll. no one wants to hear your uneducated and unreasonable opinions.
