I used to rail against eye-candy sideline reporters, but I'm afraid I lost that battle. Thank you, Melissa Stark. So I might as well exploit 'em for WTFF awards.
Local Pittsburgh sideline twinkie Trenni Kusnierek, who once said that the Steelers would go from a play-calling ratio of 65% runs to 45% passes to a more balanced 60/45% ratio, turned in another mathematical gem last night. Arguing that Willie Parker gets better as the game goes on, Kusnierek said:
"And the stats back that up. Parker had just 34 yards after the first quarter, but he gained his final 100 yards in the final three quarters."
