TCCLs are back, at least for this week, for all the old-school peeps out there. If you don't know, you better ask somebody (in the comments):
10 TCCLs - Chris Samuels - Didn't need to take a play off while shutting down Jason Taylor despite missing all that time. Flew a little under the radar but very impressive.
10 TCCLs - Jason Reid. New partner starts today. Spoke to him on the phone for the first last night and seems like a real good dude. He'll be the fourth person to share this beat with me in the last 23 months, which is maybe slightly more stable than the Skins' kicking situation pre-Shazam, but not much.
7 TCCLs - Run Defense. It needs to get back to an elite level, and that was a good first step Sunday. Much stronger tests await.
0 TCCLs - It's hard to go much lower than this score for the wide receiver when at this point he's simply doing what we thought he'd do. Par for the course.
-10 TCCLs - SpringsGate - LaVarGate. PlasmaGate. ArcheDeluxe Redux. I am so over all of this BS. Look, I know this is a rough and tumble macho world, but sometimes actual communication goes a long way. I think this thing will blow over - though I don't rule out flare ups down the road - and the bottom line is we all know this is the last year for Shawn here anyway, so let's try to make it a smooth 4 months, eh? That goes for both sides - Shawn's gotta be forthcoming about his health and the coaches owe him certain professional courtesies as well. Distrust can ruin any relationship.
-25 TCCLs - ManGenius - It's Sesame Street dude, lighten up. Relax. It's only a TV camera. It can't really hurt you. No one will think you're soft or weak - or, gasp, even human - if you act the fool for the kids on PBS.
-50 TCCLs - Goodell - You need to whack the coaches/management with the same vigor you use to discipline the players. Sure, you and I both know that even if suspended SuperCheatin' Bill will probably find a way to coach the team from the stands in disguise with a cell phone or something (a la Jose Mourinho or Bobby Valentine), but you gotta suspend him, too, if you're docking guys 4 game checks left and right for off-the-field stuff.
-100 TCCLs - Cheain'Bill - Dude, you're better than that. What would all of your dad's old peeps back at the Naval Academy thinks of this? It's not even that you did it, it's the brazen nature with which you flaunted it at the NFL in the face of repeated warnings. Pretty pathetic way to go about your business, and nice job tarnishing those rings in the process. I don't think all of this subterfuge was the difference in winning any of the Super Bowls, and I think the Pats would have been a dominant team regardless, but we'll never know for sure and that all falls at the feet of Mr. Hoodie.
-200 TCCLs - US Soccer Federation. Stop the charade and get a real manager before it's too late. You're not fooling anybody.
