    Damn! I bashed him as much as anyone based on his former stint, but he sure seemed to be doing more than other pass rushers. He even made some tackles. Damn! What's going on?

    The Turk is loose!

    odds are it is just a dream.

    I am just thinking that they are getting ready to make a move before tuesday, and I would like to see a pass rusher onboard.

    It makes no sense to me. Wonder if they're just trying to free up space for a draft pick for veteran trade. TBC is probably less susceptible to being scooped-up, given that he'll be a UFA next year, so whoever picks him up will need him to provide value this year, whereas a guy like Ninkovich or Woods would be under a team's control if they picked one of them off the waiver wire.

    I'm still mystified. I feel like TBC was playing the best ball of his career and that he'd figured it out. I did wonder whether Lockett might be on the outs after having the only negative play of the day, taunting the Titans, while the rest of his teammates let their play do all the talking that could ever be needed.

    I think Bill has a dartboard in his office ... behind his office chair. He blindly heaves a dart over his shoulder, turns around and cuts a player from the positional pie chart on the board. Everyone thinks he give these things great thought. In reality, he is keeping the media occupied while he goes about the real business of coaching the team.
