2010 TC III: Cut Line Clues

The heart wrenching parental guidance miniseries House of Glass: The David Baas Story continued through Day 3 of TC, as our hero posed on the sidelines in various postures of dismay, gazing forlornly at his practicing teammates. Baas’ yearly injury

Rayes of Hope

Jimmy Raye was Mike Singletary’s first, and most controversial, hire. Not only was Raye himself seen as a dubious choice for Offensive Coordinator, but the process of selecting him took nearly a month and, to some fans, reflected poorly on

It’s a Wrap

The OTAs ended yesterday and will not be appearing again until June 7. If you failed to enjoy them, you have two and a half weeks to suffer for your thoughtlessness. Nate Clements tossed $500,000 down the toilet by not
