    Let me remind you that you called him "captain cliche" which I assume meant you believe Tomlin repeats the SAME stuff that others do. He does. They all say the same non-responsive stuff. It's only interesting when coaches spazz out on something which, to his credit, I don't think I've ever seen Tomlin really do.

    Nope, Tomlin makes up his own n cliches. Let me know when other coaches boomerang , unleash hell, defend every blade and such as life mumbo jumbo.

    Maybe you don't know what a cliche is. If you want to learn what they are, watch Bill Bellicheck after next week's win.

    Let me chew on it. Taste it. Enjoy it. Swallow it. Digest it. And get back to you. Obviously I know it probably tastes like it smells.

    Perhaps neither of you know what a cliche is. Again, see Bellicheck comments after next week. He will give many examples of what a cliche is.

    "and things of that nature" would not be considered a cliche. It's more of a verbal tic, similar to "ya know?" or the famous Pittsburgh verbal tic "n'at." It's the way he talks, knaw what I'm sayin'?

    "boomerang" is not a NFL cliche that I'm aware of. The way Tomlin used it was as a metaphor, which does not make it a cliche. My subjective opinion is that it's not a bad metaphor for describing situations in which a player will receive a second chance, and better be ready or its will be his last.

    "unleash hell" - I'm sure Tomlin regrets this one, and has probably never used it again. Young coach learns his lesson about making predictions in the NFL. This seems to be very old news to be raised here continuously the way it is.

    "defend every blade of grass" - this may be a NFL cliche, but I doubt it rises to that level. Whatever it is, seems pretty mundane, and hardly worthy of criticism.

    The two Tomlin phrases that strangely neither of you cited are "the standard is the standard" and "next man up." The former may be a cliche now (and actually Tomlin may have invented it). It's also called a truism or tautology, which automatically makes it stupid to me, but by NFL standards, it's downright witty. "next man up" is probably the only consistent cliche I've seen Tomlin use.
