We’re going to be waiting all week long to see how many games Tommy Boy will be suspended for his part in the scandal that has everyone from NFL Hall of Famers to Third Grade Teachers talking about balls.

PFT’s Mike Florio says that the New York Daily News’ Gary Myers says it’s not an “if” but a “when” and ultimately “how many games” when it comes to Brady’s suspension. To put it in perspective, Browns GM Ray Farmer got suspended four games for texting down to the field from the coaches’ booth during games. Now there’s no way he was texting actual plays, probably more like winky-face emoticons when he saw plays that he liked but still, four games is four games.

Frankly all I care about is the first game. If he gets suspended one game I’ll be a happy camper. It’s enough to even the playing-field for the Steelers, who will be without Le’Veon Bell, and will probably eliminate shots of Rogeez and Patriots owner Robert Kraft making out in his owners booth during the game. Win win.
