Your picture is way off.

First, if you have checked luggage, you MUST clear at the concourse you land in as that is where your bags will be. If that is E then you MUST clear TSA at E as there is no other option.

Second, there are no train options in play. The airside train is only airside. The outside train does not connect to the International terminal.

Third, as dave said jokingly, you most certainly do not want to circle groundside. That will almost always be longer than any TSA line.

Fourth, the TSA lines at F are not bad at all. Yes, shoes off, but still reasonably quick.

You are making way too much of an issue out of this one.
