RTC: Ahmard Hall, media darling


Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

Setbacks and injuries were Eugene Wilson’s story last year, but he played well when healthy and is ready to be part of a breakout season, says Jordan Godwin.

Gary Kubiak plans to get a look at all of his running backs against Arizona, says John McClain.

Jeremiah Johnson is showing good toughness, says Godwin.

Antoine Caldwell is being pushed by Wade Smith, says McClain.

Antonio Smith sees the same growth potential in Houston that he did in his early years playing for Arizona.

Indianapolis Colts

My Camp Confidential.

The Colts are well-stocked at safety, says Mike Chappell.

If Peyton Manning goes down, things will be in Curtis Painter’s hands, says Bob Kravitz.

The Colts are looking at three defenders as options for fullback snaps, says Chappell. If short-yardage is such a big concern, why don’t they ever consider a fullback for fullback?

John Oehser looks back at the first two weeks of camp.

New Titan Raheem Brock explains why he asked the Colts to release him.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Five questions about the Jags heading into their game in Philly Friday night, from Vito Stellino.

Two city councilmen skipped out on a meeting after the vote on the EverBank naming rights deal to go to dinner with some Jaguars executives, says Tia Mitchell.

The safeties are a bigger concern than the interior offensive line, says Vic Ketchman.

Tennessee Titans

Alterraun Verner is showing a nose for the ball, says John Glennon.

Brock can’t wait for a chance to hit Manning, say Jim Wyatt and Bryan Mullen. He’ll need to make the team first.

Brock wants to go to the Pro Bowl, says David Boclair.

An injury update heading into the trip to Seattle, from Wyatt.

Could a more mature Vince Young balance out the Titans' offense. Steve Wyche examines the question.

The brothers Simms are reunited in Tennessee, says Beth Rucker.

Ahmard Hall won Bob McClellan’s informal poll for the best Titan for media to deal with. I voted Hall No. 1, Vincent Fuller No. 2 and Stephen Tulloch No. 3, though I expect Will Witherspoon will press them as I get to know him. Perhaps I should have scored Tulloch down for his inability or unwillingness to talk after some tough losses last year.
