RTC: Old Oilers show support for Kubiak

Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

Bum Phillips and Dan Pastorini visited the Texans and voiced support for Gary Kubiak, says Dale Robertson. Is this what it’s come to?

Daryl Sharpton is on IR, says John McClain.

Richard Justice shreds the idea of sticking with the status quo.

Wade Phillips could be the new defensive coordinator for Gary Kubiak if he survives, says Jason LaCanfora.

Indianapolis Colts

The revived running game makes Peyton Manning more dangerous, says Mike Chappell.

Jeff Fisher thinks Antoine Bethea is Pro Bowl-worthy, says Phil Richards. Side note: We know that Michael Griffin is the first alternate safety.

Bill Polian belittles any attempt where people outside the game try to understand how the NFL works, says Aaron Schatz. That post was set off by comments Nate Dunlevy broke down here.

Jacksonville Jaguars

David Garrard is having finger surgery and Trent Edwards is starting in Houston on Sunday, writes Tania Ganguli.

A casino is defying the NFL’s demand that it remove a Garrard photo from an ad, says David Bauerlein.

Fisher is a Jaguars friend, not a foe, this week, says Vito Stellino.

Surgery is a possibility for Maurice Jones-Drew after the season’s over, says Ganguli.

Tennessee Titans

Chris Johnson believes his value remains high, writes Jim Wyatt.

Griffin supports Fisher, say Wyatt and John Glennon.

Why is Fisher so well-regarded, wonders Mike Freeman.
