If the Texans truly are the real deal, Bob McNair will deserve all kinds of credit for staying the course with Gary Kubiak and seeing a larger picture, writes Richard Justice of the Houston Chronicle. He believed in Kubiak when almost no one else did.
The Texans have surrendered only 2,466 yards, writes John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Through nine games last season, they had allowed 3,687. That's an improvement of 33 percent.
As the Colts sink deeper, it’s misery revisited for Dan Orlovsky, writes Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
The Colts signed blocking tight end Anthony Hill, a one-time Texans draft pick, says Chappell. We don’t know the corresponding roster move yet, but it could be Dallas Clark or Brody Eldridge to IR.
The Jaguars' new wide receiver, Brian Robiskie, is convinced he can be great in the right situation, writes Vito Stellino of the Times-Union.
Gene Smith names Paul Posluszny, Maurice Jones-Drew and Josh Scobee as team MVPs to this point, says Tania Ganguli of the T-U.
Mike Munchak says Matt Hasselbeck is his man and there is no plan to turn to Jake Locker, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
The Titans are preparing for their second rookie quarterback in a row, but Cam Newton is a lot different than Andy Dalton, says Wyatt.
