Reading the coverage...
“The Texans' red zone offense has plummeted from prolific to pathetic over the last four games,” says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. I’ve got some thoughts on this topic coming in a bit.
Houston players are pledging to be ready for the Patriots this time, says Randy Harvey of the Chronicle.
The week leading up to the Texans-Patriots game is going to be filled with lies, says Jerome Solomon of the Chron.
The Patriots allow big plays, but they don’t turn into points as much as opponents would like, says David Barron of Chronicle.
The Colts suddenly have a lot of time to reflect and recuperate, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
Bruce Arians is back in Indianapolis and ready to interview for head coaching jobs, says Chappell.
To which I say: He’s really deserving of these shots at a head coaching job and I wish good things for him following such an improbable ride.
Ten things about the Colts that Phillip B. Wilson knows now.
“You can't take a punter when there's a potential franchise QB on the board, even if you think you already have one,” writes Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union. Frenette offers advice to the Jaguars next GM.
The Titans offense is going to be simplified for Jake Locker whether Dowell Loggains or someone else is coordinating, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Zach Brown is the Titans rookie of the year, says Tom Gower of Total Titans.
To which I say: I think I'd have to lean to Kendall Wright, who grew more steadily as opposed to in spurts.
