Reading the coverage: Week 16 was a gift

Houston Texans

Matt Schaub is a deserving Pro Bowler, says Jerome Solomon.

Indianapolis Colts

The spotlight falls on three big-time quarterbacks Sunday, writes Mike Chappell.

The Colts defense is gearing up to stop the run, says Phil Richards.

New York’s regular-season win was a gift, opines Bob Kravitz.

The Jets are upset about talk of their gift win in the first meeting against the Colts, says Phillip B. Wilson. I don’t remember anyone from the Colts saying much.

Peyton Manning is never going to beat anyone by himself, Lito Sheppard reminds Wilson.

The Jets are working the underdog angle, says Wilson.

If the Colts do make the Super Bowl, a pretty strong argument could be made that no team in NFL history ever has had an easier road to get there, says John Oehser. Very interesting stuff that people will surely use to unfairly discredit the Colts if they go on to win the AFC.

Oehser takes five questions and asks five.

Reggie Wayne is ready for Revis Island, says Tom James.

A reminder of who missed the regular-season game, from Chappell.

Tape shows the Jets couldn’t stop Manning. (Thanks to 18to88 for the link.)

A look back at the Colts’ last appearance in the AFC title game, from Jeremiah Johnson.

Austin Collie’s film-study habits have been noticed by the Colts, says Larry Hawley.

The teams played “out of type” last time and it could happen again, says Doug Farrar.

Of the remaining quarterbacks, Manning’s the easiest to trust and Mark Sanchez is on the other end of the list, says Clark Judge.

Jacksonville Jaguars

It looks like Joe Cullen is about to become a Jaguars assistant. Here’s my entry on it from Wednesday night, which includes a link to my news story. Me, me, me.

Michael C. Wright’s story about Cullen.

Jack Del Rio is deserving of the scrutiny, not the hate, says Gene Frenette.

No naming-rights deal is on the horizon for Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, says Vito Stellino.

Why Gene Smith needs a first-round home run, from Zoltan Paksa.

Tennessee Titans

Vince Young is a Pro Bowler again, says Jim Wyatt. (More self-referencing. Here’s my take.)

Kevin Mawae was among the NFLPA reps lobbying Congress, says Terry McCormick.

Kenny Britt’s company is worth questioning, says Jim Wyatt.
