AFC South: Kenny Pettway

Posted by's Paul Kuharsky

The great thing about the mailbag? Well, there are too many to discuss here, but it is open 24/7/365.

Please join me for an AFC South chat today at 3 p.m. ET. I can stay late if you like.

We can talk about any of this and more ...

If you're looking for anything from September or before, look for the archive links below and on the right.

Houston Texans

  • Andre Johnson provides a commanding voice for the Texans, says Richard Justice. I agree he should be getting the ball more, but I'd prefer commanding hands right now. I'll look at what's going on with A.J. in a post later today.
  • Jerry Jones takes a shot at the Texans, and Bob McNair handles it gracefully.
  • Owen Daniels watches how Dallas Clark works, writes Megan Manfull.
  • Ahman Green could come off the bench behind Steve Slaton against the Colts for his first action of the season, according to John McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

  • The Colts want to get their skill people on the field and spread the ball around, writes Mike Chappell.
  • The offensive line the Colts envisioned for the start of the season could actually be on the field Sunday, says Phil Richards.
  • There is no T.O. on the Colts, where pass catchers worry about wins, not catches, according to  Justin. A. Cohn's story.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Kenny Pettway, who was with Richard Collier when he was shot, gets a new chance in Green Bay, where Tom Silverstein spoke with him.
  • Fred Taylor can reach 11,000 yards in the Jags' first regular-season prime-time game since 2001, writes Vito Stellino.
  • Jerry Porter has played one game and is already lamenting his lack of chances? "Who's made a big play when the ball ain't thrown to him? So throw the ball to me. I'll catch it. That's it." Michael C. Wright has the details.

Tennessee Titans

  • Vince Young was back in limited action at practice and Kerry Collins can't see moving forward as a backup when he gets to free agency after this season, according to Jim Wyatt.
  • Who should be the Titans quarterback in 2009? Wyatt asks for your opinion.
  • For those interested in former Titan Travis Henry's troubles, here are details from Denver.
  • The Titans' defense is the most impressive thing David Fleming has seen this season.

Pettway: 'We didn't do anything'

As a former member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, ESPN's Marcellus Wiley has some insight into how Jack Del Rio's team works.

As a friend and former teammate of Richard Collier and Kenny Pettway, he has a personal tie to the men who were shot at in a Riverside apartment parking lot early Tuesday morning.

Collier remains in critical condition in Shands Jacksonville Medical Center. Pettway, recently cut by the Jags, was unharmed and Wiley was able to check in on him.

"We didn't do anything, weren't trying to do anything, just sitting in the car ...they ran up on us and just start shooting ...they didn't try to rob us or anything," Pettway told Wiley, who writes for, a site that says it has the largest database of athlete-owned businesses indexed on the Web.

It's a blog entry worth reading on an interesting site.
