Let's zip around the division, shall we?

Houston Texans

  • Texans owner Bob McNair is optimistic, but losing some patience, writes Megan Manfull. While he said the team will evaluate everyone after the season, his comments included this: "If we have a chance to upgrade our coaches, will we do that? Yes. We'll always do that."

  • McNair may know Kubiak isn't the right guy, blogs Richard Justice.

  • Antwaun Molden could get some time on defense soon, says Manfull. A young guy getting an opportunity in the second half of a not-so-good season. Hmmm, I wonder what that means.

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Mike Peterson feels like he's being phased out, while Jack Del Rio won't detail the plan for the linebacker, writes Michael C. Wright.

  • Fred Taylor laughed at the concept of a "last stand," but Sunday's game against the Titans may be just that, writes Jim Wyatt.

  • Better health has helped produce better play in the secondary, according to Wright.
