RTC: How Pats prepare Brady for Watt

Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

Tom Brady and the Patriots are going to great lengths to prepare for the Texans, says Reid Laymance of the Houston Chronicle.

To which I say: I wonder if some Titans coaches are saying, “Hey, we should have done that” upon hearing how the Patriots prepare to avoid guys who bat down a lot of passes.

J.J. Watt got credit for an additional sack against Tennessee, says John McClain of the Chronicle.

The Texans got into the holiday spirit. Here’s a video from the Chronicle.

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck is able to spread the ball around when he needs to, which makes the offense hard to stop, says Phillip B. Wilson.

To which I say: It's big that dependable alternatives to Reggie Wayne have emerged for Luck and the Colts.

Tom Zbikowski and Donald Brown won’t play Sunday against the Titans, says Phil Richards of the Star.

Donnie Avery is making the most of his touches, says Wilson.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars expect big pressure on Chad Henne from the Jets, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Tim Tebow will back up Mark Sanchez Sunday in Jacksonville if Tebow is healthy enough, says Vito Stellino of the Times-Union.

After a lackluster start, Justin Blackmon appears to be taking things more seriously, says Matt Williamson in his weekly Rookie Watch.

There’s going to be a flash mob outside EverBank Field before Sunday’s game. There is a Tim Tebow hook, of course. Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country breaks it down.

To which I say: Eesh.

Notes out of Wednesday from John Oehser of the team website.

Tennessee Titans

Titans at Colts is underachievers vs. overachievers, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

A look at guys who’ve got expiring contracts after this season, from Andrew Strickert of Total Titans.

The Titans have now placed four of the five guys they had as starting offensive linemen in the preseason on injured reserve, says John Glennon.

To which I say: This is sure to be atop the list of things Mike Munchak points out to Bud Adams after the season. To which Adams should say, "Losing Eugene Amano and Leroy Harris shouldn't be death blows, Mike."

Jake Locker stands by what he told Texans defensive lineman Antonio Smith after the game about what the Titans thought was a dirty hit on Fernando Velasco, says Wyatt.
