Reading the coverage ...
While Kareem Jackson made great strides, the Texans' defensive backfield gave up a lot of plays and yards, says Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.
With J.J. Watt and Antonio Smith up front, “defensive end was perhaps the Texans' strongest position and certainly the defense's strength,” says Ganguli.
Bruce Arians was the reason the Mike Wallace to Indy talk started, and Arians’ departure should also be the reason that it ends, says Josh Wilson of Stampede Blue.
To which I say: That’s a very good point. And Wilson also points out that T.Y. Hilton’s production is much like Wallace’s.
Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida-Times Union tracked Gus Bradley at the Senior Bowl. “I have this image that we’re going to be extremely tough and play with a lot of poise. That keeps popping into my mind -- guys that are passionate about the game.”
Coordinators Jedd Fisch and Bob Babich face tough challenges, but will feed off of Bradley’s energy, says O’Halloran.
The safeties might be the strongest group at the Senior Bowl, and that’s good for the Titans, says John Glennon of the Tennessean.
To which I say: Very interesting to look at the offensive numbers where he breaks down the differences in playtime when Chris Palmer was offensive coordinator and when Dowell Loggains took over.
