Reading the coverage: Tice in Bears' mix

Houston Texans

GM Rick Smith takes more of a spotlight in the offseason, says John McClain.

Rare comment from Alex Gibbs, through Mark Berman.

It’s not as if Gibbs turned the Texans into a great running team, says Richard Justice.

Continuity is the key to the Rick Dennison hire, says McClain.

The top 10 draft prospects according to Lance Zierlein.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts bring the league’s worst rushing offense into the playoffs, says Mike Chappell.

Robert Mathis won’t watch “The Blind Side,” says Phil Richards.

Pierre Garcon is worrying about family in Haiti, says Richards. You can follow Garcon on Twitter at @ShowTimeP85.

Judy Battista on rest versus rust.

Don Banks ranks the Colts’ rest debate as the top storyline of divisional weekend.

Colts newcomers are ready for their first second season, says Phillip B. Wilson.

The Colts have a 76 percent chance of beating the Ravens, says Brian Burke.

A game day in the life of Colts fans -- a video from the Star.

John Oehser’s seven-point preview of Ravens-Colts.

There is a good vibe coming off the bye, says Oehser.

Reggie Wayne and Ed Reed remain the closest of friends even though Reed killed Wayne’s pet snake, says Tom James.

Bob Kravitz considers Matt Stover’s story.

Stover’s ready to kick against the team he was part of forever, says James.

Maryland’s governor is goading Indiana’s over a Ravens-Colts bet.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Mike Tice interviewed with the Bears, perhaps for the offensive coordinator post, says Michael C. Wright.

Jack Del Rio said he never got a contract offer from USC, says Wright. JDR should have said that at the podium beside Wayne Weaver at a press conference earlier this week, instead of pulling a no-show.

Ticket sales will be the measure for the Jaguars, says Vic Ketchman.

We’ve lost our ability to live with mistakes, says Ketchman.

Weaver basically asked fans to trust him, says Brian Fullford.

Defense is the priority in rebuilding, says Adam Stites.

The ticket-sale movement is under way.

Tennessee Titans

Chris Johnson is the NFL’s offensive player of the year, says Jim Wyatt.

Matching 2009 may be tough for Johnson as the Titans look to get another back some carries, says Gary Estwick.

The Titans added several players including linebacker Pago Togafau, a former Cardinal, says Wyatt.

Donnie Nickey is heading for free agency again, says Terry McCormick.

Wyatt talked to LenDale White and Albert Haynesworth about Lane Kiffin.
