Reading the coverage of the Texans...
The Houston Chronicle's Jerome Solomon took a look at how coaches become elite. Is Gary Kubiak a top-10 coach? Solomon answers no. But then he notes that statistics don't matter in coaching because you can't prove you can win the big one until you do.
Brian Cushing notes that his new contract was one that not many players get coming off a torn ACL, writes John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. The $55.6 million deal includes a $9 million signing bonus as part of $21 million in guarantees.
Ed Reed and Wade Smith are still question marks for the Texans for Monday night, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com.
Cushing praised Andre Johnson's willingness to restructure his contract, according to Mark Berman of Fox 26. It's a smart move by Johnson. The restructure doesn't change the money he makes, and it also helps his team's chances of future success.
