If you didn't catch last night's episode of MCM Radio you can get it on iTunes or here.
Here's yet another edition of 'The coaching staff promising more playing time to younger guys who have exciting potential but then not doing it once the game starts.' Still, you keep hoping they're serious about getting more reps for Lavelle Hawkins, Jared Cook, Damian Williams. Using Javon Ringer, who has shown some big play flashes of his own, more could also save CJ's legs from undue abuse.
Cortland Finnegan plans to apologize to Andre Johnson before Sunday's game, regardless of if AJ feels the same way. I'd love to hear an apology that should basically go 'Hey AJ, sorry I pestered you to the point you basically committed criminal assault on national television. I hope I didn't dent your halo, jackass.'
Sen'Derrick Marks and Dave Ball could be ready to go on Sunday, which would add some much-needed depth to a defensive line unit that started the year as one of the deepest in the league, but has been reduced to a shallow pool of mediocrity lately as the injuries mount.
Eugene Amano may end-up getting a corrective surgery to fix his lingering problems with shoulder/neck stingers. No word yet on if there's a corrective surgery that will help fix his suck factor from this year.
I hope Kenny Britt torches Glover Quin all day long on Sunday, because he's talking a bit too much trash about a legit Pro Bowl corner back in this league for a guy who has been a key part of maybe the worst secondary in NFL history:
Cornerback Glover Quin said Finnegan’s style reflects desperation and a means of survival against talented receivers.
Kerry Collins isn't thinking about what he'll do after the season is over, but he does sound pretty open to staying in the league as a back-up. He's definitely not a starter, and I doubt he has any future here if the coaching staff changes over, but there are certainly some teams that could use him in a mentor-type role for the right kind of young QB.
I have a self-imposed prohibition against bringing up names of possible coaches for next year until there's legitimate movement on the subject from the team, but I thought this one was intriguing enough to pass along.
