All the planets seemed to be aligned for the Houston Texans to finally take charge of the AFC South this season. Peyton Manning was injured, transforming to Colts from a contender to the worst team in the NFL. The Titans have played on valiantly with 36-year-old Matt Hasselback at quarterback and the ghost of Chris Johnson at running back. The Jaguars cut David Garrard before the season and are now living out the phrase "be careful what you wish for" with Blaine Gabbart under center. With quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Arian Foster, wide receiver Andre Johnson and defensive end...

Many who cover college football call the newly-named Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer a gentleman and a class act. And since I don't know him, I can't debate that, so I won't. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt there. Why wouldn't I? But over the last couple years, if there has been a prominent sports figure who has spoken out of both sides of...
Matt Leinart's return to the NFL lasted less than a half, and coach Gary Kubiak says the Texans will sign another quarterback this week. Perhaps even Brett Favre.

AJ Daulerio has pushed Deadspin into being arguably the largest and most important sports blog in the world. His crowning...
