John McClain is one of the legend of the football writing business and I was honored he spent a few minutes on the phone with me Wednesday evening. On the call he discusses:
- Circumstances surrounding the Houston Oilers leaving Houston for Nashville and how an NFL franchise ultimately returned
- Similar Texas demeanors of head coaches Gary Kubiak and Lovie Smith
- Influence of Wade Phillips on the Texans organization
- Why Danieal Manning has thrived in a new city, new system
- Houston's liability in the middle of their run defense
- Brian Urlacher's Hall of Fame credentials (he's a voter with influence)
- How a longtime NFL writer ends up with a side career acting in Hollywood pictures
Note II: There WILL be a picks contest bonus tonight. It should go live late afternoon.
