In NFL news, Tony Dungy’s son James died a few days before Christmas. The Indianapolis Colts and Buccaneers teams are mourning the beloved Dungy family’s loss and many attended the funeral proceedings. Both in Tampa and Indianapolis, Dungy is considered a great man, who treated his players as equals and encouraged them to be good role models through their actions. James was often seen attending practices his father coached and was sometimes even mistaken for a player because of his size. James was often called a gentle giant and many have expressed he will be sorely missed.
There is no word on when Dungy will return to coaching but he has gone public thanking everyone for their support and expressing his belief that his son is in a better place now.

Jerome Mathis is headed for the Pro Bowl in his rookie year. It is amazing to think that it has only been a year because Mathis achieved a lot in that time. We won against the Arizona Cardinals and I thought that was a pretty exciting game for us. Our season ender with the San Francisco 49ers will be even more exhilarating due to the fact that the loser of that match up gets first dibs on Reggie Bush. He is the Heisman Trophy winner from the USC Trojans who are going to be three time national champions very soon.

Once again the Texans had a chance to win a very close game and fell apart trying. The Texans had eight penalties for 72 yards in the game. Our wide receivers couldn’t get any yards, but Domanick Davis had a season high 139 yards rushing and one touchdown. This wasn’t our worst game but it could have been so much better if we could have avoided the mistakes that cost us so many yards. The Titans special teams played better than ours and made some big plays for the victor. The chance we had to tie the game was foiled when Kris Brown kicked a 31-yard field goal far left, missing the uprights completely.

The Houston Texans played a reasonable game on Sunday against the Ravens. The score was close, 16-15, and our defense looked as good as it has all year. Inevitably the Ravens last minute power surge on offense made our defensive achievements of the game seem inadequate at best. We had the lead in the fourth quarter and it honestly looked like the Texans might win. In the final seconds the Ravens pulled off a field goal and we had no time for a comeback. So once again the Houston Texans fall victim to a fourth quarter change of fate.
