I was reading the past Q & A sessions from John McClain and decided to write to him and ask him a question on why if he is a writer for "Our" Houston Chronicle, why doesn't he cover more about "our" team and not the Titans and Cowboys.
Here is his response via email:
Thanks for writing.
I don't cover the Texans. Carlton Thompson and Joseph Duarte cover the Texans.
I still answer questions about them in my online column. I answer questions from everyone who writes, including Titans and Cowboys fans.
Last year, because the Cowboys did so well, I had to cover all eight road games, plus one home game and one playoff game. If they continue to win, I'll cover their road games again. We have a writer who resides in Dallas and covers home games.
I covered three Titans regular-season games, including the Texans game, and two playoff games.
Plus, the Titans are in the Texans' division, and they were 12-4. There's still a lot of interest in the Titans in the Houston area, according to our surveys.
Anyway, that's why I don't write much about the Texans.
Thanks again for writing. I'm going to use your e-mail in my next online column.
