Brandt picks Texans to win AFC South Gil Brandt, who I consider the Yoda of the NFL, came to practice today with Vic Carucci, the editor of NFL.com. Carucci and Brandt do a talk show on Sirius Radio. They're touring NFL camps. Brandt, who was the Cowboys' personnel director from 1960 through 1989 and has worked for the NFL since he was fired by Jerry Jones, made two predictions that stunned me. First, he said he believes the Texans will win the AFC South. After I picked myself up off the grass, I asked for another prediction. He said he loves linebacker Brian Cushing and defensive end Connor Barwin but believes cornerback Glover Quin, a fourth-round pick, will be one of the league's biggest surprises this season. Quin is running first team nickel cornerback behind Jacques Reeves and Fred Bennett. - JOHN McCLAIN Wow has any other major media guy had the balls to predict us winning the division? Heres to hoping hes right!
