Jones-Drew hopes to glean secrets from Texans coaches

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 25, 2012 – 10:53 pm

HONOLULU — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2011, is playing in his third consecutive Pro Bowl. It’s the first one in which he’s being coached by a division rival.

“Obviously, being around the Texans’ coaching staff is nice to learn their playbooks and their scheme so I can take it back to Jacksonville and help us,” Jones-Drew said with a smile after Wednesday’s AFC practice at Kapolei High School. “That’ll be great.”

Joking aside, Jones-Drew said he knows a lot of the Texans’ coaches from the 2006 NFL Scouting Combine and other meetings over the years. The Texans are 11-9 all-time against the Jaguars, including a season sweep in 2011.

“That fierce (rivalry) stuff is during the season,” Jones-Drew said. “After that, it’s pretty much, hey – friendship type of deal. So it’s very nice. The guys you compete with – obviously, Coach (Wade) Phillips and his staff and the defense, I’ve gone against them a couple times. They’ve gotten the better of us, and to keep seeing ‘em and keep that competing is great.”
