Houston Texans Transcripts (1/7): Bill O'Brien, Brian Cushing, J.J. Watt, Vince Wilfork and more


Opening statement:
“Not much to update you on today.  I'd say Jadeveon Clowney is day-to-day.  He moved around a little bit today, and Nate Washington, same thing.  Had a good practice today, and open it up for questions.”
Talk about OLB Whitney Mercilus winning AFC Defensive Player of the Month. What’s his impact been? 
“Yeah, he's done a good job.  It's a combination of his own work ethic and his attitude and his work ethic in the weight room, on the practice field.  I think he's coached very well by (Linebackers Coach) Mike (Vrabel).  So he's done a good job for us.  He's one of our most improved players in the two years we’ve been here.  He deserves a lot of credit for that.”

How do you control playoff emotions do you want to control playoff emotions? 
“For the most part you treat it just like a normal game. There is some added emotion, added energy, added excitement and you need to harbor that and use it the right way and channel it to use it for positive and don't let it overwhelm you. Having been here and played in four playoff games now since I've been here, I think I've got a handle on how to do that. But I think for the most part you don't treat it a whole lot differently than the other game besides using the crowd's energy.”
