    <p><em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em></p> <p>Pat Yasinskas over at the NFC South Blog had a good idea this week, so I am borrowing it.</p> <p>Who would have been a media darling this week for each of the AFC South teams had one of them made it to Tampa for Super Bowl XLIII today?</p> <p>In my opinion, these guys would have drawn crowds and rave reviews and qualified as the AFC South's 2008 top talkers:</p> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou" target="_new">Houston Texans</a>:</strong> <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9652" target="_new">Eric Winston</a> (bright, blunt and candid); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9684" target="_new">Owen Daniels</a> (smart, willing and exceptionally polite); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3578" target="_new">Chester Pitts</a> (a wonderful guy who's the O-line's chief spokesman, always a key guy for stories and info.)</p> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind" target="_new">Indianapolis Colts</a>:</strong> <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4811" target="_new">Gary Brackett</a> (thoughtful, willing, charming), <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2055" target="_new">Jeff Saturday</a> (can talk intelligently about anything), <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1428" target="_new">Peyton Manning</a> (his availability is too limited and he's too careful, but he earns a spot on a less-than-great talking team because if you hit him with the right question you can get great insight that an entire story can be built around.)</p> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac" target="_new">Jacksonville Jaguars</a>:</strong> <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1430" target="_new">Fred Taylor</a> (as candid as anyone in the division and maybe the league, an absolute superstar quote); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9646" target="_new">Maurice Jones-Drew</a> (seems to really enjoy give and take with questioners); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2636" target="_new">Reggie Hayward</a> (a favorite with the locals who has an opinion on everything.)</p> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ten" target="_new">Tennessee Titans</a>:</strong> <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2582" target="_new">Kyle Vanden Bosch</a> (sincerely interested in helping a story); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2161" target="_new">Keith Bulluck</a> (doesn't hold anything back); <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=602" target="_new">Kevin Mawae</a> (won't often stray from the company line, but can provide stories and context on just about anything.)</p>
