When the Houston Oilers acquired Curley Culp from Kansas City in '74, they had their usual 1-5 record. Since Culp's arrival, Houston has won 16 games and lost only six. At 6'1" and 265 pounds. Culp plays the punishing nose position in the middle of Houston's three-man line. He is always blocked by at least two linemen but despite this unfriendly attention, he led the Oilers with 11� sacks last season. Culp sat out most of Houston's preseason schedule because of a bruised tailbone. Without their leader, the Oilers had an 0-6 record. So if the Oilers hope to make the playoffs, Culp had better get his tail back in there.
