Can they make them in a different colors, possibly depicting a closed up mouth or something ? :)

This picture shows the exact reason AJ drops allot of balls. He's catching it against his chest.

Yeah his hands are facing his body like a punt returner not opened up to the ball like they are supposed to. I still think he is one of the best in the league though.

Too many guys are catching the ball this way. When they are young, they should be taught to use their hands. That is the proper technique.

If you look at WRs around the league, this technique is all over the place.

The great WRs in the NFL catch the ball with their fingers, not their chest.

I have seen him catch balls like that but more often than not he catches it in his arms or in his chest.

If he can get rid of that habit then he will be the BEST WR in the NFL.

Can they really call the leading receiver in the NFL in both catches and yards a "sleeper" pick for the Pro Bowl? Great pic though, he has some crazy jumping ability.

Yea cuz he plays for the Texans.

How many people outside of Texas do you think know how well AJ is playin this year?

Good question. From an article asking why people follow TO and Chad Johnson:


Compare these two to other receivers:

Owens has 44 receptions, 558 yards and six touchdowns.
Chad Johnson has 40 receptions for 443 yards and two touchdowns.
Andre Johnson of the Texans has caught 65 passes for 752 yards and four touchdowns.
Reggie Wayne of the Colts has amassed 732 yards and five scores.
Marques Colston of the Saints has scored seven touchdowns with 700 yards and 44 receptions.
The Cardinals' Anquan Boldin stars for a team that has only won one game, but he continues to put up impressive statistics with 48 receptions for 608 yards.

The media will continue to follow Chad Johnson & TO until they shut up.

The media loves controversy. That is what makes them money.

They dont want to talk about AJ leading the league in catches & yds. They wanna talk about what Chad & TO do off the field.

I would like to point out that last week AJ did use his hands and did not let every ball get to his body. Yes I was looking at that, because I made those same statements after AJ let the ball get intercepted on Sage's first pass when Carr was benched. So maybe the coaches saw it and made a suggestion. Of course I find it ironic that the change happened after a Rosenfeld INT, and not after AJ did the same thing for an INT not two weeks prior to that from Carr.

The other pick, I assume you are talking about the Miami one, was not about his hands. He caught it up high and the corner just took it from him. The catch was good, but it wasnt all that secure. But he has had some problems letting the ball get into his body, which is why he is so good at jump balls, he can jump and extend his arms like very few can.

Wow I agree about the hands, and where are his eyes????

This doesn't really involve his All-Pro's picks, but what exactly does Dr. Z do? He predicts about 8 games a week in a column that takes up half the page and he's the one that predicts how every team will do (he predicted Miami to go to the Super Bowl). I do enjoy watching his "Z Says, She Says" every week on SI.com because Brooklyn Decker is amazingly hot, but I think Dr. Z is overrated. Peter King is better.

I guess that depends on how long you have been plugged up or how far the next gas station is if it's the other.

I guess I would disagree. I actually like Peter King and he actually writes article over football. All Dr. Z seems to do is have his short column and a mailbag once a week. Peter King is more knowledgable in my opinion and I respect his opinion. I don't really care much for Dr. Z though. Just look at his predictions every week. He seems to predict about 3 or 4 upsets. I could do a better job at it.

We made a pretty strong showing on Pro Football Weekly.

Week Nine ROY Meter
#5. Texans LB DeMeco Ryans
Season stats: 73 tackles (58 solo, 15 assists), 2˝ sacks, one pass defended
Week Nine stats: 10 tackles (eight solo, two assists), one sack
Last week’s ranking: 8
Stock: RISING
Ryans’ candidacy was lacking those signature big plays, but suddenly, the second-rounder has added 2˝ sacks in his last five outings. Perhaps just as important to his chances is the quiet improvement the Texans have made on the defensive side of the ball. In two of the last three weeks, they have effectively slowed down the Jags and the Giants.

Honorable mention
Texans DE Mario Williams: 4˝ sacks in his last five games.
Texans TE Owen Daniels: Tied for second among rookies in TDs.

Best of the rest
Texans RB Wali Lundy
Texans OT Charles Spencer
