Maybe he could do some radio black and white commentary... :)

I'm not sure, but between this thread and another, I think AJ may be on Jim Rome... :thinking:


As far as color (or black and white) commentary, AJ has the personality of a rock. Which is great as far as I'm concerned. It's ALL about football for him.

It was that bad?

Personally, in ten years, I think we'll see Chester Pitts sitting behind a newsdesk. Sooner for Salaam.

It wasn't bad from a Texan fan point of view. But he does have that monotone voice that never changes pitch or hint at any kind of emotion. He also mumbles which doesn't help matters.

He did however choke back a big smile when asked his thoughts of whether or not he has the attitude of the Texans go as AJ goes. (meaning the W/L ratio from last year when he was out with his injury.)

He said no and tried to play it off but he couldn't help but to grin. You know deep down inside he was thinking Hell ya I carry this team.

Oh, he's always been a terrible, boring interview - but I'd rather have that than Ocho Psycho.

Whatever, he's quiet, he's dull - and he doesn't get in trouble with the law or otherwise... so I'm happy with him just the way he is.

I wasn't complaining, just making an observation.

I guess he could do color commentating sitting next to Bob Uecker.

AJ is about the only elite WR in the NFL who is neither a prima-donna, coach-killer, locker-room-tyrant, QB-berator, team-de-stabilizer nor out-and-out-buffoon. That's got to be worth something.

Here you go brakos, that line has rimshot written all over it. http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r65/ShowtimeN15580/Emoticons/rimshot.gif

I didn't get to see the interview damn it. I guess I can get a replay on espn.com?? I hate Rome but boring interview of not I'd like to see it. :thinking:

BTW, I can't keep it straight. Was Rome Beevis or Butthead back in the day? i know, i know http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r65/ShowtimeN15580/Emoticons/rimshot.gif

Deeds, not words.

I'm thinking AJ probably adheres to something along that line of thinking, just kind of the way he carries himself, or so it seems to me.

Agreed. Maybe throw Marvin Harrison in there as well.

I thought AJ did very well. It was nice to see some national coverage on our premier receiver. I know a lot of people don't like Rome because of his sarcastic nature, but he is consistent in telling it like it is. You may not like the way he presents it, but he is pretty straight foward.

thats actually what i like about him the most besides being good. his interviews are so interesting because he talks soooo slow and it's facinating to me. he's one of my favorites for sure.

its all about entertainment, he prefers to do his talking on the field as opposed to his friend Chad Johnson, oops "Ocho Cinco" who spends more time working on his next celebration move. In that sense AJ is a fan just like any of us who look forward to the ESPN highlights to see what the top performers do both on & off the field :splits:

Rome is a solid interviewer, one of the best actually & really likes Mario Williams along with AJ seeing the Texans as an upcoming NFL power. personally I hope it starts this weekend :cool:

I don't necessarily find Andre dull just because he's quiet, and I don't get a lot of enjoyment of watching the usual Mr. Personality blowhard acting the fool while saying nothing.

All I know is I'd prefer a player like Andre as a member of my community more than many, many others we could all probably name.

...no real news though; the 8-to-80 connection has to stay healthy and click like last year and Mario has to have another great year to save our secondary.

...we can always count on ESPN for in depth analysis.

We just went through 20 years of Biggio interviews, "one game at a time", "that's baseball" etc.

I'll take 12-15 years of monotone mumbling from AJ for a HOF career.

Yes, 2005. He hurt his knee and I believe he was out for half the season.
