(on the team running more and throwing less in this game) "Well, that's fine; whatever we need to do to win. I told him (head coach Gary Kubiak) that myself when we were talking on the sidelines. I just told him, ‘Coach, whatever we need to do to win football games, then that's all I care about.'

- Andre Johnson after today's game

What a special player, the city of Houston is lucky to have this guy on its football team!!!

(on why they were having that discussion) "Receivers sometimes get frustrated because they don't get six, seven, eight balls a game. Today, I only had two. He came over and was like, ‘hey buddy, we're going to get the ball to you.' I just said, ‘Coach, you know I'm not worried about that. I just want to do whatever I need to do to help the team win games.' Because we went out and ran the ball forty-something times and I only had two catches, I'm not worried about that. I'm just excited about the win we got today."

That really stood out to me in the quotes as well. Such a fine fine player.

Oh yeah, and this one too:

"That's what I like about it. You have a bunch of guys that can make plays. We ran one play where I ran a post route, and when I ran the route, I just busted out laughing because O.D. (TE Owen Daniels) was just running across the field wide open. So we've got a lot of guys that can make plays for us. That's what's great about the offense."

I can see him turning and looking back as Open Daniels crosses over the middle in my replay. I gave a little chuckle myself!

They knew the Raiders offense was so bad that as long as we protected the football there was no way in hell we could lose this game. I credit the coachs for not even thinking of throwing it in the second half.
