"as long as we win, i'm OK with it" ... in response to potentially lower stats with a strong run game.

is there a major receiver in the past 20 years that you wouldnt outright laugh at if they made that statement?

andre johnson is the best receiver in the NFL because of what he does in the passing game. he's in a league of his own because he's entirely committed to that statement, as we saw today. if andre needs 1500 yards to help the texans win, that's what he'll do. if he needs 400 yards and lowering the boom on linebackers, that's what he'll do. it's about dang time that the nation woke up to AJ's talent, but i dont think they'll ever know how great he really is.

let's get that man into the playoffs so the world can see the humble, team first, and completely unstoppable monster that we call Andre Johnson. the goal for the Texans is the playoffs, not because anyone's selling themselves short, but because anyone with a lick of sense will get out of AJ's way when he cranks it to that playoff level.

edit: scoot's had a couple (is 20 a couple?) bourbons. :D

I don't like his attitude. Put him on the bench and see if he'll start acting like a primadonna. :-P

I honestly believe he re-ignited the entire team with his post-injury
performance. Hopped to the locker room, drank some Battle Red
Kool-Aid, and came out to rescue his team. Good game. Way
for the players to bail out their coach.

The only problem with that comparison is that AJ actually had a tangible hand in the comeback. Without that jumpball TD, we were toast.

Willis Reed showed up, hit a few shots then went to the bench.

... deserves a thread of his own. He put this team on his back and willed us to victory. I want the Texans to make the playoffs and win the Super Bowl not so I can enjoy it, but rather so AJ (and the other guys!) can finally receive the recognition and accolades he so unquestionably deserves.

Thank you for being your humble, hard-working, dominant, and inspiring self. You are a leader in every sense of the word. Thank you #80.

Every time I watch the Texans, AJ makes an unbelievable catch. I can't help myself, saying clearly and out loud, "Andre Mother F...ing Johnson. Best WR EVER!!!!".

Either I gotta problem or my blood runs BATTLE RED! Regardless, Andre Mother F....ing Johnson! Epic mancrush.

"They came and told me he was done. He had a pretty good ankle (injury). I think we were down by seven and they were fixing to kick a field goal at that time, so it didn't look good. We block the field goal. He had them re-tape him. He walked over to me and said 'I'm playing,"' Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He tells me he's playing, he's playing."


I hope he is really enjoying this success right now, no one deserves it more than him. I'll echo the earlier thoughts, its great to be able to literally be happier for that guy and the others on this team than you are for yourself. Are you kidding me with that catch? That's two 4th downs that wind up getting us a win (Miami).

He is beyond being the best in the league.

In regards to his ankle injury, he's going to have an MRI done tomorrow. Andre said that, he doesn't think its too bad. But we'll have to wait and see what "too bad" is. Hopefully, nothing that few days rest and some treatment can't fix. That guy is just a beast and would hate to loose him for the Cowboys game.

If they didn't already know(most people did), AJ is definitely the most dominant receiver in the league...i can't wait to see him get inducted into the Hall of Fame, i will probably need to go see that in person.

andre said after the game that he thinks it's nothing major and will have an MRI tomorrow. as for letting him play, i dont think anyone had a choice - AJ told kubiak he was going back in and that was that lol.

He is an absolute stud that willed his team to a win, while overcoming adversity under pressure and risk of further injury. He was one of many Texans that left everything on the field, but when a humble superstar defies logic, his actions demand reciprocity - thankfully, other Texans felt obliged on all sides. :texflag:

Even Revis described AJ as "BEAST" in the same interview he called
Moss a "slouch."

If anybody hears something on his MRI post ASAP, please. Keep every possible body part crossed until we hear positive results. He says it's probably minor, but we need the MRI to prove he's going to be good to go.

Did you gain them back when you saw him run back on??

Also, HUGE kudos to Shelley Smith, #74, for what looks like a game saving block. Someone on the left side lets their man through the line and he is coming fast at Schaub. Smith chips him just long enough to let schaub throw the ball uninhibited. Nice block Smith!!

Wade Smith had a pretty clutch block on 99 (Andre Carter), had he not made that block I think he would have got Schaub's ankle.

From HT.com, Mario said:

(on his reaction to Andre Johnson's touchdown) "I wanted to go out there again and get another (sack). Thereís not a better feeling, and I definitely want to say, you know, I appreciate the help from the fans behind our bench. It really meant a lot, talking all that noise. Itís great to have 92,000 (fans) shut up. Itís just one of those things, you go out there and play ball."

(on WR Andre Johnson's touchdown) "That catch, I mean, heís in the Pro Bowl right now. That was just a great catch. I cannot believe it. That whole crowd, they got quiet and we got crunk. It was definitely a change of momentum with Andre doing that."

And Andre said:
(on if he thought he was done for the game) ďI did. I actually did myself. I came in (to the locker room), like I said."

(on the trainers allowing him to return) "They were questioning me a lot of the sideline, but I was just determined. I was like, ĎMan, Iím good. Iím going to go back out there.í I was just going to go out there and take a chance on it. I was just going to go out there and see if I could continue playing. When I went out there and ran the first play, it felt fine. So I just kept playing."

Beast.

Andre Johnson finished the game with 12 catches for 158 yards and a touchdown.
It was his 32nd career 100-yard game and his 14th career game with 10 or more catches and 100 or more yards.

His 14 career 10-catch, 100-yard games are the second-most in NFL history. He is now one shy of Hall of Famer Jerry Riceís total.

Johnson became the 76th player in NFL history to reach 8,000 career receiving yards and the 50th player in NFL history to reach 600 receptions.

This has been said before, but I hope people really appreciate they are getting to witness an epic player. Particularly now that his facilitator Schaub is here.

Can't you just hear understated AJ as Matt got here? - "When we need it just throw me the ball. I'll go get it."

PS - there are less AJ threads now.

PPS - I sure am glad Leach didn't get called for taunting on that Arizona play.
