Looking back on Andre's 1st 6 games last season (before Carr ran into injury problems), Johnson had 31 catches for 466 yards. That translates over a 16 game schedule to 82 receptions & 1242 yards. Now that may seem like cherry-picking stats, but those were his 1st 6 games as a pro...logic would indicate that he would either improve or at least stay at that level of production had the other factors remained the same.

But things didn't remain the same, and AJ's numbers regressed. I think Andre was not only hurt by Carr's absense during games, but also on the practice field where they were beginning to develop chemistry. Another offseason and training camp and AJ & David's chemistry should be more enhanced and the numbers they put up at the start of the '03 season should be easily duplicated. And 80+ rec./1200+ yards are right around what Pro Bowl WR's put up.
