He's a generalist that has a terrible feel for the Texans...often what he writes is completely off base.
As for these comments, I'm not sure how he can judge that from the games to date. The Texans haven't had to target AJ much because they've had so many leads, playing against bad offenses that they need to take few risks against. They are also not playing him as many snaps, working the new guys in.
So that combo of things means few needs to unleash AJ this season so far. There was a little bit in the Denver game, mostly because they were facing the Peyton, wanted to get some points on the board, maybe take a few more risks.
I haven't read the thread but I've been talking (way before this article) about not seeing the same player who explodes out of his breaks and can create space against just about any coverage. I am not seeing that old dominant player right now....not seeing the superstar. Just a good player. I see old 2011 Anquan Boldin out there. It may be the last leg injury but he's just not the same player in my eyes. Not yet at least...perhaps he's still recovering...donno. Everyone will decline and some guys decline faster than others (more suddenly). AJ could lose a step and still be good...but I don't see a superstar when I watch him in 2012 so far.
