Is that due to scheme or talent? Or combo of both?
Andre Johnson....1500 yards and 4TD's. Four. That's almost impossible.

Let me just say that when your head coach comes out in public and states that we are not going to throw the ball to Foster because we don't want to overwork him...and then you don't throw the ball to Foster....well, you aren't exactly the Patriots.
