Have a look at this...


Issue No. 2: Is it just me, or does Texans WR Andre Johnson look a lot like a player who just might end up leading the AFC in TD catches?

Some might say, 'Hey, no one's disputing Andre Johnson is good. So, why bring him up?'

Because I just don't get the feeling Johnson is getting as much respect as he deserves. He's on the cusp of some big, big games. All indications point to it: The Texans will be in their share of high-scoring games. QB David Carr is thriving in his third season in Chris Palmer's offense. And Johnson is gaining 20.9 yards per catch in four games.
At the moment, Johnson has 17 catches for 355 yards with two scores. His yards-per-catch average is tops in the AFC among receivers with at least 12 catches.

If you can pry him away from an RB-needy/trade-happy/desperate/crazy owner, do it. Johnson is quickly becoming one of the most difficult wideouts to cover in the NFL. The Raiders had a tough time with it in Week Four, and they don’t lack for talent at cornerback.

Johnson very well could have a breakout game vs. Minnesota on Sunday. The Vikings are near the bottom of the league in yards per pass play allowed. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if he scored more than once and racked up more than 125 receiving yards in what promises to be the day’s most high-scoring game.
