Personally, I think Gaffney is a guy who will have a career close to Muhsin Muhammad. He was the Gaffney of his team in the sense that his own fans never really appreciated him until this season.

I was referring to this year. I mentioned guys who all had good seasons this year. If AJ got hurt I don't see Gafney doing half of what Muhammad did this season. 1400 yds and 16 TDs? Gafney will never put up those numbers. That's what the Texans should look for in a number 2. A guy who is good enough to step up and be the number 1 when needed. I think Mike Williams could be that guy. Gafney will always be a good 3rd option. I just don't know that he'll ever be good enough to effectively take the pressure off of AJ. He just doesn't have the size or strength. But that's my opinion.
