Default Andre Knows of Big Expectations - CBS

It's under the "Fantasy" section, but it's a good positive peice on AJ3000.

Andre knows of giant expectations in '08

I liked it, but I have an AJ jersey.

AJ is one of the few complete WRs in the game. Best comparison I have seen to him was when he was coming out in the draft I read someone call him "A young TO without the mouth."

He was a pro bowl WR with Carr at QB, Steve Smith disappeared with Carr under center. That tells you all you need to know about Andre Johnson and why we're lucky to have a player of his caliber. He's gonna be the 1st Texan in the HOF mark that down!!!

I think I like AJ's demeanor on and off the field. No mouth and all business. And he has a charity and never really gets into trouble. I think if everything goes decently at the QB position he will make whoever is throwing the ball look great if he's healthy for all 16 games. He could easily account for 1200 yards if he plays a whole season. Add that to anybody's yardage as a QB and they will look good I'm sure.

He's the consummate professional, which is kind of ironic seeing as he comes from the U.

I guess the only thing that can be said now is like once every few years Charlie Casserly is a genius with his first round pick.

But only every once in awhile.

Wasn't AJ drafted the same year that our two 2nd round picks were used on Tony Hollings and Bennie Joppru?

There, balance has been restored....

AJ aint getting a sniff of the HOF until we have playoff success and probably will have to play in, if not win, a Super Bowl. I love AJ but he aint even close to the HOF.

Of course he's not close to the HOF, its a PROJECTION for an under 30 player on our team to be the first HOF inductee in franchise history.

It's not just success in the playoffs he's going to have to string together more 1,000 plus seasons double digits in TDs.

Good news is he starts both streaks next year I am willing to bet.

At this stage in his career I think he is. But as someone already eluded to, it's a projection. If I were to draw comparisons of him demeanor wise, it would be another quiet, humble, all buisness type of HOF player... Barry Sanders. Now, I agree with the sentiment of the AJ not being there yet, as shortened carrears have cost great talent in the past from HOF consideration, but I do disagree with the playoff success and superbowl requirements... Barry is a shining example of not needing either.

AJ has never had double digit TDs and that is the reason he is not in the top group of fantasy WR. I would blame most of that on Carr knowing what we know now.

And last season he had 8 TDs in only 9 games, that is moving him into the top tier if he does it for an entire season.

FYI Joppru was the 2nd rounder and Hollings also joined the team in 2003, but Hollings 2nd round pick was from the 2004 draft.

I place Owens closer to Steve Smith than to AJ. Owens uses his athleticism to gain seperation but AJ is the complete Package and I agree AJ has better hands than Owens.

I think they called AJ a "T.O." without the mouth because both players are big, tall and fast.

Steve Smith is a short blazing phenomenon who's got freat hands, and a little bit of a mouth.

Honestly, I think all 3 have different enough abilities that you don't have to say one is the other and all that. They are all 3 pretty special.

Thats part of it. It also had to do with the fact that a young (the part b0ng left out) T.O. had questionalble hands as did AJ coming out of college. It was a very accurate comparison at the time.

If you guys want AJ on your fantasy team, don't join one with Texans fans.

And Vinny, just the thought of AJ not being on this team, and the Lions picking him instead gives me nightmares.
