wont take long if he does play 3-4 more years, and i think the texans have a great shot to win a SB by then. Plus he can still put up big numbers and i think he will eclipse 14 to 15 K by the time he retires, but he could play as long as Rice baring injuries and get way up there on the list.

I think he's lost it. I don't care what anyone says. He used to be able to stretch the field, he didn't yesterday, or any game this year.

He's a different receiver now, playing at that same All-Star level, but much different than the way he used to.

YAC.... that was another big thing for Andre. Other than the game winning TD catch & run, his YAC was down for the game.

He kept the chains moving, he kept getting open. But he's lost what made him special & found something else.

Nice! Repped. Haven't heard that jam in a long time, very fitting, they should have been bumping that in the locker room after the game.

Agreed

But, he's still a special player with an outside shot at the HOF. Cutting his hamstring is what made him lose what you're talking about. IMHO

I'm with you. But he's going to have to be a Super Bowl MVP before he gets a shot at the H.O.F.

I need the Doc to confirm this, the majority of males pass their prime around the age of 28 (???) so if you call that "lost it", that's fairly normal.

Obviously, there are deviations, but let's just call this the norm for AJ.
The next question is then "how much"?

On this, I'm thinking not much at all.
On the 45yd pass play, he beat triple-team downfield.

The LCB played the corner route; one safety helped bracketed him (this guy never bought the play fake.) The other safety was reading Schaub the whole time and saved the TD. If AJ runs any faster, he would overrun Schaub's throw.

I call that stretching the field, don't you think?

And he had blown by people several times. I think he did it twice in the Broncos game (on top of my head.)

I'll have to go back & look, but I believe those were double moves.

I don't think it's a negative, I think it's a good thing. Players come into the league with nothing but talent. The guys who last, who play well into their twilight years, it's because they've adapted & got smarter.

Heins Ward, Jerry Rice, & Rod Smith come to mind. Even Rod Smith the CB/Safety, they got better with age when their physical talents wavered, because they got smarter & won the mental aspect of the game.

Randy Moss is the only guy I can think of who played a long time because of his physical talents at WR...... but he was a freak from day one.

This was AJ's best game of his career though. I loved it! He broke his own records and won the game on a huge play that he took to the house. AJ will always be the man.

Totally agreed. Never bought into it either. Still the best WR in football, don't care what anyone says. Him and Calvin are clear 1 and 1a.

wow, it doesnt matter where this throw goes, it's going to get intercepted. the bears dont have a receiver who could be remotely considered open. that folks is blanket coverage with nothing but a simple man/2. if we could get our OLB's to pass rush, this is what will win playoff games.
