Please with the two names comment. Lots of the most talented WRs stick around into the 35-36 range and beyond. It is the less talented players who get bounced out of the league. The overall numbers mean jack when you are discussing the elite of a position. But if you want to play a numbers game lets look at 5+ time pro-bowl WRs and see how many of them were getting bounced before their mid-thirties.

The numbers do mean something but if you want to ignore them because of homerism that's fine. AJ isn't elite now and if you think it's automatic that he will stay highly productive into is mid to late thirties you are kidding yourself

Now you are just looking foolish. AJ isn't elite now? - (which missed the entire point of the comment unless you are denying AJ was ever elite). A grand total of one WR beat him this year - LOL, while on a run first team with a barely competent QB. Oh well, I guess there are lots of Texans homers among the coaches and players in the NFL. We're talking 4-5 years here, not decades.

PS - I said nothing about automatic. Clearly injury could be a problem.

Ummmm not elite anymore ? For real dude....He had nearly 1600 yards this season with a running back who nearly gained 1600 yards as well. I mean what is elite to you if he isnt ?

It sucks that Andre is in such an exclusive class that there aren't many examples to demonstrate what he's capable of.

The price you pay for being elite.

Well I would have to adjust his "elite" numbers slightly for the extra half game is played this year. I dont think he is as dominating as he was and part of his numbers comes from the fact that the texans dont have any other good wr. For the Texans sake I hope he does have 4-5 more good years in the tank but as I said I think its very optmistic

Part of the reason they arent many examples is that guys in general dont continue to excel in their mid to late 30ss couple that with the even smaller number of people with this subset of talent
