Perhaps wearing that shirt w/o barfing is confirmation that he's no longer susceptible to nausea...
Then again, with those colors how can one tell...?

5 catches, 66 yards -- Deandre Hopkins after 1 game.
6 catches, 65 yards -- Keshawn Martin after 6 games of rookie season.
6 catches, 151 yards -- Lestar Jean, after entire 2012 season.

If Hopkins continues to produce like this, he could have a monster year.

That's not right.

Maybe you're trying to be funny. Sure we had high hopes that LeStar & KeShawn could beat out KDub for that roster spot. But we shouldn't be comparing Hopkins to them.

That's like looking at every Texans' milestone in relation to the Chiefs or the Lions... or Buffalo. We've turned that corner & should be comparing ourselves to New England, Pittsburgh, & Dallas (yes..... Dallas).

It looked a bit shaky at first, but when Hopkins came through with that low catch, I'm sure Schaub feels much more confident going to him.

You naillin it on the QB confidence and that is why Hopkins hands will make up for lack of blazing speed. MS zeroes in on AJ and OD who hang onto the ball. IMO, we have two more option for MS now including Cierre Wood who will eventually get on field and earn his confidence as a receiving RB. Sure I am crazy but wait and see.

I don't see why we shouldn't compare them to DeAndre.

One of my points was that DeAndre is already producing. Granted, it's one game but after that one game, he's already looking the way you want a first rounder to look. I think it's interesting that he already has as almost as many catches as Keshawn and Lestar did last year.

One of my other points is that it looks like he's already a part of this offense and that Schaub is trusting him and finding him.

ANOTHER one of my points is... did you see the Lestar Jean ypc? Holy crap!

Of course it's not a fair comparison. Deandre is a 1st round pick. He's EXPECTED to contribute. He's EXPECTED to be a star. That's what teams expect from 1st rounders.

Keshawn was a lower draft pick. He was forced into a role last year due to lack of depth.

I loved that jump ball thrown at him in the end zone when he was single covered, even though it went incomplete. But as time goes, DeAndre is going to learn how to either catch that ball more often or cause a PI call.

Yeah, we can compare them to Hopkins. But we should be comparing Hopkins to JulioJones, Aj Green, Dez Bryant, or Victor Cruz.

Saying he's better than Keyshawn & LeStar isn't really saying a lot... that's all I'm saying.

I think that's because of Schaub/Kubiak on any other team, these guys would get a lot more opportunities.

He's a play-maker. If we get him on the field more often & get him the ball 1 or 2 times every two or three weeks, defenses will have to pay attention to him.

That's like comparing a Bentley to a Honda to a Pinto. You can't really compare a legitimately talented wide out projected as the top 1 or 2 in the draft with backups and scrubs like Martin and Jean. Speaking of Jean by the way, how the hell is this garbage player not cut yet?

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

I understand the comparison. It shows how involved Hopkins is in the offense early on. 5 catches in the first game by a rookie in Kubiak's offense shows trust and an expectation to produce. The only thing holding Hopkins back is a lack of confidence in him by the coaching staff or Schaub. Things look good so far.

In regards to that long pass, Hopkins has the ability to make that catch, even one handed. I think we will see more of that as teams continue to focus on AJ, especially over the top.

Bingo. There were predictions Hopkins wouldn't get targeted as much as Walter last year and so would end up with 35 rec. for 350 or so yds. Playing a partial game after missing significant practice he was already much more involved than that.

I'm very glad we got this guy! Excellent first NFL game debut, not including pre season! Kube's offense is not the easiest to master right away. This kid can be really special sooner not later. Seems like he has high FB IQ. I like his diving catch for 30yds(?). If he continues to improve, Andre can have a MONSTER season!

The "prediction" was based on the Texans comfortable ahead in games against a weak opponent like the Chargers.

That didn't happen and so the Texans had to open up their game plan.
How many times were Hopkins targeted in the first half and how many yards did he get?

If it were the Texans that led 21-7 at half time, how many times do you realistically think that Schaub would put the ball up in the second half?
