All this crap going on right now is an example of what fans are like in Houston... or of Houston sports teams. I know that makes me look foolish for typing it out loud, but I truly believe that. Houston won't ever have a truly successful franchise because their fans don't know how to get behind it's team & it's players.

Jj Watt won't be staying here unless we pay him a shtload of money, way more than any one player should get... because he like all the other guys who come through are only playing for the money. They're not playing for you or me, because we act like this.

Maybe if he was a little more vocal & demanded more of his teammates on the field...

Unless he thought Smith should go & Kubiak should stay.

Well, Lucky proved my memory not to be so good. But I remember a time Schaub wasn't able to practice & Yates getting a lot of reps because of it helping him out. Or maybe because we didn't have a back up at that time... Lienart, I don't know.

Mike Florio is a shill. His latest is just blatant Texan bashing as is his usual M.O. towards this franchise.

I hope the Texans stand pat and tell Andre to play or retire. there are no other options.

Andre is hands down my favorite player. He's deserved so much and he's been a great football player to the team and off the field with his charity work and work in the community.

But a player is never above a team. And imo he's been unprofessional about the whole situation. People like my little son and his friends look up to Andre (we bought him the official Andre J jersey/autographed pictures in his room) and don't understand the situation.

While I still love the football player and will always support him, the situation needs to be solved. At this point, I hope he can stay but if he carries this attitude, I'm ready for the next generation of Texans football w/out AJ. Nothing can be worse than last season.

However many weeks and hundreds of posts into this drama, and the best I can muster is a shrug. AJ is a great player, no doubt. But with all that greatness, the team has won two playoff games ever. They've had more losing seasons with him than winning ones. He's just a WR.

And are Houstonians really that attached to the guy? I mean, he makes no bones about his heart being in Miami. And that's fine, but I reserve my "Earl/Dream/Bum" status for guys that have their heart here.

Default Re: Just got some disturbing news about A Johnson

Seriously, if AJ doesn't show up for this weeks "mandatory" mini-camp, he's not rapidly approaching persona non grata status for you ?
He remains our best WR, but he's no mental giant and without knowing the new system which he's missed learning because of his own decision to not attend any of the summer OTAs, he'll be way behind everybody else and not being a quick study he will struggle to catch up. Then he's going to be a distraction because he'll be frustrated and maybe even morose if he can't get the lions share of the snaps he's used to getting as our #1 WR.

I'd be surprised if it's "already blown", but it would make the 70K for not attending mini-camp pocket change.

Apparently TK was absent the LuvYaBlue era.

50,000 fans showing up for a rally to support a team that had just lost a game.

Houston fans will support a team of achievers, kinda frown on quitters though.

Anyone who doesn't think this team quit last year or that AJ has morphed into a quitter is not paying attention.

So in your eyes him deserting now is ok, because he did not desert back then? It makes it even worse in my eyes. Very few would have blamed him if he had left in FA after his first contract, but to stick all this time to only now decide to bail is nonsense. He hitched his wagon to the Texans long term and should have accepted that, lived up to his word and showed up at OTA's.

Now that he hasn't and has generated this drama when he could have handled it in the off season without any drama, he has displayed his true colors.

As a Marine, you do not leave your brothers behind. People you have bled in the trenches with battling with every year, especially for your own individual gain. From all appearances, this is exactly what Dre is doing. There is no defense for this kind of betrayal.

'Hey look at me everyone, I am a loyal, honorable man. I love my Texans and would never abandon them. Unless I don't get what I want, then I will take my ball and go home! GO Texans!'

I hope he retires and saves what little dignity he has left.

I can *kinda* see both sides of this argument. I know AJ wants to be on a winner. As to the bolded, yes, he has. And in return the best receiver in the team's history has been very well compensated as has been discussed in depth & detail. If he were here learning this new offense with his team he could be positioning himself to be on a winner right here. (I already know what's coming here;^) As far as being "allowed to pursue greener pastures elsewhere" I'm of the opinion, gut feeling only, that Bob McNair has given Rick Smith the green light to play hardball with AJ here so he remains a Texan for the duration of his career and he retires a Texan. The last part is not a supposition on my part, it's a quote I've heard from the horses mouth along with probably everyone else on this forum.

As to the underlined: See bolded in response above.

As you were...

AJ will be back. Whatever his attitude is when he gets back will be his own. And he'll play a lot because he's the best WR on the team. And he will catch a lot of passes because he's just like that, and that good, to be able to produce a high quality product for an organization he may not like, but currently works for.

I, for one, am not worried.
