Default Re: Johnson.....When Healthy..

The only receiver that I think is definitely better is Randy Moss. T.O. has all the stats, but he doesn't have good hands. He's just a freak athelete who is probably the best in the league at running after the catch.

Maybe Steve Smith. I thought maybe Marvin Harrison, but he's just not as explosive as AJ. I'd put AJ in the top 5 but after Moss I can't think of a WR who I immediately think in my mind is better.

He's easily our best athlete and what makes him so great is he makes a big play or scores and just hands the ball to the ref..... no dancing, prancing, etc....just back to the huddle for the next play. He's a PROFESSIONAL, something most of these other receivers know nothing about.

If he hadnt been hurt, he would be right in the mix with T.O and Moss in TD catches. I know thats tricky footing to walk in, but he has 4 tds in three games. Averaged out, that comes to around 12 TD catches. Thats pretty damn good. He is definatly a top 5 if not top 3 WR. He is one of the best, period.

Two-time Pro-Bowler. He is getting recognition.

Need to reproject there. 4 TD's in 3 games translates to almost 22 over a season.

Dating to last season, the Texans are 7-5 in their last 12 games, including 5-0 when Andre Johnson starts.

During that stretch, the only AFC teams with better records than the Texans are New England (12-0), Indianapolis (9-3) and Pittsburgh (8-4).

The only knock on AJ in years past was his hands. This year, he hasn't dropped any key receptions. Granted, it's been limited action, but he's been money. Right now, irrespective of career numbers, there isn't a WR in the NFL I'd take over AJ.

Yup, but he worked a lot on them and it seems to have paid off. As you said, he has been money so far this year.

You just can't look at stats. Look at who the WRs have throwing to them. WR productivity ebbs and flows depending on how solid the QB play is....

Randy Moss
- Excelled with pre-injury Dante Culpepper
- Sucked with the QB trash out in Oakland
- Record-breaking pace with Tom Brady

Marvin Harrison
- Spent most of his career with Peyton. No doubt he and Peyton click. Legend has it Harrison was good before Peyton was drafted. But no one remembers back that far.

Terrell Owens
- Got on the map while playing with HoFer Steve Young. Some success with Jeff Garcia but soon wore out his welcome in SF.
- Did well in Philly with Donovan McNabb until his inner drama-queen emerged ...again.
- Is doing well, this year, with Tony Romo & Wade Phillips in dallas. As someone else said, his hands are B-/C+. But when he does make the catch, watch out. He makes his living on YAC stats

Andre Johnson
- Excels despite being paired with a bust (that's right, I said it) and "an unproven back-up" (according to all the preseason talking heads, we paid too much for Matt Schaub)
- IMO, Schaub-to-Johnson will become a household phrase if these two can stay healthy for the next 6-8 years. *burp* (sorry, I'm full of KoolAde)
- Someone on the NFLN (I think it was that "Sit 'em/Start 'em" guy) said today that AJ would be on pace to have a 1900/2000 yd season had he (and Schaub) been healthy all year.

Chad Johnson/Steve Smith
- When their main QBs (Delhomme & Palmer, respectively) are healthy, they excel. When their main guys are out, they suffer.
- Notice that Steve Smith never seemed to be "open" when DC was under center. Is that Steve Smith.'s fault..?
- Next year, rumor has it, we may see Chad Johnson with a different uni on. Wouldn't it be interesting if he ended up h....
