Default AJ Says he wants to return !

Gotta love AJ ! He will be the first texan to rep the franchise in the HOF. Hopefully we can get him a ring before he retires !

Just think what his numbers would have looked like with a legit starting qb instead of the trash the Texans have trotted out over the years.

I asked Johnson if next season will feel like starting over, and he said he won't know the answer to that until he sees what the Texans do at quarterback -- whether they bring in a rookie or a veteran.
Is he hinting at wanting a veteran QB next year?

Not like Andre would say anything different even if he wanted out of Houston. I totally believe his words are genuine, but for argument's sake even if he did want out he's under contract with the Texans through 2016.

He aint going anywhere.

Wasn't he in the top 5 quickest players to get to 900 receptions?

Five 100-reception seasons. Three 1,500-yard seasons.

One more season like this year and he is #7 All-Time in both receptions and yards. He would already be there had he not missed close to 1.5 seasons due to injuries.

Outside of the lack of TD's, there is not an individual stat that indicates his personal success has suffered greatly with Carr/Schaub.

Take out the 2007 and 2011 seasons where both AJ and Schaub missed significant playing time, and AJ's stats for the other five seasons they played together would have averaged 105 receptions and 1500 yards. That is a pretty damn good 5-year average.

He even managed a 100-reception season in Carr's last year.

If you would like to make the argument that the QB play kept AJ from experiencing team success, that is a different story that I would agree with.

You have to wonder with a Manning, Brady, Brees, etc. tossing the rock to him just how much higher those numbers might have been though. If he's "borderline" HOF now, might he have been "done deal" under those circumstances?

I'm a big Andre fan, he's going to the HOF, etc. but it would cost him too much money to leave Houston. Besides what would another team give up for him ? 5 years ago he would have been worth something on the open market, but not today as he's basically a "possession" receiver at this point in his career. Think
Antwan Bolton.

Exactly. His two options are Texans (get millions of $) or sit at home (get nuthin').

Marvin Harrison, currently #3 in receptions and #7 in receiving yards, spent 11 years of his 13-year career catching passes from Manning.

Andre is less than 200 receptions and 2,000 yards behind Harrison on the All-Time list. If he plays for two more years to get to 13 years, he stands an extremely good chance of surpassing Harrison in both areas.

If he plays for three more years and get 225 receptions and 3,000 yards (75/1,000 per season), he finishes #2 All-Time behind Jerry Rice.

I'm just not sure that you can say playing with Manning would have made him THAT much better, unless we were talking TD's. Same goes for Brady. They both spread the ball around and rely on the TE too much for there to be a dominant #1 receiver.

But he definitely would have won more games and been in Super Bowls, which is something he more than likely will not get here in Houston.

Yep. Lots of hand-wringing over nothing.

That being said, I can understand the confusion about team & player loyalty in this day and age. It is a rare thing to see in the modern NFL, especially among WRs.

My gut feeling is Watt will be the same way.

You've seemed to have fairly sound "gut feeling(s)" historically DB. I hope this is another.

I think Watt will stick around too. I think we'll offer a fairly lucrative deal to stay. He has grown roots in the Htown community too. Which can't hurt

True, but if this coaching/regime change turns into an apocalypse I could see him wanting to wear a cheese wedge. Don't want it to happen but stranger things have come to pass.
