Default The Future of Andre Johnson...

After a down season - plagued by injuries and being forced into shorter routes by poor pass protection - what should we expect from Andre Johnson this year?

Many people call him the next rising star; one of the best in the league, a monster of a talent. Now, with a very good offensive-minded coach, Johnson needs to actually fulfill the things said about him (because none of it is a stretch). With a good off-season we should see Johnson return to the top of the NFL receivers list. What can AJ do to separate from the pack? Anyone remember this from training camp?...

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ne...php?PRKey=1825

I hope this actually comes to pass. Rice's off-season workouts are legendary, and those that join him in it have had huge seasons afterwards (Ricky Waters for one). Also, spending time with Carr working on timing would be a good idea as well.

With all the attention on Bush/Young/Trade down and staff signings I felt it was a good idea to switch gears. Thoughts?

Johnson's a beast and I cant wait to see how Kubiak will impact Johnson's role in this offense. I'm betting on him being one of the elites in the game in no time!

I think he'll be oustanding in a new system. He worked harder this off-season than he had at any other time and then was extremely disconcerted in the "pass it to the receiver at the line of scrimmage" offense we degenerated into.

He'll be ready.

He's going to have a monster year as one of the playmaking cornerstones of Kubiak's offensive schemes. It seemed to me that the whole team lacked any fire under Capers, AJ included. I have no doubt that new blood and leadership will inspire many of these players to realize their true potential.

I can't wait to see it!

We still need a 2nd threat. What The Seahawks did to Smith is what AJ has been facing his career.

I am hoping Joppru will finally come out of IR and prove to be a credible threat. If the team does not think that is plausible, maybe they will draft a TE that can help him out. UT's Dave Thomas, anyone?

Dave Thomas would be a nice addition if he was available on the second day.

I have been on that wagon since the beginning of the season.

2nd threats as I see it if Bush is drafted; Mathis even if he can only hang on to a pass 50% of time, DD out of back field, Bush on a swing pass in flat, Gafney or Armstrong from the slot, and even though I don't like 'em maybe we will have a tight end that catches 3-5 passes a game.

I hope they use Mathis more. If you ask me, he's just as much a talent as Bush.

AJ is a beast. As for a number 2, I also think Mathis should get a chance.

Get use to seeing them! TEs are a big part of Kubes offensive.

Great! That means our defense will also benefit because they'll practice covering them!

As far as kick returning is concerned, Mathis is better than Bush. He has already made the probowl at the NFL level returning kicks. Reggie Bush hasn't, therefore he can't be considered as good.
