Default AJ & Moulds

What are your thoughts on AJ & EMO's production/stats for this year are?
Who will have the better year?
Who will benefit from the other player the most?

-IMHO
I think Moulds will have to perform real well throughout the year of course! but he will have to play at his best, as i think most of his receptions will come at the beginning of the season.

Teams will still double the younger more talented AJ vs. the aging and regressing wideout in EMO, so Emo will have to make productive catches early on to make the opposing D to now either double up on Emo or just not doubleing AJ as much. With that, once they stop doubleteaming AJ as much, AJ must show us that he can get through coverage and make the plays that we expect of him. Of course, w/ getting Bush pretty much in the books, than that will help out a lot too!
- And if both Emo and Aj can play like that this season or better, than it's pretty much a PICK YOUR POISON for the opposing D-Fence

It's tough to say. I would have to say AJ benefits most. Moulds has produced big numbers every year despite being double covered alot. If defenses are forced to pay attention to Moulds then AJ will absolutely explode this season, dominating single coverage and running free in the secondary. If teams cotinue to double and triple cover AJ, Moulds will have a career year.

Hmm...I see them both gettin 800 + receiving yards...They better at least...

Also...I think AJ will benefit more from Moulds and I think there year will be about equal.

I think Moulds will end up getting more catches but Andre will end up getting more receiving yards and more TDs as he'll be more of the deep threat with Moulds on the shorter routes, hopefully Jerome Mathis will learn to be a real WR and we can get him in on more deep routes too, otherwise we're stuck with Walters as our #3 WR.

Based on how aggressivley they pursued him in free agency, Kubiak doesn't view that as a bad thing. I like the idea of having three big physical guys who can go up and fight for the ball. Add Putzier and that's alot of size at receiver.

I think BOTH will be fine. I really like this duo, both tall receivers will give the opposing DB's headache! I don't believe about him being too old to help this team. Usually, wideouts last a long time.

Id much rather have Walters be our #3 than Mathis. Mathis is a KR who is very raw at WR. All he gives you is speed with little to no hands. Can you say Bradford Jr.?

The bigger question is how will Carr be in the new scheme and will he have protection enough to make AJ and Moulds reach their potential

I think that Moulds will do more just for teaching the other recievers than he will on the field. But I think that he will have a productive year, as will AJ and #3?

HI, Bills Fan here just dropping in with a few words on Moulds. I find it slightly amusing that Moulds refused to take a pay cut with the Bills and then signed with you for a lot less than he was scheduled to make in Buffalo. Yet I believe he was getting frustrated in Buffalo with the revolving door at the QB position, so there probably was more to it than just $$$.

No offense, but the Texans aren't what anyone would call a successful team (neither has Buffalo been a number of years now too) and unless that O-Line (probably the worst in the league the past couple of years) is fixed, it could be more frustration for Eric this coming year.

Then there's the "character" issue. While Moulds may not be a responsible "parent", I don't think the Texans signed him for his parental skills anyway. What they did get was a WR who is very physical and one that possesses excellent hands. He still has enough speed to hurt teams as well, even if he's lost half a step or so. He also keeps himself in great shape so he very well could play all four years the Texans signed him for.

Buffalo has lost a high quality WR, but our loss was your gain and you got him at a very reasonable price (for the Texans that is). I wish Eric well.

Good luck this coming year.

Which is what our WR corp has lacked since the beginning. They never got vet leadership at the position and threw young WR and said learn. I think Moulds will have a big year, but if all he does is teach our guys how to be productive in the NFL, then he is worth it.
