AJ is our clean-up hitter. He's strikes out/drops some passes, too many times and sometimes drops them in the clutch. But on the up side, he can knock it out of the park on any time, on any play if he's on the field.

Dropped passes?

How about a pass bouncing off his chest into dbs hands, leading to tenn scoring drive. Not much different to me than Carrs fumble. At least AJ wasn't being pounded in the back by a 300 lb. defensive lineman.

Andre has great stats, possibly leading to pro bowl?

Carr has great stats, but they are meaningless?

Guess AJ is throwing all those receptions to himself?

STATS, Inc. doesn't track drops very well and retracts assigned drops all the time. I have personally counted 6 on AJ this year. If you have the games on DVR, go back and count them. STATS, Inc. also does not assign a drop in situations where the ball hits the receiver in the hands at times, for reasons I have yet to determine. Suffice it to say that drops are not a reliably tracked statistic.

AJ's hands have been questionable at best this year. He'll make the highlight reel catches and then drop the easier ones. He gets lots of targets and makes some spectacular plays to atone for his mistakes, but I think most of us would prefer to see him catch the ball a little more reliably.

One of the things I've noticed since Moulds arrived. AJ never seems to make a catch look easy. With Moulds the ball just seems to land naturally in his hands, like "hey look, a ball!" It may take some time but I think AJ will get there.

The difference is that AJ responded with a series of some tough catches that culminated in a pretty sweet TD grab and put us back within 2 scores. Carr responded by fumbling again.

AJ does make some mistakes, but he recovers very well. If Im not mistaken, he is the most targeted receiver in the league and has a very high target to completion ratio. In regards to the drops, its probably more of a concentration thing, letting the ball get too far into his body. Hopefully this game, the first in which one of his mistakes has really cost the team, will get him to really focus on cathching every ball.

Where did you get that stat. He dropped 4 passes in just the Titans game alone. I love AJ but he has dropped passes since his days a UM. It is his biggest weakness.

Wrong. It's 4 drops for the season. Other receivers who have 4 or more drops this year thus far :

Reggie Wayne (4)
Terell Owens (4)
Randy Moss (4)
Steve Smith (7) - Fire him now!

AJ has been targeted most out of the group, and there are a few good WR's on there with less than that, for instance Torry Holt has 0 drops.

Drops are not a good thing but they are not indicative of suckiness.

Default Re: Congrats to AJ

AJ is having a spectacular season and he certainly should be in the pro bowl. Now will he be in the game, I'm not sure. It really depends on if ESPN starts talking about some of his nice catches now or if they start talking about him only after he is snubbed on the ballot. I even think that DC should have a shot at going because besides Peyton and Brady the AFC doens't really have another consistently nominated QB now that Green is out. It's like the NFC you know Donovan and Vick will be elected and then fans will just go by name.

If there's one thing I learned about the Pro Bowl it's that a name means everything and stats mean very little.

AFC receivers will probably be: Harrison, C. Johnson, and Ward or Wayne. Andre might get on as a back up though IMO he should be a starter

QBs will probably be: Peyton, Brady, and Rivers or Plummer. Jake only because of name. Though I think VY has a better chance of being in the Pro Bowl then DC only because most casual fans think of Houston as nothing more than a joke.

He should definately be a starter if he keeps this up. C. Johnson only has 2 TD's on the season while Ward isnt doing that much. Obvioulsy AJ is leading the league, not just the AFC in yards and catches and he is not doing too bad in TD's. Also, other then the Pats and Giants, we dont play that many good defenses, so his numbers could actually go up.

Drops are a little subjective. Does it count as a drop if he gets one hand on the ball and gets hit by a corner? What if a corner breaks it up? He had two sure fire drops against the Titans (the pick and a sliding drop on an out pattern). Also, there were a bunch of balls thrown his way against the Cowboys that could be called drops or good defensive plays. While I dont think this is a huge problem, it is somehting he has to correct and Im pretty sure its more then 4 on the season.

Well yeah I think he should definitly be a starter. I know that right now he should be ahead of C. Johnson, but the point was that he is not a huge name player across the country, doens't get on ESPN enough, and plays for Houston. All of which will take votes away from the common fans.

And a slight edit, it's not a toss up between Ward and Wayne, it's a toss up between Ward and Moss, forgot he was in the AFC. Haven't watched a Raiders game in years.
