Default Andre Johnson: ProBowl Game Thread


Quote:
HONOLULU - It’s been a few years since the University of Miami has basked in the national glory of the college football spotlight.

But it only takes a short glimpse at the respective Pro Bowl rosters this year to remember the influx of talent that matriculated through Coral Gables in the first half of this decade and beyond.

There are five former Hurricanes in the Aloha State this week to play in the NFL’s annual all-star showcase, and a sixth member, New York Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey, will not participate due to injury. Fortunately for the Texans, arguably the best player of the Miami bunch wears Battle Red and Deep Steel Blue every Sunday during the fall.

With his low-key demeanor and shy-guy persona, wide receiver Andre Johnson doesn’t fit the stereotypical Hurricanes mold. But don’t get it wrong: Johnson bleeds his school’s colors and could not be more proud to represent “The U” this Saturday in his second-career Pro Bowl.

“It’s something that we believe in a whole lot (at Miami),” Johnson said of continuing his school’s prolific football legacy. “Me and (Baltimore Ravens safety) Ed Reed were sitting by the pool the other night and he was like, ‘How many guys do we have here?’ We were sitting there trying to count. So it’s definitely something that we take pride in. And when we’re out on the field we just try to do the best that we can.”

One of Johnson’s New Year’s resolutions was to be more sociable. Whether or not he was kidding, Johnson could have trouble getting a word as he hangs out with characters such as Reed, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor and San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore. That’s not to mention lovable Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson, who hails from Miami but attended school elsewhere.

Default Pro Bowl-AJ representing!

Although I personally think the Pro Bowl should be abolished, I just watched Andre Johnson represent the team with a second place finish in the Fastest Man competition. Easily the tallest entry, AJ was quick off the line, but outraced by only one guy.

He's a very impressive combo of size & speed.

KAPOLEI, Hawaii - When you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. That applies to a team, or in the case of wide receiver Andre Johnson on Thursday, an individual.

And the Texans’ lone Pro Bowler was within a few tenths of a second from doing just that during the Best Hands segment of the 2007 Pro Bowl Skills Challenge at the picturesque Ihilani resort (watch the video here).

Unfortunately, the final contestant, Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson, delivered an impressive, yet controversial, time to claim first place and push Andre to third in the standings.

In total, eight players were timed running 80 combined vertical yards – 40 yards each way up and down the field – while moving through four different receiving stations with periodic obstacles in between them. The player that completed the course the fastest with the fewest dropped balls was crowned the winner.

The drill tested speed, hand-eye coordination and change of direction. After Packers wide receiver Donald Driver finished the drill in 16.5 seconds, Andre topped that with a time of 15.8 seconds to pace the field. Using his long, bursting strides, Andre barely broke a sweat despite the punishing heat.

Reggie Wayne not looking so good.

Hopefully Brees is ok, probably a sprain by the way he landed on his hand.
