It always cracks me up when they flash Paid Attendance 70,972 across the big screen, but you look around and at least a third of the seats stay empty all game.

Again, depending how the team is doing, I can see them saying he is out for alot longer.

Thanks for the report TC

Yep pretty much..I wonder why Kubiak said earlier in the week though that he was hopeful he was going to be able to play, yet now AJ sounds like he doesn't know when he can come back.

By the time he comes back, i'm sorry it may be too late. We are probably a 6-7 win team without him it sucks that we finally have a QB to throw him the ball and now he's hurt...sounds like our luck.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

my question is why did the Texans keep telling us that they think he will play when their Doctor pretty much told Johnson that he would miss nearly half the season?
Quote:
Johnson said he was told by Dr. Walter Lowe that rehabilitation on an injury as serious as his takes about six weeks. Johnson just completed four weeks, which means Johnson will likely miss at least two more weeks.

You need to drink more during the tailgate. By the time I get to my seats, the Stadium looks like there is about 140,000 people....

And that is my fear or concern or however you want to put it. I was hoping for .500 with maybe a leap, after seeing Week 1 and 2 to 9-7. It was best case scenario. I am not saying the other receivers can't make strides and get it done but it is purely a talent thing. If we hit a point and aren't hitting the above marks or are having troubles, why not let him rehab out the year?There is part of me that thinks it might be in the back of their head since they haven't been forthright so far.

If we had a better running game, and our D steps up, then AJ being gone would hurt us so much. Two bad those two things I mentioned hasn't happened for us yet.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

I thought Texans TV has the same thing in an interview with AJ that they put up today. Basically he was saying that the Doc says 4-6 weeks, and that means two more weeks. But as of right now he's just taking it day by day. (After he talked to the doc last Sat.)

It could be a cat and mouse game, and we just can know for sure.???

It's the responsibility of those receivers to help make touchdowns, though. The Texans are clearly moving the ball down the field. They do it with Schaub hitting his receivers. That the receivers clam up in the red zone is not the fault of the defense.

Walter and Davis are doing really well, better than I ever anticipated. I used to think that without AJ, the team was totally screwed. But that was when you had one-target Carr. Schaub does a great job of getting the ball to these guys, and they are making some outstanding plays. Given some time, I think the scores will start to come. It's something that just has to click, and it hasn't clicked yet. Once it does, the Texans will become very competitive.

I think what the Texans told us is what they were being told in the locker room. At least given what was said by Pittman in his HP articles.

Who/when said they thought Andre would play? I know Kubiak said he was hopeful that Andre would play, but did anyone say that he was ready to go?

just about every week we heard that Andre may be ready to go but the Chronicle kept saying...no, he isn't ready.

I think the Texans and the fans hope every week that he'll be ready to go. He was DTD two weeks ago, and he'll be DTD until he gets over this. Predicting when he gets the strength back in his leg and is ready to go is pretty hit or miss.

How can you be day to day two weeks ago when the doctor said he would miss around 4-6 weeks? It's not a huge issue...I just would rather the team tell us the truth than telling us what we want to hear and finding out the people who report on the team are more credible than the Texans PR department.

The Texans have been saying they're hopeful for him to return each week..... well, they are hopeful he'll return each week. It's day-to-day because no one knows exactly when it's going to be strong enough for him to get on the field again. The Dr. told him 6 weeks was the recovery time at the outset, but that doesn't mean it will actually take 6 weeks. As long as there's a chance Andre could get better sooner, which there always is, I think you'll continue to see Kubiak saying he's hopeful Andre will return ASAP.

As far as the Chronicle having the story better than the Texans so far, I'm not quite sure how that works out but I don't really care either. We're hearing the story straight from the horses mouth from interviews with Andre, and he hasn't written himself off for the next two weeks.

So, if Dr. Lowe told A.J. that, then he told the team that. And if he told the team that, why didn't they just tell us that instead of blowing all this smoke up our asses every single week?

Yeah, a few days ago Kubes was saying "Everything is looking very very good, I am hopeful he'll practice this week and hopefully play."

Now I think everytime he says "I think he's on track." Kubes is basically saying the 6 weeks.

We just need to win the Tenn game without him. We play Tenn and if I am not mistaken San Diego(which may be a loss) so hopefully we can go to week nine 4-4 and not 3-5 going to week nine with a 4-4 than maybe we can beat the Raiders and AJ can come back in time...who knows our team could win the rest of our games with him, I think he has a HUGE impact on the team.
