Its just like when Colston freed up Henderson. Without Colston, Henderson would never have been that open ni the end zone

Who needs RedZone scores when you can hit them for 70+ yards away.

That was his second 70 yard TD catch in the three games he has played.

When Andre is back, we're not going back to week 1 and 2 ball. We've had a LOT of problems develop since then (exactly what and why is a whole other thread). We've had OD over the middle, and Walter and Davis stepping up to stretch the field.

Yes, AJ is a top NFL wide receiver. Yes, I miss him.

No, having him back will not "fix" our current woes.
You still sure about that?

And how sweet that last one was!! Brought tears to my old eyes!! AJ's presence makes everyone better, so it seams. We still have some missing pieces to the puzzle, but, having AJ back definitely made the puzzle look more complete.

Well, if they hit those consistently, then I don't care about the red zone. Unfortunately, if they throw a long TD to AJ every single game, and then kick four FGs, they're still going to lose a lot more than they should. As I said, I am playing Devil's Advocate to an extent, though I have been annoyed at the red zone offense most of the year. AJ definitely helps things out, there's no doubt.

The only thing that upset me about yesterday's game was the fact that AJ should have had two more long TDs where he was WIDE OPEN and Schaub never looked his way. GAH!!!

AJ is the man.

I guess its too bad thats already taken.

But, just for fun:
The texans are undefeated with AJ
Schaub threw 2 TD passes with AJ gone, and in his first game back, already matched that total
AJ has 3 100+ yard games with TDs in each

He is the difference maker
Dangit..I like "The Answer" for AJ.

That's incredible.
With AJ: 3-0 (5 Td's and 1 Int's, 4 Td's to AJ)
Without AJ: 2-5 (2Td's and 6 Int's)

I'd say he missed AJ just a lil!

his second TD against Carolina was 9 yards I think, thus in the red zone. But your point is appreciated, red zone offense and turnovers are our offense's biggest problems (aside from injuries, which we seem to be recovering from now)

The team had more fire it seems. Wether its from the Golden Boy, or from Dre's return, who knows. Its amazing how much better our offense looks with dre.

If AJ is not the answer I would like to know what the question was.

Here is a question for you. If Chuck Norris was to square off against Andre Johnson, who wins?

AJ is without doubt the best player on this team. Even after losing Dunta, having AJ back makes us a better team than weeks 3-10 team.

There is only 1 man in the world Chuck Norris is afraid of and that man is Andre Johnson. Chuck often dreams about being Matt Schaub, not because he wants to be Matt Schaub, but because he is so jealous that Matt is lucky enough to throw him the ball. This is the first time Chuck has ever experienced jealousy in his life.......that's how special AJ is.

I agree in than it's not as much of what he does to get the ball, it's what the other team does to see that he doesn't. His presance on the field immediatly becomes a focal point for the DB/S/LB core to "know where AD is". One extended look by Schaub, or a ball fake and the S/LB will be biting, and opening up the field for the other recievers. He keeps the DB/LB/S honest and keeps the number of blitz opportunities down as well as a solid go to when the obvious blitz is on.

Default Re: AJ is not the answer

Given that I didn't reply to the thread originally, I could say that I knew better too. BUT - the truth is that I agreed with the sentiment of the OP. And then I knew I was wrong when as soon as the players were introduced at Reliant yesterday. The pure joy expressed by the crowd when AJ's name was called, coupled with the body language of the players waiting there to greet him, and heck, and even just the feeling that I got when I saw him run out on the field - I realized just how much this guy means to this team and to this city.

And it just snowballed from there.

I'm a believer now.
