This might be a little after the fact, but this season (lets compare apples to apples, neither Davis or Walter had to put up with the 'lets only throw hitches' offense of past regimes) AJ is averaging about 19 yards per catch and he probably had more YAC on that one 70 yard TD then Davis and Walter all season. Most receivers, like Walter, even Marvin Harrison or Reggie Wayne, are great at getting open and getting the ball. But there are a few guys like AJ, TO, Steve Smith, who are not only great at cathing the ball, they are even more dangerous with the ball in their hands. When Harrison gets the ball over the middle he goes down (think Reggie's fetal position yesterday), when Andre gets the ball in the middle of the field, he's looking for the endzone (TD against the Panthers: on one else on our team would have scored on that play). Thats why he is so valuable.

Interesting stat.

WITH Andre Johnson, the Texans are 3-0 and average 110.3 a game RUSHING.

Without AJ, 2-5 and 84.8.

This also the reason we should see the quick hit to AJ with one on one becuase of what he can do to a DB that gives to big of a cushion before or after being burned. And if you don't think that takes a ton off the mind of your QB, you would be mistaken. (not you personally)

I keep seeing "I want Andre back," "Andre will fix everything," etc.

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.
Boo!Ouch!

Problems at runningback AND QB might have something to do with those stats too.

But the point of the thread (which I was wrong about), we have the same OL and RB problems we had 3 weeks ago.

Johnson is a true "difference maker" and one of the top offensive players in the league. He changes how teams have to scheme you. Excellent thread Yankee!
