I love me some Andre, but Revis seems to do a good job shutting AJ down, so I might have to put him ahead of AJ right now.

They have only played one time against each other and the pass rush was the much bigger problem that day.

Exactly. We were definitely not ready for their type of "exotic" blitzes.

Having an 8-way tie for 3rd is kinda cheating IMO.

AJ certainly deserves to be on that list. But I doubt the validity of that list with no Chris Johnson or Adrian Petersen.

Very interesting.
As a Texans fan I'm delighted that AJ gets some recognition that he deserves but as we all know too often fails to get. On the down side it's still gotta hurt that we left both Revis & Willis on the Board and took Okoye instead.
There's so many guys not in the top 10 that could be there, but the ones that are there are derseving so what are you gonna do. Just one player I question being rated on that very exclusive list: Joe Thomas ?

I have seen a lot of reports that have Joe Thomas as the #1 OT in the game. In fact Scouts Inc. has him as #1 by a pretty good margin over Long & Clady.

Default Re: Andre Johnson listed as second best player overall in the NFL

How do they have Revis ahead of Aso? Aso's been doing it at the same (or higher) level than Revis, and he's doing it with FAR less pass rush.

They have them tied but yeah. I would probably have Aso a bit higher.

Default Re: Andre Johnson listed as second best player overall in the NFL

I got so ticked when we didn't take Revis that I haven't paid any attention to the draft since. That's when I really knew that watching that will never make me happy. I'm no expert, and I know that of course, but....well, anyway, that was one I really wanted and now I can be all conceited about it.

Yea, but see I hear more about Clady in the last couple years since he came into league than any OT. And Long ? A RT impersonating a LT. FWIW.

To think we could have had Patrick Willis

I know he and DeMeco both play the same position...but something could have been figured out!

It's easy to shut Andre down, when Jenkins is tossing Chris Myers on
his ass, and getting into Schaub's face. Revis's performance was
a large result of Rex Ryan's relentless pass-rushing schemes, and the
pussified blocking of the Texans that day.

Bottom line, don't give Revis too much credit.
