I just find it hard to call Johnson overlooked in 2011, when pretty much any casual NFL fan basically identifies the whole team as "That one Andre Johnson plays for."

The way he works and his similar build to TO , I'd say he has about five more years at a high level . Hopefully the team catches up with him .

I was thinking the same thing. It dawned on me, I'm sure I already knew this but forgot, that 34 must be a magical number in Houston:

Earl Campbell-Houston Oilers-#34
Nolan Ryan-Houston Astros-#34
Hakeem the Dream-Houston Rockets-#34

Too bad AJ can't wear it!!!

I really hope the fact that we never made the playoffs (that is IF Andre never reaches the playoffs) could stop Andre from going into the Hall of Fame. Just look at his numbers and his clutch play. He's done his part.

I honestly believe that if it came down to gametime....and there were no LBs left to trot out on the field, they could look to AJ and he would go in and play LB. And probably end the game with 3 sacks, a pick, 14 tackles and a Defensive player of the week award.

I think Andre solidified a spot in the HOF when he tied Rice for consecutive 1,500+ yard seasons.

Great article. Only thing keeping AJ from a guaranteed spot in Canton is some postseason appearances and hopefully a ring or two.
