Yeah...where did the nick come from? With CJ in Detroit having the Megatron nickname, this is just a dumb afterthought, and kinda sad.

That is part of the joke, Optimus Prime is a bit higher in rank and general badassery than Megatron is. It's just saying hes better as a player.

Yep. Nothing wrong with having the 2nd best WR in football. Calvin Johnson has surpassed him this year. Dude is just sick.

Never a doubt he delivers a mean beat down, but you can't deny fact. Well you can, but you would be wrong. I do understand wanting him to be better, he just hasn't been.

If it is even possible that we may need Andre for the Tampa Bay game i'd like to see him on the field Sunday so he can see what its like in a real game situation. A couple of decoy routes a quarter, not really pushing it & see how it goes. If there's anything unusual; tugging, thightening, swelling, pain... then he won't play @Tampa.

If he's good, then we'll push him @Tampa & see how far we can go.

I'm sorry but I would take AJ over CJ anyday of the week. You look at what AJ has done in his career, with the talent he had around him for so many years. A Healthy AJ can still easily lead the league in receiving yards.

I agree over the course of their careers, I would easily go with AJ. I'm just talking as of late.

Regardless, the nickname sucks.

It does suck..... Why would we want to make a spin-off of Calvin Johnson's nickname when Andre is the original? We can do much better than that.

I don't understand risking him playing like this, wait till after the bye week when we play the 2nd half of our AFC South foes and go from there...too much of a risk, just like when Kubes thought Foster was ready earlier this season...

Don't tease a brother like this, man.
It must be so easy to have a job like this. What is he even basing this off of? Kubiak? AJ's waiter last night?

Script 1: All signs point to AJ being active barring setback.

Script 2: All signs point to AJ being inactive barring any changes.

Which is why it doesn't bother me that they are saying CJ is the best right now.

AJ was "named" the best receiver in the league when Ocho Cinco, Larry Fitzgerald, & Randy Moss was in the league & doing their thing. Each of those guys have had single seasons that were better than Andre's. But over the course of his career, Andre is clearly the best.

Cj may have a better season & might be the "best" receiver this year but he has yet to put up a career that matches Andre's, so we'll see.

What's the risk?

This isn't a regular "hamstring" injury, there is nothing to "reaggravate" the tendon was completely cut, not reattached. It's not like he can tear it again.
